I gave it a quick spin with Witchaven and looks great so far.

The VSync stuttering has improved a lot, it runs a lot better, but still feels stuttery. Disabling VSync and capping the FPS also doesn't feel right. If I limit the game to 60fps, it feels like it's running at 30fps, I have to set it to 120fps to get the game and controls feeling as snappy as 60fps should be.

Also, windowed and fullscreen work fine, however borderless just uses fullscreen. And here is where stuff turns awesome for me, the Borderless Gaming app seems to be working again, and adding WhGDX to the list won't make the launcher borderless taking the whole screen :D

EDIT: There's a bug that is still in. The player takes damage whenever any sprite entity takes a hit from enemy fireballs. I don't know if this is true for other enemy projectiles like the witches. Video proof

What does the roadmap for BuildGDX look like? I know you said you'll work on Blood but what comes next?

Not yet. For now you can put the port into a game folder and uncheck "always show this window at startup. Next time it will go straight to the game.

The games that already had standalone releases will be added first obviously. After Blood, it only leaves RR. I would expect Duke next since it was pretty much playable the last time I checked.

Yeah, I figured that'd be the case for adding more games, but I also mean new engine features like software renderer

Software renderer also will be here. And when I will complete it, I just need to release only one port - BuildGdx, and all of my port will have software renderer. This is the main advantage of my multiport

Great! This makes my custom portable version obsolete since we now have an official standalone version that doesn't require Java to be installed! And on top of that all GDX games will be united under one roof. Good job! :D

Can you check why the upscale pack in this thread won’t work with this release?

Because I forgot to enable def handler in game class :) It's just load and that's all

Thank you for the Hi res scaling fix and being able to release it so soon. I was going to make a separate version pre-scaled to powers of 2 but thanks to this release such a thing is now redundant :D

TekWarGDX is playable with this multilauncher, but the default keyboard turn speed is really low, much lower than moving straight forward and backward. Is there any way to change that?

Great work!

I have some bugs in Tekwar from the 1st level to report. Gibbed enemies seemingly aren't dropping keycards, and the flamethrower is constantly playing it's firing animation.

Build and all known ports have always behaved funky with joystick movement. IMO @M210 you should think about possibly forcing joysticks to work exactly the same as button presses.

Just checked out newest BuildGDX. keyboard turn speed in TekWar is still way to slow.

DukeGDX (didn't test the others yet, but I presume they're the same) has very nice joystick support, provided you edit the turning and look speed in the cfg file (the in-game menu's maximum settings is still much too slow)

I almost didn't fix bugs in latest ports, I just added dukegdx and rrgdx. So I will fix bugs in the next release

Which files from Duke3D and Redneck Rampage do you need to make them work in BuildGDX v1.02? Just the .grp files?
Does the latest build also support the addons (Nuclear Winter, Caribbean, Rides Again, Route 66)?
