Allegro.pas 5.2.alpha-2 released
06/27/2016 6:31 AM | Niunio | Comments (0)

There are a lot of work to be done yet, but I did several big improvements so I've just uploaded a new release.

In short: There are several bugfixing, including (but not limited to) the primitives add-on that didn't work in previous versions. There are new functionality too, as 3D transformations and custom memory management. Also I added new examples and updated some other to supply the lack of documentation.

You can download it from

Any comment and suggestion will be welcome.

Allegro.pas 5.2.alpha released!

A new Alpha release of Allegro.pas has been released today. This one goes forward version 5.2. It still doesn't implement the whole Allegro 5 API but it is more stable and has more documentation, examples and functions than previous one. I didn't test it but should work on Delphi.

Allegro.pas 4.4.5 released
11/04/2015 5:30 AM | Niunio | Comments (1)

After almost 3 years, a new version of the Allegro.pas game library is available from its download page.

This version has some API modifications, as well as a lot of improvements that makes it faster (and sometimes smaller) executables. Most important changes from version 4.4.4 below:

  • Some new functions and procedures that detects system stuff at runtime, and new units for Windows and UNIX specifics.

  • A new BOOLEAN type that allows better integration with library.

  • Now it uses ARRAYs and VAR/OUT on parameters instead of pointers, that allows to reduce executable sizes and faster execution, and a side effect is reduction of HINT and WARNING lines while compilation!

  • Several bug fixes in demo game, al_apply_matrix_f and al_pack_fseek functions and in examples.

  • A lot of changes on documentation.

Also note that in near future I'll move TRUNK to BRANCHES/4.4, and BRANCHES/5.0 to TRUNK. This doesn't mean that I'll forget version 4.4: I'll update it if I find bugs or somebody sends me interesting patches or additions, but it's time to take version 5.0 seriously.
