In addition to the easy to learn programming language yab came a second interesting language, emphasis Arcade Games, the Haiku platform recently.
This refers EGSL (Easy Game scripting with Lua) which was written in Pascal and Lua scripts can execute. As with yab, a Lua script to be served by EGSL Binarie and are obtained in this way an executable program file. In addition, the programmer has incorporated various additional functions that creating 2D games simplistic.
On Haikuware games were published as “Wallman”, “Astro Rocks” and “Brick Master”.

Unfortunately EGSL is among the latest nightly builds of Haiku not execute what it goes back that folder structures have changed and write privileges have been changed.
As the developer of EGSL his first project in favor of a newer EGSL successor called Pulsar 2D has put into the drawer and you therefore can not expect a new build of this page, it would be nice if we could get this project in favor Haiku alive. The source code is freely available.
Unfortunately, my attempts have all failed, it falls short because often at the installation of the right components that are needed to compile the Pascal program. Just know me so not enough.
Since this is just for beginners is an interesting language (just like Yab), it would be nice if would be available for future Haiku.
