9:20 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Phelios has recently updated PTK to version 1.30. A game engine that allows programmers to create 2D multi-platform titles, the latest version adds 3D support, enabling it to either add 3D effects to 2D titles or to act as a framework for 3D games.
Some of the new capabilites are as follows:
More information on PTK, including download and purchase information, can be found at its official site.
Phelios - PTK
- 3D - .ase reader (currently supports 1 non animated Mesh - 1 Texture), Milkshape ASCII reader (in beta), animations can be achieved by keyframing (several 3D objects sharing the same texture). Web commands to send web queries / download files (example: online highscores like Swap).
- PTK's built-in sound engine named, "KSound" runs in both Mac and PC platforms and reads the following formats: WAV, OGG, XM, MOD, S3M & IT. Due to several requests and the lack of sound engines existing for the Mac platform, Phelios decided to offer KSound as a separate module for Mac programmers who use an SDK other than PTK.
- Color-Keying in addition to alpha channels (simplify the port of PC DirectDraw apps to Mac OS X)
- Better Video Memory handling (Rectangular texture support if available)
