In Topic: Is starting with gamedev too much?

It is easy, only what do you want : something windows ?, that is more difficult, alot to learn.

Get your project where you can program in, and forget all the windows codes, later you can adjust.

Dont forget, test every aspect, add small things and test and fix before adding big things, testing cost more time then programming.

Hi, i already found it,

In Topic: Best Game Resolution?

Also look in the future, they maybe change with 4K or 8K, still will be close hopefully.


I make 4:3 oldschool aspect also possible, with black rectangles up and down of the screen, i dont know if i wanto support it in my new to make engine, since "gamers" use 16:9.

With 4:3 ratio with black beams gives space to place health bar, score & item inventory, to keep the game part clean,

problem is you have to program more, and get slower fps.

Hi, for a 2D game, you can use sinf & cosf, multiply that by the distance, add this to your player coordinates,

now you have your rotated gun position,


You should learn about matrices, a matrix contains position and rotation, in DX9 there are functions to change & rotate stuff.

Be smart, dont give exclusives just like that to anyone.

If you need help building a recording studio you can always ask me what to buy, analog gear sounds much better.
