Game programming ........ Where is good place to start?
I originally posted this in the General Forum my mistake.
I use to love programming on my old Commodore Vic-20/64/128. I even did some assembly programming on those old jewels
I've been an avid computer gamer since I can remember. The wife tends to dislike that fact on occasion I'm really considering the possibility of learning to game program - I know, I know...everyone does. I know the game programming field is pretty tight (from what I understand). But, nevertheless, I would like to learn it - even if its just a hobby.
I am currently transferring to the UNT (University of North Texas) to get my BS in CS. They have several game programming classes I can take for my upper level requirements.
Other than taking the classes at the university, where would be a good place to start. I took an Intro to C++ course a couple years back. I figure I'll have to go review that and get an intermediate book before I even start to think about programming in DirectX, etc. Right?
Any suggestions for a newb wannabe would be much appreciated.
