In Topic: What don't you like about your programming language?

19 February 2014 - 08:38 AM



I have an irrational hatred of the "var" keyword. This is more of a style thing as it has its uses, but I've worked with people that use it everywhere.


In Topic: Where are all the good GUI libraries?

What about Java... you can use the SWING GUI components in your UI.

That does not sound like fun. The fun in programming is the problem solving, etc... not getting points for typing something properly. I must be missing something.

Decide what project or game you want to develop, and what platforms you intend to target, and then pick the language that best suites you needs. You could go either way and will most likely be okay as both languages will get the job done. For the most part the skills you learn will be transferable... the language itself is just a tool to get the job done.

In Topic: Text Based Game Layout

12 March 2013 - 09:17 AM

I have played a few text based roguelike games in my day (nethack, etc.), and they are quite fun. I have also played a few that have some pretty cool uses of ascii graphics.


I did start to create my own roguelike with simple ascii graphics. I have to say it was nice not to have to worry about creating graphics. The idea of a text based MMO sounds pretty cool.


I would look into some of the existing roguelike games out there... you will be surprised at what you can represent with ascii graphics (different terrain, water, obsticles, enemies, etc.).
