This library is mostly a C++ portable layer over SDL and some other multimedia libraries (to come). The aim is to have a common interface to the different libraries out there somebody might want to use to make portable games. People should be able to use it simply and have at least a "default consistent behaviour". This default behaviour must balance efficiency, usability and nice end-user experience.

The main features are :
- A simple interface to graphics libraries ( using an abstract model of a graphic engine for games )
- A simple interface to input libraries
- A simple interface to audio libraries ( using an abstract model of
an audio engine for games )
- A simple interface to video libraries
- A simple interface to operating system related functions.
(timer, thread, etc.).
- A common set of useful "management" components.

The main component is right now SDLut, a C++ wrapper over SDL 1.2

Test Framework
     posted by asmodehn, Sun Jun 20 08:14:35 2010 - 4 replies

We are currently implementing complete test suite around Core and SDLut modules of AML. And we already start to see improvements because :
- it helps a lot to define and solidify the API
- we can spot new errors ( introduced in code) very easily
- we can automate checks on all supported platforms
But it is indeed a lot of work...

And more games are being developed right now using AML ;)
Stay tuned !

Recent SDLut improvements
     posted by asmodehn, Fri Jun 15 08:28:33 2007 - 0 replies

Now with the SDL Threads support, SDLut wraps almost every feature of SDL 1.2 ;)

SDL_mixer and SDL_Net optional dependencies have also been added !

So we are heading towards a complete wrapper ;)

However many bugs and improvement of interface can still be done.

Please report any trouble or difficulties using SDLut on any platform.

We would also like to hear from you stories of success of course, dont hesitate to contact us.

Thanks a lot and Enjoy !
