I stumbled across a post on /r/VoxelGameDev a few weeks back and 
recognized the handle of MrSmith33 from these forums. That 
prompted me to click through and I was DlighteD to discover it 
was created with that language I can't seem to stop writing about.

Thanks for doing this blog post, Mike!
It doesn't build under linux. Problem with dlib. I don't blame your personally but the last time a blog post presented a game (it was the one made by the author of dlib) there was also a similar problem. Were you aware that something gonna be posted and that necessarily people would try to build it ?

I haven't really got to building the whole thing on linux. For full functionality it needs LMDB, LZ4, GLFW3, Enet and IMGUI libs. Ideally there should be a linux build with all dependencies in releases.

No, I don't think the deps are necessary. That's a bit what's cool with linux OSes. What I mean is that there's a compilation error related to dlib: dub build --build=release Performing "release" build using dmd for x86_64. cbor-d 0.5.4: target for configuration "library" is up to date. derelict-util 2.0.6: target for configuration "library" is up to date. derelict-enet 2.0.0: target for configuration "library" is up to date. derelict-gl3 1.0.18: target for configuration "library" is up to date. derelict-glfw3 2.0.0: target for configuration "derelict-glfw3-dynamic" is up to date. dlib ~master: building configuration "library"... deps/dlib/dlib/filesystem/delegaterange.d(62,18): Error: function dlib.filesystem.delegaterange.DelegateInputRange!(DirEntry).Delega eInputRange.opApply does not override any function, did you mean to override 'std.range.interfaces.InputRange!(DirEntry).InputRange.opApply'? deps/dlib/dlib/filesystem/delegaterange.d(75,18): Error: function dlib.filesystem.delegaterange.DelegateInputRange!(DirEntry).Delega eInputRange.opApply does not override any function, did you mean to override 'std.range.interfaces.InputRange!(DirEntry).InputRange.opApply'? deps/dlib/dlib/filesystem/dirrange.d(35,7): Error: template instance dlib.filesystem.delegaterange.DelegateInputRange!(DirEntry) error instantiating dlib.container.aarray is deprecated, use dlib.container.dict instead dmd failed with exit code 1. Just an advice to Mike Parker. If it's possible, next time a project is highlighted you could try to contact the person before publishing the post so that people are not disappointed when they try to build the stuff.

Thanks, but I already do that.

What's your compiler version? Many libraries and projects are not building with dmd 2.072 yet, but they build fine with dmd 2.071.

I've fixed compilation on linux on 2.072. However you need to use --DRT-oncycle=ignore when starting, due to new cycle handling in 2.072.
