Anyone ever heard of this or used it? I'm thinking of buying it. I know a bit of c++, im not a pro or anything. I also have this book called deitel and deitel. Would this game programming starter kit (macmillan software) be good for me? Do I have to be a c++ pro to use it? It says it comes with a BIG book on game programming, microsoft visual c++ (i have already), shadow real 3d something, genesis engine something, and direct x 7.0 SDK something. Does it sound any good? On the box it says "everything you need to program your own games". Im basically wondering if it sounds any good. and 2, if i need to be a c++ pro to use it. I'm a good thinker. I wrote a tic tac toe game where you can play the computer or play another human.
