    Thanks Will.
    I am interested in developing for Symbian and Android.
    I have a client who needs an application on their phones with Symbian (Nokia). It is not that important, but it is necessary to do it.
    What do you recommend for developing mobile applications?
    Parallel Java with Netbeans I am studying, do you think I'm right?
    Oxygene and Free Pascal are recommended for development in Symbian and Android?

    Santiago.

    Well I can't tell you what is right or wrong for other options. That is on you and the resukting app you make for the device you are working on. If it works and it runs well for what you are doing, then it's probably a good enough solution until you can no longer make your apps do what you need to do. That's where you go find something better.

    Well for Android, Oxygene for Java and Free Pascal definitely. As far as Symbian, I couldn't tell you. It's not as popular and thee isn't much talk here about it. The big deal for Android is of course the phones and new tablets and Free Pascal has been made to create native applications, where as Oxygene for Java is a new commercial product that will allow you to make Object Pascal apps that will compile to native Java byte code, which will work quite well on Android devices.

    I'm an iOS fan myself, but there are others who could guide you with Free Pascal. Also you can get lots of great information about Android from RemObjects. I'd personally love to see people making games with RemObject's stuff, but it's up to you to choose what is best for you to use.

    Read more about both at:

    Hello

    I'm not a game developer, but interested in graphics programming with Pascal,
    at this moment I'm interested if the Phenomenon development is planned to
    continue, I believe software rendering has unlimited potential because it can be
    parallelised by SSE, CPU threads and OpenCL.

    Hi pixelwriter. Welcome to PGD!

    Game development and graphics programming are close cousins in the community so don't fear to post some of your creations or topics here on the site. I'd love to hear more graphics trick and techniques topics on the site myself.

    You are now activated as a regular member of the site so post away!

    Hello!

    Hi! I'm new here lol.

    I've been programming in Delphi/pascal for 4 years now and I want to improve my knowledge of Delphi from what I've learned in high school.

    I'm currently learning Windows API programming with Delphi and after that I'm going to try OpenGL and communication programming.

    And I'm starting my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science this year.

    Welcome to PGD Northowl! You are now un-moderated and free to post anywhere on the site.

    There are some great places to start to learn different APIs including all kinds of OpenGL stuff.

    Suggestion: Have a read through some older posts (try a search) and feel free to create a new thread if you'd like to get feedback on a project you are working on or just want to show it off.

    Hi!

    Hi all! I am new. I made a basic 3d engine (just a rotating 3d wireframe cube) in borland pascal, 1992 compiler (!), use the graph unit for pixel on/off, and run through dosbox! I recently switched to delphi7 to make it a real app, and not an emulated one!

    Welcome vampm! Sorry I forgot to actually un-moderate you from your PM. Forgive me if you will, at least you know for sure that I too am human. You are un-moderated now!

    Looks like you've had quite the historical experience with Pascal. Glad to see you are updating. Delphi 7 however is still quite old, you may have to upgrade soon to keep up with current platforms. Don't worry though there are many options these days free and paid. There is a new version of Delphi called Starter Edition that will allow you to get the latest for a much lower cost than previously only offered.

    What types of game programming were you interested in starting?

    Thats ok WILL, no problem!!! Actually I used borland, because thats what I learned @ 2004-5 at school. I loved its simple IDE environment, thats a very important thing in order to program more comfortable. Also I used it because of my limited knowledge. I dont like the "new" trends of microsoft (thats a whole discussion, but whatever..) so I found delphi-7, and since I know some pascal, I can move easier.

    here is the real mode in dosbox!!!

    For start I just want to do graphics only. I dont know if I this engine is going to be suitable for games. This just for fun!!! But I would like to make something like an simple rpg, with anime-like characters.
