07:34 Kanalia hi guys
07:35 Kanalia I'm fairly new to openframeworks, managed to code a bit while porting a game previously written with SDL to of 0.8.4
07:35 Kanalia today I've discovered that there's a substantial library of addons listed on the project's website
07:35 Kanalia I'd like to ask you, more experienced of developers, which addons in your opinion are "must haves" for gamedev projects :)

12:25 Hennio Kanalia: hi!
12:25 Hennio i would recommend to use at least ofxXmlSettings to save and load xml for the game
12:26 Kanalia hi Hennio
12:26 Hennio the other addons... it depends on what type of game you intend to develop
12:26 Hennio 2D, 3D?
12:26 Kanalia 2D mostly for now
12:27 Hennio also, i assume that the game development is to try stuff, understand the concepts etc?
12:27 Kanalia I'd like to use some shader GPU effects later on, like water splashes and particle effects
12:27 Hennio i mean its not for a final polished game
12:27 Kanalia nah, not really for learning :)
12:27 Hennio just to try to implement yourself the goodies
12:27 Kanalia I have a set of games written originally in SDL with OGL
12:27 Kanalia and now I have the happy task of moving them into OF projects
12:27 Kanalia have to stick with OF 0.8.4 for now though
12:28 Kanalia I'm learning the OF API as I go :)
12:28 Hennio i know this is the OF chat, but maybe try another platform?
12:28 Hennio not saying OF is a bad choice for games
12:28 Hennio but maybe there are other platforms that have more stuff developed
12:28 Hennio loading assets, models, textures etc
12:28 Kanalia I know that OF is more general
12:29 Hennio Unity like, or Unreal
12:29 Kanalia nah that's too much
12:29 Hennio for your time's sake
12:29 Hennio haha
12:29 Hennio ah ok
12:29 Hennio well
12:29 Hennio there are a few addons that cope with bitmaps
12:29 Hennio and moving things around
12:29 Kanalia you don't know the whole context of the environment I'm working in :) think raspberry pi as the hardware platform
12:30 Hennio let me look for them
12:30 Hennio also, there is a more "alive" chat
12:30 Hennio than the irc
12:30 Hennio openframeworks.slack.com
12:30 Hennio and you can use the forums too
12:30 Kanalia I know that there are better suited frameworks/SDK/libraries for just doing games but it won't be just games
12:30 Hennio crap, ive gotta go
12:30 Hennio ok great then, use OF
12:30 Kanalia still OF offers more than what the original software creators did
12:31 Hennio im really in love with it, so i highly recommend it
12:31 Kanalia cool :)
12:31 Kanalia oh and thanks for the pointer to the OF slack
12:31 Hennio :)
12:31 Hennio see ya!
12:31 Kanalia bye Hennio and thanks
