Topics I've Started


20 February 2013 - 10:23 AM

Not that I have any intention of making a game as great as skyrim, I was just curios to find out how it was made. I'm talking about the PC version, was it made with c++ or another language. What libraries did they use?


Just wondering, Thanks


DirectX or OpenGL

18 January 2013 - 03:35 PM

I know that this is a highly arguable subject debated by many programmers and graphic artists, i also now that directX is a full gaming api. However, I would appreciate your opinions on helping me make the choice should I Learn DirectX or OpenGL to make a game. Thanks

AI in RPG game

02 November 2012 - 03:52 PM

Hello everybody,
not sure weather this post should go in the Ai category, i've got 2 questions for you all.

So ive been doing lots of c++ recently and i think i'm ready to make an rpg.

1)I was looking at games like dragon warrior for a good start. Then I thought, there must be Ai involved (beacuse the monsters actually have to think to pick moves). I do not know anything about Ai programming and where to start it. I thought that maybe just a random rumber system would work, but it would make my game extremely dumb and artificial.
Any advise, guides, anything?

2)While this is obviously a highly debated subject, which c++ api should i use to make my game.
I've decided to use DirectX for 3d games( is that a good option?) , but my rpg is going to be 2d:
Which C++ Api is best for 2d games? : I tried SFML, but it didn't have some key features like animation.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Flash? Javascript? C++?

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++?

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.
