Hello everyone. I would like to direct you towards a website I just launched with a constantly growing list of fully commented, professional quality MMF2 examples.
I would really like some help with sharing this website because I know it can become a great resource for many people. Go check out the site, and if you like it, tell your friends.
These examples really are some of the best available on the internet. Make sure you check back later, as I will be constantly adding examples.
You can even like the examples page on Facebook! Check it out, you just might learn something. If nothing else, I have fully complete, open source engines of different types that can easily be built upon for you to use.
I kind of agree with the two previous posts. In terms of quality, it's nice that the examples are properly commented, but they're pretty basic and unoriginal - and you've got a long way to go before you catch up with Nivram's site in terms of quantity: http://www.castles-of-britain.com/mmf2examples.htm
Still, it's always nice to have more examples
I'm honestly not trying to make anything sound better than it is. I just really wanted people to know that these aren't just thrown together with bugs and unfinished coding like most of the other examples online. I am fully aware of Nivram's site and it is one of the best example resources on the internet, but the quality of most of the examples (referring to comments, efficiency, and complete coding, meaning no bugs or race conditions, etc) is pretty poor. However, it is still probably the best place to go for MMF2 examples.
My goal is to make a lot of tutorials aimed at anyone from complete beginners and up, retaining the same quality of work throughout all styles and difficulties of examples.
The examples on my site really are some of the best quality on the internet in terms of finalizing the engines and comments, even though some are very, very basic. Anyway, thanks for checking it out.
Yes, there is the guy we're talking about! I hope you know I mean absolutely nothing negative towards you, your site, or your examples, Nivram. It has been a great resource even for myself. I don't want any competitive feelings here , I'm just trying to help people out as well.
Thanks. There are forums there, but I mostly set that up for fun and will probably remove them as I am sure they will receive very little to no traffic until I get more loaded to the site.
I like the list design of the examples, like my page, and like yours, but I think I will add functions to list the examples categorically based on difficulty, etc once I get quite a few examples added.
After all the Christmas clutter passes over, I'd like to start making some video tutorials for MMF2, due to the fact that many people now go straight to videos to learn new things, regardless of other options. I will continue to make example projects, but I would like to hear from the community:
What are some topics that you believe would help the most people?
I'm trying to give something to the community that even I wish was there when I started, to help make learning these things fun and exciting while showing exactly how things work.
Actually, an Open GL tutorial would be a great video, but I'm talking about things targeted a little more towards beginner to intermediate level users. Also, there are many other software packages that are better suited to make things like that (mainly any advanced 3D). Not that there aren't some very useful features of using Open GL with MMF.
Well, one of the next examples I've been putting together is a more advanced version of the simple level editor that just got added (on my site) and I plan on adding something like UWC's autotile. That sounds like a helpful tutorial, so I'll add that to the list of videos to make.
