I haven’t decided…..

But if you can help then it’ll be more likely that I’ll be in…..

First of all, I pick up new languages fairly quickly if I have a good reference.

To keep it as brief as possible:

  1. I develop on Linux only (currently Ubuntu 10.04.3).
  2. I would like to try developing in C/C++ (as this is what I’m currently learning/using at University)
  3. I haven’t done graphics development in C/C++.
  4. I have no idea how to compile on Linux for Windows, OS X and Linux. (help with this would be very much appreciated)
  5. If I can’t develop in C/C++ I’ll fall back to java (but may need some guidance with distribution [especially if I choose to use LWJGL])
  6. If all else fails, I’ll fall back to flixel and actionscrpt compiled through the MXML compiler (Very rusty with this though)

My current C/C++ references are “C: How to program Fourth Edition” Deitel&Deitel, and “C++ All In One Desk Reference For Dummies” Cogswell.

Any help regarding Game Programming, OpenGL, GTK+, and Cross-Platform in C/C++ is very very much appreciated…..

Finally, I would like to thank you for your patience in reading this, and I would like to thank anyone in advance for helping.




  • GEdit
  • GIMP
  • gcc – if C/C++
  • Eclipse / javac – if using Java
  • MXMLC – if using Flash/Flex
+ Any libraries (LWJGL/SDL/GTK/flixel)

    I would recommend SDL for graphics and input, as well as SDL_Mixer for sound and music if your using C++.
    A very good site for learning SDL:
