Few Questions.

Ok I have a few questions.

  1. for the average person how hard is it to make a game?
    2.Is it possible to make a multiplayer game?
    3.Any one know any tuts to start up?

thanks. :smiley:

Depends on the game. But if you start with something simple then it isn’t hard at all.

2.Is it possible to make a multiplayer game?

Not yet. At least not in a good way.

3.Any one know any tuts to start up?

On the top of the forum there is a list with tutorials. Also take a look at the recently released NAN demos (I can’t find the link right now) and at the tutorials on blender3d.org (http://www.blender3d.org/cms/Tutorials.243.0.html).

  1. Depending on how much time you spend and how much energy you put into it, it varies. I would say that the average person could pick up the basics in a few weeks or less if they regularly work on it. As for FINISHING a game, whether you are an average person or a genious, it will be difficult, just because of the nature of these kinds of projects.

  2. It is possible, but not easy, and there are no really good examples yet. Ashsid has done a lot, and I made a start of it a year ago, but it’s still relatively untrodden territory at the moment. But just because it hasn;t been done yet doesn’t mean it can’t be done.

re Royal Sky:

(I use it and have no problem)

third question:
KeinStein answer include what you want.

Is it hard? Of course! If it wasn’t I wouldn’t want to do it! The challenge is half the fun.

You can make multiplaye games (I’ve done it) but not the kind that go over the internet.

Who needs tuts when you’ve got US? What do you need to know, man? Ask away!

  1. Depends on how complex the game is. The average person who has a working knowledge of the game engine can probably finish a simple game in a few days. The more complex the game, the longer it takes, and the longer it takes, the more chance a person gets bored and moves on to another one.

  2. Yes it’s possible, (assuming you have a full python install.) I have made .blend files that interact with each other over the internet, but the complexity of turning it into something actually playable has kept me from making any multiplayer games.

  3. Yes, and you would too if you looked around. Starting at the post at the top of this forum titled “Blender Games/Demos/Tutorial list!” would probably be a good place to start %| Also check out http://reblended.com/www/tutlinks/tlinks.php It’s a list of almost all the tutorials made for Blender.

  1. depends
  2. yes(ive never done it)
  3. look at the link wiseman303 provided. goto the gameengine tuts and click on muti-levil maze game. its the one i started out with. also, BUY THE BOOK.

why is it that beginners always have no idea about learning… yet they always ask for ‘tutorials’ … they obviously know ‘tuts’ exist… so go read them!!
