I and a mate of mine, are starting a project - Called Quick.
Its a basis of a 3d game - we just loading Q3 BSPs at the moment.
I've decided make the development in two parts, an ASM version and a C++ version Wink

Guess what, FASM is my choice of assembler Wink
I'll probably make it crossplatform - just to prove that its possible to the 'unbelievers' that ASM is Smile

----

SDL Demos for the curious:

Here's some examples of SDL for Win32 & Linux?(untested)

Get it and enjoy:

Cheers.

having two version of same sources is surely BAD! (unless you want do some comparisons etc.)

i suggest to write what you want in ASM, and then link it with rest of C++ project

I like making comparisons Smile

Yeah, in the long run its absolutely a silly thing to do - but it won't be identical. Its an absolutely fun project - just to see how well a pure asm OpenGL game will go.

Thanks for you comments so far - any idea on the best way to do some crossplatform in ASM? SDL comes to mind so far....

Cheers.

Yeah, SDL is probably your best bet for implementing it on multiple platforms, but you're still going to need to code some of the system specific code, unless you use vid's fasmlib. Smile
And it's rather easy to use opengl inside SDL too, it just means changing a value in one of the function calls.

But one of the things about this comparison, it wont really be a true comparison, seeing as SDL is mainly coded in C (and probably some assembly for some of the low level stuff, but very little of it), along with OpenGL, and the linux and windows kernels. Razz So the more functions calls you make, the more you're using C.

But do give it a try if you want, SDL isn't hard to use, what will waste the most of your time will be looking up the values of constants, of which there is many in the SDL headers. They are all defined, it's just that finding them will take a while.

Happy hunting Smile

Will be setting up a linux box later today or tomorrow ^^, expect a 'proper' linux build soon Smile.
And probably might have some time for other projects........

Write the game engine and anything that communicates with the graphics card in ASM. Prove those unbelievers (I call them "n00bs") how fast and powerful ASM is compared to high level languages

The game isn't, but the SDL includes are still there Wink.

Ooops yes, I'll have to search the source code again, my m8 cleared out the website some months ago.
