Orx - 2d Game Engine - version 1.11 has been released

Hello guys

I would like to share an information of a less known Linux (and other OS) game engine i'm using and that is definitely worth checking if you have the time. To sum it up, Orx is a 2.5d data-driven game development engine. It is open source, ultra-fast, multi-platform and full-featured for C/C++ programmers.

The version 1.11 of the Orx Portable Game Engine has been released.

Some of the more notable features of the release are:
- Project build tool "Init” now supports the creation of orx/Scroll, Dear ImGui and orxArchive based projects
- Support changes for MinGW-w64, including new support for 64-bit, the addition of Visual Studio 2019 and removal of VS2013
- OSX/Retina and Windows high DPI display issues corrected
- Control over polled physical peripherals
- Text animations
- Object Lifetimes based on FX, sound, spawn, track and child, not just time
The full list of changes are available at:

You can download the 1.11 release here:
The up to date development version is located at:

Orx 1.11


I tried it and so far it's great, everything is on wheels.

I don't know if you're part of the dev team but I encountered a problem with one of the tutorial on the wiki entitled "Mouse over Effect", and I'm losing it on this.

I understand it, it should work but it doesn't.

I've tried to subscribe to the forum to expose my problem but I must wait for an administrator to validate my application, don't know why...

Please, answer if you can help.


Edit :

Ok I've been approved on the forum and asked there. I find it weird to have to justify why you want to subscribe. Nevermind...

No I'm not,
but I'm part of the 'helping to promote' team, as a user :P.

Awesome, you have a Chat here too:
And they will open a Discord server soon.

I think it's for avoiding spamming?
'not sure, you can ask there. It's a small but nice community.

Thanks for your answer.

The community seems really friendly, dedicated to their software (got an answer one hour later) and really kind to C++ butcher like me.

I think it's automated and, you're right, to avoid spamming.
