Welcome to your CRYENGINE latest Master Class! Today we’re giving you a comprehensive tutorial covering the Entity Component system in CRYENGINE, the latest video in our series that gives you techniques from experts at the studio.

The tutorial is hosted by Crytek Software Engineer, Alexander Klinger, and in just under an hour you’ll be taken step by step through a simple project which shows you how to use and combine components, and how to create your own custom components in C++. Once you’ve completed the tutorial, you’ll be able to make your own components for your projects.

Why developers choose CRYENGINE - Part 3


  • pequenosoldado

    great contribution, it would be interesting to see things with the volume sensor

  • ThePixelMatte

    i still fail to add the material.

    Finally! Nice! Make more C++ stuff. And also Schematyc. The coding side of development is rather the most difficult and complicated to learn and understand. And the lack of knowledge in coding and visual tools (and its poorness) limits indie devs and new users in realisation of their ideas strongly. So, it should be highlighted especially. Hope, someday you'll catch up UE Blueprints, too. It will be a heroic act worthy of gratitude. My best regards, Crytek! Thanks , Alexander, personally!
