Getting started with AndEngine ...

Postby Nicolas Gramlich » Tue Jun 15, 2010 1:31 pm

Hello Community,

as you have opened this topic, you are probably interested in getting started with AndEngine - good choice ;) !

You might wonder where to download a ready-to-go sample project :?:
:arrow: What you are looking for are probably the official AndEngine-Examples. The place to go for the most recent Sourcecode for that project is here:

While I strongly encourage you to check out that project (so you can easily pull changes from the repository of the Examples and see if there is something new or what has changed), you don't need to do so. (Mercurial Eclipse Plugin)

At lease you should browse the Sourcecode and get a quick overview on the examples - you can do that here:


In the case you do not want to check out the Examples or even build AndEngine yourself, but you want to start a new project with AndEngine from scratch, I created the following Screencast to show how this is done within 5 minutes:


For your convenience, the andengine.jar is located here:


Let me know if this was helpful :)

Best Regards,
Nicolas

Thanks Nicolas! I'm new to android, so even the most simple tutorials are of great help

Hi! Your engine seems amazing thanks! One thing which may enhance though, you should say or write somewhere to add the required permissions in order for the app to work. It took me an hour to figure it out :(

Great job anyway. Bye.

Hello, this probably will be a really dumb question but,
I have follow the video, but cannot find myself access to the jar to import as a lib. Is there another place to find it? Or Was i supposed to sign up for something?

Not a dumb question, but I should add the link to the jar to the above post :)

The jar is located here: http://code.google.com/p/andengineexamp ... engine.jar
Right-Click and choose sth like:"Save as..."

Depends on what you use ;) If you use the Box2D Physics Extension to AndEngine, yes. Otherwise (currently!) only collision of not-rotated, unscaled rectangles.

I'm sorry, I don't even have a Vimeo Account. If your employer is blocking it, can't you watch it from home :?:

This framework is very exciting, congrats Nicolas on making something so useful and needed.

I was wondering: is there an overview of the architecture somewhere? I am going through the example apps, and would find it much easier to follow if I had a quick sheet to refer to, and a basic explanation of the intended usage for the various classes.

I'm taking notes as I progress, if there isn't anything in place, if/when I get to the point where I am comfortable with Andengine, maybe I can upload them somewhere as a wiki?
