Introduction to CryEngine programming?

Postby CokeViper » 12.03.2012, 22:12

Hey there,
I want to create a simple non-egoshooter game with cryengine3, that's possible, isn't it?

Is there a tutorial about programming the engine. I'd prefer to use the CryMono addin, but I can't even find installation instruction, because the documentation seems to be offline (http://docs.inkdev.net/display/CryMono/Home) ???

Is it recommended to use the c# with crymono, or would it be better to code in c++?

Thanks

Hey,

Weird, the site works here. What kind of error do you get?

For general game scripting, I would recommend C# but for "advanced" features I'd definitely start leaning towards C++.

Since you're interested in creating something different from the default CryENGINE FPS sample, I'd advise to checking out our minigame sample and going from there. The full guide on setting it up can be accessed here; Installing the MiniGame sample project.

Let me know if you still can't access the docs site :)

Well, I still can't access the access the docu site :meh:
I'm always getting this error: Image

But thank you for the information, I'll use google translate until the problem is solved

Edit: It's a firefox-problem, with chrome & ie9 it works fine.

Check out Game/Scripts/CryGameCode.sln and the two tutorials referenced here: http://docs.inkdev.net/display/CryMono/Script+Creation

And of course ask if you have specific questions. :)

OK, now I wanted to launch the game, but I just get a black window which shows me 999fps, my console seems to be locked because when I press ^ I cannot enter anything into it.
