In Topic: Main differences between Unity and UDK?

25 January 2013 - 10:32 AM

Thank you all for your replies, i think i'm going to go with unity since i've never worked with an engine before, and it seems to be easier for a begginer to pick it up. 


In Topic: Strange bug in Release mode

If i'm not mistaken, i believe it's actually because you don't use the vector.

Being in release mode you are not permitted to declare variables/methods without actually using them.

In Topic: Some newbies (like me) do love to code in C++

28 September 2012 - 10:45 AM

Actually i agree with you, i love C++ and i'm not very experienced, but lets remember that programming languages are like tools,
some are better for something and others not and viceversa.
In my case, where i live we have gameloft and they usually look for Java/C++ programmers, so that's what we learn in school,
but there are a lot of people using C# and Python and many more languages,
not because those are better than C++ but because those languages were more suitable for what they were looking for.

I know that C++ it's a standard in the industry but i don't think this makes it The One Above All.

In Topic: I want to be an indie game developer, where do I start?

28 September 2012 - 10:33 AM

In my opinion, if you want to make simple 2D games you can use C++ & SDL as suggested before.
I started learning java in college and when i came to C++ it just felt natural. If you comprehend what vectors are, object oriented programming, Cartesian plane, cicles, if...else, you might actually already have what you need to start developing games. If you want to take this C++SDL route i recomend you this page LazyFoo, very simple and very complete tutorials. Also check this youtube channel thecplusplusguy, again well explained and complete tutorials that takes you from starting your proyect to making a sidescroller game like Super Mario and more, the only thing about this channel is that this guy have a little "difficult" accent.

I hope this helps you, good luck.
