So I've finally finished the long delayed update to LuaPlayer Euphoria V7.
There are huge improvements across the board, and a host of new features.
Here is the change log :
Info :[+] Ported project from C++ to C.
[+] Implemented AAlib sound engine (Mp3, At3 & Ogg Playback On Media Engine + Wav support) and wrote a new sound core. (note usage has changed, please see the samples included in the download for new usage)
[+] Added Swizzle & UnSwizzle functions (note : Images are Swizzled by default)
[+] Added move Image to Vram function.
[+] Added optional Alpha parameter to screen:blit(). (ie screen:blit(x, y, image, alpha) - Makes for easy image fading in/out
[+] Added VFPU math library.
[+] Added Sony Message Dialog System.
[+] Added Sony OSK System.[*] Reworked IntraFont support.
[+] Added option to free/delete Images from memory.[*] Huge code cleanup.[*] Vairous fixes that I cannot remember :P.
[+] Source code now available.
So obviously there has been huge improvements to LuaPlayer Euphoria and it is now shaping up to be a much more stable feature packed LuaPlayer. The VFPU math library is now part of the Lua Core. So use the math functions as normal but they get run on the VFPU ;)
The source code is now available to developers also @ Google Code.
Looking for developers :
I am also looking for any interested developers to help me with this project, as it's becoming a bit much for me, and progress is too slow with just one developer. If your interested send me a pm or post in the release thread @ Official Forum..
As usual if you get stuck, find a bug, want some tutorials etc, head on over to the Official Forum.
Future plans :
- Add VLF library
- Fix the damn wifi (which i cannot seem to do)
- Add adhoc support
- Add Tilemap support with collision, and multiplatform map editor
- Add more 3d stuff
- Add Chipmunk physics library
For a full list of all the functions (new and old) added by LuaPlayer Euphoria, please see the "Functions List.txt" file included in the download. (An online documentation system with samples is being worked on.
To see samples of all of the functions (new and old), please look in the samples directory, included in the download.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy this release!
