Thread: need a good 2d library

    need a good 2d library

    Hello all,

    I am trying to write a remake of an old (1990 vintage) game called "Close Combat",

    While i am an experienced programmmer, i am having dificulties.

    I dont like delphi or lazarus environment (i feel claustrophobic using then) or any kind of RAD tool or paradigm.

    So i am stuck...

    I tested Andorra 2D and liked it a lot (Very simple and easy to use indeed !) but it needs (or looks like it needs) Lazarus/Delphi to work...

    It's there any way to use Andorra 2D from pure FreePascal ? Or any other library that does this ?

    Thanks in advance,
    J. Aldo

    You can use Andorra 2D with any text editor and without any RAD tool but it would still need to depend on some Lazarus/Delphi units.
    Same applies to other libraries like Phoenix and Asphyre.

    Alternatively you could try to use SDL and write your own little library around that.

    With Andorra 2D just have a look at the Non-VCL demo. This one only depends on the "Classes" and "SysUtils" Units, which are always shipped with FPC:
    http://andorra.cvs.sourceforge.net/v...view=markup#l1

    All you have to do is to set the "DO_NOT_INCLUDE_STD_FORMATS" and "DO_NOT_INCLUDE_STD_WINDOWMGR" compiler switches or simply set them in the "andorra_conf.inc".

    You can use the AdWin32Window Window-Framework-Provider-Unit for DirectX/OpenGL on Windows (as it is done in the demo) or AdGLFW and AdSDL for OpenGL only on Windows/Linux.

    Hope that helps you,
    Andreas

    I didn't know that. I was under general impression that you would need some more units, but I didn't know about those two compiler switches. Seems I going to give this another try.

    I was not completely honest, I think there indeed are some dependencies to "Math", "SyncObjs" and probably "Contnrs" (I'm not sure about that), but theese should also be included with the compiler... ;-)

    Edit: Here's the complete dependency chart: http://andorracommons.sourceforge.ne...Draws.gviz.svg - Units like "Forms" and "Graphics" are only included by the AdVCLFormats and AdComponentWindow Units which are deactivated with the compiler switches above...
