Which Library

Post by speewave » Sun Jul 30, 2006 10:23 pm

I saw 2 libraries that caught my eye and are heard about recently in other qb games. Future.Library and DirectQB. Which one is easiest or best.

I prefer RelLib for GFX only, as it is unmatched in speed. However, if you need sound and GFX, use DirectQB. If you want to use resolutions greater than 320x200, use Future or ugl (Useless Game Library). If you expect to games with this, forget it because it's too slow and won't even work on new PC's.

In other words:
GFX ONLY: RelLib
SOUND & GFX: DirectQB
NOT GAME: Future/UGL

If you have the programming ability to make a GUI, then you could use Future.Library to make a nice one. But without the programming skill, a library is almost useless.

No, uGL is a totally different library built by different people. uGL is designed better and implemented better than Future.Lib.
