Hi everyone, sorry for this might be a re-post but the old one is on page 9 of DarkGDK forums.

For those that may not know about them, I released 3 plugins to use along with DarkGDK.NET:

Quote: "LightInput - Adds support for Microsoft's XBox 360 Controllers by using the XInput driver.

LightPackage - Adds a PAK Like functionality to DarkGDK.NET. It comes with the plugin and tools to pack/unpack your media files to a big Package. Note that this plugin uses a a package description I have developed, it is not compatible with other PAK formats.

LightText - Previous known as LightTextDX, this plugin was re-designed and supports the creation of various AdvancedText objects to write to the screen, each with its own font and color, anti-aliased text and faster renderer, along with other functionalities."


For those using them for the first time, it would be really nice to hear back from you. I hope everybody enjoys them!

Happy coding!

-Thiago Bessa

Very cool! I was just wondering how I'd get my PC xbox controller to work.

Does the Pak'er allow you to set your own encryption salt?

Hi RanQor,

It does have a password protection, so without it a person cannot open your package with LightPackage tools.

For now it doesn't have encription of the files, but I'm not using any documented methods for packaging the files together, and although it does use GZip compression, you will not be able to just try to open the file with Winzip or anything like it. The password itself is encrypted in the package.

If I get to make a version 2.0 of this plugin, then it will have full encryption support.
