A nice surprise!

Sign in to follow this  


I got a nice suprise yesterday. I had told my mother that I was starting into games programming, mainly for 3D, I remember mentioning something about game engines to ease the pain of programming somewhat, but thought nothing more of it. On her own she did some research and bought me the C4 engine as a present, which I thought was nice, and surprising of her.

Anyway I had never heard of the C4 engine, but I've read an awful lot about it the last 24hrs, it looks good, but am at a bit of a loss as to how to use it effectively, or how it could help me move forward in development of a game. Not being from a game programming background, I'm still learning concepts and terminology, etc.

At work we are starting into a new project in designing solar thermal and refrigeration controllers, being the only software engineer in the place, I'm to design and implment all embedded and windows application software. This means that I may not get as much time as I thought I would for games programming, so I thought I might try and use OpenGL in the windows app for graphical analysisi of the data captured, etc. spice it up with some 3d views. At least I'll get back to assembly my first language for the embedded stuff anyway, though no processor has be confirmed as yet, boy they like to sping surprises!

I've also had a look at game creation systems, like darkbasic, torque and game maker, don't know what to think about them, though I could see them being of help.

Anyway I'm starting to flannel, so as usual all comments, suggestions good or bad welcome!

Have a fun week!
