About AgkSharp for Windows
With AGKSharp you have the chance to write AppGameKit programs in the language C# and in VisualBasic. Now you can write your programs in an object-oriented language. I also provide a template that allows you to develop AppGameKit applications with windows-forms.
These templates can simply be copied into the directory “?user?\Documents\Visual Studio 2017\Templates\ProjectTemplates\” and then copied into the “Visual C#” and “Visual Basic” directory. The corresponding template projects should be found when creating new Projects.
AgkSharp was developed with Visual Studio 2017. It has also been successfully tested with Visual Studio 2015 & 2013. The minimum version of .net is 2.0. I also tested it on Win7, Win8.1 and Windows 10 machines.
This project is in the trial phase. For the next 12 months it will be check whether this project is accepted and used by the community. AgkSharp has been compiled with AGK release 2017.12.12.
If you find AgkSharp helpful and you don’t own AppGameKit yet, please buy AppGameKit. Let TheGameCreators know if you like AgkSharp. For now AgkSharp is only for Windows available. I will look for a solution to make it available for Linux and MacOS.
