Hello everyone! I'm making a multiplayer game, style of Soldat and the new Liero clones... But I'm stuck, I don't know if I should do it in C++ or C#... I prefer C# by a million times, C++ is too complicated, but how would the performance be affected if I do it in C#? Thanks! [grin] PS: I meant C Plus Plus, but it doesn't let me display the pluses...

Couple things, firstly, there was a thread just a couple hours ago by the title of "C# or C++?". Before that, there have been quite litterally hundreds of threads addressing this same issue. Searching is a Good Thing.

Secondly, you've already answered your own question. You prefer C# by a large amount. Use it. Just go ahead and use it.

I'd say unless you are making some AAA title where you need to eek every last bit of performance out the machine by hand coding memory management and SIMD code .. go with what you like. For the style game you are trying to make, C# is more than enough. Going with what you are comfortable with and actually getting something done is much more important than getting a few more fps.

Performance would probably be (significantly?) better in C#.

Nope, but as it looks like he can handle c# much better than c++, the chances are big that he get better performance out of his c# work, than his c++ work. not to say, chances that he actually get the work done are much bigger then, too.
