What should I use?

Post by noelleionscowl » Fri Sep 24, 2010 11:58 pm

I have a mac. I would like to develop TMW software (e.g. manaplus for mac), new maps, sounds, graphics, the whole nine yards.

What programs should I use? they have to be free, or someone else can pay for them.

maps: tiled is suitable for tmw:mapeditor.org

Graphics: gimp (is that avalable on mac as well?)

programming: a texteditor of choice

I have no experience with developing software on mac myself, but our past Mac developers used Xcode AFAIK.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

I've talked with various people that know about this, and using anything else is pointless, as the compiled programs will only work with a specific subversion of OSX. They said a simple update can prevent them from working.
