Hi

Old C++ progammer here, made some 2d game-toys in pre-directX age. I would like try making a tennis game.

I know I have a hard/long way in anyone I choose, but which engine would you recommend ? (Specially having best animation capatilities/results)


Thanks

Welcome back to the fold!

 

Are we talking 2D or 3D tennis game?

Do you want to stick with C++, or is JS/C# scripting something you'd be interested in?

 

My default suggestion tends to be Unity for it's versatility.

I am a newcomer to game development myself, but I would be inclined to recommend Unity as well.  I may start prototyping this game as a 3-D version of Pong where two cubes repel a sphere between them.  This would basically allow you to move 3 entities along X,Y coordinates and to move a third object along X,Y coordinates in response to them.  I would recommend the following tutorials for assistance with implementing you idea.  Please note that basic C# and a understanding Unity interface and essentials will also be needed.

 

Vector Math

Colliders

Lastly, I doubt that these video will bring you to completion of our project.  However, I do feel this will allow you to get off to good start.
