Hey everyone.
For those of you who have used it, how good is hsp in terms of what it can offer and what are the advantages of using it?
Also, is there any sort of english documentation or guides available?
Finally, can someone please give a direct link to the setup file? For whatever reason, google translate won’t properly translate the website.
Thanks in advance.

Advantages:
Very easy syntax
Easy to compile / run
dll support + lots of bundled libraries

Disadvantages:
Everything is in Japanese including the manual / references
The bundled audio library is poor
Slower compared to other modern scripting languages (but it's enough BK3 to work)
C callback is not supported
Multithreading / coroutine are not supported (coroutine is future work according to the dev)
Unicode support is poor
Variable management is poor(the auto memory allocation sometimes works stupidly, no GC, almost no local variables)
Recursive call is not supported (256 recursion destroys the stack)
Not object-oriented at all (They provide similar functionality called module variables, but it's too buggy to use)
So, consider these and good luck with that guy.

You need to input your email, uncheck the next checkbox (whether to receive update info via email?), then press "free download hsp".

I really tend to miss direct messages. If you want to contact me privately, please send an email instead of a direct message.

There is actually an English guide, though it doesn't appear to be very well translated. You can find it here.

I had quite a luck with HSP. Unicode worked well for me. Yeah, it took me some efford but it worked, yay!
