    Post What's the relationship between RGA and Symbian SDK?

    Thanks for coming first,
    and sorry for the mis-leading title to lead you here.

    But I really need your help.

    I need RGA plugin to develop my onw application,
    but I have no RGA plugin,

    and I had searched it around Internet, including this Nokia Forum,
    but found nothing about it.

    Would any guy please give some clues???


    Thank you very much.

    That is a bit hard to believe. If you search for RGA using the Search box on the left, you will get countless hits. The same applies to the Wiki. In either case you would already know that it is part of the OpenC/C++ plugin pack, which you can download from the Tools section above, but in the particular case of Wiki, the related article contains a direct link to the download.
    Note that RGA support is revoked starting from S60 3rd FP2 (or perhaps from S60 5th).

    It would be really interesting to know what you have searched for and where.

    thank you very much.

    Well, i in fact downloaded the OpenC/C++ plugin, and installed it.

    After it was installed, folder "stdapis" and related header files,etc
    can be found,

    but folder "rga" can not be found under folder "include". because i need to use something contained in folder "rga".

    So i checked this, and there is some saying that RGA plugin must be installed as the following states.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    PREREQUISITES

    Symbian C++ basics
    Game Programming
    RGA plugin
    OpenC plugin

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Would you help further?

    Really thank you very much.

    Hi,

    In the wiki article I read this "The RGA is in fact a subset of the N-Gage SDK and this recommends it to games developers. ", as I know the N-Gage SDK is not public and only available to selected member companies.

    N-Gage SDK is one thing, but RGA really was part of the Open C plugin until last week. Open C 1.3 contains it, but the most recent version (1.6, released on last Monday) does not contain it any more. And apparently Open C 1.3 is not offered to download from FN (the main Open C page offers 1.6 only, and it does not appear in the archives section neither).
    You can try asking about it on the feedback boards (click back to "You Are Here: Home > Community > Discussion Boards" on the top and you will quickly find them), though this thread may be also spotted by FN-internals.

    Re: What's the relationship between RGA and Symbian SDK?

    Hi,

    I appreciate the last reply more than the first one. With the hint I finally found a formal declaration of the removal.

    "Open C/C++"
    http://www.forum.nokia.com/Technolog...pen_C_and_C++/

    Code:
    ...
    What's happening to RGA?
    With the release of Open C/C++ 1.6, the Real-Time Graphics and Audio (RGA) API is no longer supported. Developers who want standard APIs for graphics should investigate the OpenGL ES APIs provided in the S60 platform. For UI development using non-Symbian APIs, developers may wish to explore Qt for S60.
