In Topic: 2D Character Customization

10 May 2015 - 08:51 AM

I did a bit of a series on this that might be helpful.  It ultimately started with Creating dynamically equipable characters, that might be useful.  I did a series of follow up posts about loading a 3D model to create a 2D sprite and bind weapons to bones using LibGDX if that's your thing.

He did this testing for me, for some reason I can't create new threads.



Thanks by the way.



Oh, and I can't create new threads... also, the Contact Us page isn't working for me either.



Weren't you banned?

I thought I was for a moment...


Wondered if I did some late night grumpy drunken posting I forgot about...  thankfully nah, it was just an account issue. :)  All fixed up now.

In Topic: Unity 5 or Unreal engine 4

16 April 2015 - 01:29 PM

I actually just started this conversation over here  announcing a new Unity/Unreal Engine tutorial series I am working on right now.  When done, you will have a direct side by side comparison of the workflow required in making a game in both engines ( as well as 2 complete 2D game tutorial series as well! ), making this question easier for you to answer for yourself.  Ultimately both engines have their strengths and weaknesses, and what might be a strength to one person is probably a weakness to someone else!  So ultimately you need to judge for yourself.



That said, I am only a little bit of the way in, so it's going to be a while...
