I got sidetracked with something else and havent touched anything programming related for a few weeks...
*bangs head against wall*
Can anyone recommend me some kind of supplement to increase concentration?
Oh before I lost interest though I did successfully go through an SDL tutorial . . at which point I decided my C++ is finally good enough to go for directX - I dont see the point in learning too much SDL as none of my game ideas really work in 2D..
So I've started on directX, I've just made my blank window display a blue background :O
The major point is it all makes sense to me now, whereas before it was just meaningless code.
Time to get serious now!
I'll be working through "Beginning game engine programming" - as i'd prefer a base-up knowledge of things.
So making games is a long way off for now . . .
I dunno .. maybe directX tetris and such . . but even that could wait until i've got a basic engine built. .
Anyway . . .. Lets see how long i last this time before i get distracted. .
