I allways wanted to program a (simple) game, but i never had time for it, untill now ^_^
i've only got some problems/ questions:

1: i have googled for tutorials on programming a game engine, but it only gave links to existing engines and tutorials on how to use em. so, does any1 know a tutorial about this (preferably c++)?
2: im planning to use c++, sdl and opengl. are these good/bad/other...??
3: any (good!!!!) links to sdl/opengl (mayb c++, but i already got a lot of sites on that one) tutorials would be appreciated Grin:happy:
4: any other tips/experiences/help?

thnx, N1315

Well, I personally think that Java should be used instead if you want to make a game, simply easier in my opinion. I would be glad to help you code one in Java. I could help in C++ as I do know that language as well, however I am not sure how well with Graphics and what not with C++. Only made cmd exe's with C++. let me know whats up

making a games engine is a stupid amount of work. you could be working for more than 6 months just to get a simple games engine with particle systems etc.

but if you do want to go ahead with it, you'll need C++ and you'll have to learn how to program with it using direct X and open GL (thats if you want a non text based game).

Visual Basic can also accomodate directX programming too.

but i'd suggest using a pre-made games engine and just modding it or using that to script your own simple game. Perhaps try using Dark Basic (i think thats the name), its a simple games engine that you can mod to make your own games. pretty decent games too.

Amen cheese, making your own game engine is only worth it if you're really serious about your game (wanna sell it or sumfing)...

Well you can make a game with almost everything that can include programming. Just to show you how vast it is ... i've done a pacman game in Excel and a RPG Game for IRC ... The only thing that should guide your choice is what you need for it (3D game? 2D game? Text Based?) . If you want to do something more complexe and not text base C++ should be good.

@ blumoose and mr_cheese:
i know its a lot of work and takes a lot of time, but i dont rly care about that. its just for fun and the engine doesnt have to be crytec like Pfft its kind of my way to learn c++ .....
btw, a friend of me has programmed a simple engine before and is gonna give me the code, so i can look it through and edit it

@ chislam:
if you want to check my code and help me with some problems, i would rly appriciate that (btw, this can take a while, im not so fast Pfft)

@ a-hack:
im gonna c if i can find that book, thnx


btw, the game is supposed to become 3d and the characters are gonna be cilinders, cubes and pawns (:happy: ) very simple...
i also have found a good site about game programming, c++, opengl and sdl, if anyone is interested:
nehe.gamedev.net

QBASIC all the way, simplest language ever...

And "C++ Game Programming For Begginers" (or w/e its called) is more of an introduction to c++, its what I'm learning c++ from...

one of the most used game programing languages right now is C#

It is used in games such as EverQuest, Ultima Online and more.

Learn that language (close the C++) and then you can get the directX stuff down a little better.

C# rocks.

Ive been working with it for about 2 weeks and already have a fairly basic understanding of it. I've also been making decent programs with it.

I would say C# if its a simple game, C if you want a cross-platform and C++ if you want a totally modded out game.

Wolfenstein-Enemy Territory is programmed in C, its a 3D game and it rocks. Open source too, if you wanna look at that and see if you can get ideas. http://www.3dgame. . .075251853/

I design simple games with "Game Maker".
It's really nice software, comes with its own (easy to learn) programming language. There is a REALLY active forum located here: forums.gamemaker.nl

The software can be downloaded free of charge in here: www.gamemaker.nl.

@spyware:
i know some of those programs and yes, thats much easier, but i just want to program in a "real" programming language (also to learn c#/c++ )

heh. Ja inderdaad Wink
Anyway: Game Maker is not "one of those.." programs. It goes beyond any game-design program I know. It uses scripts/dll files and more. It's not copy 'n paste.

you can make games in any language, but obviously some are more suited then others, most of the proffesional games are made in c++ with direct x, and if your seriouse this is the one that is capible of the best games, but by far the hardest aswell, if this is more of a one of hing you planning to do, then i defiantly recomen darkbasic profesional, its a very easy language to pick up and learn, and its designed for games, the site is www.thegamecreato. . ., or for a stupidly easy fps game, check out FPSC (first person shooter creator), on the same site.

some good free modeling packages are milkshape, great free modeling and animation package Wink
or download 3dsmax8 Wink hard to get used to but is the best in its field,help this helps Grin
