Added a new chapter about the keyboard state and the key states for simple key input handling. Updated the Text and Font chapter.
It seems the author of p_daniel’s (or danpla’s) SDL 2.0 units has deleted his github account, hence I updated the discussion page about which unit to choose. Also the official website of the Bare game project seems to be offline. Thanks for the hints Stéphane.
A new impressive, commercial SDL2 based Pascal project called Savage Vessels has been added to the project list. The project list itself got restructured for better readability and loading times.
I did a major update to the whole SDL2 tutorial, added some new, restructed and split up many old chapters to have a better learning experience. Instead of ten big learning chunks, there are now 18 smaller chunks which are dedicated to clearly outlined topics. I’m looking forward to do a lot of fine tuning and extending the SDL2 tutorial. If you find errors, just drop me a line.
Every article now shows a date of the last update. This makes it easier to estimate how up to date the article’s information are.
I decided to change the basic font size from 18 to 24 points since the text appears too small on common high resolution displays. I adapted point sizes for other elements accordingly. Also, I made license information available for many images (CC-BY 4.0).
The drop-down menu is gone since it got too long and it has been hard to reach all entries on some devices.
Thanks to MattCash Chapter 6 got some necessary updates.
