In this article we’ll walk through how to use an Eclipse Gst engine to build a game in a single project.
You’ll be able to compile the source code of your game and share it with the rest of the world.
This tutorial assumes you already have an Eclipse workspace configured with the default Eclipse Gsts plugin.
The plugin is included as a plugin in the Eclipse package manager (eclipse-plugin-1.1.4-stable).
In order to use this tutorial, you’ll need to download and install the Eclipse plugin.
If you don’t have the plugin installed, download it from the Eclipse website.
After downloading the plugin, you can open Eclipse’s Eclipse editor, and add the Gsts engine to your project.
For more information about the Gst SDK, visit the Eclipse Gists website.
If your project has multiple projects, you may need to add the plugin to your projects.
This step is optional, and you can skip it if you do not want to build your game on the GST plugin.
In Eclipse, select the Project tab.
Next, select Tools > Plugins.
Select Eclipse GSt Engine from the list.
Next to the Plugin name, select Create a New Plugin.
If the Create a Plugin dialog box appears, select Use the Eclipse Plugin Manager to create the plugin.
For instructions on how to open the Eclipse editor in Eclipse, see How to open Eclipse in Eclipse.
You can add the Eclipse engine to the project by selecting Add a Project.
Next select Create and select the project.
Next add the following content: Eclipse Gsts Engine 1.0 GST You’ll see the following output when you run the plugin: Adding a project: [Editing plugin id=”EdippingPlugin”] Name: Eclipse Gstal Engine Version: 1.0 Type: GST Description: Earscripting plugin to build GST game in one project Adding a new project: Adding project: Create a new eclipse plugin if needed: Add the following to your IDE project’s build.gradle file: … eclipse-plugin plugin-name-name=”EmpEd” eclipse-gsts-engine plugin-id=”EbspEd” <project name="GstEd"] …

Add the EclipseGstEngine plugin to the top of your Eclipse project’s Eclipse configuration.
Next create a project and set the Eclipse build path for it.
For example, you might create a .gitignore file to exclude certain files, or you might add a .bzr file to the Eclipse workspace to store Eclipse plugins’ files.
When you build your project, Eclipse will create a single Eclipse Gts project that contains the GSt SDK and the project configuration.
In this tutorial we’ll build a simple game called Moo that uses only the Gsta SDK and one GST Engine project.
If we want to make the game work in the Unity editor, we’ll need the GStreamer SDK.
If that’s not possible, we can use the Eclipse SDK for Unity.
Create a project in Eclipse: Select Eclipse > Project in the project explorer.
In the Project tree, right-click on the Eclipse project that you created earlier, and select New Project.
Name your new Eclipse project EclipseGstsEngine and select File > New Project from the popup menu.
In a dialog box, type the name EclipseGstaEngine and click OK.
Next open the Unity project editor, select Editor > New > Project.
