AppGameKit - Tier2 Tutorial Series Starts

Today we have released the first set of tutorials for AppGameKit Tier2 C++ development. This new series of tutorials aims to help users who want to move from Tier1 AppGameKit scripting to Tier2 C++ development. 

In this first set of tutorials you'll learn how to install and setup Tier 2 on Windows, Mac and Android. Over the course of these tutorials, we’ll introduce you to everything you need to program your own games using the AppGameKit C++ libraries.




To get the most from these tutorials, you’ll need to have some prior experience of programming in C++, but we assume no prior knowledge of the AppGameKit libraries or of games programming in general.


In each tutorial, we’ll walk you through the process of creating a small game, taking you step by step through everything you need to do, and explaining any new concepts that arise. By following these tutorials, you’ll gradually build up a good knowledge of many common games programming techniques, and learn about the features of the library, so that you will become equipped with enough information to branch out and start making your own games. Along the way, we’ll suggest plenty of ways you can customise these games to make them truly your own. Although each tutorial will be stand-alone, the concepts from earlier tutorials will be used in later ones, so we suggest following them in order.



Owners of AppGameKit can download the tutorials from their products page. Steam users will find the files downloaded into a folder called Tutorials in the Tier2 area.

We'll be releasing new tutorials in the series every two weeks.

  • Feedback and control of Steam's chaperone (boundary grid)
  • Added hardware information feedbacks
  • Fixed a problem with the SetPlayerRotation command
  • Allow the use of a custom skybox instead of the SteamVR room when application is too busy to render new images

This new version uses the very latest OpenVR dll so be sure to download all files (Open VR, AppGameKit VR Plugin, Tier 1 and Tier2 demos). 

AppGameKit Tier2 Starter's Guide


With the recent update to AppGameKit allowing support for Visual Studio 2017, we're now rolling out an update to the Tier2 Starter's Guide that covers using VS2017. 

Steam Review?
If you purchased AppGameKit directly from Steam we'd really like to hear what you think of AppGameKit by posting a review on the Steam store. It helps new users with their buying decisions and it helps us learn what our customers think.

About This Software

AppGameKit is a powerful game development engine, ideal for Beginners, Hobbyists & Indie developers. Now anyone can quickly code and build apps for multiple platforms using AppGameKit's BASIC scripting system. With just a few commands you can have demos/games up and running on mobile devices. Bob Duffy, Developer Relations Intel Corporation, said “AppGameKit is a great cross platform development tool. It allows developers to quickly optimize and compile apps.”

Games can be developed and deployed to your chosen mobile devices for rapid prototyping. AppGameKit does all the heavy lifting for you - making it easy to code, compile and then export apps to each platform. All you need to focus on is your game/app idea. It's that simple!

NEW!

The Visual Editor is the perfect DLC to accompany AppGameKit

AppGameKit also caters for more seasoned developers, allowing you to use the AppGameKit C++ libraries and benefit from all the features of AppGameKit's core game engine. Two great examples of this are the games 1982 and Echoes+ developed by Binary Zoo and both are FREE to download on STEAM;
