LOL, I have read a ton of tuts. well ok 1-17 about. But in my opinion the tuts arn't the best sometimes. Oh and I don't have a local library around my area. My city pop is arund 3k lol. And I guess I am ruching this. But I sorta needed this for my game.
Rune hunter, you are so intent on brute forcing your way through C++, are you sure, you don't just wanna get a book from your local libray or at least a tutorial?
You seem to be very intelligent to grasp things and your questions are as well. I have no doubt if you gave a decent tutorial a chance you would be done it in no time and your questions would be a little more advanced as well as your code - in relation to how long it took you to learn it that is.
Oh well, to each his own.
