drawing 2D very basic shapes

14 January 2013 - 01:08 PM

Hello, im having problem with drawing 2D very basic shapes.

1. How draw Quad just with lines, corner should be sharp.
2. Quad with border and filled color, each with different color.
3. Triangle is again not sharp also bottom line seems to be thiner.
4. Position in code is set to 100, 100 (quad) in window position does not match(y only?) its more like on half so on 300px.
Edit: just saw problem there are many width and height to set, forgot one

I have added code since its very small and have many mistakes inside.

Thanks for help.

key press in vector

31 December 2012 - 07:37 AM

Hello, im changing handling how keys are pressed, basicly im having number keys 1-9 and for each key same function is run.

				case SDLK_1:

				case SDLK_2:


it should look like this

std::vector < SDLKey > numberEnum_vec;
numberEnum_vec.push_back( SDLK_1 );
numberEnum_vec.push_back( SDLK_2 );

				for(int i=0; i<numberEnum_vec.size(); i++)
					case numberEnum_vec[i+1]:


Thanks for answer!

c++, sdl - game editor questions

09 June 2012 - 07:17 AM

Hello im making my first game editor and have some questions.
1 I have some const and functions like message which is simple cout, collision, openimage, xypos.. which should be accesable in every class and main, how?
2 I make twodimensional vector for storing grid, also im making option for increasing grid if needed. Increasing at botom and right was easy, however up is making problems (its changing camera going up). Im not sure if this code is ok, code should add add vector at first place at 0.

    if(map[0][0]){// insert UP                    
                    vector<int> tmpvec;
                    tmpvec.assign(map[0].size(), 0);
                    map.insert(map.begin(), tmpvec);    

3 I have two class menu and map, menu have options like new game, save, load . Map class is saving, loading game. Where is better to put onclick logic?

Thanks for answers
