Tutorials on C++?


Recommended Posts

So, I recently purchased leadwerks indie and stardard edition, very happy, the UI isn't what I would call "new user intuitive" But none-the-less, I still think its fine.


But, I have noticed that this site, and the forums, and anything relating to leadwerks, is completely devoid of C++ tutorials, with the exception of the one on the leadwerks site.


And, an introduction is all good, but there is nothing on it, I a mean, I can't even find a C++ tutorial on camera controlling. Where are all the tutorials, or did I waste the extra $75 (it was on sale) thinking that C++ was the better alternative?


Also, I apologize, this is more of a general discussions question, I don't know why I thought it was fitting in programming. Sorry.


And please don't take this as anger, I am happy and willing I just thought there would have been a bit more documentation.

Zancie, before Leadwerks 3.1, there were a bunch of tutorials that incorporated C++ development. If I can find them, I will send them your way. If you want to develop primarily in C++, your main source of information would be in the Documentation->Command Reference section of the page. This can be found in the nav-bar at the top of the page. Every officially-supported feature/functionality will be there with C++/Lua code examples.


On a second note, I am working on a project programmed entirely in C++ with Leadwerks that is going to encapsulate developing a game project in Leadwerks from start to finish. The project will feature a Camera system, a Screen/State system, a Resource system, networking system etc... that can be expanded upon and used for a variety of other projects. At the completion of the project, there will be accompanying documentation that will outline the development life-cycle of the project (not necessarily start-to-finish tutorials) however, information that people entering Leadwerks, or any game development suite can follow.


On a third note, if you have questions, search the forums or ask existing developers. We are all very open and love to talk about game development and Leadwerks. I do stand-by my initial statement that a lot of development-related questions can be solved through researching the leadwerks API documentation. Happy Coding!

Hi Zancie,


There are C++ users here and I for one are one of them. C++ came a while after Lua so in the future I have no doubt there will be more. The documentation has a C++ and a Lua example if you take a look. It's also quite easy to rewrite lua code into C++ if that helps.


If you have a question about something in particular just post it and more than likely someone will be happy to help!

Well, I guess I didn't search the command reference to thoroughly, I apologize if I seemed angry or anything, I am very happy to be working with leadwerks and this was a major boost to my mood!


Also, thanks to everyone, you all seem great, glad I get a good community to work with!

Granted they are somewhat hidden.


Have fun coding.


All tutorials are updated to work with the latest Leadwerks version.



All source code can be downloaded here:



You're a life saver! These tutorials are absolutely amazing! Thank you so much!
