It appears that GakScript isn't Mono compliant. As a result, I've switched over to using Boo exclusively. I'm planning on having everything in Gsl run through script files to increase flexability and allow for easy expansion of the games.
FMOD Ex has been implemented for sound and music support. It is probably the best audio library as it is cross platform and loads a huge list of audio formats. Gsl still has a couple bugs with disposing sound channels, but I'm working on that one.
Before all sprites having more then one frame of animation had to be held on multiple textures. Tilesets are now implemented into Gsl so you can have one image containing a number of different frames of animation. This will really come in handy when implementing the mapping system.
This is still at early stages, but I'm trying to have Tile Studio output a Boo script file so that tiled maps are easy to make and load into the engine. Right now it works with static maps, but I'd like to have sequences and all that good stuff. A big thanks goes to Scet and his journal for motivating me to use Tile Studio.
Tao.PhysFs has been implemented for PhysFS file loading support. This means loading any needed file from a dynamic file structure with zip loading support. So far images, audio files, scripts and map files are all loaded through PhysFS and I plan to keep it as dynamic as possible.
I'm considering redesigning the Sprite system so that there is a TileSet object for any Texture needing it. This will greatly take work load off of the Sprite and Tile objects and probably help me down the road with the mapping system. I also need a font rendering system and some kind of GUI interface. Anyone got any recommendations?
