    Well don't get ahead of yourself. If you want to make games you need to learn the basics first, then move onto graphics stuff. Before you move on make sure you understand it so you don't just copy and paste stuff. Have you read all the tutorials on this site? What kind of games are you aiming for? What kind of tutorials? I personally have never seen a "movies that explain's c++" so don't get your hopes up.

    This is the only video I know of relating to C++.

    That said, as jmd15, read and work through tutorials. There are plenty of books out there that'll help you learn C++ (keep in mind, not all programming books are created equal). You can do a search on this board for books, it comes up fairly often.

    Cheers

    When following that link to the video be prepared for........"Pointer Fun". I found Binky kind of disturbing, but I only watched the 10 second preview. Watch at your own risk lol.

    Learning C++

    In order to learn how to program in any language, it is important to thoroughly learn the foundations. To that end, I recommend using a good thorough book. Once you do that, you will have the foundation necessary to make your programming goals come true. I personally recommend the C++ How To Program book. That, in my opinion, is one of the best learning books for C++ - period!

    For graphics and such for games, might I suggest using something like Maya 7? Possibly LightWave 8.2 or something of the sort? Use a game engine for the game. You will need C++, but a little bit of the game would be pre-written, so you wouldn't have to work QUIET as much. But then again, I haven't worked with the Unreal Engine, Crystal Space, etc etc. So everything I just said might not be entirely true.
