Blackspirit Graphics is a 2D Java graphics library designed for games, providing a simple but powerful interface.

Blackspirit Graphics is a 2D Java graphics library designed for games, providing a simple but powerful interface.
This is an open source project under the Apache License, Version 2.0 and hosted on sourceforge.net.

The main goals Blackspirit Graphics tries to achieve are:

Operating System Independency
Hardware Acceleration
Suited for real-time applications
Integrateable into GUI applications (Swing/AWT)
Simple Interface


Drawing properties:

Drawing Modes (Alpha Blend, Alpha Add, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Overriding)
Transformations (Translation, Rotation, Scaling)
Color component masking (Red, Green, Blue, Alpha)

Primitive drawing operations:

Point (only of pixel size 1)
Single or multiple lines with optional color per end point (only with pixel line width 1)
Single or multiple triangle outlines with optional color per point (only with pixel line width 1)
Single or multiple filled triangles with optional texturing and color per point


Supported images include: PNG (recommended), JPG, GIF, BMP (TGA with ImageIO Plugin)
Image and sub image drawing
Draw on images (to image cache). Exactly the same as drawing on a canvas
Buffered images for procedural Image creation (like video rendering)
Update image cache from buffer
Update image buffer from cache
Copy current content of a graphics context into an images cache


Based on AWT fonts
Text drawing
Get text bounds without drawing


Shapes defining area and outline
Optional texturing and color per point
Factory for common Shapes (Circle, Ellipse, Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, etc.)
Utility for manual creation of Shapes based on outlines and cut-outs (concave polygons supported)
Utility for creation of common polygon outlines to be used for shape creation (Circle, Ellipse, Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, etc.)


Sub images as frames (from multiple images)
Generic so frame class can be extended


Color gradient utility to populate buffered images and retrieve color for specific points
AWT utility helps converting buffered images to AWT images (saving AWT images is easy using ImageIO)

What's New in This Release:

В· Added transformatin stack (push/pop) for managing tranformation state
В· Max supported image width/height/pixels can be retrieved from ImageFactory
В· Only images supported by Java ImageIO can be loaded (TGA only with ImageIO plugin)

Known bugs:
В· Points not drawn on some systems (when glPointSize is set to 1)

Fixed bugs:
В· Animation repetition bug in AnimationImpl fixed
В· Not using PBuffer with Intel graphics cards to properly support image drawing.

System Requirements:

В· Java
В· Vecmath
В· JOGL 1.1.1
Program Release Status: New Release
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
