Just starting out with SFML
« on: April 11, 2017, 04:49:26 pm »
Hi,

Just started to look at SFML having been a C++ coder using Direct3D and Java coder using LWJGL. Could I ask where the best place to start? Was looking at creating a terraria style game.

Thanks!

Do you mean where is the best place to start learning SFML? If so, the SFML website has a page just for that:

https://www.sfml-dev.org/learn.php

I would suggest starting with the tutorials.

these will give you an idea how sfml works

these are just basic examples, they aren't split into proper classes or asset management or anything

I found the book, SFML Game Development by Example, to be very helpful. It details steps in making a game engine + game for SFML. Everything from States to Networking. Might be worth your time.

SFML Game Development is one of the most amazing books on game development I've ever read. It even taught me, a pretty experienced programmer, a lot of useful things, so it's just perfect for beginners.
