Orx 1.2正式发布

经历了长达两个月的多次延期,历经iarwain的1984次更新,发布前的多次通宵奋斗,Orx 1.2终于正式发布了。。。。。。。。。。

 

作者的发布宣言在这里:http://orx-project.org/component/content/article/1-orx/65-orx-v12-has-been-released

 

新版本的下载地址在这里:http://sourceforge.net/projects/orx/files/orx/orx%20-%201.2%20%281984%29/

 

说实话,因为Orx目前没有好的工程文件管理系统,而又需要同时支持如此多的平台,iarwain光是为各个平台打包都花费了较长的时间。真希望有精通CMake的人能够帮他一把。将整个过程实现自动化。

 

新版本的Orx已经支持了目前所有的流行平台,添加了custom font和unicode支持,已经可以很好的显示中文及各类工具生成美化过的英文,iarwain为unicode的显示还自己写了一个字体工具,并且以zlib这样一个非常自由的协议发布。Have Fun!

Intro
-----

Orx is a 2D-oriented, data-driven, portable game engine focused primarily on extreme ease of use.

This is the final release for orx v1.2. If you find any bugs,
please report them at http://forum.orx-project.org, on the "Bug report - Feature request" board,
or via orx's SourceForge page/tracker.

The current features of orx engine are:
- hardware-accelerated rendering that provides: translation, anisotropic scale, rotation,
  transparency (alpha blending), different blending modes, coloring, tiling and mirroring
- automatic differential scrolling and depth scaling upon request
- animation engine (including a chaining graph & custom animation events for synchronization)
- fragment (pixel) shader support
- collision handling and rigid body physics
- generic input system that abstracts keyboard, mouse, joystick, touch and accelerometer inputs
- powerful config system that makes orx data-driven and provides an easy to use load/save system
- powerful localization module
- camera/viewport scheme allowing multiple views displayed with camera translation, zoom and rotation
- visual FXs based on curve combinations
- spawners (provides an easy way to create particles or projectiles)
- 3D positioning using "scene nodes"
- custom bitmap font support
- music and spatialized sound support
- clock system that provides time consistency and allows time stretching + high precision timers
- event manager
- unicode support with UTF-8 encoding
- plugin system
- screenshot capture tool (supports bmp, png, jpg, tga and dds)

See ./doc/html directory for the doxygen documentation of orx's API.

You can find details about the tutorials (as well as community-made ones) and the data-driven side of orx
(ie. how to use the config system) on orx's wiki at: http://wiki.orx-project.org

The English version is the most complete one, Chinese and Spanish translations are being written by community members.

Supported Platforms
-------------------

The engine compiles and is tested for:
- Linux (x86/x86-64 with codelite)
- Win32 (msvs2005, msvs2008, msvs2010 and mingw32 with code::blocks or codelite)
- MacOS X (ppc/x86 with xcode), version 10.5+ for GLFW plugins (default version) and 10.4+ for SFML ones (no joystick support).
- iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad (simulator & device with xcode)

The GP2X target is in debug stage and is not currently actively developed/maintained.

Versions
--------

Those are not revision versions but link/run versions.
Orx library can be compiled as a static or a dynamic library.
In addition to these modes, orx can be compiled as an embedded version or not.

Orx's core is basically platform-independent. All the platform/OS-dependent features
are implemented via plugins. These plugins can be loaded at runtime (hotplug) or
they can be embedded at linktime.

If you use the non-embedded versions, you'll have to specify which plugins to use.
This is more flexible but also requires additional files (the plugins themselves).
The embedded version will store everything in orx's library, meaning you won't be able
to choose which plugin to use at runtime, but will also be more compact. This will
also make orx run considerably faster.

From the download page you'll find precompiled binaries for Win32, Linux (x86) and MacOS X (ppc/x86)
using the dynamic embedded versions only.
If you want to use the non-embedded versions (to use with your own plugins)
or the static ones, you'll need to compile orx yourself from the source.
Everything compiles out-of-the-box for the hardware platforms cited above.

The embedded versions currently use:
- GLFW-based (+SOIL) plugins for display, joystick, keyboard and mouse for all non-iPhone platforms
- OpenAL-based (+libsndfile/stb_vorbis) plugins for sound
- Box2D-based plugin for physics
- homemade plugin for 2D rendering

- OpenGL/OpenAL-based plugins for display and sound on iPhone
- Touch/MultiTouch-based plugin for mouse on iPhone
- Accelerometer-based plugin for joystick on iPhone

Packages
--------

You can download all the packages from sourceforge (http://orx.sf.net).
Here is a list with a small description for each package.

