Fenix

From Bennu Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Fenix is an SDL-based virtual machine, based on the language and behaviour of DIV Games Studio, an obsolete DOS-based game creation suite. It is specially designed for programming games, much like DIV was, though unlike DIV, it can easily be used for any purpose.

Because Fenix is an SDL-based virtual machine, its portability is high and as such it runs on many platforms, including Microsoft Windows, Linux, BeOS, MacOS, GP32 (and GP2X), Sega Dreamcast, BSD.

Fenix hasn't advanced for some years, but fortunately there is a Fenix 0.93 fork called Bennu. This fork has everything the latest Fenix has, but is actually still active. Development continues and numerous fixes and features have been done. If you are using Fenix, you would probably be better of using Bennu.

Latest version

The latest official version is 0.92a and the latest unofficial version is 0.93 Preview 9.
