Orx is a 2D oriented, data-driven, portable game engine focused primarily on ease of use.
This is the first release candidate for orx v1.0. If you find any bugs,
please report them at https://forum.orx-project.org/discussion/387]my
other post[/url] for more information about what I want to do.
This is due to the strong coupling created by various 'CreateFromConfig' functions as well as most API functions relying on a config id so it can call 'CreateFromConfig'.
So, if I want to represent my data using json or xml, I will have to manually create everything from scratch.
A solution to that might be:
1). Create a resource manager that creates objects, graphics, animations, etc, for you based on a key.
In standard config it should remain the same way.
In json could be something like
In XML could be something like
2). Create format handlers to interpret different formats for orx.
3). Change *CreateFromConfig functions so object creation / retrieval is delegated to the resource manager.
I don't know if this is a good idea, nor if it is compatible with current design or even if it is doable, but this is what makes sense to me.
