Software News   Software News : G2D Lib for Hollywood released
   posted by Allanon on 27-Apr-2017 7:27:57 (889 reads)
I've released G2D v1.8 Library for Hollywood.
G2D is an include file for Hollywood MAL, it is a 2d-oriented library that adds a lot of commands, objects and methods to handle 2d graphic areas but the best feature it has (at least in my opinion) it's a full featured skinning system that also allow multi-layered skinning.
This library has been heavily used with HGui to build gadgets and to make skinning possible.

The library is provided with all needed dependancies (all written in plain Hollywood) and some examples.

The library is FREE.



Here is a video showing some included examples:
YouTube link

LINKS
Documentation Wiki
Download page
Hollywood forums thread (with a detailed list of all available objects & methods)
Patreon page for those people interested to support my work

I'm also working on another library (GLFX) for Hollywood that uses GLGalore plugin to gain the power of OpenGL, here is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMPc9Jiwh-c showing a demo I'm using to test things.
GLFX is not yet ready for a public release.

Great stuff! This is really an excellent enhancer for Hollywood's graphics capabilities. By the way, the link to the extremely impressive GLFX video is broken, here is the correct one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMPc9Jiwh-c ... shows the true power of GL Galore!

Thank you @Andreas!
I'm not able to fix the wrong link, can a moderator fix it for me?

@elwood
I've already done a library dedicated to the demo making in Hollywood, I need to make it faster using GL Galore, I hope to release it soon.
Here is a YouTube video showing the "Thank You" demo made for IndieGO! campaign running on a Raspberry Pi3 (it's not OpenGL).

@all
I forgot to mention that there is also a dedicated support forum for all my works, if someone needs support here is the link.

Is it usable under AmigaOS? I can see all your projects have screenshots taken of Windows or Linux probably.

Hi r-tea,
yes, all my libraries can be used on any system, they does not use platform-specific features or dependancies except in very rare cases (not in this one :) ).

I show windows screenshots because it's my main dev-system, my SAM has gone some years ago...

The only thing you need to change are include's path for the provided code snippets, for example in the "Area-skinColor.hws" you need to fix the INCLUDES path :


/* ****************************************************************************
* G2D : Area:skinColor. *
****************************************************************************/
@INCLUDE "../G2D.hws"

;-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Local area1 = G2D.Area:new( 50, 50, 300, 250)
...


On Amiga-like systems you need to change the include path replacing "../" with a single "/", that's all.

The fixed line should be like the following:

@INCLUDE "/G2D.hws"


If you need help or have troubles please let me know

@Allanon: You can actually use ".." on Amiga systems as well with Hollywood. It is automatically converted to Amiga-style paths.

Waiting for Hollywood CD shipping. Then I'll try to make use of your library. Looks encouraging.

Allanon, why not uploading it to Aminet?

That's because it'd cost to much time to maintain updated all the stuff involved.
