Hi, I''ve gone through C for Dummies Vol. 1, and I understand everything that was taught in the book. But now I''m needing more =D Whats a good book, that can teach me the basics of game creation in C++ (I know C++ is different than C, but ++ is just a superset to C (at least thats what I''ve been told)) I''m looking for a book can teach in 2d or 3d doesnt matter, I just want a point at which I can start from, preferably windows programming, since DOS isnt used any more =D Thanks in advance

Andre LaMothe has a new version of his famed(?) Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus that seems to be very popular around here.

I''ve got it on my shelf, haven''t had time to look through it yet, but it looks like one of the better books on the subject.
