So,I'm new to creating/developing games but I always wanted to create a game so this is the kind of game I want to create: http://armorgames.com/play/12275/raze-2 something similar to that but i will add/change a few things like:

1. Different storyline

2. Different characters

3. More weapons

4. New/more maps

5. More harder AI

 But there's many things stopping me from creating/developing a game,like

I'm COMPLETELY NEW in this kind of things.

I don't know how to create a script codes

I don't know how to create an AI

Welcome to the wonderful journey on how to make a video game. You might find this is totally your thing and go on with it, you might find it's not your thing and abandon it completely and just keep playing them. Only one way to find out however!

 

Getting to this site, you took the first step to a network of knowledge passed on to you by the lovely people here. Help in here doesn't come for free though, the currency here is mostly effort and the more you spend, the more likely you will get bang for your buck!

 

The best thing about effort, is that for a lot of "beginner" questions, you can spend the majority on yourself by searching through the many similar questions to your own on this forum, read the stickies and faqs that were meant for people with the "standard" beginner questions, just like you!

 

With this little bit of text, I gave you some effort, now go forth young grasshopper, go forth and feed your mind by spending this effort I just gave you!

 

Because I am such a nice person, I will also give you some general advice that will help you on your journey:

  • Posting a topic with the title "HELP!" in full caps will not do you much good.
  • Your question is likely asked before, here or elsewhere. Learning how to search for something is an essential skill! 
  • You will be overwhelmed with all the new stuff.
  • Start small to gain some knowledge.
  • Don't give up!
  • Have fun in what you're doing!

Firstly, do you know a programming language? You can't just jump in to develop the next Raze without some programming experience. But if you want to learn programming and how to make a game both at the same time I recommend c++ and sfml. There are a plenty of tutorials on youtube about how to start. If you don't want to learn programming or c++ seems too hard for start. Pick up Game Maker, RPG maker, or something else, make few small games, learn BASICS of programming and then jump to c++ or c#.

Ok I'm gonna start making something small But I have another question: I have created a simple map(for a simple game) but I'm having trouble with paths,should i place paths all-over the map for just 1 AI player to follow? and can i make 1 AI player follow 2 paths(after 1 path then the AI follows a new one) ? AND how do I make an AI player shoot an enemy player?( example: Player 1 sees Player 2 then Player 1 shoot Player 2 then Player 2 takes cover and counter-attacks)how do i make the AI do those things?(shooting,taking-cover,retreating,attacking etc.)

* This isnt a duplicate of my previous answer, it is the answer.

 

No one here knows 

 

a. What the "map" is

b. What software youre using

c. What a 'path' with respect to a. and b. is

d. Your skill level.

 

Start with hello world, then work your way up.

Welcome back!

 

It seems you have started with your first steps on game development, but instead of the first step, you decided to take a leap into the darkness. It will certainly take you somewhere, but the problem with leaping into the darkness is that you will never know where and you will likely get lost and once you are lost, it's very likely you will not have fun doing what you want to do. So take that leap back and let's start with the basics shall we?

 

You see, stepping in the dark is a somewhat foolish thing to do, it might not even be a good thing to take a just a little step, because that would imply doing something while still not being able to see what's ahead of you. How about making a torch first? When you got this torch lit up, you can see ahead of you and the path you can take will be much clearer!

 

To put it more in perspective, A.I. programming might not be the best thing to start with if you are new to programming. It is likely best to start with something smaller. D4n1 already guided you in the right direction, start off with making a Hello World. It's not as exciting as making something game related, but it helps getting perspective on your tools. With the link d4n1 gave, with regard to your second question, take a look at the Asking Questions section so next time, people can help you out more properly!

 

Good luck!

This is more a comment than an answer to your question, but that little game is addictive as hell! LOL
