Depending on where you are located geographically, it can be very worthwhile to compare even among amazon domains: I recently looked for a book that was priced 99,95 Euro for a used exemplar at w (and was the only exemplar available), whereas at w the same book ( new! ) was at only 39,00 US$ (appro...

Amazon.com

Hi Carsten,

Im considering buying some books of Amazon.com, yet I notice they say that International shipping takes 3 - 6 weeks, which seems a bit much.

How long does it take you on average to get books delivered?

just curious does ne1 have experience with C#? i was wondering if it has any advantages to cpp as far as game and graphics stuff i dont, but that wont stop me from commenting The C# language itself isn't much better than C++ i don think, infact it could be a lot worse, anyway C++ isn't lacking many...

Carsten is probably more qualified to be telling you about stuff like this really, but I'll tell you what I've done so far. I basicly ripped some windows code because I don't know anything about it, but I plan to change it later, so it's very loosly connected to the rest of the engine. I have an en...

Well you can have a look at companybot.cpp, its a pretty simple behavior. I think it works like: Just look for an entity that is alive and existing and try to "walk" towards the target at specific distance. Thats it .. Yea, i got that.. but how does it avoid walls, and follow me through passageways...

If you don't have a basic engine going I don't see why you should be looking for anything more advanced than nehe's tutorials. It takes a while before you even draw any decent graphics anyway, so maybe you should be concentrating on file input Ic, but what would a "basic engine" consist of? And whe...

does your library have a sharing system where u can check books out from other libraries? mine does. my school also allows me to check books out from other libraries aswell. or else buy used version off amazon.com since its just a book and who cares if its used. lol Yes, but other libraries dont ha...

Re: in which language should i programm my own game?

Can i use java in connection with your c++ dlls? Ummm, don't you mean your c++ dlls? Youre supposed to create the DLL, and Carsten's engine uses it. Unless Java can make DLL's, i dont think you can use it. Carsten, how come other C++ compilers dont work with the engine? You said the classes, pointe...

3D Engines

Hi, Im interested in 3D programming and i wish i could make an engine like Ca3D. Anyone know some good online tutorials related to 3D (other than NeHe's tutorials - they only cover simple OpenGL stuff), and 3D engine development? Or more importantly what subjects should i study to make an engine in ...

Screen resolution

Hi, I have a relatively old computer yet i still wanted to try your engine, it works at 1024x800 resolution, but its too slow. When i type 'v_describeresolutions' (something like that - i forgot ), it lists like 500 different types, but i only get to see the last few, so i cant see the number for re...
