  1. That one is interesting.
  2. 1 - Porque hablamos en ingles si vos sos de España y yo de Basuralandia. 2 - Los dos pensamos igual. E indirectamente con eso que cite, me contestaste. Mi duda era en que perder tiempo. Y veía que sfml no producía nada bueno incluso en 2D. Por lo que me pareció (divertido) pero inútil, ya que siendo programador puedo calcular lo que me va a llevar aprender sfml y me parece que no rendiría el asunto y podría haber invertido el tiempo en otra librería de la cual se valoraría el esfuerzo. Osea que lo que vos me planteas es: ¿Aprender direcftx o opengl (y las librerias que lo acompañan) y arrancar humildemente haciendo porquerias y luego meterlas en un portfolio para poder entrar en una empresa tanto de desarrollo de videojuegos como de otros ámbitos de la programación.?. Si es asi, ¿Que otras librerías acompañan a Opengl (audio, red, etc)? ¿Sirbe para hacer 2d, que seria el equivalente a Opengl para 2D, o ahi si me sirve SFML y listo? Saludos cordiales, Santiago.

    Starting a new 1v1 fighting game

    From my experience, what makes a fighter entertaining are the different responses to attacks and the effects of the attacks. Also a 2d fighter would not stand out if it's not based on an anime (fanservice). If you want a good example of fighter look at : Bleach Blade Battlers 2 PS2 and Def Jam PS2. From the drawing style. As most of the audience will be male; the characters should be 2 or 3 atletic man (the punk, the retro-rocker, the worker) a police and a fat man, and old person or a drunk, and then a lot of ladies with sexi outfits. You can make moves like : Blocking, counter-atackes, blocking with stun, defense break, trowing techniques, special powers, and such. Let me tell you my friend, that in the 2d fighting world, everything has been invented already. Saludos.

    C# Programmer seeking Project

    What you need most is a musician and a cartoonist. Everything else can be easily achieved by adding programmers. Why I tell you this. Because I am starting in game dev (I think you too) and have learnt that librarys like sfml let you make a plataformer in one afternoon by yourself. So, you would bee needing an artist more than a programmer. If you use unity I'ts even less code. But harder to find someone who makes the 3d models. I wish you luck!
  5. @jjimenezg93 I understand that there are options, needs, and a "what I want" factor. The thing is I don't care for that stuff. I left that behind with my youth. What I focus now Is to use the skills I have acquired (C, C++. C#, and web) for something I like and know I'm good at designing; I've wasted almost 20 years playing video games and learnt how they should be done, so I would like to give It a shot and If I fail at least I would have enjoyed It. On the other hand, despite the fact I wouldn't mind moving, I live in Argentina and the only It stuff around here are web development enterprises (little ones), so there is nowhere to move. I wouldn't mind moving to another country, but I don't think It is possible because you have to get a job first and then get a visa; we Argentinians can't enter any country like Americans or such. With that in mind, I would like to ask for an advice on wich technology should I invest time. Because I work and don't live in my parents basement; and time is something I don't want to waste. Lets put it in clearer words: 1 - You can make an aplication, with a software for making them; but it would be for personal use and hardly to sell. 2 - You can make it yourself, and then sell it. This can be achieved in 3 degrees of complexity: 2.a - You can program in Visual Studio and use the drag and drop tools from windows forms. 2.b - You can use C and call the Win32 Api. 3.c - You can build your Api. The same can be achieved in 4 ways, but some are fast useles and the other hard useless. And all of them requiere that the programmer learns It, So, I would like to know what to do, because I am lost. I like videogames and want to make them myself; and If that knowledge is usefull for working nowdays would be perfect. For example if people use unreal engine for making profesional games, and I already know C++; why should I waste time with SFML (one an Engine, the other a library; but are made for the same porpose).
  6. I´ve been searching in the web since last year and couldn´t find an answer. All I find are "recommendation" posts that are based on preferences or trivial and ambiguous matters such as difficulty. If It takes me 1 year to master SFML and it takes me 2 years mastering Opengl and the other libraries needed; I would choose Opengl; because I would be wasting 1 year in something that has only hobby uses. If I invest a year in learning something I would like to make a profit from It. Also If an Engine would be moer job-wise, I would choose that instead. I am in second year (finishing) in Software Engineering (in Argentina) and have advanced knowledge in C, C++, C#, Net, Web languages; and a little of Assembly. So I don't need the basics of language. I found SFML and It comes with a bunch of services (net, audio, graphics) and used it a bit, and found it quite information-less; I heard about DirectX and Opengl, but all I find is "It is verry difficult, use SFML". If you ask me about hobby, I would like somethinc close to code and efitient; for 2d graphics that I could draw myself. If you ask me about work, I would choose something that could help me get a Job. What would be awesome is, if there is something that could be a mixture of that. Thanks in advance, Santiago.
