ND2Dx update: faster, more flexible, new rendering techniques, 3D transformations and new dynamic shader system

After all these months without any update for ND2Dx, I decided to take some time and try to package all the modifications I have been doing on it when working on different projects over the past few months. It is not an easy task as lots of things have changed and not everything has been […]

ND2Dx: 3D transformations preview

Another preview before I release the new source code on GitHub: 3D transformation are coming back to ND2Dx ! No need to use any kind of new component or whatsoever. It’s directly integrated into Node2D and the new batching system I’m implementing at the moment. You’ll be able to use nodes with 2d and 3d […]

ND2Dx faster…

Still working on ND2Dx. Implemented a new direct gpu drawing system (like in Genome2D) and I get over 57.000 rotating sprites at ~50/52fps on my same old system. Using the display list, I now can get near the 30.000 sprites at ~60fps (compared to 21.000 before). Here is a screenshot before I set this up […]

Twitter for AS3

Looking for an ActionScript3 library that handles the Twitter API ? look no further, here is your savior : https://github.com/susisu/Twitter-for-AS3 There is, to my knowledge, no way of getting around the “pin” method of twitter unless you’re using StageWebView on mobile or HTMLLoader on desktop AIR apps.

Adaptable TreeView UI Component for Flash as3

Here is a preview of a TreeView component I’m working on for the sake of the game editor I’m developing. The main and big idea that I borrowed from Sibirjak (components and other useful things in flash as3) is the special approach that is taken for DataProviders. See the common way we look at DataProviders in […]

ND2Dx on GitHub

Hello, this simple post for announcing that ND2Dx is now available on GitHub: https://github.com/NoRabbit/ND2Dx. It is still in its very early stages but I’m already using it in professional productions.
