It''s tranditional to point beginners to this link which lists most of the frequently asked questions for people new to game development.

YOu can''t just magically acquire the knowledge to make games. You have to learn from somewhere- books being a good source.

Tell us how much you know about the process of making games. Do you know anything about programming?

Then it''s probably a good reason to start reading it?

You can try this online C++ tutorial.

http://cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/

You can get a free c++ compiler and IDE at www.bloodshed.net

I''m sure other can link you to better tutorials. But for now, read that, and start slow. You can''t make games on your own until you know the basics.

Hm, I was about to scream NOT VERSION 4, but, the tutorials pointed to are rather out dated - or at least they were the last time I checked.

Listen, tribal, the best thing you can do is get some programming experience before attempting C++ - C++ is a big, nasty language for beginners, so you should try out Python for a bit. It's a great language that's easy to grasp and the tutorials are a breeze.

Give it a shot, it'll give you understand what's going on.

Books are how most of the people on this site get their knowledge. Once you have this knowledge, fill in any gaps by asking on this forum. After filling in my gaps of knowledge by asking stupid questions, I know C/C++ extensivly, so if you ever learn those languages, or just need some help with the learning, e-mail me at Drakkcon@SoftHome.net
