That 's great! I've been looking for a construction sort of
some kind to begin my game generations. With my background in C and C++ it
should be an easy thing to implement. Also, the assembly (68k) background is
At any rate, since I am new to the net, I am not sure where I
might find the code or what I would need to implement it, if anything. I am
under the impression that I will need to purchase another software development
kit from someone. If that is the case, then I would appreciate any and all
input regarding what are the fastest, easiest and cheapest packages for
developing this stuff. It may be that I can get Borland C++. I am also
considering Virtual C++ if it is available.
For those that need to know, I am running a PC clone platform
(486/33Mhz) and am expecting to purchase Amiga 4000 as my main
development platform in the future (more appropriate to game systems such as
Sega and SNES). I am expecting to make available CD games for
at least the Sega if not for the IBM PC (a poor choice for CD Rom development
in my opinion). My preference is to stay away from the MS-Dos oriented Op
Systems. Sega and I are already discussing the ramifications :)...
I'll be looking forward to your feedback.
