Orx - Portable Game Engine
New tutorials: Working with Joysticks and Gamepads
18 February 2018

Joystick and Gamepad support is an attractive addition to many games. Offering more options to a desktop game rather than just keyboard or mouse could put your game in front of more players.

Two new tutorials that help easily integrate Joystick or Gamepad for either Analog or Digital support are:

  1. Analog Joystick / Gamepad Control Sticks
  2. 8 Way Joystick / Gamepad Control

Saving Game information to a File
09 January 2018

Games often need to save back to disk. You might need to save player information, map positions, scores etc. Because Orx is data driven, it is naturally easy to save this information to a file on disk for retrieval later.

This is covered in the new Save Game Tutorial.

New tutorial: Passing items from one Object to another
06 December 2017

Say you had a game where your player character needed to collect objects and carry them around. Also it needed to drop them off or give them to another character.

Objects that are children of a parent object can easily fulfil this role. Thankfully the parenthood of an item can be assigned at will to another object.

You can find the new tutorial here.

New tutorial: Sound Buses
05 December 2017

Sounds and Music in your game can be assigned to a bus. This allows you to alter aspects of the audio, like the volume, without affecting audio assigned on another bus. Buses are like object groups in many respects.

Checkout the latest tutorial.
