Links to FREE game engines with no codes

Post icon  Posted 24 June 2009 - 11:58 AM

So, if anybody knows of FREE game engines for 3d games, please let me know. I think FPS creator is going to take too long. Also, I always see "Error Compiling Level" in Reality Factory. So, a link to game engines or a help to my problem would be appreciated.

A cursory google search came up with these in the top 10 hits:

Apocalyx
Ogre3d
Genesis3D
Irrlicht Engine
Panda3d

Making a game *takes* time unless you know what you are doing. From your other post you are a 7th grader with... no programming background, classes to take about programming, and what not.

You have a tough uphill battle.

Side note, what does "with no codes" mean?

Also are you looking for a game maker (drag and drop things, use scripts, etc) or an engine?

Why would you NOT want to learn to program?, The closest thing you can do is the stated above programs and the cube 2 engine, I recommend learning c#, it's easy, quick, and great, and/or xna.

The time it takes you to achieve what you want, could be better spent actually learning a language.

Don't go VB for this.

I highly doubt you are going to find anything decent for free. Most of the "make games without programming" solutions are things you're going to have to buy.

Perhaps you should take the time to learn how to program, or find a game to mod with a good editor.

It means so that I won't need to program it. "Programming codes"

Is that the only line you added?

Just as a heads up - a video game is made up of code and you write code... you can enter codes to videogames ala the konomi code. Different things.

I don't know much about the other more complete game engines, but I learned about a sort of extension of java called processing which is designed for making 3d stuff and mouse listeners, etc much simpler. It occurred to me that this could make an easy beginning for making 3d games. Input is easy, 3d is easy, and it is based on java meaning that it can include extensive libraries to help with anything complicated. At least I imagine that's how it works. It is free of course. What makes it especially good is the simple but spectacular examples that come with it.
You can download it from http://processing.org/download/
If you have do not have the java software developement kit, download the version that just says "windows" rather than "windows (with out java)" or whatever system you use. You can download it anywhere such as to your documents, desktop, or in program files. It doesn't matter. There are many examples that show how to get input and even more to make 3d objects, textures, lighting effects, and animations.
On second thought, based on how you don't want to use code at all, you could try something like alice™ or scratch™.
I remember a teacher once saying he suggested a young kid start game programming from SCRATCH. My first thought was ...Assembly language?!!?
Actually scratch is the name of an extremely simple (perhaps too simple) game maker. I don't think it even does anything for 3d.

It would be helpful if you posted the full error.

Processing is pretty neat, I've been considering working with the Ruby version if I can ever finish getting a handle on Shoes.

Game Maker is a free program that can do some 3D if you buy the pro ($20 USD).

Hi ditsy5154,

If you want to someday make games, it will take A LOT of learning. It's a specialized and complicated field within an already complicated field(computer science).

I would suggest picking up a book online and reading it cover to cover.

Here's some suggestions:
http://www.amazon.co...mming+for+teens

After that, read more books on programming and game creating!

The more knowledge you have, the faster you will be making games.

I hope that helps!
