Hey, I've been looking for QUITE a while on google and such, but nothing really explains 3d game creating. I've been modeling like crazy and I have a level with characters ready, but all the tutorials I found are those "Hello worlds." Now I would think I past that.
So I would like to know how to get started. What complier, header, and other tools are the best (free or cheap) for creating high-res 3d FPS/3rd person adventure game?
P.S. not those weird games that have a foot long tecture stretched out.I mean high quality (like those early builds of halo when it was for mac) and interactive stuff like weapons and vehicles.
