Topics I've Started

Looking for a small group of people (not sure where to post this)

19 April 2014 - 02:49 AM

Hey I am looking for a group of people completely brand new to the world of programming, and wanted to learn together and be each other out for it be through Skype or whatever I'm looking for people who want to start learning c++ right from scratch, if your interested please send me a pm or you email me at l2ob122@hotmail.com

I think this could be a good way to keep people motivated and make some friends in the process

Thank you

I am looking for some input on a few beginner java books people would recommend on both general programming and game programming.


General Programming/Game Programming help

19 June 2013 - 07:31 PM

Alright first off i have no prior experiance with programming so its a beginner question.


I am looking into getting into programming and have started learning some C++ but i have found it to be really difficult to get into it.



I have heard alot of people say that its always a good thing to pick up an easier language to learn at first and then go back to c++ at a later time.


Now my question is what language would be a suitable beginner type langauge that can still make games and would also be good to use in a general progam setting, as well as be good to know for the future.



Annoying Visual Studio problem

13 June 2013 - 08:46 AM

Sometimes this doesn't happen then outta nowhere it will.

When I want to edit something a little black box comes up and it won't just allow me to be edit just a letter it continues to over write everything on that line, it doesn't happen all the time but after a while it will constantly happen.

Is there a feature to turn this off?

very basic question

10 June 2013 - 11:18 PM

I am just doing something from a book that asks me to type something in but anytime i type in the number and click enter the program just ends

example when it asks how much fuel i type in 100 then it just ends it.




//Game Stats
// Demonstrates declaring and initializing variables

using namespace std;

int main()
    int score;
    double distance;
    char playAgain;
    bool shieldsUp;

    short lives , aliensKilled;

    score = 0;
    distance = 1200.76;
    playAgain = ' y ' ;
    shieldsUp = true;
    lives = 3;
    aliensKilled = 10;

    double engineTemp = 6572.89;

    cout << "\nscore: "  << score << endl;
    cout << "distance: " << distance << endl;
    cout << "playAgain: " << playAgain << endl;
    //skipping shieldsUp since you don't generally print Boolean values
    cout << "lives: "    << lives << endl;
    cout << "aliensKilled: " << aliensKilled << endl;
    cout << "engineTemp: "  << engineTemp << endl;

    int fuel;
    cout << "\nHow much fuel? ";
    cin >> fuel;
    cout << " fuel: " << fuel << endl;

    typedef unsigned short int ushort;
    ushort bonus = 10;
    cout << "\nbonus: " << bonus << endl;

    return 0;
