Leadwerks Game to Universal Windows 10 Application

Recommended Posts

Will it be possible (In the future) to build for Windows 10 App? So this game can be uploaded to Windows Store?

 

Best Regards

Marco

AFAIK you cannot publish to Xbox One without a developer license.

 

UWP and XB1 do not support OpenGL or Vulkan.

For UWP (win phone, windows os, xbox) you need only standard ms dev license.

Looks like you're right:

However, they use the DirectX graphics API which is not worth supporting for a niche platform. We're moving to Vulkan in the future, and Microsoft doesn't appear to be supporting that either. Maybe in time they will see the light.

 

But before Vulkan, as you stated, we are expecting these :

 

Leadwerks GUI

Built-in offline help with videos

New game templates

Achieve 80% approval rating on Steam

 

Is there any timetable for them?

Leadwerks GUI, possibly by Christmas, together with Mac support. Possibly.

 

The game templates will take a long time.

 

Given what I have seen over the years, I think those improvements will lead to the 80% approval rating I am seeking. I don't actually think the Vulkan renderer will take that long, maybe two months of solid work. Vulkan, together with some other things, would be Leadwerks Game Engine 5.

The new Doom uses Vulcan & Open GL and was released on Xbox One

I think they must have made a D3D port for that.
