Licensing of programs my Problem

04 May 2013 - 07:50 AM

Hi guys
I am to create a game / program but my problem is about licensing which are:
 
1. My IDE codeblock & Dev-C++ does NOT allow my created program to be release as closed-source.
 
2. I want to create a commercial/proprietary Program or Game so I can sell it.
 
3. What IDEs, libraries(GUI, Physics, etc) you can recommend to me based on my problem? Can you recommend websites which explains in layman terms the different kinds of licenses.
 
4. Also does LGPL license allow me this?
 
5. Comment any further information you want to share with me.
 
*You can IGNORE question #3, if it's not appropriate in this site.
 
Thank you

Difficulty in Creating own Game Editor

07 January 2013 - 10:01 AM

Good Day Guys!
 
I am trying to create a game,in the process of designing, use some arts, programming/coding but, suddenly a thought comes to my mind
 
" I know it is very hard & time consuming in creating a game so I think that I have to create my own GAME MAKER or somewhat a LEVEL EDITOR to create and manage my game contents, to reduce the time and stress in coding and coding of the game itself, and I also want to use that created editor for my future games to create". 
 
Well, my question is that:
 
1. What are the informations I need or to learn to create such editor?
2. What are the steps in creating the editor? I appreciate even such small, general/not expanded steps.
3. Is the game size will become bigger if I use an editor than the game that didn't use one?
4. Do I have to mess with the compiler?
 
(I am somewhat confuse with these two)
5. How can I make the created game MADE with the editor DO its instructions sequentially?
6. How can I put assets/ resources (e.g. sprites) together so that the created game will have that file but not letting know the player see what the raw content is in that directory (e.g. use Photo Viewer to see what's the resources look like or use Media Players to play the files).
 
7. Lastly, What are the other concerns that I have to mind?
 
(Apology for some, but I always list my questions this way if I have many questions)
 
I listed my questions to avoid confusions and for future ones who has a question like this.
 
Thanks for taking the time to help me I appreciated every answer :D

Based On Your Experience, What Is The Best Library For Opengl 1.4?

31 October 2012 - 08:59 PM

My netbook only supports openGL version 1.4, my GPU is intel gma 3150, so for you what is the best library/tools to use or somewhat great move to make/advice, there are no wrong answers, (I am trying to create a game)

PS: I already check the net for resources but, opengl (redbook) 4th edition is scarce (and redbook for v1.1
is already deprecated and is very OLD than what I'm looking for), besides I don't have money to buy a
new laptop or a opengl book from online shop because international delivery is very expensive, I'm from
outside US.

PROBLEM - Block breaker with air hockey PLAYED with 2 HUMAN PLAYERS

29 October 2012 - 06:21 AM

Hi Guys,
I just want to ask if can I check for "KEY"(keyboard) that is HOLD/PRESSED for a long time, because I am to create a clone of breakout with air hockey for 2 different human players.
Here's the list of my concern:

1. Do I need other/ 3rd party library for KEY HOLDS?

2. Is multi-threading needed? I don't know anything about this multi-threading stuff and
I don't think about using one(I'm just a NEWBIE).

3. One more thing, what if the two players pressed their respective key at the same time,
how can I program to avoid error or worse one player's key is prioritized first before
the the key of the other.
example:
Player 1 = W for UP & S for DOWN
Player 2 = O for UP & L for DOWN
(example: W & L is pressed at the same time)
Great thanks for help.
PS: I use GLUT for the visuals of the game.

Confuse with OpenGL, SFML, and its library

06 October 2012 - 07:43 AM

Hi guys, I am a beginning to enter the world of game development.

Lately, I researched that "OPENGL" is one of the tools to use in graphics,
then I found out about "SFML" (I think that its a library or something that uses opengl).


I am so confuse because all books/ sites said using "GLUT",
but many people/fellow developers said that I must use a more updated one like "SFML"
but sfml has few/none tutorials.


What I am trying to say is "how to create own library or something like your own glut or sfml",
and why does opengl has no source code? And how can I use the EXACT(not glut/sfml) opengl in my c++
program?

I am so confuse....
