View Full Version : What needs for Delphi 7?

27-03-2004, 06:08 AM
I am new to game programming but a little experianced with Delphi. I have a question about DirectX and OpenGL.
What do I need for Delphi 7 to use DirectX, from the start. I've downloaded the DirectX 9 SDK and installed it, do I have to put some path into Delphi's library path and just this? or I have to find some translated headers (like DelphiX) and if yes wich is the most flexible, productive and updated for DirectX9?
And If I want to use OpenGL the same question what I have to install and do to use it in Delphi?
I'm from Greece and me and 4 other programmers are trying to start and create a game but from the beginning. As for modeling I am who will made it and I use 3D Studio Max, is there any other 3D application for the same job but more flexible?

thank you

You can get DirectX 9 Headers for Delphi from Clootie's Graphics Page (http://clootie.narod.ru/)

For OpenGL you have a few options:

JEDI-SDL (http://sourceforge.net/projects/jedi-sdl/) for 3D and 2D Plus it has a ton of other gamming components and objects

GLScene (http://glscene.sourceforge.net/index.php) great for 3D

GLXTreem(you'll have to find the site) good for 3D


A3D(you'll have to find the site) obviously 3D ;)

Delgine Project (http://www.delgine.com/) which is a 3D Editor/Engine Project.

When in doubt try searching on these sites:
www.google.com keywords = Delphi & OpenGL || DirectX
www.dgdev.net & www.delphigamer.com (in the middle of a merger)

There ya go, hope I've been of some help. Good luck with your future game development projects and please, Let us know about them! :) We may even decide to feature it on this very site in the comming months. Who knows...
