HELP!

Hello Community,

I’m from Brazil and I’m interested in creating and programming games, no Brazilian forum answered me, so I came trying to communicate with you, I hope you help me.

I wonder what it takes to create games. Do not know if beginners guide showing how to start, what to download, what to study.

I’m a newbie I need to know to understand the codes Eclipse or another engine? I know that uses VB6, how to understand more? I see those codes do not get more right. I am in 3rd semester of Information System,'ve been through C and I’m in Java. Help me get to understand the codes, what to study, what to do to create systems.

Sorry if I’m posting in the wrong area, I found the most viable

Att,
César

Oi, sou de Portugal  🙂

Primeiro tens que te familiarizar com o engine em si, ver as features e como tudo funciona, e depois é que passas à parte do código, é bastante fácil de entender todo o código escrito porque os nomes dos métodos são intuitivos e as funções não são muito complicadas.

Para programares os engines daqui tens que sacar o VisualBasic 6 (a menos que o engine esteja escrito noutra linguagem), só que as pessoas não são permitidas meter links de cenas assim aqui, por isso vais ter que procurar por ti.

First off, welcome to the forum! The first step is to pick what engine you want to use.

Eclipse Origins 2.0 is a DX7 base engine, and you should use it if you’re okay with making your own systems.

Eclipse Origins 2.3 is another DX7 engine (I might be wrong). The major difference between the two is that 2.3 has an event system meaning you don’t have to program as much.

Eclipse Origins 3.0 is a DX8 engine made by JC. It has an improved event system, and fmod so you don’t have to use midi files for music.

Eclipse Origins 4.0+ is a closed source DX8 engine. Although it’s closed source, it has tons of features like a pet system. It’s the only engine out of the four that’s updated regularly. The only problem is there are limits, like on how many items or quests you can make, unless you pay a one time payment of $60.

If you decided to go with a closed source engine, you won’t need to program.

If you decided to go with an open source engine, you can find tutorials here. Unfortunately, the only way for you to learn how the engine works is if you read through the code yourself. Luckily, VB6 isn’t hard to learn. If you already know Java, you’ll learn quickly.

Someone died? 😮

Sorry tought someone died, such a dramatic title….

Matt sayd everything already… 😛

Thanks for your attention, here is quite different from the Brazilian forums.

Only java is enough to understand the codes?

Where did you get the word Java from the entire thread other than from your own?

You need to learn VB6 to program for the system. But your knowledge in Java and C might help you in understanding and possible just jumping to programming systems in.

tens que aprender os básicos:

em java metes: int a, em vb6 é Dim a as Long    (Long em vb6 = int em java)

em java um método é: public short metodo(int num), em vb6 é public function metodo(ByVal num As Long) As Integer

em vb6 não é preciso chavetas { } nem ; no fim das instruções, em java um array é declarado com [] em vb6 é com () e até dá para definir o ponto de início e o final enquanto que em java começa sempre no 0, isto é conseguido com: Dim a(1 To 30) As Long

etc etc…

e este fórum não é de brasileiros, acho que só vi 2 brs aqui ainda

Não tem de se preocupar bb, aqui 90% é gente boa. Mas não irão fazer tudo por você, eles tem suas proprias vidas, e tenha certeza que o que achar em tutorials e sourcer, não é nem 10% do que se pode fazer ou adicionar em um jogo. Eles colocam o Básico do Básico.

Por exemplo, o Slasher mesmo, é de Portugal, e é praticamente um gênio rs no VB, faz tudo parecer realmente fácil.

Sou Brasileira como você ^^ , Seja bem vindo ao EO.
