Senior Game Project 9/18/14
Just giving an update on my learning C++. I have put a lot of time into this project so far and I feel like there is not a lot to show for it because so much of it is just understanding what the heck is going on. Since I have been used to Unity and C# where everything is pre-made for you, using Visual Studio Express and C++ it is so different. You have to set up the right folders and link them properly as well as initialize and load certain things including basic functions.
So far in my project, I have Allegro working fine and now I have my ball show up on screen (which is much more difficult than you can imagine) and now I’m working on keyboard inputs. I asked my mentor and even he was unsure because of how much Allegro changes, but I think I have it working and can move forward quickly now.
