Thread: GameVision Toolkit 2.0

  1. #1

    Post GameVision Toolkit 2.0

    GameVision Toolkit (GVT) is an advanced 2D Delphi based game library for PC's running Microsoft Windows® and uses Direct3D® for hardware accelerated rendering. It's robust, designed for easy use and suitable for making all types of 2D games and other graphic simulations, You access the features from a simple and intuitive procedural API, to allow you to rapidly and efficiently develop your graphics simulations. There is support for buffers, bitmaps, audio samples, streaming music, video playback, loading resources directly from a standard zip archive, and much more.

    It began life back in the mid 1990's as a high speed rendering library and over the years evolved into a game application framework with many nice features that allow you to make a complete game project. I enjoy the space shooter genre, so all of my games have been been of this type.

    Twenty years ago (Doh!) this year, GV 1.x was used to make FreeStrike. The new 2.x releases on GitHub is the evolution of the product bringing new features and support for modern hardware. The first project I plan to do with the updated version will be FreeStrike 2.

    The main repo on GitHub will always have the latest commit. I'm working on a testbed example showcasing feature. If you care to test it, I would be great to know if things are working on different computer configurations.
    This link will take you to the GitHub repo.

    Delphi is twenty 26 years old this year. I've been using Pascal since the Turbo Pascal days, every version from Turbo Pascal 3.03 to the latest version of Delphi. Been making games/gamedev tools since the mid 90s. Phew, time flies.

    Made it in the Delphi 26th Birthday Showcase Challenge. If you could like and retweet to hopefully have a chance at the grand prize. Thanks in advance.

    Here is a mock-up for GVEdit, which will be a light-weight code editor for Lua scripting. GVT has robust Lua (LuaJit) integration.
