Current Level of Blender's Game Engine

Postby talon » Sun Oct 20, 2002 1:43 am

Hi,

I was just wondering what the game engine capabilities of Blender are like at the moment, what kind of games have been made and what detail do they have. I am just after a couple of links to check out the possibility of using Blender to make games. Also, to use the engine, do you need to know programming languages like C++?

Just a quick question, can anyone help? :wink:

What is Python like to learn, because I have delved in C++ basics and if the languages are similar it would be a great.

You can do all kind of games with Blender, and the "great thing is" that you don't need programming skills cause Blender use the great Logic Bricks.
Course, to make more complex games, Python scripts are necessary.
But graphically Blender is at the top (and the fps down :?
Check the www.elysiun.com site. Blender comunity is around there.

Hey Talon

hope this isn't too late, python is pretty easy compared to c, if you know c you'll have no trouble with python. :)

Great game engine

Hmm.. I think that the posibilities of blender's game engine's movements
are just great. I have started a game long time ago with blender.
and the best thing with blender is that you can pack files with blender
and you don't need any scripts to add movement some sounds.
you can even add a crosshair with accurcy. And your health.
In other game engines you don't have every options done for you, but
you have to do some things with scripts. The best thing about blender
is that you can make your own scripts, It isn't hard to learn how to
write scripts, because I had a webpage of blender script.
But now I forgot the address of that web and I'd like to learn somethings
about the script. :) oh I'm at my father's office
and when I get home I can send a picture of my game.

hey, i think that the blender game engine is excellent

the quality of a game often depends on the game's creator and not the program, cuz i know a lot of ppl complain about the game engine and how there are soooo many problems

the biggest things that annoy me are no multiplayer/internet support, split screen and the fact that objects slow down the gameplay A LOT!

here is a game i am making with blender 2.25
i got infuences from goldeneye and perfect dark

so i think the game engine is pretty good for making games, .... well considereing how its free and all

Can you lock the file when you release something? Do you need to provide the source code/blender file since it's gpl? I don't understand the licences piculiarities yet.

With Blender 2.25 you get an individual license, which allows you to make 1000 copies.
