Obligatory I’m In post

And base code declaration.

I’ve tried to enter the last couple of LDs but I ran out of time.  

So instead of spending 4 hours trying to get a window, text and sprites on the screen, I’ve written some base code to do this…

It is just some C++ wrappers around the SDL2 2D Renderer, plus FreeType for font rendering, and SDL2_Image and SDL2_Mixer for easy images and sound.

As per the competition rules, here is the source for my base code:

https://github.com/lasty/ld_warmup30 (Which is just my warmup entry)

Feel free to have a look. I’ve tried to make it nice and clean code, (Although needs more work). It’s using CMake 3.0 and C++11 features.

Good luck to all, and here’s hoping the theme is good 😀

A new Udacity course has just begun, which may be of interest to (future) HTML5 game programmers.

https://www.udacity.com/course/cs255

(Or Watch the short intro video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=F3JeV756B7w )

The course has only just begun so there is not much content yet, just Unit 0 and Unit 1.

Free to sign up and participate.

There are other courses too, ranging from beginners to advanced (python mostly, and even non-computery courses like physics, statistics, algebra)
