SFML News – Week 40 (2013) – 18 (2014)

Believe it or not, but here’s a new SFML News post. About half a year is it since the last news post, to all the regular followers of the SFML News I apologize. Writing the SFML News is a time consuming thing and with my internship my focus has been heavily shifted toward web development,…


Guest Post: The origin of Daeva Theory Studios

Many of you will know Artur Moreira, who’s a Protuguese game developer and also goes by the nickname Grimshaw on the SFML forum and other places. He recently released his first game through is newly founded indie company Daeva Theory Studios (former www.daevatheory.com) and since he’s a good friend of mine, I thought it would…


Building = Preprocessing + Compiling + Linking

After answering the same questions over and over and over and over again especially about compiling and linking, I thought it might be time to write down a few things, that I and maybe others could point to instead of keep repeating ourselves in the future. Given the wideness topic I’ll be writing things down…


What I’ve been up to

Where are the SFML News? Where are the Nightlybuilds? Where is eXpl0it3r? Those or other question might some have asked themselves or even me. Of course all the awesome people at the SFML IRC channel know that I never left. There have been quite a few changes in my personal life as well as in…


SFML News – Week 38-40 (2013)

SFML News – Week 31-34 (2013)

It looks like, this is going to be one of the longest news entry so far, mostly due to the Game Jam, which alone gave me nine projects to present and write down my thoughts about them. But as long as you’re not going to lynch me, for delying the release, I’ll keep writing those…


SFML News – Week 30-31 (2013)

Whenever I collect topics for forum post, you can be sure, that I’m missing one or the other by accident. If I notice it, I’ll make sure to include it in the next news. Projects Mega Man Are you a fan of Mega Man? Then you should already know of this awesome project, otherwise what…


SFML News – Week 29-30 (2013)

So I couldn’t cover all the projects from last week, thus I’ll mention a few old ones as well. Projects Cloud Wars We’ve seen the first screenshots of Cloud Wars, a space tactical game in the spirit of Battleships Forever, but with significant RPG elements, over a year ago and if there would’ve been an…


SFML Game Development – A book on SFML

I should’ve posted about this long time ago, but better late than never. A few month ago the publisher Packt Publishing contacted Laurent, the creator of SFML, and at the same time Groogy, a relatively active member of the community who also wrote the SFML Ruby binding. Packt seems to have noticed the potential of…
