This is my first post on this site, so - Hello everyone!
I've been wondering about the past month where I should go in C++. I've been doing it for about a year now, and I need something new. I've gone through about 6 books on all the basics, and all the basic tutorials on this site too. I'm comfortable with pointers and classes, and what have you.
I've wanted to get into graphical game programming, but it seems lke everything I find is either the same stuff I've been doing for a year, (text based games) or it seems way out of my league. (DirectX specifically)
If you have recommendations on what to learn, I'd love to listen. Don't think I'm only stuck on game making either; I just want to get out of this console based C++ world!
Thanks for any help,
EDIT: I got Volume I and II of: Thinking in C++
It looks like there is a bunch in there I can learn, but I'm still stuck on what to learn for GUI's.
