• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

Does anyone have a link to the Geobox engine download?

Old topic!
The last post in this thread is over 60 days old. Posting in this thread will be considered a bump, so please make an attempt to be courteous if you go ahead with it.

If the last post is over 6 months old, it may instead be a better idea to start a new topic. If you aren't sure about what to do, feel free to ask a staff member for help, or try to locate a 'general questions'-type thread if it exists in this (sub-)forum.

I saw this glorious engine and i want to try it out, but there are no links anywhere. but i found out that he PMed links to certain people if they asked, so i am wondering if anyone has one. I don't know if this forum is still alive. This is my first post on the cave story forum so i don't know if this post is breaking rules or not. Last time the creator of Geobox ever came online was like 2015 so i doubt anyone will have one.

Note: I made my name before I even knew the creator of Cave Story's name so i'm not trying to imitate him. Hope I don't cause any confusion.

actually i've had the same experience but as far as i know the creator just kinda stopped existing
his site's shut down, and his last post on twitter was like months ago

also yea you're doing forum stuff alright, and i wouldn't call this place dead but i think the discord is more active

i do have the link for the demo of the cave story thing being made in geobox if you want that, but there isn't much to it

It was mostly complete, but the creator wanted to write comprehensive docs and a demo game before releasing it. Needless to say this never happened. If you can track him down and convince him to release it then please do so.

i know, but he had already released the editor already but only to people who asked him in a thread in 2015, but there are people who still have it who have gotten on recently, so i am pming them asking if they can share the link.

I actually read through the (available) documentation today for the first time and I gotta say this engine is: wild
i'm not surprised it never got finished

@ the creator if you ever read this: I dont want to throw too much shade by that statement but i'm seeing what could be a pattern of "overdesigned to exhaustion"

Don't want to break any rules posting here after so much time, but I want to ask you if you obtained the link by those people. If yes, could you share it with me?
Sorry if I broke any rules.

You really didn't. If a banner at the top of the thread that looks like this

It's gone because he just posted so obviously the last post was less than 6 months ago now. But check the dates.
Anyway it's fine if you are both courteous and have something to contribute as is the case here
