Task Name Objectify CruisE Engine
Technical Contact(s) Eugene Sandulenko
Subsystem Engine


The CruisE engine also started out as an external project by Yaz0r. Originally it was written in plain C. ScummVM is a C++ project, so we need to objectify this engine without changing/breaking its behavior.

The engine itself is well-structured, hence many functions/variables which might be good candidates for being grouped together into a C++ class are already grouped by files.

No deep knowledge of the engine internals is required either.

We have previously "objectified" several other engines, namely SAGA, Gob and AGI, so one can learn a lot about various approaches how to do this by tracing through our SVN/GIT repository.

Required Skills:

  • Strong C++ skills.
  • Engine internals could be studied within a week or less.
