Topics I've Started

Getting started with C++

23 May 2013 - 04:59 PM

I'm not new to game development, or C++... but I am new to game development with C++. I've been using Multimedia Fusion 2 prior to this, and have spent about a year in college learning C++ now, so I'm hoping to ditch MMF2, and move onto some real game coding. Which libraries would you recommend I get started with?(Specifically for 2D games at this point.) We don't start using them in school until next fall, so I haven't used a library with C++ before.


A few popular ones I've heard of (but honestly know nothing about) are Allegro, OpenGL, SDL, and of course DirectX. I'd probably be more interested in something that could simplify things for me a bit to get started with, which I imagine would be none of these. Any ideas along those lines?

Programmer wanting to make his own music. Where do I start?

20 April 2012 - 12:33 AM

I played violin for 6 years in school, but that was a long time ago, and I now have little to no knowledge of music left over from that, (not that there was much to begin with... I was terrible. lol) but I'm wanting to do everything in this project on my own, including the music. Of course, the only problem with that is that I have absolutely no clue where to even start when it comes to writing music. I'm going to be using 8-bit music in this game, and have already downloaded famitracker, and gone through some tutorials on how to use it... so that just leaves the writing part. Is there any way I can learn how to do this(Without paying money.)?

Beginner Question About Game Design

13 December 2011 - 11:20 PM

So, this is something that no one ever seems to talk about in either programming, or game design books/tutorials. (That I've seen anyway.)

I've actually started coding my first real game in python, and I'm wondering... when should I start using multiple files, and what parts of the game should go into their own separate files? I'm assuming it shouldn't all be in one 20 thousand line file. (I mean minecraft has a few hundred, though it's obviously a million times more complex than my game.)

Probably a really stupid nooby question, but I'm really not sure. lol
