Do what Ben Franklin did. Go to sleep, you insomniac, with a spoon in your hand. If you feel something really cold on your genitalia then you''ll be unconsciously exited and will have remembered what you''ve been pondering about and the solution that you ''dreamed'' about.

What more do i need to do game like "DOOM"

First of all, visit the "For Beginner" section of this site. Second, learn how to use the site. There is a little thing called search. Use it, this topic has been answered more than once. Third, start by making a simple game like tetris or pacman an then once you''ve done that, do it again and again until you get confortable with game programming, then move on to some more complex stuff like RPGs and then to 3D( first person, etc ) games. You can''t start game programming by saying you want to make a game like doom. You will just fail and get annoyed at programming. Set some real goals and then try to move on.

Yes, this post is harsh and it is intended to be. This post should have been in the for beginners forum. Not the game programming forum. Learn to use the site...

Tough, but fair. Cyberdrek - well spoken.

The confusion lies in the fact that "For Beginners" isn''t right in front of their eyes. It was a mistake on the forum designer''s part to assume a beginner would look down far enough to see that, or read any documentation on the forum before posting.

(My comment about it being the forum designer''s fault is sarcastic)
