GameTools gameStarter

From Wikiid
Jump to: navigation, search

This function is a handy-dandy completely automatic way of getting all of the annoying game startup stuff done:

 const char *gameStarter ( int argc, char **argv,
                           const char *gameExec,
                           const char *gameDataDir,
                           const char *title,
                           float r, float g, float b ) ;

Pass it your command-line arguments, the name of the game executable, the data directory from which to run it, the title of the game and a 'theme' colour for the menues and such.

Everything else comes automatically from data/ultimate.xml.

The returned result is the name of the XML file containing game level information.
