Hello all,
I'm programming in Pascal for over 25 years now. Started in Turbo Pascal, switched to Delphi 5 and now I'm at Delphi Ria (10.3).
Developing a tool to easily assemble our rollercoasters from scratch took a lot of time. Drawing lines and circles on a canvas...

Now I'm starting to develop a robot simulation program to help our engineers in visualizing the production process. Starting of in the complete new world of GLScene! First I want to build an engine that feels comfortable viewing from every site of the model. After that the manipulation of the model.

Hoping to get some answers here for a problem I am having for some time, and nothing works.

Unable to get freepascal and lua to play along, and as much as I want to use pascal, if i cannot get it to work, i will have to learn c in order to do what i need to do.

Need help to get freepascal and lua to work together. Since the first post, I managed to get freepascal to load lua. Now I am trying to load a freepascal module using lua. I know it can be done using C either way, and I managed to get half way so far with fpc.

Cut my pascal teeth on Borland Turbo Pascal 5.x-ish, spent a few decades in IT doing everything but coding for a living. Getting long in the tooth now and been toying with the idea of moving back into coding. Been toying with Delphi and Lazarus for the last few weeks trying to refresh my long defunct memory. :-) Also considering getting more into full stack web dev since I have some experience with JavaScript, but I love the power and flexibility of compiled languages and was very happy to see that pascal still has an active community (considering its age and newer languages that are trying to hammer more nails into the coffins of the old school languages {COBOL will live forever lol}). Look forward to getting to know everyone. Happy coding. :-[

Welcome to PGD!
While Pascal is an old language you will quickly find out that new pascal dialects like Delphi and FeePascal actually have tons of new features that you can also see in other modern languages like, Wide Strings (UniCode string support,) Advanced Reference Counting (mainly for mobile platforms in Delphi), Enumerations (for in loops) Generics, Multiple Inheritance, Inline variable declaration (newest Delphi versions) and more.
So getting back from Turbo Pascal era will require you to learn a lot of new things. But don't let this discourage you. If you loved Turbo Pascal I'm sure you will at lest like modern Pascal dialects. There still isn't a thing that you could do in other languages but could not do in modern Pascal Dialects.

By the way we also have Discord server (Athena's Pad (https://discord.gg/HnNpCxG)) set up so feel free to join us there. There is more activity there as it is here on the site.

Well, I'm so happy that I can find a community of freepascal, because there are very few communities like this in China.

Hello everybody,

New guy here.
My name is Dennis and I am developing Sprite DLight (http://www.2deegameart.com/p/sprite-dlight.html), a tool for game developers that makes it easy to use dynamic lighting by generating normal maps for sprites automatically.
It's beeing developed in Lazarus / FPC, so it will be available for Win, Mac and Linux.
Looking forward to being a member of this community.

Dear Chairpeople at this site!

I arrived here when I looked for Pascal and a modern OpenGL. The version used in the fine book by Jon Q. Jacobs is what I have used up to now.

Hopefully you allow me to enter.

Does anyone know the physics engine for Delphi FMX?

15-12-2020, 02:11 PM
I have been writing programs for 28 years
I started programming with Gw-Bisc in DOS, then moved on to Turbo C and learned at Pascal University.
I went to Delphi for Windows programming.
I wrote several games in DOS, but in Delphi I worked mostly on databases and tools
Now I have decided to write a game with Delphi. I have written a few simple games with FMX, but this tool is not enough
This link is my last work


Sorry, my English is bad!

15-12-2020, 09:03 PM
Does anyone know the physics engine for Delphi FMX?

Which version od Delphi do you have?
Latest few versions come with samples that make use of third-party Box2D physics engine. As far as I know Box2D is compatible with all platforms that Delphi supports (Windows, Mac OS, iOS, Android, and probably Linux as well)

i want 3D physics engine

16-12-2020, 08:07 PM
i want 3D physics engine

In that case you might want to check:

Newton Game Dynamics Engine headers for which you can find here: https://www.saschawillems.de/pages/newton/delphipascal-header/
Kraft Physics Engine that is entirely built using pascal language. You can find it on Github: https://github.com/BeRo1985/kraft

And if you are thinking about making a 3D game you might want to consider using Castle Game Engine instead of FMX.
Castle Game Engine is written in Object Pascal and uses the above mentioned Kraft Physics Engine. By using CGE you will also get much better graphical performance since its renderer is much more optimized than the one from FMX. Not to mention that it offers a lot of other game related features that you would have to implement by yourself for FMX.

17-12-2020, 01:31 PM
Yes, I have seen Castle Game Engine before and run it in Lazarus.
Unfortunately, I could not configure Lazarus 2.0.8 to build Android and iOS applications.
That's why I didn't use CGE, I even tried to change the CGE to Delphi, but the language structure is different.
For example, in Delphi, the property can only be used inside the class, but not in FPC, and so on.

Hello there! I'm new if it wasn't previously obvious, i recently got back into pascal, and decided a text based RPG would be a good way to start. So far its relatively new, still scraping off some rust. I hadn't learnt more than unextended pascal, so discovering object-oriented pascal, lazarus IDE and all these new variations, was exciting to say the least. I intend to complete this CLI project, then move towards object oriented pascal and hopefully make a GUI adaption of it. When i found there was a community of pascal game developers, I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn, and to maybe share what I make in hopes of some constructive criticism :) I intend to be an active member, and am willing to help in any way i can. For anyone interested, the alpha 1.0 is on sourceforge, titled RDGN, will be updating it regularly :D

05-02-2021, 05:19 PM
hi everyone,
Just found this forum after looking for information about SDL2 and possible use of filter shaders (aka crt for example), I am sure I am going to learn a lot here, thanks

13-02-2021, 01:01 PM
Good to find a forum related to pascal. I'm writing software for a cards game - just for fun and without commercial interest but nevertheless with corona motivated ambition:)

I have a front-end server written in JavaScript and a backend-server written in Lazarus Pascal. Both need to send messages to each other. The data to be transferred are coded in JSON. I think Sockets could do the job. Does anybody has experience in such a scenario or could give me a hint how to achieve this. Would be very much appreciated!

I am using fpc lazarus in linux environment to build a game to my grand children. And I need to dive deeper into maths. Before my retirement I worked a lot with Oracle PL/SQL which has some similarities with pascal. And also a great deal of javascript. But coding a game is another universe! I look förward to take part of your experiance!
