TSDL was written for the turn-based strategy game "Turious", but is a stand alone library. It provides a number of useful widgets and event handling functions. Its widgets include container, label, button, text, numbox, checkbox, and console. All of the widgets can be given individual background images and custom text. Containers and widgets can be shown and hidden individually, and will retain their visibility state. The library uses OpenGL for rendering, allowing it to be used in 3D games as well as 2D.
The J2DGAMEFRAMEWORK provides the necessary classes to implement a simple 2D game in a window enviroment using Java Swing libraries. This framework also provides a Sprite Collision Manager and a simple GUI template. By using this framework, the developers only concern is how to implement classes, and not the 2D World, the collisions, etc. It uses the Observer Design Pattern. It has double-buffered rendering, simple use of collisions, and user-transparent multi-threading for collision classes. You can move sprites like a vector with speed and angle, and simply save and load your game.
The Gluon project is an open framework for creating and distributing games, supporting the flow of the idea all the way from the author to the player of the finished game. The current goal for the first stable release is to create games using 2D graphics. The reasoning behind this is that the niche for this type of visual is very large and so far untapped by specialized tools. In the world of 3D games there are solutions such as Unity3D, which provide a distribution system, but in the 2D game development world there are no tools to provide a complete ecosystem for creation, distribution, and feedback gathering. The three main audiences of Gluon are game creators, game players, and application programmers. Each of these are a user of one of the tools.
crunch/crnlib is a lossy texture compression tool and library for developers that distributes and uses content in the DXT1/5/N or 3DC/BC5 compressed mipmapped texture formats. crnlib can compress mipmapped 2D textures and cubemaps to .8-1.25 bits/texel, and normal maps to 1.75-2 bits/texel. crnlib's quality and performance is competitive to transform-based solutions, or other offline/real-time DXTn compressors such as squish or ATI_Compress. crnlib implements a new form of "clustered" DXTn compression, with a compressed texture data format that was carefully designed to be very quickly transcodable directly to raw DXTn texture bits with no intermediate recompression step or individual pixel-level operations. The typical single threaded transcode to DXTn rate is equivalent to 100-250 megatexels/sec. Fast random access to individual mipmap levels is supported.
gzochi is a framework for developing massively multiplayer online games. A server container provides services to deployed games, which are written in Guile Scheme, that abstract and simplify some of the most challenging and error-prone aspects of online game development: Concurrency, data persistence, and network communications. A very thin client library can be embedded to provide connectivity for client applications written in any language.
