  1. Good game development books

    Ok thx all for the answers. Ok so I'll go into a bit more detailed explanation of what I'm looking for/what i know. Ok so i've been doing some programming in c++ just for fun really, no super big projects. I did a lot of the problems from ProjectEuler, and also made some games. Started with some console pacman/snake, and then moved into sdl where i developed a tetris game, aswell as a simple Rpg game(kinda like the gameboy version of pokemon). In openGl, I read the nehe tutorials and practiced a bit of what i leaerned. So i guess i should have expressed myself a little better. I'm looking for books that can help me with the game development, especially like design and organizational structure, but also some good books on the development of a 3d game engine.
  2. Hey everyone, So i've been programming for like 2 years now, mostly in c++, but also learned some basic java. I've recently starting the huge task of learning OpenGL. I think i got most of the bases down, but I wonder if you guys could help me find good books about game development. I don't mean really the code part, I mean the approach that should be taken when making a game. If it has some code aswell, great, if not that's still great thx in advance everyone
  3. NPC interaction - need help with Game Design

    First- There's a section called Game Design on the forums, maybe that's a more adequate place. Second, yes, it's too damn big. Also, look up inheritance for that. It pretty much allows you to have a base character class and then have other classes that derive from that class, have all the stuff that one has but MORE too.
  4. Events instead of events in the function onEvent.
  5. simple c++ project

    I'd recommend this exercices. They go from beginner to "advanced" beginner, so it's good practice. http://www.cplusplus.com/forum/articles/12974/
  6. SDL move an image to specific coordinates

    Oh sorry didn't read the last part. So if you want it to follow your mose it's even easier. You jsut need to reasing the position everytime there's a mouse movement. To do so, you do soemthing like this if (SDL_PollEvent(&event)) { if( event.type == SDL_QUIT) quit = true; if( event.type == SDL_MOUSEMOTION) image.updateEndPosition(event.button.x, event.button.y); } In this scenario there would be a class image containing an x and y position and that method would simply update it to the current one whenever ur mouse moved. If you wanted to do it when you press arrow button just change the type of event to SDL_KEYDOWN and SDLK_UP. That position would be the desired one to moving. So you need to calculate the direction. Knowing the starting position and the desired end position you should be able to do it with simple maths.
  7. SDL move an image to specific coordinates

    Ok so lets say this. you've a X value and a Y value that represent your object position. Then you've a X and Y to represent the velocity of the object. What you then do is add to the X the Xvel * time and to the Y the Yvel * time. The problem you said with it being smaller then 0 doesnt really matter that much. Just use floats, but anyways if it's moving slower then 1pixel per sec will be really really slow.
  8. Probably you did something wrong while installing the libraries. Make sure you're pointing it to the correct version folders in the include directories and and library directories. Also make sure your linker has both SDLmain.lib and SDL.lib.
  9. c# tictactoe

    Well what you can do is you divide the screen in 9 areas. Then you check for the mouse click and check in which part it's. If that location is empty, then draw X on the screen. You can either use a sprite or a font. I'm not sure about how to do it using gdi+ and c# but this is the general idea.
