  1. C4 Engine 2.10 or Leadwerks 2.5 ?

    Hello, Can you folks share your experience regarding those two above mentioned engines ? I mean if game studios do use C4 engine in real life to make games and publish them in places like steam or is it just for armature / hobby game makers ? The same question goes for Leadwerks 2.5. If you are offered to choose one of them, which one would you choose ? Thanks,

    [quote name='japro' timestamp='1343512106' post='4964109'] I personally would still concentrate on 3+. The reason being that using 2.x after understanding 3+ is really easy while going from 2 -> 3 there is a high chance that you have to "unlearn" things that got deprecated in newer versions. Using pure programmable pipeline also has the advantage that it exposes more of the inner workings as opposed to the "easy" blackbox that is fixed function/matrix stack. It's just more transparent.

    @larspensjo: Thank you for your advice. I will look into it. So I guess I am better off starting with NeHe tutorials I guess.

    Thanks for all the replies. In many forums on the internet I have seen comments stating that OpenGL 2.0 or 2.1 is a bit messy because the features are mostly available through extensions and that all drivers may or may not have support for all the extensions. They also recommend not to start with NeHe OpenGL tutorials and alikes because they are old school and are mostly obsolete code based on OpenGL version 1.1 and 1.5 and that the currently available advanced stuffs/effects that we get to see in commercial games cannot be achieved while using 1.1/1.5/2.0/2.1 - It is their opinion, not mine. I am just an OpenGL starter with a background knowledge in C programming (no C++). I had no idea that OpenGL Super Bible has in depth explanation of techniques and effects that we get to see in recent commercial games. I thought it just only covers the basics and so went to find some online tutorials that teaches the new comer from basics to the most advanced techniques used in the industry.
  6. Learning Open GL Advanced Features

    Hello, I am looking for online tutorials on learning advanced features of OpenGL ( found implemented in game engines ) that are available in the more recent versions - 3.2 - 3.3 and 4.0 - 4.2 and that are at par with what is available in the recent version of DirectX 11. I have decided to skip OpenGL 2.0 version since it is at par with DirectX9 only and is almost 4 years old. What is your opinion on this ? One more question - will the game created with OpenGL 3.0+ or OpenGL 4.0+ run on Windows XP ? Thanks,
