Project structure layout

  • "Platforms": OS / API targets
  • "Platforms/Shared": Code shared accross platforms
  • "Platforms/<Platform>": C# projects specifically setup for different host enviroments
  • "Platforms/<Platform>/NetCore": .NET Core runtime targets
  • "Platforms/<Platform>/NetFramework": .NET/Mono Framework runtime targets
  • "Platforms/<Platform>/CS2X": CS2X runtime targets

Goals

This project will focus on an extremely portable, fast and powerful yet simple to understand agnostic set of frameworks for use in C# / .NET or CS2X runtimes.

Simply put, the goal is to have a robust set of core frameworks that can be used as the building blocks for C# UI / XAML like systems, Game Engines and more... running on platforms ranging from Desktop, Mobile, TV, IoT, Web to other embedded or legacy devices.

Platform target overview

This list will be adjusted and more specific as things progress.

  • Win10, 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2000, 98, 95, 3.1, WinCE
  • macOSX, macOS9, 8, 7, 6, etc...
  • Linux, BSD
  • Android, iOS, Tizen, BB10, WP7, WP8, WP10
  • WASM, asm.js, PNACL, JSIL
  • N64, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS2, PS3, PS4, Dreamcast, etc...
  • Others legacy...

Video / Graphics

Agnostic custom shader support will be provided via CS2X: https://github.com/reignstudios/CS2X
This means all shaders can be writen in C# for portability.
Writing shaders will not be required as many shading presets will be provided and fixed rendering pipelines are supported.

  • D3D (Fixed-Pipeline) 5, 6, 7, etc
  • D3D 8 - 12
  • OpenGL 1-4
  • GLES 1-3
  • Vulkan
  • Metal
  • QuickDraw / QuickDraw3D
  • PSGL
  • Software
  • Gameduino 1-2
  • N64
  • Other legacy...

Building

  • Prerequisites
    • Visual Studios 2019 (VS for Mac / MonoDevelop or VSCode have not yet been tested)
    • .NET Core, .NET Framework or CS2X. Depends on what you're targeting.
  • Debugging CS2X Analyzer errors: Open projects after running "CS2X.Ayalizer.Vsix"
