What is it?

     Welcome to the web page of the Tennacles project. Tennacles is a tool which will aid artists and designers in the creation of adventure games through a visual integrated development environment. The generated data can be exported to available existent game engines which will play the data.

Development in Spanish?

     Tennacles is a tool developed by Grzegorz Adam Hankiewicz as a Computer Science Engineer graduating project for the Spanish university ESIDE. Since the 13th of November of 2002 I have been waiting to recieve the final answer to my petition of publishing all the documentation and source code in English. The answer has reached the 27th of March of 2003, and is a plain NO. Therefore I have translated all to Spanish, and once I'm free from my university I will translate all to English again. If you don't understand Spanish, you will have to wait patiently.

Documentation of the project

The oral defense of this project was done the 10th of June of 2003, at 12:00 in the presence of three teachers who had evaluate individually the project. I'm still unaware of the academic result. Since the engineering methodologies taught at university are oriented towards design rather than implementation, I have presented around hundred pages of paper plus a measly 1651 lines of Python code which implemented the visual interface for the user and a few basic operations described in the documentation.

You can get the Spanish documentation in PDF format and the source code, which I have only tested under Linux and requires (at the moment of writting this) the latest versions of Python, GTK+ 2.0, Allegro plus addons and PyGTK, possibly some CVS version. So the source is rather unusable, but you can peek at it and see some nice spaghetti.

What now?

The project has been done, but the result is not usable for end users. Currently I have to deal with some other things of real life (like getting a life), and have decided to freeze Tennacles. I will come here hopefully before 2004 and continue where I left, this time focusing on implementation rather than documentation.
