    Welcome to the Official Luna Engine Tutorial!
    In this tutorial our host, Ralph, will be teaching us all about building our own menu UIs from scratch (sort-of!)
     
    [​IMG]
    Please note that this is not the absolute way to implement UIs in Luna! Part of it is being creative.​
    So with that disclaimer out of the way, let's get on to business!​
    Ralph-san, the stage is yours!​

    Wow! Finally! A fantastic tutorial for the Luna Engine!

    I absolutely love the comic strip style this tutorial is employing!

    Hopefully now people can learn how to use the engine properly! ^^

    This tutorial is not for me since I can actually read the manual that came with Luna, but I like the expressions on Ralphs face.  So cute and funny. :L

    If you can not afford it, wait for a sale.

    But I will be honest with you.

    It is worth every cent.

    Seriously.

    I wish there was a like button because I wanna press it so hard right now.

    A really good tutorial for those that are new to the engine.

    @Archeia : Thanks for your hard work and the freebie!

    @Dreadshadow : I agree with you on both counts, and I know you love a good tutorial. ^^

    @Ikari : You would not need $50 to buy this engine since even the normal price is almost half of that value...

    @Mon Dez : Just to point out that there is a "Like This" button at the lower right corner of every post...

    Nikaia does not look to be a free font for applications (not allowed to be put in games without paying $150). ):

    Any good alternatives you know of?
