Transferring from java to c++

07 December 2012 - 11:00 PM

Hello everyone,

I'm deciding to learn c++, more indepth than I do at the moment.

I have 2 OpenGL programming books in c++ and would definitely like to read them, though, I'm concussed on wether I should start with SDL and making normal windows applications. Any advise?

Thanks, for any help.

How do Rotation Matrix Work?

13 November 2012 - 08:11 PM

Hello everyone,

I saw a couple of articles on wikipeadia and other places about rotating shapes using Matrix.

I do not have much experience with Matrix in general, but I can do my reasearch.

Now the thing that I would love to make is, kind of my own rotating shape, from scratch in java.
I mean drawing everything without any help from any library and then using a rotational matrix (Sorry if the name is wrong!) and make a 3D picture. I already have done 2D graphics.

I would just love to go through the work and understand how exactly it works.

Thanks for the help, if possible.

Collision detection

11 June 2012 - 06:25 PM

Hello i have a question about collision.

I was seeing the following video, , and I asked myself "How is the collision being made with multiple walls, in different places"?

When I usually do collision detection it is a square and the boundaries of the frame.

Now I would like to make a level and the way I did this was with a picture, are there other ways?
If so what are those?

Giving graphics programming a try

11 June 2012 - 09:25 AM

I'm at the moment sure that I want to be a Computer Sciencetist. Now, what I would like to do in the field is unkown to me.
I have tried making games ( Which I never finish), and physics simulation using graphics which I enjoy. I have also done Desktop applications.

So my question is, can you guys recommend a library for graphics related purposes in Java or if you think C++ would benefit me more I would also be glad to learn a bit about it.

If there are also some tutorials that you can recommend I would I accept them all.

Creating mods, where can I start

25 August 2011 - 08:27 AM

Hello forum.

I'm looking for a good open source game to create a mod in, and that I can do some basic editing. I'm trying to make something with saurbraten but I can't seem to find any tutorials.
If you guys can recommend anything please post it.
By the way why whenever people make maps they are called a mod aswell? Does any programming go into it?
