A man of my word indeed…
I started working on my game engine.
Windows programming sucks…. you have to do so much to achieve so little.
You need to do all the following:
- Define Window Class
- Register Window Class
- Message loop
- Window Proc callback function
- and a bunch of other small things
….all just to be able to display an empty window…..Yayy.
Good news is, you only have to do this once (unless you really are a moron who thinks OOP is somehow related to Britney Spears).
I also added a small logger class inspired from Richard Fine‘s (aka superpig) Enginuity.
That’s about it so far. I got all the windowing stuff from books. Maybe I’ll post detailed references later……maybe not.
Here’s a screenshot…. and yes… “Medhat is the BEST”.
