#4984558 [For a Beginner] C++ express 2010 or C++ express 2012?

Posted by KernalPanic on 27 September 2012 - 07:47 PM

Well after thinking it over I have decided I will go along with C#. As for the matter of IED's I am just going to use the default one.

Don't bother with DRM it will be pirated no matter what you do.

Look guys (or girls) I don't know much of anything regarding programming (as I stated before) however what I do know is....

*C++ is the standard however it has a very steep learning curb (even worse for me since I'm a beginner)
*I had Java in the back of my mind for a while but I read (from other forums so don't take this as a solid point) that Java is rather dated

Since I was not so specific in my OP apparently let me ask a few other questions...

*What exactly is a library and how do I apply it into my programming?
*What is an engine? (I see on various games that it is powered by so and so's engine example - from what I understand it basically runs the code??)

Please stop arguing... because a lot of what I've read has gone over my head (obviously you know more than I on the matter)

For a while I've been wanting to jump into programming but I've always put it off. I want to eventually make a first person horror game - but that is a huge goal. I don't have a very good misunderstanding of engines or any of that... yet. However now I am going to start but naturally I have a big question that a more experience person can probably answer...

*Should I start learning with C++ express 2010 or C++ express 2012? (or something else)
*Any other general advice?


I removed the poll. Please see the FAQ. -- jpetrie
