SVG image rendering and more keyboard assignments
« on: March 13, 2008, 11:30:42 am »
Request one:
Add support for opening SVG images. I know it is a big thing to ask for, but there are ready DLLs. Integrating them into SFML would be swell!

Request two:
Add support for every Key on the keyboard. For a game developer a LEFT shift is entirely different from RIGHT shift.

Request three:
Add a function to change a relative transformation point for SPRITES. Something like Sprite::SetTransformationPoint. It would replace SetRotationCenter, and serve as a base for positioning, zooming and rotating.

Note: I really appreciate your work, i tried to work with QT, but it is too complex for me. I love elegance and simplicity.

Requests two and three are already completed ;)
Check the roadmap if you want to see what is / will be in the next version :
http://www.sfml-dev.org/roadmap.php

Integrating SVG is a more complex task, I still have many things to improve and fix before thinking about this kind of features. But in the future I'll definitively try to add something to work with SVG.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your feedback ;)

No problem. I will post my ideas every time i think it's worth it.  :wink:

And i'm truly sorry i did not check the roadmap and the fixes before complaining. I guess i will just have to wait for the 1.3 version.

You can use the SVN version, it's very easy to get and compile. A lot of people do it to get the latest improvements. And it helps me to fix a lot of bugs before releasing a new version to the public ;)

Using cairo you can quite easily load svg images and use them in sfml.

Cairo is quite a big library, not the kind of things that would integrate well there.

I am trying to use the ImageMagick library, but it's not that easy for a beginner like me.
