Alright, hi everyone, this is my first post in this forums, so I'll introduce myself: My name is Salvador, I'm from Argentina and I'm studying Information Systems Eng., they teach us only Java but I'm learning C++ on my own. I want to work as a games developer, i like designing ad programming games, but I need some help to get started.
First of all, I downloaded Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012, is it a good IDE to work with? Does it use a good compiler or should I have some precautions when programming?
Secondly, Can you please recommend me some good C++ books? I have basic knowledge in C, and Java.
Third, what tools should I use to develop a simple game? How do I show graphics on screen, and how do I implement sounds?
Any piece of information will be really useful, thank you very much for your help, while I wait for some answers I'll research the forums deeper, I'm sure I'll find lots of useful stuff here!
Thank you very much!
