I use VMware-Player since many years for developing games in VM. Mostly with Ogre3D and "Madewithmarmalade"-SDK. It works great.

Host and guest are both Windows 7. The VM-Image is on an external harddisc (connected now with USB 3.0) which i take with me and use it on several Computers on different Locations.

You are converting the result of atan2() to degree !


"Angle = Math.Atan2(DeltaY, DeltaX) * 180 / Math.PI;"


So, you need to change it to 


"Angle = Math.Atan2(DeltaY, DeltaX);"

In Topic: When to Implement Game Loop

18 December 2013 - 01:55 AM

How are you implementing you game without a loop? In pretty much every game there are things that need to be repeated (even in text games), so how are you doing that now? goto? I don't even understand how you could make a game without a loop of some kind. Even an event driven game has a loop (it may be hidden from you but it's there).


The game could use an Event/Message System where Messages are sent around.

But even in this case there will be somewhere a message-pump-Loop for dispatching Events.

the "init();" and "clearMemory();" are not part of the game loop.and shouldn't be in a the "gameLoop()" !

In this case it is the game entry-point.

In Topic: CryEngine VS UDK! Which is the best?

10 December 2013 - 03:43 AM

CryEngine is more powerfull than UDK, especially the lighting-features. In UDK you have to bake lights (which can take ages), in CryEngine it works  instantaneously.

What i don't like about CryEngine is the mandatory login (online connection) which prevents you from working offline with it.
