A basic game engine I'm working on using the Allegro 5 graphics library and C++. Currently features collision, a tile based map, basic enemy ai, some basic weapon functionality, and dynamic shadows.

I came across this channel but no one seems to post to it.... does anyone on fj program?

let me know what you think in the comments.

No where so far, just graduated from highschool a year ago. started programming with C less than a year ago just for fun and decided a few months ago to make a game engine.

Oh **** man, you dont have post-secondary ed and can make a ******* engine?? xD now let me tell you a story of 95% failing engine class in year 3 of game programming course...

Definitely go get some diploma, maybe i'll see you around in the gaming industry in a few years :D

Well I'm working at a welding and machining shop right now.. So it looks like I might be getting into the trades and getting my machinist ticket haha. I was thinking after that I might take a night class or two, my coding is still kinda sloppy and near impossible for anyone other than me to understand haha.

nah, everybody has a coding style. it's not about understanding, it's more so if it works :P

true enough, haha I like that mentality but I don't think many of my friends would agree with you ;P you should post some stuff on this channel, if there's anything you're working on. Would be nice to get a programming community going on

start simple, the first thing I made was a game where the sprite would walk around the screen and sticks would randomly spawn and when you walked into them there was a ding sound then the stick would spawn somewhere else haha and just build on that

i would suggest you start using an actual game engine like unity3d, it is free, and lots of tutorials on internet, i learnt watching walkerboystudios videos, there you will learn to make basic games and from there you can go to make some fps, good luck

This is what I want to do with my degree, almost completed the math minor portion of it (still need linear algebra II) and i just finished my first year Comp Sci, also doing classical mechanics I and II (and III if they offer it and i have the time/money) and going to focus on the aspects of computer science that deal with physics engine/video game creation/design.

cool. The shadows are nice. The rest is rudimentary but it seems to work :)
I started programming like 6 or 7 years ago but still haven't really made anything :/
It's great to do things like this. You will learn a lot from the experience. keep going, good luck!
