Gibbo's Release!


I'm proud to announce that Gibbo 1.0 Beta (Gibbo Glast) (1.2 since 11 Jan 2014) is finally out!

Here is a small teaser of a game made in gibbo glast:

There are a lot of new features in this version and it uses the latest monogame build (with some addons made by us).

Short Description:
Focused in a generic development, this game engine has the necessary tools to develop any kind of 2D game - the Editor has plenty of features that besides allowing to create games in a short period of time, allows to create them with the least effort.

Gibbo Glast 2D can be approached in several ways. If you're already a programmer, you can read the available online library and write your own scripts, making full use of the Engine. In case that you're not a programmer yet, you can just download the resources you need - even though you'll be more limited.

Every little defail from the User Interface was thought through, making it easy to use.

With Gibbo Glast and your imagination, you'll be able to create amazing games which can be played in other platforms (soon on linux)

Quick Update (released just now):

- Lime Script Editor (just a preview of the final script editor we are developing, this version is very basic but has everything you need to make scripts without external applications).
- Reported bugs fixed and added tooltips for the scene's options.

You can update by going to Help > Check for Updates menu option or by reopening Gibbo twice (it will check and ask you automatically)


Note: A new tutorial has been released on the website as well.

Legit double post

- Added a short description in the main post

Quick note:
- Yesterday, we started working in the particle system. As such, we'll probably release an update very soon.


(click to show/hide)

100.000.000 (yeah that number is right) particles, fps = 60, no frame-drop (tested on a simple dual core laptop)

Just after testing 100 million particles, I tested with one more digit, and no frame-drop was noticed. You can see that in the picture below

(click to show/hide)

Yeah, now the number of particles is over 1 billion  :haha:

Legit triple post  :^_^':

We're currently working on an Error System so you can figure out why the project/game doesn't compile. Furthermore, you'll be able to interact with the errors immediately, using the built-in script editor Lime which we've been working on lately as well (we only released a preview version of the editor in the update after the Beta's release)

In case that you want to track all the updates, you can follow us at facebook.

[Update - Aug 5] v1.0.0.15

We have just released a new update containing the recent systems we've recently been working on.
Most important updates:

- Particle System (beta)
- Error Logging (in Lime Editor and compile window)
- Some bug fixes and upgrades in the tileset editor

Tip: To update your editor quickly, open, close it (won't work if the editor is already open) and then re-open, it will ask if you want to update.

:S I'm becoming a good artist now, but when I HAVE to do art, I completely suck. I'm only good when I enjoy what I'm doing :( I've always wanted to join some team and be the artist, but I know that I will never be dedicated enough, lol. The best I've done is a few sprite sheets for a mugen team...

*I added the same information to the main post*
*I've also organized the main post with all the news and updates so far*

Hey everyone, we got fresh news! We've just released a new update. You're now allowed to drag'n drop between items at the Scene Hierarchy panel. We've also improved the framework, added a small preview to the pictures when the system mouse is over one (Project's Explorer panel) and reorganized the Particle Emitter Properties at the Inspector Panel.
Lastly, we've fixed the reported bugs (like the xml documentation - wasn't beeing generated correctly)

Don't waste any time and update Gibbo by going to Help menu or reopening it twice (it should check it automatically)

*Updated the main post with the same information*

Aug 10 - Note and Suggestion:

Two new tutorials have been published in the Begginers Section.

In spite of that, Gibbo offers several ways to enhance a static menu screen. Improving upon what we have learnt by adding animations or transition effects is effortless.
We invite you to learn more at: http://www.monogame.net/documentation

Update - Aug 18:

Gibbo Glast 2D Beta 1.1 has finally been released!

Besides implementing the so awaited Physics System, several of the available tools have been improved and bugs were fixed.
Furthermore, it's highly important to note that Collision Models have been utterly replaced by Physic bodies.

In the picture below, it's shown how to add Physical Bodies to Game Objects.

We'll do our best to write down all the changes really soon.

To update to the newest version, use the Help Menu or reopen Gibbo twice.

As always, should you eventually find any bug or have any kind of issue, please report in the forum.

Regards!

Very nice. Interesting that you made it open source, right after ARC was made open source as well. Is there a connection between the two?  :w00t:

Well, I wasn't aware that ARC was made open source, I supposed it's a coincidente  :)

We made it open source at the end of last year (31 december 2013)
