I am a newbie and would like to create a hockey video game, that is ESPN 2k, and EA SPORTS NHL quality. Is DarkBASIC Pro the best current software do this with? And if not then what is?

Can't you just go outside and play hockey like any other kid?

This is comparable to someone with no experience in architecture asking how many nails will be required to build a skyscraper.

Postpone your plans; they are not attainable in the forseeable future. If you are genuinely interested in this, start by learning to program much simpler things.

Best thread ever!

You need to know assembler if you want to make a *hockey* video game. There's just no other way.

Look here

The best language for a hockey game is without doubt "bf".

For those who have not seen it before, click here.
Seriously mate, try and learn some programming first. Write a snake clone or version of tetris. You'll just get abuse from the Lounge anyway; For Beginners is probably a better bet.
Just learn to take advice. I'm not trying to be mean or anything, it's just people around here tend to know what they're on about and if you don't pay any attention to their views then you won't get anywhere.

Oh my god vipejc youve made my day! Correction youve made my week! now im going to have to wipe the Cola off my monitor and keyboard;)

With regrads to you IRC and other thread post, Your super 1337 world changing hockey shouldnt be developed in DB. your going to be better off learning something like C++ and how to use a graphics API like DirectX or OpenGL.

Best of luck!, glad to see your trying now :)

Yes for sure! DarkBASIC Pro has a "Create Hockey Game" feature and it lets you build games better than companies with 50+ employees working on them full time with millions of dollars of backing. Go for it! :)

didn't you see? The EA SPORTS quality part?

never played any of these.. it's IMHO pointless to play "sport" games on computer, the only "sport" game i played on computer sometimes is pool, and only because i don't have pool table.
anyway. If he will ever start to code something, he will ajust "magnitude" of his project, and will make a 2D hockey game, if he will try hard enough.

The games he mentioned are the top sports games (rendered with 3D perspective) with advanced AI, modelling, etc. And the majority of beginners don't adjust to a lower level, they quit.

Sure, it's possible with DarkBASIC Pro.

But you'll need to hire as many people as EA have working on their NHL games if you want something of comparable quality.

I'd use HTML and variables, if I were you.

Job Description - I think up numerous hockey video game ideas, concepts, and suggestions. Then collaborate and elaborate on them. With the producers and company. And have my material implemented into the hockey games.


Man, I want that job. Now I just have to find a company that specializes in collaborating and elaborating on hockey game ideas.

Variables++ or Objective Variables are far better for these purposes.

True, but I think the real power of variables will surface once we have Managed Variables in the Visual Variables++.Net suite.
