    Your AndEngine looks just like the thing I was hoping to find. But, do you have a list of commands and an explanation of what they do? As in:- http://developer.android.com/reference/android/view/animation/Animation.html

    Or do I have to plod my was through the sourcecode.

    Many thanks. Your hard work is appreciated.

    Hi Nicholas,

    I enjoy the apps you have created! I am having a Froyo-market issue that I hope you can help with. Since upgrading my Droid X to Froyo 2.2, I cannot find a live wallpaper that you created, Bird Live Wallpaper. I purchased it in July, but it is no longer in my list of Android Market downloads. Is there any way I can access it again? It is a perfect live wallpaper. Thank you.

    Hi Nicolas,
    I’ve been working on a game for about a year now and whilst the game structure is coming along nicely I began to realise it needs some extra candy. Looking at the demos AndEngine looks really great! I’m looking forward to figuring out the library so I can incorporate some cool things like particle systems into my game!

  7. Ron says:

    Please add a page here what you actually support in your engine. I mean are there explosions supported? Somthing like:

    – joins
    – gravity
    – weight
    – fraction

    See you up there.

  25. Ahmet says:

    I want to use your engine but andengine.jar is not in the googlecode as told in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-genimutmQ this video. I found and old version of it in another example game but tutorial examples not working on it. How can I get latest version of andengine.

    hey Nicholas,
    you did a great job buddy.
    i am a new on android and also on gaming development.
    i want to know weather andengine supports multiplayer gaming??
    means can i add any player who is online or connected with andengine or registered with application??
    weather andengine provides chatting facility for game player’s while playing a game?
    weather game remain in state (as it is ) if one of the player exits or due to bad network loses its connection??
    any help will be appreciative.



  27. mahaveer says:

    i am waiting for your reply…

  28. Bely says:

    Hi Nicolas,

    Why can’t I download your code?
    The download link is empty: http://code.google.com/p/andengine/downloads/list


  29. nomi says:

    hi im a new user and i want to know if u guide me how i can be a good gaming programmer and i need some help on developing game on android too .Is andengine support 3d games too? if its then how? can u help me plz

  30. Matt says:

    Good move from hg to git. I think a lot of beginning developers could use some help on getting the library off git and into their project, a brief guide for git bash (or whatever) and then a page with instructions on how to add the library would probably make the transition to github easier for the newer folks. Great job – thanks.

  31. Anan says:

    hi nicholas….does andengine has any licence restriction??…should i make my source code open if i use andengine to create a game??

  32. Siyanat says:

    Wow awesome stuff, Can you share the story behind the andengine development. How did you start ? your inspiration behind this projects,?. Will be great to know 🙂

  33. haazzz says:

    Will andengine support continue? Its been some months now since the last blog update, to say the least, and people are starting to worry about the future of the engine. Will you continue developing andengine or will Zinga put a stop to it?

  34. Timo says:

    Super Arbeit Nicolas.
    Ich bastel nun seit gut einer Woche mit der Engine rum und habe gute Aussichten ein funktionstüchtiges Spiel zu entwickeln 🙂

    Hi Nicolas,

    We’re loving Andengine and aiming to get our first Android game out using it in the next couple of weeks. It’s great that you have made your code available as open source, but the paper trail is a little difficult to follow, and that is making it hard for serious users (or maybe users with serious lawyers) to use it with a clear conscience. For instance, you don’t have an explicit link to the licence terms (LGPL) from andengine.org as far as I can see. There is a link from code.google.com, but this is now deprecated in favour of github, which has no licence information. And there is no reference to LGPL in the code, only your and Zynga’s copyright messages. Your various postings make it clear that your are committed to keeping Andengine open source, and I think you would see greater commercial take-up of your software if you made the link clearer.


  36. Avinash says:
