cocos2d-x is a multi-platform framework for building 2d games, interactive books, demos and other graphical applications. It is based on cocos2d-iphone, but instead of using Objective-C, it uses C++. It works on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Store Apps, OS X, Windows and Linux.

cocos2d-x is:

  • Fast
  • Free
  • Easy to use
  • Community Supported

Git user attention

  1. Clone the repo from GitHub.

     $ git clone https://github.com/cocos2d/cocos2d-x.git
    
  2. After cloning the repo, please execute download-deps.py to download and install dependencies.

     $ cd cocos2d-x
     cocos2d-x $ python download-deps.py
    
  3. After running download-deps.py.

     cocos2d-x $ git submodule update --init
    

How to start a new game

  1. Download the code from cocos2d download site
  2. Run setup.py
  3. Run the cocos script

Example:

$ cd cocos2d-x
$ ./setup.py
$ source FILE_TO_SAVE_SYSTEM_VARIABLE
$ cocos new MyGame -p com.your_company.mygame -l cpp -d NEW_PROJECTS_DIR
$ cd NEW_PROJECTS_DIR/MyGame

Build and run a new project for Android

$ cocos run -p android -j 4

Build and run a new project for iOS

$ cocos run -p ios

Build and run a new project for OSX

$ cocos run -p mac

Build and run a new project for Linux

if you never run cocos2d-x on Linux, you need to install all dependencies by the script in cocos2d/build/install-deps-linux.sh

$ cd cocos2d-x/build
$ ./install-deps-linux.sh

Then

$ cd NEW_PROJECTS_DIR/MyGame
$ cocos run -p linux

Run

$ bin/MyGame

Build and run new project for win32

$ cocos run -p win32

Build and run new project for Windows 8.1/10.0 and Windows Phone 8.1/10.0

$ cocos new MyGame -p com.your_company.mygame -l cpp -d projects
  • Visual Studio 2013 Update 4 or later is required for Windows 8.1 Universal Apps

  • Visual Studio 2015 RC and Windows 10.0 (build 10074 or higher) is required for Windows 10.0 UWP Apps

Starting with Cocos2d-x v3.3, you can create Windows 8.1 Universal Apps (Windows Store and Windows Phone 8.1). Starting with Cocos2d-x v3.6 you can create Windows 10.0 UWP Apps (Windows Store and Windows Phone 10.0). Starting with Cocos2d-x v3.6 there will no longer be support for Windows Phone 8.0.

See more info on How to install and Create games on Windows RT (Windows and Windows Phone 8.1) at http://msopentech.github.io/cocos2d-x/

Build Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.7+, Xcode 5.1+
  • or Ubuntu 12.10+, CMake 2.6+
  • or Windows 7+, VS 2013+
  • Python 2.7.5
  • NDK r10c+ is required to build Android games
  • Windows Phone/Store 8.0 VS 2013+
  • Windows Phone/Store 8.1 VS 2013 Update 3+

Runtime Requirements

  • iOS 5.0+ for iPhone / iPad games
  • Android 2.3+ for Android games
  • Windows 8.1 for Windows Phone/Store 8.1 games
  • Windows 10.0 for Windows Phone/Store 10.0 games
  • OS X v10.6+ for Mac games

Running Tests

Select the test you want from Xcode Scheme chooser.

  • For OS X / iOS
$ cd cocos2d-x/build
$ open cocos2d_tests.xcodeproj
  • For Linux
$ cd cocos2d-x/build
$ ./install-deps-linux.sh
$ cmake ..
$ make

Run Samples

$ bin/cpp-empty-test/cpp-empty-test
or
$ bin/lua-empty-test/lua-empty-test
  You may meet building errors when building libGLFW.so. It is because libGL.so directs to an error target,
  you should make it to direct to a correct one. `install-deps-linux.sh` only has to be run once.
  • For Windows

Open the cocos2d-x/build/cocos2d-win32.sln

  • For Windows 8.1 Universal Apps (Phone and Store)

Open the cocos2d-x/build/cocos2d-win8.1-universal.sln

  • For Android
$ cd cocos2d-x/build
$ python ./android-build.py cpp-empty-test -p 10
$ adb install ../tests/cpp-empty-test/proj.android/bin/CppEmptyTest-debug.apk

Then click item on Android device to run tests. Available value of -p is the API level, cocos2d-x supports from level 10.
