This is another more radical fork of Cocos2d-x-4.0, use OpenAL for all platforms, single texture multi GPU texture handler, C++14/17, etc.


Purpose Summary:

  • C++14/17
  • Focus on native game dev (quick starting, easy to use, fast)
  • Bugfixes ASAP
  • Usefull PRs from you are welcome (review/merge ASAP)

Highlight Features:

  • More clearly thirdparty libs Upstram & Version & License for easy to publish your commercial apps based on engine-x
  • Refactor AudioEngine, OpenAL for all platforms
    • openal-soft, pass -DBUILD_EXT_ALSOFT=ON to cmake to force enable it
    • OpenAL.framework, if no BUILD_EXT_ALSOFT option specified, cmake script will choose it on osx/ios, even through it was mark as deprecated, but still available.
  • Refactor UserDefault with mio
  • Modularize all optional extension, move from engine core to folder extensions
  • Implement all .wav formats supported by openal-soft, such as MS-ADPCM, ADPCM, ...
  • Use modern gl loader glad (instead of glew)
  • Add google angle renderer backend support
  • C++14 standard
  • IOS SDK 9.0 as minimal deployment
  • Use fast pugixml
  • Using curl for transferring data with URL syntax
  • Use SAX parser for all plist file
  • Spine-3.8 support
  • Add engine extension FairyGUI support
  • Add ASTC 4x4/6x6/8x8 support, if hardware decoder not present, use software decoder
  • Add ETC2 RGB/RGBA support, if hardware decoder not present, use software decoder
  • ImGui integrated, easy to write game embedded tools, very ease to use, please read ImGuiEXT


Quick Start

Common Requirement python

  • python-2.7.17+, python-3.7+


  1. Enter engine-x root directory
  2. Run python
  3. Run python, restart console after finish


  1. Install CMake 3.14+
  2. Install Visual Studio 2019 build(we strong recommend you use this version)
  3. Execute follow command at command line(Console, Window Terminal or Powershell)
cd engine-x\
cmake -S . -B build -G "Visual Studio 16 2019" -A Win32


  1. Install Android Studio 4.0+

  2. When first start Android Studio, It will guide you to install sdk and other tools, just install them

  3. Start Android and choose [Open an existing Android Studio Project] to open engine-x\tests\cpp-tests\

  4. Start Android Studio and Open [Tools][SDKManager], then switch to SDK Tools, check the Show Package Details, choose follow tools and click the button Apply to install them:

    • Android SDK Platform 29 r5
    • Android SDK Build-Tools 29.0.2
    • NDK r16b+
    • CMake 3.10+
  5. Waiting for Gradle sync finish.

  6. Remark: If you use non-sdk provided CMake edition, you need download ninja from, and copy ninja.exe to cmake's bin directory


  1. Ensure xcode11+ & cmake3.14+ installed, install cmake command line support: sudo "/Applications/" --install
  2. Execute follow command
    sudo xcode-select -switch /Applications/
  3. Generate xcode project
  # for any device
  cmake -S . -B build -GXcode -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=cmake/

  # for device combined armv7,arm64
  # cmake -S . -B build -GXcode -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=cmake/ "-DCMAKE_OSX_ARCHITECTURES=armv7;arm64"

  # for simulator x86_64
  # cmake -S . -B build -GXcode -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=cmake/ -DCMAKE_OSX_SYSROOT=iphonesimulator -DCMAKE_OSX_ARCHITECTURES=x86_64
  1. After cmake generate finish, you can open xcode project at build folder and run cpp-tests or other test targets.

  2. Notes
    a. The code sign required to run ios app on device, just change bundle identifier until the auto manage siging solved
    b. engine-x only provide armv7,arm64,x86_64 prebuilt libraries for ios


  • ThreadLocalStorage(TLS)
    • ios x86 simulator ios>=10 and engine-x no longer provide x86 libraries
    • ios x64 or devices(armv7,arm64) ios sdk>=9.0
    • the openal-soft maintained by kcat use TLS
