View Full Version : going to try coding, and making a psp game

July 10th, 2007, 05:52
Well I found a guide of coding psp homebrew games, step by step of exactly what i need. Im not sure what im getting myself into, but im good with computers, and we all had to start somewhere.. so maybe ill figure it out, any tips? :confused:

Learn a programming language first and try making a few programs for computer maybe?

You need to choose a language to learn. Lua is easier and can be picked up quickly.
C is harder but more can be achieved in this.

Most people code with Lua then switch to C

DEFINITELY start with lua.

ok, thats what i am doing, this is quite fun making programs saying "You are pressing the L button". maybe there is hope for me. :D Im not sure how people remember all these commands and variables though.

It's easy to remember stuff, putting it to use is the hard part.

Lua is very easy to understand but C/C++ isnt as easy but eventually u get the hang of it

r u using the tuts at www.evilmana.com ?

yes silent bob, they are easy to follow, im having great fun with the tables.

Make sure you get a good understanding of the tutorials first, do them twice

i made the mistake of doing like the first 3 or 4 and jumping into making a game( bad idea )

July 10th, 2007, 07:43
ok, will do, i need to remember these commands too so here i go, im doing the expressions right now.

suggest u start by moving a sprite round the screen
as fast & smooth as u can.
slow,jerky controls rarely produce the famous &
desirable "Wunmorgo effect"

Hmmmm, I think I might try doing this too, I've always wanted to code but never had the patience, but this seems easy enough...

lua is rly easy to get the hang of, a basic maths understanding and some clear logic and its easy. ive only been doing it 2 weeks and i have one game already lol

wth dangee Wunmorgo effect? please explain to me

umm,err,Yeh AnonD,
you got me there - actually just being flip y'know.
but seriously, what is the secret X factor that makes some
games totally addictive ("Just 1 more go..")?

(btw cant d/l consoleGrab thru my server - I get a screen
with 'you requested ..consolgrab.zip/[[sIP]'(or similar) then
nil else happens.wungo'd be nice, let alone wunmorgo - whats
up with Manage Attachments?)
