    [LIVESTREAM] Training Stream - Tanks vs Zombies, Part 6- Dec. 6th - Live From Epic HQ

    Lauren and Richard are back, and so are the tanks, and their natural enemy, zombies! We'll be introducing the ability for tanks and zombies to die, and with it, some common game functionality like respawns, extra lives, and (maybe) scoring.

    We'll also be adding a few new sprites from's asset packs ( Download the original project ( ) and these new images, then make sure you have VS2015 (with C++ enabled!) and 4.14 installed, and you'll be set to follow along!

    Tuesday, December 6th @ 2:00PM ET [Countdown]

    Feel free to ask any questions on the topic in the thread below, and remember, while we try to give attention to all inquiries, it's not always possible to answer everyone's questions as they come up. This is especially true for off-topic requests, as it's rather likely that we don't have the appropriate person around to answer. Thanks for understanding!

    Update: Project files can be found here!

    Great news, looking forward to it! One suggestion/request: It would be cool if you guys could add links to the threads of previous parts to these posts, so this thread would contain links to parts 1-5. Makes life easier for lazy guys like me


      Second that.

      Links to these in the series should be added in this thread

      Here they are though:
      Part 1:
      Part 2:
      Part 3:
      Part 4: ???
      Part 5:

      Does anyone know where Part 4 is?

                  We do plan on continuing this series, and doing C++ series in general as we go forward. We may pause until GDC is over, but there's no certainty on a specific date that we'll get back to Tanks. I'm eager to get back to it, and I can tell you we have no plans to cancel the Tanks series at this point.


                    Thank, We need more C++ 2D mobile Training stream
