LINKS: Top 10
VB Gaming Sites
a break from the normal site links page where
you're left with a list of 200 links and brief
descriptions (if your lucky) I wanted to try something
different. Instead of that long list I'm going
to have 10 links, and only 10 links. The following
10 links will be your gateway to the best visual
basic gaming or multimedia related websites -
using these sites and this site there will be
very little that you cannot find. Link number
1 is the best, link number 10, whilst at the bottom
is by no means the worst - of the 100's of sites
out there, being in the select 10 can only be
a good thing!
you think you've found a site that challenges
any of the sites on this list then let me know
me with the address of this amazing site,
a brief description of what's on the site, and
most importantly why you think it should be in
the top 10. I will then go and have a good look
at the site and decide if it's worthy of knocking
any of the existing sites off the list - if it
is, the list will be shuffled around to make room
for the new site. Simple as that. Oh, by the way,
my decision is final.
LUCKYS VB GAMING PAGE
With an extremely active message board and a massive
collection of tutorials covering all aspects of
VB Game development, Lucky's site is not one to
miss. Check back recently for active competitions/features
and (of course) the very lively message board.
Voodoo VB -
VoodooVB may well not have the largest collection
of tutorials around, but the excellently designed
site and active message board make up for this
minor deficiency, the tutorials and articles
that are on this site are well worth reading,
and cover the topics well.
The Nexus -
The nexus (at time of writing) doesn't have any
tutorials or articles to read, but it makes up
for this with an active message board and a news
page - check by this site for all the latest game
development news from the community. David has
done an excellent job of migrating from the now
deceased VB-Gaming Central, the excellent design
and the prospect of new features makes this a
site worthy of its place.
Non-Linear Solutions -
Whilst this site may well not be as big as some of
the other sites around, what you will find here is
all excellent material; especially noted for some
of the more innovative and original visual basic
projects - want a fast voxel engine in VB? time to
pay wolfgang a visit...
Quite an old site this one, but its home to some
very clever bits of code - pixel level effects
(ripples, bump mapping, Alpha), and some basic
DirectX games. Most of the content is quite old,
and there aren't many new additions; but most of
the stuff here worked the same 10 years ago, as
will it in 10 years time (maybe!) - so just
because some of it is old doesn't mean it's not
worth the time...
VB Gamers Haven -
One of the oldest sites in the community, and
home to some of the more "less serious"
parts of the community. Check by here for reviews,
news, articles and vb gaming humour...
The Black Hole -
The black hole is entirely RPG (Role Playing Game),
however, general vb discussion and articles do
make an appearance. A good starting place if you
are interested in RPG development and/or meeting
other RPG developers.
Ancient Code - www.ancientcode.f2s.net
Whilst only a small site, the content is good
and original, includes information for the Windows
API and DirectX as well as an ongoing Isometric
An upcoming VB Game programming site
Findtutorials.Com DirectX section
A search engine for DirectX related tutorials.
