What sort of graphics/art style are you thinking? What sort of resolution do they need to be?

First of all, thanks for responding.

They will probably be 64 X 64. I will attach an example so you can get a rough idea of the approximate size and scaling we are going for.

Great advice everyone.
I have succeeded in fixing that problem with your help.
But, I've created another minor problem in the process.
Now, it won't accept the first input selection from the
menu. However, if you try to enter it again, it does take
the second one and works fine from there on. I'm sure that
I can find that bug. I'll let you all know how it turns out
and post the updated code solution too. Thanks everyone.

*edit*

Ok, found it... I just changed the cin >> method to cin.get
which didn't work right. Thanks again for your help and here
is the update to the code:

That's a really good answer, thanks.
I was hoping to do a game entirely in C++, but it
looks like I will end up using something like Python
since I don't have any graphics library experience yet.
Actually, Game Maker is pretty promising for what I have in mind.

In Topic: Best Beginner C++ Game Programming Book?

20 September 2008 - 03:10 PM

I have 2 good C++ books that I can recommend.

C++ Primer plus (5th ed.) Stephen Prata
http://www.amazon.com/Primer-Plus-5th-Stephen-Prata/dp/0672326973/ref=pd_sim_b_2

and

Beginning C ++ Through Game Programming, (2nd ed.) Michael Dawson
http://www.amazon.com/Beginning-Through-Game-Programming-Second/dp/1598633600/ref=pd_bxgy_b_text_b

They have both taught me a lot about C++ and they were reasonably priced.
The Beginning C++ through game programming book seems to be what you are looking for. However,
the primer plus book is more comprehensive and will provide you with more knowledge in C++. I read them both.

In Topic: Want to be game dev - need advice about school choices

I have taken 5 classes from DeVry's online Game and Simulation degree program. If you have any questions about it, I can probably answer them.
