    GameDev

    I went to this site and it tells you absolutely nothing on how to create games. Why do they say that they do?

    you've obviously not looked hard enough.

    try:

    nehe.gamedev.net
    nexe.gamedev.net
    Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum sonatur.
    Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound.

    Is there any that are based solely on text based games? I really just want to write a mud or something. If you know of any tutorials on that or source codes that I could edit to use and stuff, please show me the URL .

    I'm not just talking about google. Look at the top right corner of this web page. There's a button that reads "search". You can search the boards for previous posts about a given subject, etc.

    Smokeybear, you're not going to make games...well at least not yet.

    Else where I read that you haven't every programmed, and you are just looking to make games. I'm sorry to tell you this, but it's not that easy. You're going to have to spend time learning a language (appearantly for you it's C++) before you are going to be able to create games. That's reality.

    I would suggest buying a programming book to learn off of rather than using tutorials to learn. If you don't want to buy a book, for one reason or another, then you could use the tutorials on this site to learn C++. Before you are going to be able to create a game you are going to have to UNDERSTAND a good portion of the C++ tutorials on this site.

    Btw, if you're wanting to have graphics in your games right away, you're a ways off being able to use graphics. Your best bet would be to forget about those for a while.

    Good luck.

    I don't want a graphics game. Just a text based one I thought I would be able to manage one after like 5 minutes of regular programming.

    There's still a lot more to game programming than just graphics.

    If only that were the case! My current game project would have been finished 2 months ago, instead of a year and a half from now.

    Age has nothing to do with knowledge... mostly

    [edit]
    Perhaps I should say intelligence instead. Elder people seem to be more intelligent than younger cause they have more experience.

    Aren't knowledge and intelligence the same thing ?

    knowledge is how much you know (facts)
    intelligence is how well you think (interpretation)

    then there's also wisdom, which comes partly from intelligence.

    Wisdom is a balanced mixture of knowledge, intelligence and experience.
