I'm looking for some other open source games out there that I can port (easily or not) to Android. I know that it's possible to port Wolfenstein and Doom and was wondering if there are any others out there. I was thinking of Civilization (I remember a linux port some time back) and a few others. It can be in C/C++ or Java. Thanks in advance.
Ive been reteaching myself opengl so I can make a game on android. However Ive been struggling with how to build objects and scenes in opengl using c/c++ and passing them through the jni to the virtual machine where android can use them. Can some one point me towards some tutorials that actually show the use of natively built objects being created and passed through to the jni. Im fine using c... but I cant figure out how to create a scene in opengl in c++ and then pass it to java. Ive been looking at writing everything using java but Im not sure if the java bindings make for some performance
Say I develop a game for mobile platform running OpenGL ES 2.0. I have done 2D part, and now I wish to import some 3D objects. The imported 3D objects must contain the following: Vertices positions Normals UVs Texturing information Animation information Collision mesh Maybe some other things... I am aware, that I could and (maybe should) create my own file format that brings these data from... the above mentioned features plus things I haven't considered yet Programming language is: C++. Currently, I'm developing under Windows 7, Visual Studio 2010, and OpenGL ES 2.0 emulator. Later
: Java would be excellent for android, but could I port it to a web app for chrome? (and its close to C#) Flash would work for a web app as I can just embed it into a html page (have done actionscript before, didn't care much for the IDE though), but would it also work on android? or I guess there is always C/C++ but haven't heard much about that, though I think it works for both (though C++ does...I have been developing for win7 mobile (XNA/silverlight and will continue to do so, love everything about it) but I wanted to branch a few of my more polished games to google app store online
use. So far I gathered three possible Frameworks, I want to list here: XNA with the OX-engine: I already have some experience with XNA and the Ox-engine seems to be the best possible open source... is what engine would you guys recommend? Is there any other stuff I have overseen? as mentioned before getting a little more into C++ would be great to but it is not a "must have" as I alredy worked with C/C#. Most important to me would be that I could lear stuff that I can use later on for example in other Frameworks. This is important to me because I want to get deep into one thing I
Posted this question on SO but got no answers. Maybe somebody can help me here. I recently had a well-working program which streamed WAV and Ogg sounds with OpenAL. I then decided to abstract the source and buffer objects into C++ classes. I got as far as the source class. My function which returns the number of processed buffers is not altering the integer passed to alGetSourcei. int ALSource...) return -1; return processed; } I checked that error is never anything but AL_NO_ERROR. I generate the source in the constructor: alGenSources(1, &source); This also never gives any error
When it comes to mobile game development on iOS and Android NDK, some developers write their own C++ containers, while others claim that STL is more than adequate for mobile game development (For example, the author of iPhone 3D Programming uses STL rather than Objective-C in his examples. His defense is that STL is no slower than Objective-C). Then there are also mobile developers who abandon C++ entirely and develop games entirely (or mostly) in the C language (C89/C90). What are the benefits and drawbacks of each approach?
i'm wondering if there's any 2D AI source code or engines out there. I'm inspired by the Euphoria engine, and want to use whatever is already out there to make something like it in 2D, where the characters can move left and right, and attempt to preserve themselves. The only new feature i would want to add on is ability to learn from common results after an action. I'm thinking the way it would... to AI would probablly be helpful as i've never worked with it: How do you guys suggest i get started? (Btw: i'm using box2D/ SFML at the moment) oh yeah and preferably open source =)
i'm developing a android project for school and i'm currently using libgdx for rendering. It performs quite well, but it lacks a 3d physics library. So i searched and found that Bullet physics engine was ported to android through NDK (c++). Did anyone try to connect this two libs together? I've never used a physics engine/library before (i've mainly developed 2d games so i've made one my self...) and when? How does collision detection work (is there some kind of collision world/collection)? Can i handle collision detection on my own or does bullet take care of this as well? Thanks
that.... Allows easy setup of controls for a game Makes events like clicking and holding on an object easy to setup, as so objects can be dragged around afterward Are there any simple libraries or resources out there that i can use to avoid spending much of my time coding these now standard input devices/tecniques? ... such as "controls settings" or even being able to drag objects around with the mouse. More specifically i want source code for interfaces that.... Makes Buttons and Textboxes easy to create allows mouse
