Learning and messing around

Post by SunTroll » April 19th, 2019, 9:45 pm

Hi I'm not very good at introductions so...... ummmm well I'm learning C++ mostly for making games (in UE4).

I will mostly post here stuff that I program and isn't just solution to the homework (so either some shitty attempt at a game or maybe also if I do homework and add some extra stuff (will separate those 2).

Games:
Pong source made after beginner 7.
Cube Hunter source made after beginner 13.
cubeShooter source made after beginner 19.

Some other stuff:
Homework10 sourceIsGone with added protection against crashing (just try it).
Snek source Done after part 1 where chili suggested to try to finish it alone.

Welcome to the forum.
If you think paging some data from disk into RAM is slow, try paging it into a simian cerebrum over a pair of optical nerves. - gameprogrammingpatterns.com

Finished beginner 13 and decided to practice by making another game so here it is.
Cube Hunter

Well now it is time to do the snek tut. I heard some scary stuff about it so hoping it goes fine.

Not sure if it is fine to post new comment when I make some new stuff (which will bump the topic) or if it is considered spam and I should only edit the original post.

Nope, you're good. Some have used the same thread to chronicle their progress like Yumtard.

You might post all your download links in the original post to keep them all in one place, but making a new post in the same thread to bump it will help people see your new stuff.

So After snek part 1 I did as chili suggested and tried to finish it alone.

Initially I was skeptical about my ability to do it but it actually went quite smoothly (there were few bugs but nothing too major).

Looking forward to see how chili does it.

Here is my version.

Nicely done, however I do have one issue. The controls aren't very responsive. Quick turns are almost possible.

Added source (hopefully the correct one but no guarantees it is the right version).

Looking forward to floating tomorrow.
