Conventions used in this book

  • auto is used for creating local variables.
  • using namespace cocos2d; is used to shorten types.
  • each chapter has a compilable source code sample to demonstrate concepts.
  • each chapter should subclass Ref
  • each chapter should do as much work in the constructor. no need for ::init()
  • model the code design after chapter 2's example code. Follow these same conventions.

Prerequisites

  • make sure to drop in the pre-built libraries into libs/. For iOS you should have:
libs/libcocos2d iOS.a

For Android you should have everything if you have the Cocos app installed. If you do not, you can drop the pre-built libraries into libs/ and edit your projects config to reflect this.

For Windows 10 UWP and Windows 8.1 Universal App projects (WinRT Platforms) it is easier to work with the cocos2d-x source. Do the following:

$ cd programmers-guide-samples/cpp
$ git clone https://github.com/cocos2d/cocos2d-x.git cocos2d
$ cd cocos2d
$ git checkout v3.10
$ git submodule update --init
$ download-deps.py

This will setup the cocos2d-x code needed by the Windows 10 and 8.1 projects.

How to compile the samples

iOS:

$ git clone https://github.com/chukong/programmers-guide-samples.git
$ cd programmers-guide-samples/cpp
$ open proj.ios_mac/Programmers\ Guide.xcodeproj/

Android:

$ git clone https://github.com/chukong/programmers-guide-samples.git
$ cd programmers-guide-samples/cpp
$ cd proj.android
$ cocos run -p android

Windows 10 UWP (WinRT Platform):

$ git clone https://github.com/chukong/programmers-guide-samples.git
$ cd programmers-guide-samples/cpp
$ cd proj.win10

1. Open test.sln with VS2015 update 1
2. Select the Debug/x86 configuration
3. Right click on the test project and select Set as StartUp Project from the menu
4. Select Start Debugging from the Debug menu

Windows 8.1 Universal App (WinRT Platform):

$ git clone https://github.com/chukong/programmers-guide-samples.git
$ cd programmers-guide-samples/cpp
$ cd proj.win8.1-universal

1. Open test.sln with VS2015 Update 1 or Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 or 5
2. Select the Debug/x86 configuration
3. Right click on the test project and select Set as StartUp Project from the menu
4. Select Start Debugging from the Debug menu
