Posting this for archival purposes. Its a game I made a few years back, was really my first foray into C# and OpenGL. I used Tao which to my knowledge isn’t updated or used anymore. With that being said the game can be a bit finicky on different machines.
Just released my second live wallpaper, Guts and Goo
The hardest thing besides a bit of OpenGL I had to learn was the Android preferences. I dont know why but I have such a hard time getting them working right. So right now the only option is to pick different images to mess with. I plan on adding more later. I also plan on releasing a “lite” version which only includes one background to choose.
Well I have finished my mess around project with OpenGL. I decided to make a screensaver BIG SURPRISE ! Its fully functioning, with the media embedded (1 image) but it requires the 2 tao DLL’s in order to run. Also I went ahead and included the source. Its no big secret how to create a screensaver in C# but I really didn’t see many relating to OpenGL. I have my sprite class implemented but not the emitter class, so the program.cs is a bit sloppy because it handles the particles in there. Only thing its missing is multimonitor support, mainly because I forgot to add that until just now. If any one wants me to I can go ahead and add that to the source.
Overall its very simple in nature and I am going to move up now to something a bit more complex, either a screensaver which uses 3d models, or a simple game like breakout our tetris. Decisions Decisions.
