When you put resizeble inside the setvideomode() function, does it automatically set the new width and height of your screen variables?

Operating Systems

23 September 2009 - 02:30 PM

So a friend and I want to start working on a game for a portfolio some day. He likes working on linux and I prefer Windows, althought we can both work on both OS's. But I've heard that most Game Devs like to work with Windows. If we use openGL and SDL which can be installed on both OS's will the code be able to compile cleanly on either OS, or will modifications still be necessary? If so, can you explain why? Thanks!

Haff's Engine or SFML for 2D??

16 September 2009 - 07:24 PM

I dont know which one to go with. SFML seems to have a more active community but for some reason Haff's Game Engine seems like it is easier. Can someone explain what a 'game engine' is and a 'mulimedia library'? Pros and cons maybe. Which would you choose as a person who only has a few C++ classes under their belt and no game programming experience? Thanks!
