#5147817 Great laptop for game development? (Budget of +1200,- euros)

Posted by on 17 April 2014 - 11:41 PM

I use a Dell insprion 17 7000.


It has everything you want but twice the RAM, and twice the HDD space.


Fits right into your budget too :D


I have an older model, and I've had some issues with it, but make sure you get a cooling pad to use when your gaming on High graphics settings.

#5147816 Using C++

You can use C++ along with SDL to make video games.  Why don't you private message me?  I can help you make a Pong game using C++/SDL, and you can go from there :)

#5106061 Help Me Getting Started With C# Tool Programming

Posted by on 31 October 2013 - 03:35 PM

I don't know where to start and I cannot use another language.  I want to learn C# for tool programming to land an internship next summer.


This internship would require me to know how to make simple GUI tools with C#.


Where should I start?  I know C/C++, Java, PHP, so learning a new language isn't a big deal.  I also know about game development and graphics programming, so I'm not a complete beginner.


The problem is that with C#, I can choose from Winforms, WPF, and a few other alternatives.  There are pros and cons to each, but I just want to make simple tools.   I would like to be able to create a clone of MS Paint for example.  So what do you guys recommend I do?


Is there a good book on C# GUI programming?  Which library should I use?


Remember that I have to make professional looking tools and professional looking code to land that internship.  I would ideally like to use the C# library that is most ubiquitous for tool programming in the game development industry.
