Building C/C++ project without IDE

30 June 2013 - 06:22 PM

If I decide to use a text editor like vim or emacs for coding, what is the best way to compile a C/C++ program with multiple files? Is makefiles the way to go or is there some alternative?

Create enemies in 2D side-scroller

24 March 2013 - 08:00 AM

What is the best way to create enemies in a tile based side-scroller game? I can think of 2 different ways. Either manually place enemies on the tilemap or random their position. 


If I random their position I have to check for collision. If I manually place them I can make sure they never collide with an object. What's the best way to do this?


I am using http://www.mapeditor.org/ to create my tilemap.

What exactly is the standard format of sending and receiving messages through a socket? Send everything as a big string and parse with regex, send everything as binary? What are the format on messages sent with FTP or HTTP?

Multithreaded programming

25 February 2013 - 02:47 PM

I'm looking to make a little game project of mine and could use some advices.


I'll be using C++ and i'm aware of both SFML and SDL. Are there any other good 2D libraries out there for C++ that I should know of? Secondly, I wanna learn more about multithreaded programming so I want to make a game that would force me to use this.


Any advices on a game project  and what 2D library to use would be appreciated.
