# RLNET # RLNET is a lightweight API to help quickly create tile-based games for .NET. RLNET provides a console output, swappable colors, true color sprites, keyboard and mouse inputs. RLNET uses [OpenTK](http://www.opentk.com) # Getting Started # Download the latest version and add a reference to RLNET.dll. Be sure to also reference OpenTK.dll in your project, or get the lastest version on NuGet. # Using RLNET # [RLNET Tutorials](https://clarktravism.wordpress.com) First you must create your root console. This object has access to the window, keyboard, and mouse for your game. ``` RLRootConsole rootConsole = new RLRootConsole("terminal8x8.png", 50, 50, 8, 8, 1f, "RLNET Sample"); ``` Then you hook up to its update and render events. ``` rootConsole.Update += rootConsole_Update; rootConsole.Render += rootConsole_Render; ... void rootConsole_Update(object sender, UpdateEventArgs e) { //Update Logic Here } void rootConsole_Render(object sender, UpdateEventArgs e) { rootConsole.Clear(); rootConsole.Print(1, 1, "Hello World!", RLColor.White); rootConsole.Draw(); } ``` Finally you let it run. ``` rootConsole.Run(); ``` Take a look at the RLNET.Sample project to see a working sample. # License # RLNET is released under the [MIT License](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License) Copyright (c) 2014 Travis M.
