ok. well hi ppl. I''ve been working on a game for a few months now and a bit of work has been done. Menu art, fmv sequences, audio n stuff and the characters n buildings are underway too. but i don''t have a clue how i should go about programming the game. can any of u guys help? what programs should i use? which would be the best language to use? bearing in mind it would be completed for late 2004.

Visual C++ 6 ?! Bit expensive for a ''first game'', isn''t it? (Well, as long as you don''t download a warez version...)
I''d propose Dev-C++, for it is free, quite easy to use, uses gcc...

And, well, yes, read the "start here" stuff on gamedev.

Or if you don''t want to learn c++. You can use these game developement packages.

http://www.darkbasic.com

You still have to learn a language specific to each package but there pretty easy and you can learn them easily even if you have no programming experiance.

Since you don''t have any programming experience whatsoever my advice to you is to completely forget about making this game for at least a few months, start reading a programming book (I recommend you learn C++), make a few small games, and then after that you MIGHT be ready to make this game.

Your project sounds incredibly backwards. You have all the art, movies, and sound done, now you just need to learn how to program. Haha, that makes me giggle



"With my feet upon the ground I lose myself between the sounds and open wide to suck it in, I feel it move across my skin. I''m reaching up and reaching out. I''m reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me, what ever will bewilder me. And following our will and wind we may just go where no one''s been. We''ll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one''s been." - Maynard James Keenan
