Thank you for downloading photon, Photon is an API which is designed primarily to ease creation of hardware accelerated 2D games with OpenGL and other open source & cross platform libraries. Photon aims to simplify portable game development, enabling developers to focus on the gameplay. Photon uses OpenGL for hardware accelerated rotation, alpha blending, resizing, and drawing. Photon is built entirely on free software, using libraries including including GLFW, PhysFS, OpenAL, Corona, Freetype and boost.. Using Photon does not require knowledge of any of these libraries as their needed functionality is wrapped entirely within Photon’s rich class library so that anyone with a decent grasp of C++ can use Photon. photon is a cross platform API, designed primarily for game development. photon is designed to run on as many operating systems as possible, and OS support is only limited by libraries which Photon depends on, at the moment photon should run on Windows, Linux, OSX, and other Operating Systems which have OpenGL support. ------- If this is a source distribution you'll need to build photon before you can use it in your own applications, for details on how to build and install photon check out INSTALL.html If this is a binary distribution you can start using photon right away by linking the photon library (found in the lib/ subfolder) and it's dependencies with your applications. If you need any help or have any questions check out IFAQ.html or visit photon's homepage at http://photon.sourceforge.net/. $Id: README.txt,v 1.3 2005/11/15 06:01:12 cozman Exp $
