ant512 has released a new app for the DS:
Another new demo/app thingy. This one is a library for creating hierarchical menus on the touch screen (D-pad control works too) in C++. It's easy to create menus with background bitmaps, add buttons and sub-menus, and have them navigate to other menus, back to the parent menu, or execute other functions (via function pointers).
(I was going for a "school exercise book" graphical style, which didn't quite turn out as well as I'd hoped - oh well! Does the job, though.)
No source code for this one yet as I'm still working on it.
Feedback would be much appreciated on this one. My three main questions are:
Is it worth building in transitions? Keep in mind the fact that people really just want to play a game/use an app, not muck about with options screens.
If I go for more complicated transitions (where buttons are treated differently to the background - they scroll off the side, for instance), what would be a good set of generic transitions?
Animated buttons - waste of time, or a good idea?
