How hard for me to learn up an SDK?
« on: February 06, 2012, 11:27:00 PM »
Hello there,

It's been years of enjoying Half-Life series - and had aspired to make a HL mod.

Also, there's the Unreal Development Kit here.

Are these both DKs have a specific learning curve? Let's say if I have to make a whole small game out of a UDK (or Source SDK), is it even possible?

Thanks for opinions. :)

Udk is fairly easy to learn through youtube vids and such (Im learning myself)
dev kits like udk are made specificly for making an entire new game based around a game engine.
Im not too sure about sdk though, sounds like a cool weekend project. Keep me posted, i may be able to help.

Hmm. I'll watch these videos one by one if I'm free enough.

Plus, I believe it may involves programming - my C++ is pretty limited as I'm only primarily dealing with C and assembly.

I might have to do it one by one - the animation and the texture design seems a lot to me, so I'm taking baby steps.

Welcome to the forums The_YongGrand.

Here is a link to really good site with tutorials. http://www.3dbuzz.com/vbforum/sv_home.php

You just need to register and that's it. Some of videos are for premium members, but most videos are free to watch.

Good luck!

When I get mad I just want to go POSTAL.

UDK is pretty cool. You are able to learn basic tasks pretty quick, you can also do good looking stuff in a matter of months but I think the best of all is that UDK is free.
