Topics I've Started

Kinda lost on where to start

29 September 2013 - 01:34 PM

I love how I have this idea for a RPG game I want to make but I don’t know where to start. I don’t know a thing about programming and don’t know which language I want to learn…Well I kinda do…either C++ or C# I don’t know, which should I do? 

Oh and other then that I have no story…kinda stuck with that. And I need some more characters, weapons, magick, and stuff. But that'ds slowly coming along as I think of stuff.

But hey recommend me some good programming books, and any advice would be great.


C++, C#, or something else? Also some other questions

So I am new to programing and I would like to learn how to make my own game. But I am not sure what language to start with. What language do you suggest a total beginner to start with? Also which do you find easier to work with when trying to make a 3D game, Unity3D or XNA?

Thanks for the help, Kahroo

Total Beginner here. Have a few questions

02 October 2010 - 06:30 AM

Hi, what's up? Humans have named me Steve. I am very interested in programing/designing games. But I have no experience in programming at all. I was going to go to my library today and pick up a book on C/C++. I have also heard of a progam called XNA and how it uses C# which is sort of like C/C++, and I hear that it is much easier to make PC games with it. Is this true? As for now I am only looking to make PC games. Maybe later I might start work on a console game. But for now PC game making is what I want to learn.

I have also looking to go to college to help me learn more and for a future job. I was thinking about going to my community college for either Computer Science, or Game Development then transfer to a 4 year college. But what I was wondering was should I go for Computer Science, then transfer to say Digipen for a Game Designing Degree? Does that sound better then just going to community college for Game Designing then transfer to Digipen for Game Designing?

And does anyone know any good books I should pick up? I was looking at the Beginner C/C++ for Dummies book. Is that one good or should I stay away from it and try something else?

And I know that this field of work is hard and takes a lot of practice and time to master. And I am willing to do what I can to do this. And I thank you for helping me with my questions.
