    Making a game

    Even though some people say that you need to make 2D games before moving in to 3D, it is not really vital. because I started with 3D first, and Im almost finished with an engine with Half Life 2 style graphics. Cheers, -Zubair-

    What should i learn ?

    Well, I learned Finite State Machines and THEN moved on to pathfinding. I don't use an algorithm for pathfinding, but I got my own "waypoint" system. (Maybe it is similar to a pathfinding algorithm that I don't know about.) If you need more info, feel free to mail me at: zubair@armyants-studio.com Cheers, -Zubair-

    First person shooter AI

    Pathfinding has always been the toughest one for me. Try OpenSteer: http://opensteer.sourceforge.net Cheers, -Zubair-

    contracting for art and sound

    Well, our game development studio is based in Bangladesh, so it will probably be less than countries like UK and USA. It took us $3500 to get everything done. Cheers, -Zubair-

    I think that you need to keep at least 10% of your in the non-tech side otherwise you will lose the creativity. But aside from that I think you should go into AI and Physics because they are the most technical and mathematical side of games. Cheers, -Zubair-

    COmputer programmer: Career questions

    Hi, Where do you, specifically, work? what kind of programming is it? I work in Bangladesh in a company called Army Ants Studio. I am technical director and AI programmer. I mainly do administering job and ai programming. What kind of tools do you use? MS Visual C++ 6.0 are the people where you work "weird"? (strange or wacky, in a good way) one of them owns snakes... lol Are you allowed to be creative in what you do? I am the person who decides what the other programmers are allowed to do... so... i guess i am able to be creative... hehehe Finally, do you enjoy working where you do? i LOVE it! Cheers, -Zubair-

    2D Game Engine

    Why don't you try http://www.planet-source-code.com I tried some of them and they have some pretty good 2D Game Engines. Well, I don't know which language you are talking about because the ones there are mostly for Visual Basic. Cheers, -Zubair-
  14. I think you forgot to link some some library files (d3dx.lib, d3d9.lib, winmm.lib) -Zubair-

    what is?

    DirectX and OpenGL are both software with which you can do primitive drawing on your computer screen. Basically, they interact with the hardware, so that you can achieve great results with little bit of code (in comparison to the amount of code it would take you when interacting directly with the hardware.) -Zubair-
