Welcome guests, visitors and staff members to DGDev,
This is my first official News post as a member of the DGDev's Management. Most members and now staff here at DGDev who have been visiting and contributing to it over the last year or so may have come across a recent post I made on August 1st, 2003 not too long after I myself became a basic member here. This thread led to the eventual merger of two of the more popular Delphi Game Development sites on the net within our rather thinly spread out community. The practice of designing and creating games with the use of Delphi is nothing new in fact it is a growing sub-culture of the game development world it's self. Now more than ever I think that Delphi and Kylix are becoming more and more accepted as a means to make games.
Not only have the members from each of the two site projects been merging into one team, but we are also in the process of designing a new and improved and unified website that will feature staff-written articles, staff-submitted tutorials, a continuation of DGDev's renouned and well loved forums, Pascal/Game Development related news posts and many other features to follow.
These changes are intended to take the best of both sites and what else is missing from the actual community and provide that in a fresh, yet familiar enviroment to the programmers and other developers. In this new bold move, we aim to grow from what we are now into whatever else we can be as a development community. We wish to not only be a site with related information, but a gathering with a culture.
Pascal based development teams are gradually becoming more common place then they were about 6 years ago when information on DirectX alone in Delphi was quite sparse. And these groups will need resources and material to learn from and a format to converse on ideas, technical questions and other areas of discussion. The new DGDev aims to be just that.
DGDev is the home of Delphi Games Development.
