Help to decide
« on: August 23, 2009, 07:53:42 am »
Hello, I am currently making a game and I am using HGE hge.relishgames.com/, lately I have realized it might not be what I should be using. I was wondering what everyone thought, when it comes to switching to sfml. The game is a 2D game based on the concept of worms, though different.

HGE uses DirectX as its graphics API, as far as I know, which means it will only work under Windows.  SFML uses OpenGL so it will work on Mac and Linux also with a simple recompile being all that's needed to get it working on those platforms (assuming you follow a few unmentioned rules about file permissions).
