Hi Guys,

For those of you interested in creating 2D games with Physics and animations, there's a brand new DroidScript plugin currently in preview on the Beta forum.  If you are interested in getting early access to it and helping us test it, then head over to the beta forum.

(If you are not currently a beta forum member and want access, then send a email to:-  david [at] droidscript.org and ask to join)


I'm currently working with Mat (the creator of the Booty5) to see if we can integrate his Game level editor with DroidScript too :)

I was going to start completely rewriting my game, as the code is horribly inefficient (made when I was new to DroidScript), using GLView instead of images. As the "physics" of the game are really simple, would there be any speed advantages in using this plugin with HTML canvas compared to GLView?

Try it out by drawing 1000 times the same image and compare which object renders faster ;)

Hi Michael,

You will probably find that GLView is faster but it is very basic and only allows you to draw/rotate/skew/scale/move images and not much else.  If you want physics and particle systems and collision detection then you will have to do that all yourself (which is a good learning process but quite time consuming).

Booty5 has Physics, collision detection, particle systems, animation, tweening etc all built-in and documented, so it would be easier to work with. Also Booty5 games run inside an HTML5 canvas, so you could run your game/app on other platforms and in a browser too.

It should be possible to use a transparent background with Booty5 too, so you could put animations over the top of other layers in your app (for tutorials/AR etc)

Regards
David

Yes, you can create games offline as the Booty5 plugin and docs all work off-line in both the mobile IDE and WiFi IDE.

If point.js is canvas based, then you could create a DS plugin in the same way that the Booty5 plugin was created.  Just download the B5 plugin and examine the source code (its all pure JavaScript).