- orx-doc-1.2.zip: orx's API doxygen documentation + PDF version of the English wiki (detailed tutorials and config system)

- orx-src-1.2.zip: orx's source code including build projects for
  . code::blocks (Win32 only, non-embedded versions)
  . codelite (Win32 and Linux, all versions)
  . msvs2005, msvs2008 & msvs2010 (Win32 Visual Studio, all versions)
  . xcode (2.4+, for MacOS X, non-static versions, for iPhone/iPod Touch, static embedded versions)
NB: You'll need orx-extern-1.2.zip (orx plugins' external dependencies) if you intend to compile orx yourself.

- orx-extern-1.2.zip: orx's external dependencies. You will only *NEED* these if you
use orx-src-1.2.zip and you plan on compiling orx yourself. They are not neeeded otherwise.
The external libraries are usually modified versions of the original ones.
VERY IMPORTANT: If you want to compile orx yourself, you'll need these versions and not the official ones.
Warning for slow connections: this package is ~67MB.

- orx-tools-1.2.zip: orx's additional set of tools (Win32, Linux and MacOS X) containing:
  . orxCrypt  : command line tool to encrypt/decrypt/merge multiple config files

All the *-tutorial-* packages above include:
 . heavily commented source code for 11 basic and advanced tutorials
 . precompiled binaries (orx link library, orx runtime library and launcher, external runtime library)
 . headers to include at compile time
 . Template files exposing wich properties can be accessed using the config system (for user reference only, not needed by orx)
 . project files (xcode (MacOS X), codelite (Win32 mingw & Linux x86), msvs2005 & msvs2008)

NB: Most of the binaries have been packed using UPX (http://upx.sf.net) for the sake of bandwidth.
You can unpack them (upx -d) if you feel like it, but it shouldn't affect their execution anyway.

Compiling
---------
 
The easiest way to learn how to compile your project using orx for a given platform
is to look at the tutorial build project files. If you want to use another version
(tutorials use the dynamic embedded versions of orx), please look at
orx's launcher (main executable) build project file.

The debug version is far slower than the release one, but will output all the warning
and error messages useful for debugging.

Here's a quick list of the available compile preprocessor flags:
- __orxDEBUG__    : used to compile and link against the debug versions of orx library
                    (liborxd.a / orxd.lib / liborxd.dylib), if not specified it refers to
                    the release versions (liborx.a / orx.lib / liborx.dylib).
                    NB: If you want to link against the debug versions of orx library, you need
                    to specify it to your compiler!

- __orxSTATIC__   : used to compile and link against the static versions of orx library.
                    NB: If you want to link against the static versions of orx library, you need
                    to specify it to your compiler!

- __orxEMBEDDED__ : used to compile the embedded versions of orx library.
                    NB: this flag is *ONLY* needed when compiling orx library, not when linking
                    against it.

- __orxFREEBASIC__: used to compile and link the freebasic version of orx, still WIP.

There are other preprocessor flags used when compiling the orx library,
but those should be easy enough to decipher.
However, you might want to specify them manually for cross-compiling or
use them so that your code will behave differently depending on the architecture
for which you're compiling. Here's a quick list of these flags:
- __orxPPC__          : orx is being compiled for a PowerPC architecture
- __orxX86_64__       : orx is being compiled for a x86-64 architecture
- __orxLITTLE_ENDIAN  : orx is being compiled for a little endian architecture
- __orxBIG_ENDIAN     : orx is being compiled for a big endian architecture
- __orxGCC__          : orx is being compiled with gcc
- __orxMSVC__         : orx is being compiled with visual studio C/C++
- __orxWINDOWS__      : orx is being compiled for Win32
- __orxLINUX__        : orx is being compiled for Linux (x86)
- __orxMAC__          : orx is being compiled for MacOS X (ppc/x86)
- __orxIPHONE__       : orx is being compiled for iPhone/iPod Touch
- __orxWII__          : orx is being compiled for Wii
- __orxGP2X__         : orx is being compiled for GP2X (gcc-arm)
- __orxCPP__          : orx is being compiled with a C++ compiler
- __orxOBJC__         : orx is being compiled with an Objective-C compiler
- __orxFREEBASIC__    : orx is being compiled for FreeBasic
- __orxPLUGIN__       : a plugin for orx is being compiled
- __orxEXTERN__       : code using orx's library is being compiled
