New tutorials: Working with Joysticks and Gamepads
18 February 2018

Joystick and Gamepad support is an attractive addition to many games. Offering more options to a desktop game rather than just keyboard or mouse could put your game in front of more players.

Two new tutorials that help easily integrate Joystick or Gamepad for either Analog or Digital support are:

  1. Analog Joystick / Gamepad Control Sticks
  2. 8 Way Joystick / Gamepad Control

Saving Game information to a File
09 January 2018

Games often need to save back to disk. You might need to save player information, map positions, scores etc. Because Orx is data driven, it is naturally easy to save this information to a file on disk for retrieval later.

This is covered in the new Save Game Tutorial.
