So i've decided to use SFML and i'm just trying to figure out its advantages and disadvantages...I've looked around and this is what i've got so far.


  • Cross Platform
  • OO Design
  • Simple and fast (subjective)

* Quite new

Any additional thoughts will again appreciated

Do you mean the Simple and Fast Multimedia Library (SFML)? First I've heard of it, but the best way to check out something like this is to do some prototyping with it and see if it works for you. Since it is open source, do report bugs or usability problems to the development group. Without the feedback of real users, they can't strive to improve it for the rest of the community.

The only disadvantage of SFML is not targeted iOS and Android yet.
