Tutorial

  1. last year

    I think there was another, more in-depth, tutorial on this page. Where did it go?
    Also, are there any other tutorial-like resources apart from the Learn section?

    Do you mean these: http://oldsite.polycode.org/wiki/index.php?n=Main.Tutorials most of them are deprecated...
    And no.. I don't know any other..

    I want to focus mainly on writing articles explaining how parts of Polycode work, but I think getting started tutorials would be great too. I'm actually planning on doing a screencast sometime explaining how Polycode works, so maybe that can double as a tutorial :)

  4. Ah, yes! That's the ones I thought about. :) While deprecated, maybe they can act as a compliment to the existing ones now that I know they exist. I have been trying to figure things out and it goes quite well, but I haven't used a system configured quite like this so it takes a while to get around.

    That screencast sounds interesting! Will certainly check it out if you do!

  5. Hello, I come from love2d and would like to try polycode.

    Unfortunately the documentation is way beyond me. I have no understanding of C and extreme lack of OOP knowledge.

    What I need is a tutorial that will allow the user, starting with 0 to

    1. import a 3d model or two
    2. make key presses and/or mouse clicks and/or joystick use move and rotate the model
    3. (optional) make another key/mouse-button/joystick-button press shoot projectiles.
    4. (optional) have a counter write how many bullets were shot so far.

    I think this would allow beginners to get started and hopefully understand the - as far as I understand - more abstract documentation.
