    direction..?

    Hey... Im a newb to programming (c++)I wanted to know what direction I should be going in. Im experienced with HTML and some C, C++ but not much.

    I would like to create games but I want to know some things...


    What should I do before I get into games to get me familiar with the code?

    Should I go through the tutorials on this page and on other pages and whatnot?

    what else can I do???

    thanx, your input is apreciated.

    you should do some tutorials to get a feel to the language, and basically know what this stuff is:

    -variable
    -array
    -structure
    -function
    -loops (for,do,while,etc)

    and check out other ppls games and try to learn from them and dont forget to experiment with the code, take it apart and rewrite some parts of it (with the permision of the person who coded it). look back in this forum you will find LOTS of games and their codes. and finally dont forget to have fun!
