3Dengine that supports C++?

Posted 13 January 2011 - 06:17 AM

I haven't seen any engines that supports C++.. Unity supports C# and JS.. Unreal Engine supports something else.. But what i haven't seen is an egine that supports C++

Im not good enought yet to make my own engine and working out from that.
and i really have no clue how to make games, thats why i think i want to use an engine, because people say that learning how to handle and use an already make engine is a good way to make a game.

I dont know shit to be honest.. So dont flame me if my post sounds retarded or whatnot.
Im just a newb having great dreams :)

-----------------------------------------------------------

Ive heard something about taking and engine and rewriting to make the actual engine into a game. Instead of make a game with the engine... I dont know

You could look into the Irrlicht engine, it is written in C++ and in my opinion its great :)

Not wondering what engines are written in c++, just if anyone supports c++ scripting.. if that is even possible

C++ isn't a script language, so there are zero that support it.

Maybe one of the reasons why they are rare is because you can pretty much create your own 3D engine based on directX, OpenGL or SDL using C++.

Ok :)
What would you suggest between DX or OpenGl for a beginner? Only windows based games im gona make (so far)

And is there other things than c++ and DX, OpenGl that i should know of?
I do have 3ds max on my computer

I started out with OpenGL, but if it were modern times I might have gone with SDL - nice gentle introductions to graphics either way. DirectX I would only recommend to those really comfortable with C++ and wishing to move to a coding style more resembling what is required in the industry. :)

It is always a good idea to have a look around an existing engine before attempting to create your own, it's a big undertaking. You say you want an engine that uses C++ well Irrlicht is a great starting point. You can wrap it up in a nice reusable OOP way and create some pretty impressive 3D games quite easily (to a degree).

If you are just creating a game as opposed to an engine then you should start small and choose a nice library, SDL is a great starting point and I recommend it highly.

What is your coding background?

Remember though from the early days of graphics, that in theory a 'graphics engine' is anything that can draw something to screen, even a line, so don't think that you have to create the next Unreal Tournament. Certainly start basic as staycrisp suggests. :)

Well I think it would be a good idea to learn a little more C++, maybe you could try to make a slightly more complicated text based game before you do graphics. Of course that is only a suggestion and if you want to jump straight into graphics programming with SDL then check out the tutorials in my sig.

Good luck!

Ogre isn't a game engine, it's a graphics engine.

I think this is the best advice anyone could give.

There is always DarkGDK, for Visual C++ 2008 Express, as you mentioned you're working with Windows. It is easy enough to get it up and going though you are limited to the August 2007 DirectX SDK. It is worth a look if you're not the world's best C++ programmer.
