I know GML, Java and Vb. java I havn't used for SO long. In the end I'll stick with GML just because it can do everything I want it to do.

I use Game Maker primarily (and I am a mad hatter with that program), and C++ for things like text adventures since I still can't do graphical stuff (I once made a text pokemon game...)

I only use Game Maker and C++.  Normally I use Game Maker to "map out" what I am going to do in a game, and then I remake that in C++.

I'm learning C++ from a book (I don't think it covers graphics, though). I've mostly used Gamemaker, but I probably will prefer C++ once i use it. I've also used RPGMaker 2000, 3000, and the demo of XP.

Most C++ books just deal with the main syntax. You'll have to find another source to deal with graphic libraries like SDL, Allegro or OpenGL.

DirectX my friend.  Takes care of graphics, sound, and input where openGL only handles graphics.

Many pc games do nowadays...Its a growing and sad trend...opengls not being updated as ideally as it should. It still has various unique properties but microsoft cunningly put 'x' in the title so theres always going to be a directx fan. And with opengl being hampered on vista....oh noes...

hmm..SDL handles input, sound, graphics, threading, timing etc, and then you can combine it with opengl to do whatever you want (and the way you want to).


Me...Im Blitz and C++..Ada too i suppose.

VB! I'm also learning Java in AP Computer Science and we're making Pac-man in that, and I know a bit of c++ but don't actually program in it, didn't mean to click that one. Mainly VB because it's so much easier, but now that I've used a true OO language I see some of the deficiencies of VB6. .net scares me too much so I haven't actually tried it, so that VB Express & C++/C# are just wasting my hard drive right now.

I know a bit of javascript... I am trying to learn C++ I hear it pays off later more than GML. Is This True?

Very much true, im learning assembler and that will pay off more than C++, thing is you can get a job with c++ and not with gml (to my knowledge) and everything you make is half the size, so yes it does by far.
