DISCONTINUED and replaced by ABMXPlay in ABMaterial 2.0 for B4J. Interested parties in the source code for the Xojo version can contact me via email.
It has been a while since my last post, but I’ve been busy. This is the first alpha release of ABXPlay! For now it is closed source as I want to keep control over changes and bugs, but it will probably be open source when the final version arrives.
ABXPlay is an advanced WebGL control for Xojo with a fall back to a HTML5 Canvas if the browser does not support WebGL.
Drawing of primitives (line, rectangles, circles, arcs, polygons, curves, …)
Sprites and Textures
Container objects that group primitives and other containers
Scaling, Alpha, Rotation, Position Tweening for all Containers
Drag/Drop of Containers
Multi user events
Spritesheets and Spines
Filters and Shaders
Text (fonts, Google fonts and Bitmap fonts)
Basic DOM object support
Basic Box2D support
Basic TMX support
Included is the help, all the examples shown in the Xojo forum posts with source code and of course the ABXPlay engine/control.
You can download alpha 0.7 here .
The help is included in the download, but can also be consulted here
For those who followed the adventures of our South Park friends, You’ll notice a final chapter. Although Chef solved the Kenny Ghost problem, it seems Eric still is suffering a bit. When he want’s to play some football (yes, I mean football, not soccer), one Kenny keeps giving him trouble!
This illustrates some basic Box2D support. (Physics engine, Collisions, Joints).
1. If you create a new project, make sure the control is locked on all sides of the window
2. Set the properties on the control in the inspector (like the view properties, if it should be interactive, the Scaletype, etc…)
3. Assets should be copied in the subfolder \Assets\ next to your project.
4. Make sure also the \Engines\ folder is next to your project!
5. To test another example, change the ‘DefaultWebPage’ to another one of the example WebPages.
But most of all, have fun with it!
