cocos2d-x

Win32 Others

cocos2d-x is a multi-platform framework for building 2d games, interactive books, demos and other graphical applications. It is based on cocos2d-iphone, but instead of using Objective-C, it uses C++. It works on iOS, Android, OS X, Windows, Linux and Web platforms.

Cocos2d-x Framework Architecture:

cocos2d-x is:

  • Fast
  • Free
  • Easy to use
  • Community supported

Git user attention

  1. Clone the repo from GitHub.

      $ git clone https://github.com/cocos2d/cocos2d-x.git
    
  2. After cloning the repo, please execute download-deps.py to download and install dependencies.

      $ cd cocos2d-x
      cocos2d-x $ python download-deps.py
    
  3. After running download-deps.py.

      cocos2d-x $ git submodule update --init
    

Download stable versions

How to start a new game

  1. Download the code from cocos2d download site or clone this repo (instructions above)
  2. Run setup.py
  3. Run the cocos script

Example:

$ cd cocos2d-x
$ ./setup.py
$ source FILE_TO_SAVE_SYSTEM_VARIABLE
$ cocos new MyGame -p com.your_company.mygame -l cpp -d NEW_PROJECTS_DIR
$ cd NEW_PROJECTS_DIR/MyGame

You can also create a JS project or Lua project with -l js or -l lua.

Build and run a new project for Android

Cocos2d-x supports Android Studio. Simple open the proj.android directory from within the Android Studio environment. More information can be found in our documentation.

Build and run a new project for iOS

$ cocos run -p ios

Build and run a new project for OSX

$ cocos run -p mac

Build and run a new project for Linux

If you never run cocos2d-x on Linux, you need to install all dependencies by the script in cocos2d/build/install-deps-linux.sh

$ cd cocos2d-x/build
$ ./install-deps-linux.sh

Then

$ cd NEW_PROJECTS_DIR/MyGame
$ cocos run -p linux

Run

$ bin/MyGame

Build and run new project for win32

$ cocos run -p win32

Build and run new project for web

Only JS project can be published to web platforms, so you will need to create a JS project first:

$ cocos new -l js WebGame

Then you can run your game in a web browser:

$ cocos run -p web

Or you can publish your game to publish/html5/ folder:

$ cocos run -p web -m release [--advanced]

Using CMake

Cocos2d-x supports CMake, a cross-platform build system. Example usage:

$ cd cocos2d-x
$ mkdir cmake-build && cd cmake-build
$ cmake ..

Build Requirements

  • Mac OS X 10.7+, Xcode 8+
  • or Ubuntu 14.04+, CMake 3.1+
  • or Windows 7+, VS 2015
  • Python 2.7.5+(NOT Python 3)
  • NDK r16+ is required to build Android games
  • Android Studio 3.0.0+ to build Android games(tested with 3.0.0)
  • JRE or JDK 1.6+ is required for web publishing

Runtime Requirements

  • iOS 8.0+ for iPhone / iPad games
  • Android 3.0.0+ for Android
  • OS X v10.9+ for Mac games
  • Windows 7+ for Win games
  • Modern browsers and IE 9+ for web games

Running Tests

Select the test you want from Xcode Scheme chooser.

  • Cocos Console
// Enter cpp test folder
cd tests/cpp-tests
// Or enter js test folder
cd tests/js-tests
// Or enter lua test folder
cd tests/lua-tests

// Compile or run test case
cocos compile -p ios|mac|android|win32|win8_1|metro|web -m debug|release
cocos run -p ios|mac|android|win32|win8_1|metro|web -m debug|release
  • For OS X / iOS
$ cd cocos2d-x/build
$ open cocos2d_tests.xcodeproj
  • For Linux
$ cd cocos2d-x/build
$ ./install-deps-linux.sh
$ mkdir linux-build
$ cd linux-build
$ cmake ../..

Run Samples

$ bin/Debug/cpp-empty-test/cpp-empty-test
or
$ bin/Debug/lua-empty-test/lua-empty-test

You may meet building errors when building libGLFW.so. It is because libGL.so directs to an error target, you should make it to direct to a correct one. install-deps-linux.sh only has to be run once.

  • For Windows

Open the cocos2d-x/build/cocos2d-win32.sln

  • For Android
$ cd cocos2d-x/build
$ python ./android-build.py cpp-empty-test -p 14
$ adb install ../tests/cpp-empty-test/proj.android/bin/CppEmptyTest-debug.apk

Then click item on Android device to run tests. Available value of -p is the API level, cocos2d-x supports from level 14.

Or you can import the project located at tests/cpp-empty-test/proj.android using Android Studio 3.0.0+.
