I still have no luck installing AndEngine despite all tutorials. The reason is that I have no clue of where the library is anymore, or which to pick.
Original tutorials (and website) says to copy the tree from Google code-pages. Later on the project was moved to Github. Then there's GLES1 and GLES2. Then there's extensions, all residing in a code trunk on their own, really messy and confusing to install.
So, why not updating some pointers? I mean, http://www.andengine.org/
still points at http://code.google.com/p/andengine/
was updated in October 2011, gles2/use-andengine-as-a-android-library-project-not-as-a-jar-t6142.html
says to use Library Project and not a Jar, no java-doc, no nothing for me as an utter novice as where to start.tutorials/updated-getting-started-with-andengine-t4858.html
contains video tutorials by RealMayo which are of little use to me as I am deaf, and they also contain "if you update from GLES1 to GLES2 [...]". I'm not even sure what GLES is, and why there would be two different libraries?
Please note: This is not
a rant, just asking for a piece of advice since I'm still completely confused how to get everything setup. I've added all kinds of code trunks, both from mercurial and github, got the library part compile okay but I can't run any examples since the extensions fail hard. No idea why, but probably because I'm so confused.
Can anyone please scratch all outdated installation tutorials and create a new, fresh, one?
I'd love helping with anything on this library, but alas - for the moment, I know nothing and therefore I cannot provide contributions myself.
