I basically want to know at what point I can start coding any kind of video game in C++ (as far as knowledge goes... should I read a book on game programming[any recommendations?]).
I am currently reading 'C how to program' By Deitel which has a large section on c++ at the back. Would that be sufficient knowledge to start programming games?
Amazon.com: C: How to Program (6th Edition) eBook: Harvey M. Deitel, Paul Deitel: Kindle Store
My ultimate goal is to program MMOs. I know some C and slim to none C++, I just want to be pointed in a direction guys.
