programming how to's?
So i was thinking I would like to learn some basic programing skills...
I would like to learn something relatively easy that I can make the type of games you see on addictinggames.com.
So i was wondering what language should i start on?
I've looked at C++ and bought a beginners book but never really got into it.
Also if you have a link to a good free guide for the suggested language that would also be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
I remember reading a thread where someone posted this link -> cplusplus.com - The C++ Resources Network . I don't do any programing myself but, I was reminded of that link when I read this thread and thought I'd post it for you. I think it is online tutorials and info about said language.
Seeing that game development interests you, here is another post that might interest you as well -> http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...html#post51488
Have fun! :)
Most times you'll end up frusterated and not want to bother.
Creating a game takes a lot more time and learning in a languages than just C or C++
i would like to challenge myself and i think it would be pretty cool to go "yo go play this game tell me what you think" and its made by me lol
besides its summer now and i have nothing but time so i figured ill make it a little project of mine
Don't give up on your dream just because some random guy on the Internet tells you to. (An advise from another random guy on the Internet)
addictinggames.com is a flash game website. If you want a shortcut, you can start learning flash/actionscripts. If you want better basic (really want to be a programmer), then you can start from C++/Java/C#.
There seems to be a few books on Amazon on flash gaming: Amazon.ca: flash games
Start with something really simple, if you like it you can move on to something bigger.
But hey if you think you can do it all the best.
I don't think it's wrong for someone wanting to learn something.
But yes, if programming is really not your thing, you shouldn't force it. When I was still in the university, I've seen some classmates falling really behind in programming classes even after they force themselves to study hard. If it's not really in you, it's going to be very tough.
However, if you're artistic enough. You may still get away with it in Flash games, as it's still require a lot of graphics to do.
