Some exciting new features in this latest release of 8bit-Unity! A compact yet powerful GUI system is now available, that can generate typical widgets (Panel, Listbox, Button, Scrollbar…).
Just call CheckCallbacks() once per frame, and a pointer to the called widget will be returned. No need to worry about the widget state, 8bit-Unity takes care of everything (moving sliders, changing item focus…)
To demonstrate the GUI system, a cool Tech Demo called “8bit-OS” is included in the distribution. It consists of 4 mini-apps (file browser, image slideshow, music player, and online chat!). More will be added in future!
You can find the complete list of changes in the release notes.
