VB.net and gaming

P: n/a

hello

(I asked this earlier out of curiosity but i wasnt specific enough and the
thread is 3 pages away)

Can you do decent games in VB.net compared to C++ .
In VB.net I believe you can integrate C++ as well because of the .NET
architecture

What sort of games you ask well what about Baldurs Gate RPG, Quake, Age of
Empire, 3D games. Does VB.net lack graphics capability or speed compared to
C++.

Hi

To use a .net based your going to use the manaaged
version of DirectX 9.

I doubt major software will adopt managed dx9 to build
there games, they will standard C++ .

And if read the numerous book on game programming most of
the sample code in C++ not vb.

Regards
Jorge
