Hi, I''m 13 years old, i''ve been programming for about 1 month in C++(enough time to learn dos programming(no win32 yet))I have dev-C++ and I''m going to try to get msvc .net soon. I learn really fast, I hate school because it''s so freakin easy! and I can''t take a programming course until next year and those will probly be freakin easy(I''m skipping one), and I have and am ready to spend a lot of free time on programming. I am looking for someone(can be another newb so we can help eachother but you must be dedicated to programming) to contact with through e-mail, aim(my sn is stud7899), ect. about C++, also: what software/hardware do I need to get for game programming(2d/3d animation, sound, anything)?

Hey man, go for it! Don''t worry, programming is not too hard. An important piece of hardware you may need eventually is a good 3D card. Software: MSPaint! Just kidding - you might want to get some kind of 3D modeller eventually when you start doing that kind of stuff. If you''re learning Win32, remember that it is a bit different from DOS - that is, instead of programming linearly you program with a message loop and all that. I''m sure you''ll figure it out. Good luck!

if there one piece of advice i would give is to let people know that you don''t know something. Seriously, when you tell people you don''t know they usually want to tell you. If you tell them you already know it then why would they. Not that you would do this. It is just something that a lot of newbie game programmers do trying to be part of the crowd or something like that. As far as dev-c++ be careful. I use it and love it but know that there are a couple of quirks that can be a pain. Especially if you want to do directx as opposed to openGL. Anyhow i''ve already written way to much. AOL/Yahoo messenger = padlamoij...for any questions about dev-c++.

Like, you don''t get to shoot anyone. And where are all the nude women!

Hey. I''m 17 here and have a hard time to stay motivated whenever i try to learn C++. The reason for this is because i am trying to learn it on my own but with no one else doing it with me its just hard to stay motivated. Maybe it would be possible to start some type of group? Just an idea, if anyone is interested e-mail me at falkenbergs@telusplanet.net or my icq # 25354395. BTW i''ve learnt Basic, Visual basic and a fair amount of Perl in the past just so you know about what level i''m on. Havn''t really learnt any C++ except for a few chapters in tutorials.

Thanks,
Joel Falkenberg
