Familiarize yourself with the details added to the code, especially the variable names.
- [Instructor] Hi and welcome to the next section…of the course,…Layering Views and Implementing the HUD.…In the previous section,…we added bullets and pickups to the game…and also saw objects' interaction…by detecting their collision.…In this section,…we will be adding SFML text objects…and manipulate them,…and also adding the text to the game.…Then we will generate a second view instance and a HUD.…We now move on to the first video of this section,…adding all the text and HUD objects.…In this video,…we will add the extra include directive…and create another view object for screen resolution,…and finally,…we will create the effect…of allowing the game world to scroll.…
We will be manipulating a few strings in this section.…This is so we can format the HUD…and the level up screen.…Add the extra include directive highlighted here…so we can make some sstream objects to achieve this.…Next add this rather lengthy code.…To help identify where you should add the code,…the new code is highlighted,…and this code ends just above our main game loop code.…
