RTS Game - new project

Hi Guys I've been gone for summer holidays and right now I'm a bit busy with moving towards my new place (we bought a house yay) but I keep programming when I can. I thought it would be fun to keep you guys informed with my progress all along, so I'll try to update this post every now and then. The ...

Re: Noob learns to code in 3 months

I'm a bit late to the discussion but I found Khan's Academy (https://www.khanacademy.org/) extremely useful to review trigonometry, functions and matrices (math in general). He explains it very well and the exercises help to anchor the knowledge firmly. It took me a few months worth of evening study...

Re: New Project?

I'm sitting here thinking about what to reply. I shouldn't feed the animal, since the only way from here on is down :lol:

Thanks for the short tour of the Japanese (gaming) sub-genre though, very educational :D You're definitely a man of culture.

Re: New Project?

DUDE WHAT
and there are like several versions of it
oh my god my EYES

How do they say it "on the internet"? Ah right, "never nuke the same country twice" :o

On the upside, the music is good. But I think I'll stick with procedural graphics. My bad for asking :lol:

Re: New Project?

Hi Guys, thanks for your replies! @Manieknr1: google "paint warrior" for giggles ;) @Chili: I made a minesweeper clone about 20 years ago in Watcom C, had to increase the stack for that one ;) So I'm like "been there, done that" when it comes to the recursive function. I thought about ripping the gr...

New Project?

'Sup guys I finished the Arkanoid clone and never looked back. Maybe I should've, but I didn't :twisted: Now I'm dying to see more of these awesome 3D tutorial video's but Chili's been focusing on other series recently. So I need something to stay busy in the meantime. However, I'm not the guy with ...

Re: I am A needy little idiot

Hi Concerning books, I really liked the C++ books from Herbert Schildt, he explains in a very clear style in my opinion (just c++ though, no windows / graphics programming and only C98c98): https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51T3NSV6NQL.jpg The book(s) by Peter Walsh are not bad either...

Re: Please Review my game :D

Cool! You did not implement the rockade though? Also, there is one more obscure move to implement, named "en passant", see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fcvS9lvbs8 :) Gotta be complete eh :p Otherwise a solid base to make a chess game, gfx are top notch, no glitches. Works good, keep it up! Can't...

Re: 3D Framework - scene with sphere! As detailed as needed.

Will you go directly to Gouraud shading or start with Larousse shading, then Gouraud, then Phong shading? Can't wait to see the tutorials! I kind of know how they work but implementing them is another matter of course.

3D Framework - scene with sphere! As detailed as needed.

Hi everybody, in order to learn to understand Chili's 3D Framework I added a scene with a sphere (the first scene actually so I didn't have to hit the tab button each time :mrgreen: ). You can choose how many "slices" the sphere is made of in each direction (from 0 .. 2 PI and from top .. bottom), j...
