    Welcome to the Free Pascal forum!

    All things Free Pascal can be discussed here.

    For those not familiar with it you can visit it's web page here: Free Pascal Website.

    Welcome to the Free Pascal forum!

    This compiler ROCKS !!!

    It's nearly ideal for a low-cost games programming (at least for projects where you don't need VCL). And the performance is nearly equal to Delphi.

    The DGDev Team, which I'm a proud member of, will soon release its second game, compiled with FreePascal

    I don't know about the compiler but it's the awful IDE managed to scare me away.

    Oh yes, I was not talking about the IDE. But I'm used to code in Java using Textpad, so FP is fine too

    use the freeware IDE called Programmers Notepad:
    http://www.pnotepad.org/

    There are a few others some even compile it for you (altho I think PNotepad can do that too if configured), but mostly they don't compile it my way!
    Do it by the book, but be the author!

    Or if you are using it in a win-32 platform. Dev-pascal from Bloodshed os a great freeware IDE.

    Maybe someone can make a Gamer's IDE for it?

    Welcome to the Free Pascal forum!

    I made a small notepad like IDE for FreePascal once with SynEdit. Pressing F9 even compiled the code (though this feature was a bit buggy).

    I guess what I want to say is that it shouldn't be to hard to make a minimalistic IDE yourself if you want to.

    I once started an IDE, however I didn't have the time to finish it... worked pretty well too, well as long as you didn't try to save the project since that didn't go well yet!

    Lazarus

    As to the IDE problem, use Lazarus -> www.lazarus.freepascal.org It's a Delphi clone IDE working both under Win32/Unices. It has it's own LCL(clone of VCL) which is almost complete.

    Both FPC and Lazarus are not yet done but once they will finish Delphi will be a bad memory...
