Language Recommendation
« on: February 08, 2005, 06:38:44 pm »
I originally posted this in the QT/QTopia development forums, but hopefully I can be forgiven for reposting it here, as it's now been a week and a half with only 25 views, no replies.

Anyways, can anyone recommend a language for creating games [mostly RPGs, but who knows] with? My Zaurus is the 5500, with Opie OZ. I'm leaning towards Java, as I'd like it to be platform independant, but can anyone convince me otherwise? A good tutorial link for the language would be very helpful as well. I have past, non-gui experience with Java, and currently studying C in one of my courses, but I'm willing to learn anything. (Don't make me mention Visual Basic)  I'd appreciate any help on this.

I looked into python and qt, but python seemed a wee bit too slow.

I'm now doing C++/QT.

I suggest you check http://www.libsdl.org/ as for the language it's up to you.
(C for performance, python is also used  for games with sdl http://pygame.seul.org/ ....)
