Essential Software for Game Developers

DimensioneX Developer's Reference

Documentation for developing games on DimensioneX, a PDF document. 

 

DimensioneX-to-Facebook KIT (PHP)

Seamlessly transforms any DimensioneX game into a fully-featured Facebook Game App such as this one.
Includes the super-easy DimensioneX Ajax package (usable also on other projects of yours!).

Requirements: Needs to be installed on a PHP+mySQL webspace

Journal to RSS converter PHP script

Converts on-the-fly any DimensioneX game's journal (plain text format, proprietary) into a standard RSS feed.
The resulting RSS feed can then be piped via twitterfeed.com or hootsuite.com for great Web 2.0 reuse (Facebook pages, Twitter, you name it).

Requirements: Needs to be installed on a PHP website

TextPad (highly recommended!)

It's a very good and light text editor. Avoid using Windows Notepad (which can't save UTF-8 text format). Use this one to produce games in local language. Great ease of use in only 2.5 MB and colored syntax helper extension available.
