Here is an OpenGL gui I've created: GUIde. It's GPL licenced. Maybe you'll add it into your list.


I was interested in it, but it says page under construction. Do you have screenshots?

OPAL - Open Physics Abstraction Layer, currently wraps just ODE I think but could be adapted to use other libraries. Choice of BSD or LGPL license.

This may have already been suggested, but this list would probably be best implemented as a WIKI...


agree, and it should be in a table (sort / filter-able?) with title, license, OS / 2D/3D API support, url, ratings by peers on quality & support etc.

That'd be nice!

I didn't see Blitz++ (math library for C++) on the list.

edit: I see it's been added now :)

Here is some more 2-d stuff that I think should be added. Thanks for doing this.

General purpose library (2D) -> ZEngine http://zengine.sourceforge.net/index.php
2D Graphics (Sprite Engine) -> Kyra http://www.grinninglizard.com/kyra/
2D Graphics (Font) -> SFont http://www.linux-games.com/sfont/
2D Graphics (Font) -> BFont http://www.cs.unibo.it/~dbilli/bfont/bfont.html

I'll see if I can think of any others.

General purpose library (2D w/ 3D accel) -> Ika Engine http://ika.sourceforge.net/

LOKI, as Marius posted, should really be added IMHO

and you might be interested in my quest for a simple OpenGL framework.

Does LOKI have anything gamedev specific? Is there even any decent documentation for it online? I don't want to start adding things that are just 'helpful' because that opens the floodgates to all kinds of libraries.

Hmm online? No not that I've seen, the book Modern C++ Design is the best source for it. But you probably knew that and just wanted to prove your point >_<

and game specific, nope. But neither does any of the "general purpose" libs you have on the list :) LOKI is like BOOST, but a bit more focused on configurable design patterns. It has memory managers, factories, functor wrappers, etc.

Btw, did you check out the list of OGL wrappers (link) I've found so far?

Nifty list though, thanx for sharing!! =D

KjAPI, it just became free. There are some licensing stuff to work out, but it should be fixed soon.

www.kjapi.com


Its a GDK, with AI, tools, physics, etc. And its for C++

Hey Kylotan, just wondering why Ika didn't make the cut. I don't see it on the list and it seems pretty useful just not well advertised.

General purpose library (2D w/ 3D accel) -> Ika Engine http://ika.sourceforge.net/

Seriema, I wasn't just trying to prove a point... it's just that I don't want to add something to the list when I don't really know what it does. I know there's a fine line between game libs and non-game libs, but I've got Boost in there because it offers random number generation and quaternions, for starters. I'm not sure who's going to know they want LOKI unless they have the book, which sort of makes it non-free.

Boder, IKA probably isn't on the list because nobody's told me about it before now.

Graphics3D - I have only just started using this library, but so far I have been very happy with it. It is quite flexible and light-weight.

I don't know if these are good enough, but they are worth taking a look at.

not sure on license: PTK - http://www.phelios.com/ptk/

Graphics3D I already have (as G3D, which is the name of the library itself), Sphere and Verge are more game development tools than libraries or frameworks. PTK has just been added though. Thanks!
