I'm just beginning to learn SCI, and I'm not really sure what the difference is between SCI and AGI...Is one better or more advanced, and therefore more complicated? It seems to me, having looked at games made in both languages, that they both produce the same outcome. Should I learn AGI before SCI, or vice-versa, or are they relatively the same language?|

Look at the topic AGI / SCI Messageboard FAQ.

I don't know a lot of SCI, but I think AGI is a lot more easy to learn then SCI... It's less complicated. But it may depend on your programming skills. Do you know how to program (C or Java?)?
I'm not even interessed in making games with SCI, because I love AGI! So compare the games made in AGI or in SCI and see what games y
I know some C, but i haven't used it in about a year...I could most likely re-learn it in a few days, though. But i don't know a lick of java.|
And thanks for the direction :)
You don't have to know C or Java, it's just that AGI uses the same statements, words, symbols and all the rest, how-do-call-that-stuff...|
|Joe||I'd recommend learning SCI first. But, if you want, you can learn AGI first. I don't want to make you do anything you don't want to do.|
Well, I think I'm learning SCI, solely because the only AGI studio I can find is on fileplanet, and I <i>hate</i> fileplanet. It doesn't seem like it'll be *too* difficult to learn, but I suppose time shall tell.|
|Joel||go to www.nailhead.org/agistudio for the latest version of AGI Studio, not stored on fileplanet.|
www.agidev.com no fileplanet.|
|Grover||ah, cool...thanks guys :)|
|mr-t||SCI makes alot more sense to me.|
It isn't which is better, but rather what you are trying to do...|
AGI is a good learning programming language, it is easy to learn and great to help out in your future programming, SCI on the other hand is very advanced and you could make just about anything with it... it uses oop(object orientated programming) which makes it very advanced. SCI could make just about any game/program you could think of(to some extent anyway.)
if i were you, i would start off with agi for 2 reasons. its easier to start with if it is one of your first languages. and i like agi games better than sci.|
on the other hand, if you know C, you may want to do SCI. Why? because there is not as many SCI games, and we need more SCI programmers. Thats whay i think.
im not telling you what to do. you do what you want. im just saying this in my opinion.
Well, I know C and I found AGI easier to do than SCI, but hey, everyone's different, right?
Just my 2 cents.
I have no idea how the c works but I made an sci game.
I just followed the tutorials and asked questions to Brian Provinciano.
|Joey||oh sorry. guess i got my info wrong. i saw a thread that sci was like C. sorry for any wrong information.|
