Unigine::Engine Class

Members


virtual ~Engine ()

Virtual destructor.

static Engine * init (int version, int argc, char ** argv, const char * project, const char * password)

Initializes a new engine instance.

Arguments

  • int version - Engine version number (UNIGINE_VERSION)
  • int argc - Number of command line arguments.
  • char ** argv - Array of values of command line arguments.
  • const char * project - Project name. If this parameter is set, it forces the engine to store rewritable data (such as log file, cache files, config files) in user profile rather than in a directory with binaries. Notice that only the project name is required to pass in for this parameter, not the full path to the project. If there is no need to change location of such files, pass the NULL value.
  • const char * password - Password for the filesystem archives. Notice that the specified password must be the same as for the project archive (if it exists). Pass the NULL value if you do not need to set a password.

Return value

Pointer to the new engine instance.

static Engine * init (int version, App * app, int argc, char ** argv, const char * project, const char * password)

Initializes a new engine instance to be used with an external graphics application.

Arguments

  • int version - Version number (UNIGINE_VERSION).
  • App * app - Pointer to the graphics App class. Pass the NULL value to ignore this parameter.
  • int argc - Number of command line arguments.
  • char ** argv - Array of values of command line arguments.
  • const char * project - Project name. If this parameter is set, it forces the engine to store rewritable data (such as log file, cache files, config files) in user profile rather than in a directory with binaries. Notice that only the project name is required to pass in for this parameter, not the full path to the project. If there is no need to change location of such files, pass the NULL value.
  • const char * password - Password for the filesystem archives. Notice that the specified password must be the same as for the project archive (if it exists). Pass the NULL value if you do not need to set a password.

Return value

Pointer to the new engine instance.

static Engine * init (int version, App * app, const char * app_path, const char * home_path, int argc, char ** argv, const char * project, const char * password)

Initializes a new engine instance to be used with an external graphics application, which is stored at the specified path.

Arguments

  • int version - Version number (UNIGINE_VERSION).
  • App * app - Pointer to the graphics App class. Pass the NULL value to ignore this parameter.
  • const char * app_path - Path to a directory where binary executable file is stored. Pass the NULL value to ignore this parameter.
  • const char * home_path - Path to the user's home directory.
  • int argc - Number of command line arguments.
  • char ** argv - Array of values of command line arguments.
  • const char * project - Project name. If this parameter is set, it forces the engine to store rewritable data (such as log file, cache files, config files) in user profile rather than in a directory with binaries. Notice that only the project name is required to pass in for this parameter, not the full path to the project. If there is no need to change location of such files, pass the NULL value.
  • const char * password - Password for the filesystem archives. Notice that the specified password must be the same as for the project archive (if it exists). Pass the NULL value if you do not need to set a password.Notice that the specified password must be the same as for the project archive (if it exists).
