Basically, I realized today that I can''t (and don''t have time to) code a graphics engine of most any kind, not even a 2D engine. Can anyone tell me where, if possible, I might find a freely downloadable 2D graphics engine (preferably implemented in DirectGraphics 8, but that doesn''t matter much)? Thanks. -Normie

Well, it wasn''t what I had in mind--I had more of a DirectX "front-end" of sorts in mind--but this is actually better; now I have an excuse to program in my Gentoo Linux system! Huzzah!

I am starting up a group of programmers and artists. To encourage membership, I have created a nice 2D engine over the last year or so that I am giving away free with tutorials.

I have developed 2 games with the engine, and am working on my 3rd and 4th at the same time with this new group. We currently have me (programmer), two artists, and an additional programmer and artist looking to join.
The engine is written in DX, and uses D3D for the best acceleration.
If you are interested in finding out more, EMail me at VChelaru@hotmail.com or IM me on AOL Instant Messenger at ArmySarj. Hope to hear from you soon.

P.S. The engine both has a lot of functionality, but it is designed to help new game programmers get on their own feet fast. Very easy to learn.
