Sprite and it's transformations done!
Now it's posible to load sprites to Ui as well as scale rotate and translate them.

Parent scissor test and animations on the way. =D

Layout work finished.
* [UI] Added posibility to set x, y, width and height in percent and pixels altogether. [Akari]

After a bit testing seting params in pixels altogather with % seems more efficient than padding or margins.
UI can be drawn with all aspects just great. widgets can dynamic change their size acording to aspects. Everything for a good UI.

Now it's finished with layout and start time for a widget's animations =)

Parents and Aligments.
All widgets now can be aligned left right center top middle or bottom. Position can be set in px and in %.

Now only padding feature left and i can go from formatting to visual features =)

Start working on UI. I have a lot of ideas about how create UI that can be skinnable and can hold both classical UI and something like this.

Work work. For now it's still just colorfull quads =D
Soon I add sprites support and animations =)

nmkin5 model from sl1982

First step to make FFVII 3d =)

For those who interested in what's going on with q-gears:
I finish some low level staff, console commands and variables, inputs, events.
I'm working on loading of resources now. Background loading, file organization and such staff.
I'm work on particle system that can handle ffvii type of effects. It's not that easy. All effects are hardcoded so to implement them each of them needs to be reversed. Results will be here soon.
I'm work on battle 3d extractor/converter.

Wait for the good news =)

Well I want to share some results from current year.
All spring and summer I was busy with real life. Only now I have time to work on engine and reversing.

I start engine again from scratch. But start not from game, but from a lot of debug drawing and additional features that was hard to implement in earlier version.

I reverce model initialization in FFVII and in FFIX, and start work on Xenogears (which is really differs from two other games). I understand how battle camera works in FFVII.

Exporter for field models of FFVII are done. FFIX exporter are on it's way. Sizes of models selected and standartized.

I already add Viewer module to engine so you can preview exported model with it's animations.

In addition our graphic programmer tell me good way to create 2.5d background drawing without tiling it. So when I export it it will be much better viewable. (Use second texture as Z buffer and draw each pixel depending on it).

I has a lot of other ideas to improve original data storage so even FFXIII can be exported to this engine when it's done =)

Happy new year to everybody =)

Now I back to fields =)

Yup, at this point Q-Gears need game designers. Not the actual game designers (who make up idea for the game), but the ones who make game itself (scripting levels, balancing units and so on).

Mainly we need one people, but it's not bad if there are two or more.
Requirements: understanding basic of programming languages. Ability to write documentation. Interest in game mechanic. Strong love to FFVII.

You will need to port inner FFVII content to Q_Gears.
- translate script to LUA, optimize it. Write documentation about game variables.
- export models and animations. Insert them ingame.
- export backgrounds.
- export texts.
- export and insert to game description file all inner things.
This is difficult but interesting work.
Maybe soon we will bed one more people for battle module. As soon as I finish the bases.
