A plugin tutorial?

Post by Destroyer1313 » Mon May 15, 2006 11:30 pm

Does anyone know where a plugin tut is? Im learning C++,
Have Dev-Cpp, About to upgrade to a Visual C compiler,
And I want to make plugins when I have finished learning C++.
Dormant. Not really. Kinda.

that is somewhat of a loaded question, as there are many things the plugins can do and many ways they can do them.

The sample plugins that come with the source are good places to show how to do things.

What kinds of thing would you want to know? how to start a new plugin? how to send chat message? what?

Then you should really focus on learning C++ first, then onto plugins.

The plugins included with BZFlag are mostly written with C and then some C++ OOP concepts thrown in.

But, as Jeff has said before, learning C/C++ from BZFlag is probably not the best thing to do as it is poorly written (or something to that effect).
