C++ update

Posted by Rainforce, 23 January 2017 · 355 views

UPDATE

 

So I managed to write some code, I decided to make an arkanoid/breakout clone instead. I do think I need some help though. I had zero c++/sfml experience before writing this, so bear with me haha.
The code itself is working, but I still need to do some stuff and I wouldn't feel confident showing this in the interview.

 

TO DO LIST:
- Add a score system (+100 points when block is hit)
- Play explosion animation when said block is hit
- Make code more organized (with classes?)

 

Code:

  • Become more organized




C++ struggles

Posted by Rainforce, 07 January 2017 · 256 views

So... I have to make a game in C++ for school, but it's so freaking complicated. I like programming, but I don't feel motivated to do anything at the moment.
I want to make asteroids in c++, but sfml isn't listening to me, haha. I have to have this game finished by the 26th of this month... I probably won't make it :/
Edit: deadline has been moved to the 28th.
