    C#, Programs vs Gaming, What is it aimed twords?

    Just curious, not that i am a game maker nor desire too (but who doesent want to make a quick one right lol?), but i am curious as to what c# is ment to be applied twords.

    ie, like C++, can it do anything i want it to for the most part? It just has more bells and whistles for "streamlined" production?

    Or will games and junk soon be base coded in C#?
    (not taking into account the graphics end like OpenGL/DX ect., just coding in C++/C#)
    And if you dont think game makers will code them in C#, why is that so?

    Thanks to any replies!

    An Example of C# programming is Ultima Online

    I can scrape up some source for that if you like, but other than that, I'm not sure why they use that and not C++ :\

    k so in general theres no reason not to use C# for any application?

    I thought maybe C# made too many shortcuts for some things, thanks

    I can't say I know enough about C# to give you an accurate answer

    Hey Shamino, I thought Ultima Online was created in C++. Some third party Ultima Online clients were created in C# to create servers, not the actual game I believe. Besides, Ultima Online was created in like 1997, that was long before C# was created and distributed.

    First of all, there are no quick games, so if you want to make a quick one, your screwed. Second, DirectX works with any programming language that uses COM. It works with BASIC, C, C++, and if it uses COM even C#. I haven't written a line of code in C# but I program in C++ and DirectX and that is how it works. I am sure the if you can use DirectX with BASIC then you can use it with C#.
    Don't quote me on that... ...seriously
