sorry - if it seems impatient but i''ve been studying c++ doing some egs here and there - fairly understand most of it. Learning mirc in the past as helped abit. But i was wondering how long it took you''ll to make your 1st game using C++ - from when you starting learning the language. cheers Dale

I never wrote much games. I mostly developed tools and applications, using different programming languages such as Visual Basic, C++, Pascal, etc.

If you think you fairly understand it, see if you understand templating, pointers, function pointers, functors, polymorphism, etc.

I don''t know much C++, but I have done some "games" in VB... but how do you define a game?? Minesweeper is as much a game as Quake..though it involves considerably less work. I would suggest you start out with the smaller things, like pong and snake, then try to tackle the bigger ones.

(still working on the little things myself....)
