Hi Devs,

I have developed a game , I got a problem in Populating scores , One solutions I found is Creating a Hybrid Project for Silverlight-Xna . But cocos2d doesnot supports in silverlight.

A chinese guy here edit a cocos2D library :

But I'didn't got his chinese solution. I just need to know is there's any silverlight version of Cocos2d, if not , How do we edit to use in Silverlight ? becoz there's always a solution for a problem.

Kindly suggest a Hint / Code to Accomplish this task. Any kind of Help will be Appreciated.

HI Totally Evil,

I want to Create a Hybrid Project in Windows phone 7.1 using Silverlight+xna template. But the problem is Cocos2DX doesn't support in Silverlight . Cocos2D only supports for XNA gaming, but a chinese guy HERE made some changes in existing Cocos2Dx version to make it work in silverlight version.

I'd create a Hybrid Project HERE named under : SIXnaApp1 , and I Created an Object of CCApplication in gamepage.xaml.cs like this :

CCApplication app = new HelloCocos2d.AppDelegate(" // this parameter should Game Class Object ", "// This param should be GraphicsDeviceManager");

but CCApplication Constr accepts game object and GraphicsDeviceManager as its parameter which is not feasible in Silverlight.

Someone told me that I need to make Substantial changes in Cocos2Dx library to make it work in Silverlight , but i don't know How to do such changes.
Kindly suggest a way to come through it, and try to reply ASAP, ur reply in questions are very late.

Hi Pardeep,

none of us are Silverlight experts and our support of Windows 7.1 is waning fast thanks to all of us migrating to windows 8.1 ...

I wonder if this problem would be similar to using the limited XNA implementation provided by the Windows Phone 8 SDK's game template ...

I started converting one of our WP7 games over to Silverlight + XNA WP7 to put ads in it. The Game XAML page becomes your Game class and then some changes need to be made to CCDrawManager and CCApplication. I am sure there is an easier way to do this so that no changes are required. the Silverlight runtime does not have a GraphicsDeviceManager like XNA has, so that makes up most of the changes - making CCDrawManager use the SilverlightSharedGraphicsDeviceManager which is an IGraphicsDeviceService implementation.

We will work on this steadily, but it will be some time before we have a fully supported version of cocos2d-xna working with Silverlight-xna on WP7 that demonstrates all of the tests properly.
