In Topic: html5 canvas and chrome extensions

09 October 2013 - 09:54 AM

You can find some helpful resources here (not all are HTML5). Also I found the Phaser framework to be very helpful when building HTML5 games. It's made by the same guys that made Flixel for Flash. It has been released recently so the documentation is a bit scarce but they are working on it. You can also find a lot of helpful resources in the forum and get a pretty fast response when opening a thread.

 

Unfortunately I don't have experience with Chrome extensions so I can't give you advice on that part. But as far as I see there are some games in the store that are Canvas based. Maybe you're running into some security restrictions.

Thanks, I will check all these out more thoroughly when I have more time later. I am still just learning about chrome extensions so I will continue to read about them and see if I can fix the problem when I have more knowledge about them. Thanks for these resources they look very helpful and what i had in mind!

this website's member are just start thinking and acting against me. I'm really sorry for you.

I advertised this videos in so many websites and I get so many good , positive and negative feedback from polite people.

The Only thing that I get from here is "NEGATIVE" , even when I'm explaining the Most important thing in games, limitation.

If you haven't read I don't care, but if you want to act like losers and just put negatives and dislikes on my posts , you are on your own.

it is very rude.I can see it. everyone is acting some kind of weird.

and I know I get some dislikes from this post too. cause who cares , "that guy is posting , boo that shit, he is stupid!!!"

I'm sorry for this website and it's members.

I don't think anyone has purposely been rude or negative, just tried to point out how you can improve your videos and teaching ability.


In Topic: Java or learn c++

22 March 2013 - 02:02 PM

I don't use either, but I have heard that it really doesn't matter. There are great games made in java and great games made in c++. When you think about it, they are both incredibly popular languages and are for a reason, both are very powerful tools. If I were you I would simply stick to java, but if you think you will prefer c++ more, use that. I think it is more of a personal preference than a definite answer.

Just gonna put this out there,

I think you should focus on actually publishing a game before teaching others game creation. It just seems incredibly ...  unconvincing. I mean trying to teach people game development when we don't even know if you had made a game before is just ridiculous.

 

I skipped through some of your tutorials and you missed out a massive part of development, that you need to be able to program games. When I watched your tutorials you made it seems as if as soon as you had a good idea for a game it just magically became created. I personally think you should be telling people how to do something simple, like code a shape and make it move - or something really basic like that. Telling people about game design when they can't design games is utterly pointless. Especially as your tutorials are titled "Steps on How to Become Game Developer" when, for me at least, you missed out the main step. Programming. You could of at least started by explaining to people that games are written in code, what languages there are etc. I think it gives people a kind of false hope when it appears that game creation is as simple as thinking up ideas. Furthermore your videos are filled with unnecessary humor and never get to the point. 

 

Sorry if I sounded very judgmental and arrogant, this is just my opinion of what I have seen. When I was learning to make games I don't think any of your tutorials would have been any help to me at all. But please do not be disheartened, work on publishing some of your games - even if its just on a online game site that it littered with ads, people are going to want to see some of your work first, especially when a lot of the video comes across as unconvincing. 


In Topic: Learning Javascript

21 March 2013 - 01:18 PM

Also once you have learnt some basic javascript (and if you know some html - its very easy to learn) I would recommend buying a book called "html5 canvas" by Rob Hawkes. It teaches you how make simple applications and games with pretty basic html and javascript.
