Opengl game project

Posted 24 December 2008 - 07:14 AM

Hi everyone,
I need to make a game in opengl as my project for university.
I have decent knowledge of c++ and no knowledge whatsoever in opengl.

The game is supposed to be something like this ->

minimum 6 different textures (12 points)
min. 8 geometric different objects, at least 4 animated (14 points)
use straight mode for drawing (glBegin, glEnd),
Display Lists and Vertex Arrays (9 points)
3D font straight in game (5 points)
correctly lit scene, at least 2 lights (8 points)
correctly transparent windows (8 points)
element system (efect of fire, explosion, bullet/missile) (10 points)
drawing of fog/mist, its on and off/ activation & disconnection (4 points)
main menu (5 points)
list state during game (5 points) //like how many points the player has
control by mouse and keyboard, free travel in scene (12 points)
main interaction user with scene (for example collision bullets with objects) (8 points)
bonuses:
use of shaders, other extension, good game idea, ...

I really need to complete it by 10th jan,
I would appreciate any kind of help.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I don't have any code because I don't really know where to start.
I missed all my classes where i was being taught bout opengl coz of an accident.
I was hoping you could point me where to start from.

NeHe's OpenGL tutorials are some of the best out there.

Hi there,

With your knowledge of C++ you should be able to make a start on the game itself, OpenGL is for the graphics side of things, what kind of game are you planning to make, write it down and work out all your engine code and other things before you move onto graphics, hopefully with some nicely designed code you should be able to implement some of the OpenGL techniques from the link above.

Surely if you had a very good reason for missing your OpenGL lessons your lecturer will understand and give you more time to complete or possibly let you resit the module :)

good luck and post some of your source when it is taking shape :^:

Don't forget "the redbook" official guide. I found it an easy sit-through and whipped up my sprite engine in a matter of seconds (well HOW to do it by the way, the actual system programming took me 2 sittings).

Red Book: http://www.glprogramming.com/red/ aka OpenGL Programming Guide

Blue Book: http://www.glprogramming.com/blue/ aka OpenGL Reference Manual

EDIT: And those are legal links. You won't get in trouble for using them.
