Is the Double Dragon Engine or Construction Set Available

Post by cydriic »

Hello everyone, I am totally new to this Website, which I love as I am a HUGE Double Dragon Fan.

I was wondering if anyone knew about a construction to create a Double Dragon Style Game or Mod, just like the Elder Scrolls Construction Set.

Where you could add tilesets and characters and basically create a new game just like Double Dragon.


Thanks in Advance!

Sadly not, but let's hope that someone out there hears our requests for one!

Well, my engine can do that in theory.

However, there's no documentation or MOD examples available for now.

Cleber, is there any chance of making this compatible with Windows 7? I can't seem to get it working at all and I'd love to give the map editor a try.

Hm, I thought it was working with Windows 7 already.
Sure I will take a look.

The game engine is working, but the map editor is crashing on Windows 7 indeed.
It's the exact same problem that made DDF fail to work on Vista / 7 before.
I know exactly how to fix it, but it will require a few deeper changes in the code. It will be fixed, but it will take some time.

For now you can run it using the compatibility mode. Right click the executable - Properties - Compatibility
Set the compatibility mode to Windows 98
Mark "Deactivate Visual Themes", "Deactivate Desktop Composite" and "Run as Administrator"

Hi Cleber, sorry to be a pain but I'm still having problems. When I run the DDFLauncher.exe file, I get a parameter is incorrect message and when I run the mapedit.exe file the screen goes black as is the program is starting but then just closes.

It won't run because there's no MOD.
You need to put the latest DDF mod with it.
Someone posted a link in the DDF 0.9.1 thread.
