Hmm, I guess I don't like the idea. Feels out of scope to me, but I didn't think much about the pros and cons, yet.

Did you try aligning your view to integer coordinates?

Maybe you shouldn't use such intense red/green/blue contrasts. Take a look at Eufloria for example.

I would not inherit anything but have a sprite (or whatever you need) as a member of your class and give it a draw function that takes an sf::RenderTarget& because I tend to think of my game objects relationship with their graphical representation as a "has a" relationship.

As a side note: as soon as you start to use inheritance for different types of game objects you should stop that and implement a component based game object system. In such a component system every object that is supposed to be rendered has a rendering component. See Tank's blog posts: http://stefan.boxbox.org/2012/11/14/game-development-design-1-the-component-system/. However, if your game is very simple your approach will make everything work with less headaches.

Have fun and keep us updated!

If so, how would that be done?  Create a draw method which takes in a reference to the main drawWindow and use that argument to draw the this->Sprite on it or what?

The essence of this thread should be condensed and put somewhere into the SFML networking tutorials ;)

Make it single-threaded, it will save you a lot of headaches and you get rid of your spikes ;)

I thoroughly enjoyed the windows bashing. Deving on win is a pain.

There is no way anyone can help you without further information.

You can use plain OpenGL to render your models.

To run your application one needs both the 32 bit build of the game AND a 32 bit build of libmono. However, in the ubuntu repositories there is only a 64 bit build of libmono.

Hi K-Bal,

Does the build not work on your 64-bit machine?  Does an error message appear?

I was hoping to create just one Linux build that works on both 32 and 64-bit machines.

There is no 32-bit build of mono in the repositories and I'm lazy ;)

Looks nice. Can you provide a Linux 64 bit binary?

You can also do something like window.Clear(sf::Color(0,0,0,100));

These are axis aligned rects so you don't need 4 points but 2 points.

Left is point1.x, Right is point2.x, Top is point1.y and Bottom is point2.y.
