In Topic: A Super Mario Source Code

06 May 2013 - 05:52 AM

Ok, so I rarely download source code, but I'm assuming that since it's in C, I need something that isn't Visual Studio to view it, right?

It all makes perfect sense. Well at least I can be clear that failure at this point is my own fault.


That said, I use C# and XNA so any tutorials related to that would be appreciated.

if you understand this concept (wikipedia)


while( user doesn't exit )
  check for user input
  run AI
  move enemies
  resolve collisions
  draw graphics
  play sounds
end while


you are ready to start

I do, actually.


In fact, when I'm brainstorming for design ideas, I'm also thinking of how they function in this format.


That said, what is my problem then? Why am I not out there just doing stuff?

Can you clarify a few things?

  • Do you have programming experience?
  • Is this going to be a static site, e.g. can users interact with the site or just view it?
  • Do you have anybody working with you? If so what are their skills?
  • What does your webhost support? Some only support static HTML pages, some do .NET, PHP, etc.

I have some programming experience (C#).

I suppose the site would be static, but I'm also thinking of some kind of comment section below the stuff seen in the image.

I have an artist friend who made that image using excel and photoshop.

I haven't fully inquired what they support. It's Stablehost if that make it even a little bit clearer. I've basically been sitting on this space for a while now.

Edit: I checked their site and saw this -

PHP 5.2.x and PHP 5.3.x support
Percona / MySQL 5.1
Ruby On Rails
Perl 5.8.8
Server Side Includes
Free Perl Module Installation

Perhaps it is relevant to this topic?

Those make a lot of sense.

On that note, in games that actually function like I described, is it bad design?
