Help on game engines

Recommended Posts

I got 3D Game Studio about a week ago. Afterwards I saw some posts on this forum about game engines being really hard to program. Is that true? It seems like it would save a lot of time. Or do you need to have a game engine, or make your level editor, to create a 3d game? Oh yea, Does anyone know of any good DirectX 8.1 tutorial sites besides gamedev.net??? Thanks For The Help...

I''d suggest starting out a bit smaller than making a game engine. Its a huge task, very complicated if you want to make something really cool.

Yea, Thats what I was thinking...but do you need to have a game engine? I have 3d game studio, should I use that or is it hard to program the levels into my game?
