#4987513 Flash? Javascript? C++?

Posted by on 06 October 2012 - 04:27 PM

I've been doing C++ for about 7 months now. C++ is great, but its a complex for a beginner to just straight out make a game. Another thing I noticed was that C++ is not web-based. So i looked for simple and web-based and found flash and javascript, what else is there?
I still want to learn the powerful C++ though, will flash be easy to learn for me? My overall questions are:
1) Is it worth learning a more web-based simple language alongside c++?
2) What language (eg.Flash) works best and why?
3)How do I get started with this language, will this language be easy to learn for somebody who knows c++?

#4974539 DirectX or SFML or SDL? c++

Which is better for game dev in c++, the directx,SFML or SDL library? I'm planning to make a rpg, starting 2d and evetually becoming 3d.
I know that directX is more used, but its really advanced for me, its taking me quite a while to understand code.
So I thought, let me check out more basic libaries, this led me to SDL and SFML? Which of these two is better?
Is directX that much better than these two libraries?
wouldn't it be hard to learn SFML and then have to reprogram the whole thing in directx for the 3d version later on.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

edit: Thanks everbody, i think ill look into SFML.
