Pixel Toaster

http://www.pixeltoaster.com

Open source c++ library for realtime software rendering.

It gives you a truecolor or floating point framebuffer at your choice, then converts the pixels to the display on the fly. Keyboard and mouse input, and a high resolution timer are also provided.

Currently supports only Windows (DirectX9), but ports to MacOS X and Unix (XWindows etc) are underway.

cheers

Great list, but I didn't see PTK on the list. PTK is a great Mac/Windows 2d library running on top of OpenGL (so it's fast). It's free for freeware but it does have a PTK Watermark in the corner. I'm using it for my next game ( coming in a few weeks ).

I have been wanting to create a web page dedicated to free game related libraries and tools for some time, I bought the space and its just sitting there empty. Unfortunately I cannot dedicate much time to creating and updating the site :( If anyone would be interested in a joint collaboration for this, let me know. My URL is www.dark-alley.com.

Thanks for the list Kylotan and everyone else who's contributed. I've looked through it and plan on exploring it more later. (I hope this is a sticky for a while.)

The new url is http://trenki.al.msshost.com

Accordingly his libraries can be found at:

You list Crazy Eddie's GUI system at an old address. That site directs you to the new site, which is found at http://www.cegui.org.uk/modules/news/. Great list.

Seconded! I just got around yesterday to taking a look at this and it is a wonderful thing you have put together! Thanks for all your times and efforts. What I could suggest as well is a TOC to give direct linking to each of the categories to provide a better overview of what's there.

Here's something similar to what you have done. I have not gone through and verified every item, but they have a lot as well.
