Hey guys, I have decided that I am going to look more into C programming, now my next question is: What scripting languages can be used with C? What would be the best (in your opinion) for making games? Should I master C before I start scripting, or learn the two together?
Sorry if these sound like stupid questions haha, I just want to make sure I'm learning useful things and implementing them correctly.
If you havent learned C or C++ well yet don't even attempt to embed a scripting language. That's like trying to invent a car before you've invented the wheel. Perhaps a fun exercise, but doomed to failure.
I just found out about Coco 2D. So I guess you can add that to the list too.
Really? That suckers been around forever... most convoluted history ever... started life as a Python library, ported to ObjectiveC and made popular as an iOS library, then "inspired" Cocos2d-x, which is a C++ port of ObjC version of a Python Library... then Cocos2d-x inspired HTML and C# ports amongst others. Insane history that library has.
And this is just skimming some of the most popular. By figuring out your requirements ( development platform, target platforms, required features, supported tools, etc... ) then you can start winnowing down the choices. Also that list above wasn't even close to complete, just off the top of my head.
