Games :: Setting Up Open Source 3D Android Game Engine / Want License?

Mar 29, 2010

I am setting up an open source 3D game engine for android. What license should we use? Thought we'd go with something like BSD or maybe GPL/LGPL, but getting confused about it. Want a license that helps developers - doesn't hinder them - and an engine that's as open as possible.

Android :: Non Free Open Source License For Android Application?

Nov 7, 2010

I'm working on an Android App, and I want to provide a free demo and a paid full-version from the Android Market. However, I also want to provide the source code. I don't mind if people want to play with the code and install modified versions on their own devices. However, I don't want to see any free full-version binaries on the web, and a license like the GPL would allow anyone to offer some, probably even making profit that way.

If some people would rather build and deploy the app themselves instead of paying 1-5$, they can go ahead. But a convenient one-click-download button and other people making money from my efforts is not what I want. Is there any pre-existing license I can use for something like that? Furthermore, if I want to start an app as free and open source, but later decide that I want to make money from selling it, is there a FOSS license that allows me to move to the license I'm asking about above later?

Android :: Android Game Engine For 2d And 3d Games

Nov 19, 2010

There is a library called cocos-2d for iphone. There are number of games developed with that nowadays. Also, there is cocos-2d library available for Android too. I just wanted to know if that is also as stable as iphone one or its still not stable to be used in development.

Also, is there any other game engine available for Android? The ones that I know is AndEngine. Which one is better for development? If not both then will it better to develop using core Android API rather than using any game engine.

Android :: Any Good Open Source Android Games To Accelerate Learning Process?

Dec 21, 2009

This question here lists some good links to general Android applications (that I'm already looking over) but I'm interested at the moment in specifically games (board-type, intelligent games rather than action - in other words, I don't need real-time). What are the best sources for applications like that? I want to look over the source code to get myself up to speed quickly.

(Please don't just Google for results, I've already done that and the pickings are a little scarce. I'm interested in anyone who's actually taken time to find and evaluate good sites for this - so ideally, you'd already be an Android developer interested in developing games).

Android :: License Source Code Of Application

Oct 16, 2010

I have an Android app and some company is interested in using part of it and rebranding it for its customers. One of the options would involve licensing the code to them for use in this specific case. Would you recommend doing that as a good option? What is the cost of licensing code in comparison to the cost of the original development. Should the license be for any use of the code, for using the codebase/year?

Android :: Gamine Game Engine 0.2

Apr 29, 2010

I've just released version 0.2 of Gamine, an open source 3D game engine for Android devices: This release adds lots of major features, including particle effects, OBJ file import, picking, text rendering, transparent rendering, and more. Although it's still a very early version, I believe it is now complete enough to be used for real games. So give it a try, and I'd really appreciate any feedback about it.

Android :: Game Engine Deployment Strategy For Phone?

Apr 15, 2010

In college, my senior project was to create a simple 2D game engine complete with a scripting language which compiled to bytecode, which was interpreted. For fun, I'd like to port the engine to android. I'm new to android development, so I'm not sure which way to go as far as deploying the engine on the phone. The easiest way I suppose would be to require the engine/interpreter to be bundled with every game that uses it. This solves any versioning issues. There are two problems with this. One: this makes each game app larger and two: I originally released the engine under the LGPL license (unfortunately), but this deployment strategy makes it difficult to conform to the rules of that license, particularly with respect to allowing users to replace the lib easily with another version. So, my other option is to somehow have the engine stand alone as an Activity or service that somehow responds to intents raised by game apps, and somehow give the engine app permissions to read the scripts and other assets to "run" the game. The user could then be able to replace the engine app with a different version (possibly one they made themselves). Is this even possible? What would you recommend? How could I handle it in a secure way?

Open Source Android Toolkit?

Feb 13, 2012

I am currently working on an open source collection of Android APIs that will be collected into a toolkit. Essentially, this toolkit is intended to ease coding pains for developers by simplifying things such as network operations, file operations, etc..

I already have a bunch of things planned, such as PHP POST and GET operations, POP3, IMAP, and SMTP operations, File management operations (creating files, downloading files, parsing files, etc...). What other kinds of operations do you all think could be simplified or even just want an alternative to?

Android :: How To Fund An Open Source Project?

Feb 11, 2010

As a thesis for my graduation I'm going to start an open source project: My idea is to port a complete set of mathematical libraries to Android, to perform numeric and symbolic operations, in the form of a programmable calculator like matlab or sage. I want to release this project under GPL, because I believe that ideas need to be free to work, but I also know that i will spend a lot of money to buy multiple device to do debug and fine tuning. I thought about selling the prepacked app on the market for 0.99, while giving the source to compile on the site for free. It would be like a small tax on laziness. What do you think? How do you think I could fund this project?

Android :: Setting Up Multiplayer Game Over Internet

May 28, 2009

I'm wanting to add 2 player mode to a game, but I want this mode to be able to run over the internet.

My idea is to setup a game state server that would maintain information on the moves made or current game state.

The game clients would send information to this server and request updates via xml.

I would just like to know if this is the best way / only for to clients to send game information to each other over the internet? Any advice on this would be good.

Android :: Phonebook Sharing Google ADC's Top 20 Is Now Open Source

Jan 12, 2010

Today is quite a big day to me. After all the work, studies and sleepless nights that I've been through, I've decided to share all that with the community opening the source of Phonebook Sharing. We have been chosen by the Android powered users as well as by Google as one of the ADC's Top 20 Social Networking applications. This application explores and makes use of many many features available by the platform (Android 1.5 / 1.6) as well as custom components/features that the platform does not provide yet, such as ListView pagination. Not just the Android client but also the J2EE server, I've made available quite a few interessting things such as Video Streaming and EJB3 stuff. I've also built a fake server that responds to all the request events made by the android client therefore you will be able to run client/ server and see how the communication goes. I'm still wrapping up the project building some documentation on our Wiki section.

Android :: Need To Use Some Open Source Code With GPL3 / Avoiding GPL

Jun 22, 2010

I need to use some open source code with GPL3. As usual I don't want to open source code for full application.

Now what I understand is if I make two separate process one with my main application code and other as a service or something with Open source library then in that case I have to open source code only for the other one.

Now the question is what is the best way to do so in Android. Suppose My Main App is A Open Source code is B. So A will give some data to B. B will process this and sends data back to A. B may not need to have any UI.

1. Is it possible to install 2 seperate applications / processes from one APK? 2. What is the best way ?Should B be a service? How will be the communication between A and B ? 3. Is it possible to run/call B from A?
