Topics I've Started

KhanA exercises

19 December 2012 - 02:29 AM

is the completion of all khan exercises ( http://i46.tinypic.com/2cp5lqr.jpg ) a good enough indicator that
i know linear algebra, triginometry, geometry, etc enough for 3d game programming?
do the exercises not cover what is done in the videos?

im planning on reading (Mathematics for 3D Game Programming and Computer Graphics)
and or (3D Math Primer for Graphics and Game Development) both around 500 pages afterwords.

also reading a discrete mathematics book around 900 pages

khan exercises + 3d books + discrete math, for game programming = a good plan ?

save and read data from file

30 October 2012 - 09:20 PM

how do I store variables/data in a file, that
can be read later, for example a save file for a game

I can create, write, read from files using c,c++ & win32 but cant find how I would
simulate a config/save file

low level programming

21 September 2012 - 11:22 PM

I've learned C most of C++, some algorithms/Data structures, etc started learning win32 console systems programming, but been discouraged as i wont be able to look at the inner workings like I could with linux. I want to stick to a lower level, so im avoiding api wrappers like MFC, qt, etc

quote from john.c

"In fact, I think it would be an interesting environment for beginning programmers to learn on. I started programming on an Apple II a long time ago, when you could just do an “hgr” and start drawing to the screen, which was rewarding. For years, I’ve had misgivings about people learning programming on Win32 (unix / X would be even worse), where it takes a lot of arcane crap just to get to the point of drawing something on the screen and responding to input. I assume most beginners wind up with a lot of block copied code that they don’t really understand."

I want to evenutally learn both win32, and linux.
Should I learn something else before diving in? Would learning assembly first help?
should i just say fuq it and continue with win32?

any help appreciated

good code to read

25 July 2012 - 10:49 PM

When I find a good chess engine the code is always cluttered with the GUI, etc its using,

I just want to look at pure c++ code (console, ascii text)
I'm preferably looking for code that's for a chess game(with/or without AI), and a text RPG game

XoaX has a few samples of a chess and rpg text game but its not enough
