    Cool S2DL ver 2.1 Release

    S2DL ver 2.1 Release

    After about 3 years the next S2DL release is available. This version can be considered Beta as I have just packaged the latest info available in my reporitories into a new file - not all functions have been tested properly. (I also believe some code was lost, and I have had to recreate it and may have missed some methods).

    S2DL is an object orientated set of wrappers for JEDI-SDL with extensive OpenGL addins to make it faster.

    Included in this download are the following S2DL source files:
    S2DLDraws - the base class for instantiating an application window
    S2DLImage - Load, Display and Manage images
    S2DLInput - Manage Keyboard and mouse - also base logic for Joystick but I dont have a joystick to test with
    S2DLSound - Load, Play and manage sound files
    S2DLFont - Load, Display and Manage bitmap style fonts
    S2DLLogger - Log management code for recording what happens in the game while it occurs
    S2DLState - State Management - a State is a logical screen, move between states when you change game screen eg from Menu to Game to High Scores
    S2DLGuis - Basic Guis - Labels and Containers supported (Next version will include an Edit box)
    S2DLGuiState - Extended Game State to specifically manage Guis - think Delphi forms
    S2DLTiledMapState - Extended Game State to display a tiled map
    S2DLParticleEngine - Basic Particle Engine (Release state of this unit is uncertain)
    S2DLMovieState - Does not Work - please ignore

    2011\06\20

    18MB download (See notes below)

    Not yet uploaded (due to problems with ftp to my host):
    Demos - incomplete games

    Complete Games
    Fantasy Land http://www.cairnsgames.co.za/files/FantasyLand.zip

    Weapons of War http://www.cairnsgames.co.za/files/WeaponsofWar.zip
    Star Trekking http://www.cairnsgames.co.za/files/StarTrekking.zip



    Dependancies: JEDI-SDL (Not included) works fine with JEDI-SDL ver 1-0

    Contents:
    SDL DLLs in Binaries folder
    Source code for S2DL classes (See above)
    Project Template that can be expanded for new games
    Demos
    - Hello World
    - Balls (Puzzle game demo)
    - TileMap (Simple tiled map demo)
    - S2DLVolumeDemo (idea stolen from elsewhere and converted to S2DL - shows FPS based on number of sprites being displayed - origin unknown)
    - GameState - Demo of game state functions
    - Viking Rampage (Nice Isometric Tiled demo - was going to be a PGD contest entry - design docs included - incomplete)
    More complete Game Samples
    - Flies (Swat the flies to score points - Complete Game)
    - Fantasy Land (3rd Place in a local Game Dev Contest - Complete Game)
    - Weapons of War (Balls demo extended to a full game - Complete Game)
    - Startrekking (Balls demo extended to a full game - Complete Game)


    Note: The large size of the download is due to the number of complete game demos including their needed images
    Note 2: Will later distribute the base classes as a source code download, and demos separatly (Basic demos, full games)


    How to Compile in FreePascal
    - Compiling in FreePascal makes very small binaries
    - Instructions are included on installing S2DL to work in lazarus (This is old and may no longer be relevant)
    fpc -FuC:\S2DL\Source <ProjectName>.lpr
    Note: .dpr files can be renamed as .lpr for freepascal/lazarus - they may need to be modified to include an ifdef for delphi syntax.

    Very awesome William!

    I always liked your JEDI-SDL-based library. Glad to see if back on the development block.

    Any plans to fix up your old website that showcases all your past projects?

    Most of those games dissapeared along with the site

    Might find time inbetween to try and put my website together with the games I can find.

    OK the source files and SDL binaries download is working and tested - my host keeps closing connection on the larger files.

    Demo for Flies also uploaded successfully.
