Creating your own orx/Scroll project using 'init'

You can easily generate an orx/Scroll project using init from the github version of Orx, and then adding the Scroll library files.

This article assumes that you have downloaded the latest version of Orx from github and have built Orx.

Please note that soon, the init script will allow the creation of a Scroll project without the manual steps outlined here. This tutorial is considered temporary.

How to Create your own orx/Scroll project

  1. Init a standard Orx project using this guide.
  2. Git clone the Scroll layer from here:
  3. Copy the include folder into the root of your newly created Orx project.

A note on the include folder: your Orx project created using 'init' does not have an include folder. This is because Orx projects created with this tool uses the include folder via the $ORX environment variable. When you copy in the include folder from the Scroll layer, it will be newly created with only a Scroll subfolder contained inside.

  1. Load your new orx/Scroll project using your favourite IDE. You'll find your build in the build folder.
  2. Edit all three configurations (Debug, Profile & Release) and change the list of Includes Directories by adding ..\..\..\include\Scroll; to the list.

Adding Scroll classes and Objects

Now you can begin working with your orx/Scroll project. The following tutorials will help get you up and going if you haven't used Scroll yet:

Configuration files and Bootstrapping

As the base of this is a converted Orx project, you might need to do some work arranging your config files. To make things easier, you might want to consider bootstrapping the location of your first config file.
