Hello Guys & Gals!
I have uploaded short video of my work in progress game “Heroes of Might and Poor C”.
I am new to Arduino, Arduboy and C programming therefore learing on trial & error basis (that should explain Poor C subtitle ). Hopefully you will like the idea. Any comments and advices are more than welcomed!
Great concept so far, keep up the good work!
@Pharap is going to tell you that the Arduboy is programmed in C++, not C.
One day someone will surprise me and write an Arduboy game that genuinely only uses C.
@TomJohnRiddle I especially like the horse animation.
Ahh yes looking at some posts it seems to me that Arduboy compiler is C/C++. However, as I understand we are basically coding in C++ in version which is strip down from some fancy libraries?
@Pharap Made in Piskel app. It’s kind of neat for making graphic for arduboy. Public version of the sprite can be found here: Piskel
It compiles as C++ by default, but can do C if you use a
.c extension on a file.
C and C++ are technically different languages though, despite the amount of overlap.
In other words there is code that is legal C that isn’t legal C++.
The language itself is proper C++11 with all the actual features of C++11.
What it doesn’t have is the C++ standard library.
Instead there is a version of the C standard library, and Arduino’s own library.
I’ve not seen anyone here use that before, it’s certainly interesting.
Many thanks for clarification. I guess that I will have to change subtitle to “(…) Poor C++” in version 0.2
I like the fact the might and magic music is playing in the video
It would take a bit of work since all the Arduboy targeted libraries, and many of the Arduino functions, use classes.
It would be very surprising, quite impressive, and a tiny bit pointless.
Have so many memories with the original game. Please make this game complete, great job btw
