Topics I've Started

Where can I start?

15 July 2012 - 12:48 PM

Hello. I am new to these forums and kinda new to game development. I know the basics of C++ and I want to move on. Some people have told me that I have to pick a graphics library in order to continue, so I picked OpenGL. I have searched for tutorials and I have learned the basics, but the problem is that I am looking for tutorials/books to help me make a basic game. So, do you know any good books or tutorials that can help you make a basic game? If I learn to program a basic game, then what should I do? Do I need to go to a special school or something in order to continue? Or there are more books and tutorials?

Thanks, D4RknEZz

Error In Lesson 1

21 May 2012 - 11:37 AM

Hello. I followed exactly the tutorial and copied the code into my Visual C++ 2010 Express Compiler. But when I run it it gives me the error: "There are some build errors. Would you like to continue and run the last succesful build?"
Check out the Output:

Any idea how to fix it? I followed some other OpenGL Tutorials in videos, but they worked fine.
