Yes, I am not too concerned about getting the prototype right away. I realize I will need quite a bit of extra money saved to hire artists to do the art/music and such. I'll practice the flowcharts to get an idea and get these books, and take my time to learn the C++. To be honest, it sure looks pretty damn complicated, but.... just as with everything of a different nature. Pretty much just like learning a new language!
Thanks for help, guys.
