#5087219 C++ EXERCISE HELP (pancake challenge)

Posted by on 19 August 2013 - 12:54 AM

thanks for the help people, i too am baffled as to why this was down voted,  


just to mention im using vs 2010 and am teaching myself c++ through various books and websites as well as a  home study course, i think i understand the basics of debugging, using breakpoints etc but i didn't think that was where my problem came from, my problem was that my understanding of how to use various loops to my advantage was limited so the above section of code was a major help, all the extra comments and explanations were a massive help in understanding various aspects. 


i just want to say that this is not the complete exercise i still have a few other problems to solve and intentionally did not post them so i still had something to dosmile.png


and  due to the quality of help from the above code i am also researching string stream and vectors so i can apply them to my next piece of code as these seem like hugely valuable tools im also a little upset that someone would downvote something that was a huge help and not provide a reason for it.  dissecting the above code has helped me immensely in my studies and understanding

#5050667 C++ console games tutorials and thread pointers please

Posted by on 06 April 2013 - 03:11 PM

Hi for the last 3 months i have been learning to program, i have been learning c++, its addictive, im obviously new to all this so i spend most of my time yelling obscenities at my computer then grinning like an idiot when i realise its all because i missed a ";"


i would really like to make a simple 2d game and have seen various "pong", "tick tac toe" and other examples,


i would be greatful if anyone could point me in the direction of some solid tutorial examples or any threads that i may find useful to create any kind of moving game within the console window, and if you want to chuck in any suggestions ( constructive of course ) i would welcome them too, the only programs i have at the moment are visual C++2010 and the windows sdk 7.1, though im not to sure how to use it yet, thanks again for any help / advice you throw my way,   smile.png
