Game event loop using ncurses library

09 January 2015 - 05:56 AM



I am writing console RPG game. Mainly is prototype, cause I will remake it using SDL2 and OpenGL.


But for now I am planning to stick to ncurses library, for input and rendering in console.


I am using getch() function for input, but it is blocking, so If I have something like bullet objects, it moves only then some input is entered. So I need something like in SDL2 polling events.


Know all I have in input function:

void PlayState::input(Game* game)
    game->currentInput = getch(); //blocking input

Any help is appreciated. But I prefer to use ncurses for input. 

Do i have to make basic games again after break in gamedev?

Hello guys,
I have tried to program games in C++ and created games with SDL like Pong, Black Jack and Space Invaders style game, but I took a break because of university and job as php developer. It is about year or morr since

Tl ; DR
I took long break from gamedev but not programming in general.
So I am wondering if I need to recreate these simple games or I can start with more advanced concepts like AI, side scrolling, more physics etc.?

P.S.I was thinking of SDL2 and OpenGL.

Hey guys, recently I started using Ubuntu 13.10 as transition from Windows 7 and I'm quite fresh at these linux tricks. Maybe anyone knows how I can setup and install SDL2 on Ubuntu to use with g++ and gdb. Thank you.
