Welcome to the CEGUI homepage

Our new CEGUI homepage is still in development. Expect some parts of our sites to be empty or not fully functional. If you notice bugs feel free to tell us in the forums!

Crazy Eddie's GUI System is a free library providing windowing and widgets for graphics APIs / engines where such functionality is not natively available, or severely lacking. The library is object-oriented, written in C++, and targeted at game and application developers who should be spending their time creating great games and not on building GUI sub-systems!
