#5106228 Looking for a good engine.

Try to check www.unrealengine.com/udk/


Thanks for your answer. but it says 404 Page not found. And I was told UDK won't support C++ language.



An explanation of why you've received downvotes...

I had no time to think how to write my question.Thanks to you for your tips, just edited my first post.



Please tell us what game you're trying to make (genre), and perhaps give us a rough outline of what you want the game to be about....


A game engine does not "support" C++. You make it sound like C++ is something that can be built into a game engine, but the opposite is true. Further, you can't "export" your game from C++ to multiple platforms because that's just not how it works.

It looks like a GTA game, you can go to a city, drive and walk (When I say GTA, I obviously don't mean GTA V or even something close to that,though).

And what I mean by "Supporting C++" is something like "Using C++", Thanks for your answer. I just forgot to say the game genre in the first post.


Unreal Engine is not free by using C++ it will cost you 50k

Why do you want to create a game in C++ if you are a noob in it?

The length of working on a game in C++ depends on your skills even using an engine.

You can use Unity easy and fast. 


Oh, thanks for your info. That's expensive, isn't it?

Because we seriously like to program in C++ .


 Thanks for your advice.


If you are a noob at C++ you should really not use C++ on a game project. That's assuming you want to finish the project within a timeline instead of just noodle around with it as a hobbie or learning experience.


If ever there was a framework for you it's Unity. You can develop with it for free, until the point at which you would like to get a license for Android. PhysX works on all devices, and is actually quite well optimized when using CPU. The graphics are only as good as the input from your creative team. You aren't going to get CryEngine graphics on a mobile device for no money. In fact you aren't going to get it for any amount of money. The best mobile GPUs on the market are likely worse than the onboard GPU in the worst computer in your house:


Very thanks for your reply. But I heard PhysX is not supported in AMD (I mean non-nVidia) devices.
And there's no time limitation for the project, we want to make the game for fun AND for earning money,too.

Thanks for your replies. I think I choose Unity.

Hi, I'm very new in game coding but I do program in C++.

I'm going to make a game with our group next 2 years. I'm somehow advanced in 3D Max, So I not only have to help our group to program the game but I also have to make 3D models. One of us know C# a bit. And I don't plan to use any other language as the game is related to my university lessons and all of the lessons are about C++ (to the time I'm writing this post).


  Due to the things I said, I want to download/buy a game engine that:

1) has superb graphics and physics

2) supports C++ and 3DsMax objects AND 3DMax animations. OR (that's really important) supports C++ and is capable of animating and creating 3D models just like 3DsMax or easier (faster 3D modelling) than 3DsMax.

And my last must-have option for the game engine I want to download/buy is:

3)Exporting, I mean I want my game be played not only in PC, but in Android (other platforms are not necessary but are magnificent to be supported by the game engine).


4) Some additional stuff that is good if the game engine has them:

  • We want good graphics for the game and we want our game playable in PC and Android.
  • We are looking for a game engine that does most things it self (in order to save time)



Note: I found Unity is superb (although it doesn't support C++ completely, we can do something with C#) yet it's graphics are too low and it has The nVidia Physics  that means people who has AMD graphics cards won't like my game. Unreal on the other hand don't support some multiplayer code stuffs and I was told it doesn't support C++ at all yet it has superb graphics. Cry Engine seems it'll make us cry as we are noob in game programming and the game engine is really advanced. Then I have no idea what game engine to choose, Please help me to choose a prefect game engine.


Additional Notes: 

We're also noob in C++ coding that's why I said we want to make a game next 2 years.

We're not sponsored, we don't have even a little money, so we want to finish it with the most economic way.


Thanks for taking your time for reading this.

I'm looking forward for your answers.
