 ====About==== ====About====
 +Proton SDK (aka p+) is a component based C++ framework that is optimized for GL/GLES based mobile cross-platform game development.
 +
 +It's designed for advanced C++ programmers,​ if you're new to C++ or programming,​ this probably isn't the SDK for you!
 +
 +Warning: Currently, things are designed around the presumption that you want to work from Visual C++ on Windows as your "​main"​ development platform. Most scripts are .bat files. There is no deal-breaking reason why you can't use another platform as your "​main"​ platform, but you'll have to do more work to get it going. ​ If you do that, you should tell email Seth and contribute any tips/​scripts/​changes you've made.

 +Do you want to be a part of the magic and contribute your brainpower to the project?  
 + 
 +Fork the github tree and submit a pull request! ​  
 + 
 +  * Unless there is a very good reason we'd like all changes to be 100% backwards compatible with existing. ​ No breaking changes. 
 +  * All submitted code/media must be fully compatible with the Proton license or be a separate library that has a compatible license that allows it to be included (like libpng for example) 
 +  * Feel free to add your name in the credits of the .h file of any class/file you considerably modify/add to 
 +  * Got a question about an approach? Be bold and write something in the [[https://​www.rtsoft.com/​forums/​forumdisplay.php?​27-Proton-SDK|Proton Forums]]!

 +This is a wiki, <​del>​feel free</​del>​ .. well, we had a bit of a spam problem and have disabled new wiki sign ups.  If you'd like access, email seth with a logon and password and he'll set it up for ya.

-====Why?​==== 
-One of the greatest perks of working for yourself is you can give away source code without a second thought. 
  
-I enjoy programming engines as much as making games. ​ It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling to know people across the globe are using my stuff and contributing bugfixes and code back.  How cool is that?
