In Topic: Beginner game programming: Flash vs Engine

24 April 2013 - 12:04 PM

You can use Flash or even GameMaker for side scroller, internet is full of tutorials how to create simple platformers . What platform are you targeting to "release" Your game? If You are creating it just for fun, You could even use some HTML5 engine (programming javascript)

I never tried cocos2d-x but it looks really nice. I'll defiantly try it later, for now my choices are:

HTML 5: Gamvas

Android/iPad: libGDX

Desktop: Allegro, SFMLor DirectX ToolKit


You could look into MonoGame, it looks nice too.

In Topic: Odd issue when rendering

20 April 2013 - 09:20 AM

So what is the issue?


int x = i % m_bufferWidth;
int y = i / m_bufferWidth;
int halfWidth = m_bufferWidth / 2;
int halfHeight = m_bufferHeight / 2;


Shouldn't it be:

int y = i / m_bufferHeight;



And why are you using prehistorical OpenGL? Or are you stuck with good-for-nothing video card (like I am)?

You can paint anything on tiles, it is like different layer. JavaScript is pretty good for such a game, and works on browsers and tablets. You can take any JS canvas engine: http://www.gamvas.com


Or any from the list: http://www.html5gamedevelopment.com/html5-engines


Or You could learn Java or C++, however JavaScript is fastest way to learn game programming IMHO.
