Hi Hayden,
Genesis is a game engine I am rewriting in C++. Basically, that means it is a piece of software that contains all of the core components of a game such as input, audio, game physics, game menus, etc. All of the core functionality is contained in the engine, but to create new games you can use a level editor to create new special items, characgters, levels, etc while the game mechanics are handled by the engine itself. I guess the closest thing you might understand to what I'm doing is the Audio Game Toolkit which used a level editor and xml settings to create new games, but the core functionality of the game was in its engine. does that make sense?

Hi Thomas,
This might be the wrong thread, but I have a question about the Genesis
Engine. What, exactly, is its purpose? I did at first think it was a new
computer language, but when you mentioned porting it from C #.net to C ++...
What does it do that the basic languages don't? Don't mean to pry, but I am
