In Topic: Advices for a student completely new to game dev

02 July 2013 - 03:15 PM

I've been studying programming since I was 12, learning C++, python, C# , java , haskell and lua - now 18, I still have absolutely no idea how to program. 

 

www.cprogramming.com is a great resource to start off. It teaches you the syntax of C++ which is the easiest part.

however it's STL , IPC , Multi-threading, OpenGL etc, is when it starts getting hard. 

 

I don't think you'll ever stop learning in the software development scene.

But that why I love it so much.

 

GamePlay 3D 

 

It's a new game engine "framework" written in c++ - with support for Android, Windows, Linux , iOS and Black Berry OS. 

It's free and open source - the code is beautiful - use it - extend it - it's awesome.

 

here's the website : 

www.gameplay3d.org

 

EDIT : Oh, and don't be a numpty - use Ubuntu. Windows is far to annoying for me personally. Then again, the reason I studied programming is primarily Linux, not game design - so I am a bit bias. (The OUYA has got my interest as of late :D

Plus - anyone else looking to build games on a budget, ID Tech 4 is free too with access to source code - it once powered (and I suppose, still continues to power) Doom 3 , and Quake wars! Again - old news I know... but... just so you guys know.

The Final name? Dynamite....

A friend of mine liked it so much that he even made a logo:

BTW : No - no reference to the band - just thought a random thought.

In Topic: How does Xbox Live work?

24 July 2012 - 03:24 AM

Brilliant! thanks.
I really never knew their was that much effort involved.
I've researched a little bit more, and apparently most games are P2P ie , player acts as host and processes the game - clients get the feedback from the hosts system.
apparently Xbox Live just host the IM client , reputation system, gamerscore , Marketplace purchases and friends list - which is pretty cool.
