I am Timo, a small programmer. have been working in Visual basic for about 4 years now, and have decided to work with C++, because VB has a lot of limitations. now i have downloaded the Crystal Space engine, have installed it, read the documentation files, searched for tools, searched these forums, in short: did everything i could. now, the iead popped up to ask you friendly people to help me with sorting out the files. is there any basic file of making a game in the CS engine? or are there intro files to look at? any help would be appreciated :) i am using windows XP, the latest non-CVS version of CS, and visual C++ 6.0..

By the sound of it, your just learning C++
if your just learning C++ it would most likey be best to get some basic C++ programing experiance before trying to compile somebody elses code. theres often alot of errors that will seem meaningless unless you have delt with them yourself, and in such a complex codebase you won't understand whats going on.
I tryed it myself a few times before I had a good understanding of C++ and ended up with just a big mess. theres alot of 'new' consepts in C++ that are not in VB.

PS: Congrats on switching to C++, while it will take longer to learn, you will find yourself to soon like it.

First of all, i am a beginner yes :) but my way of learning is to look at a rather build-up commented piece of source code, and then try to understand all the commands, and make some small changes. learning by errors is the best way for me.. but anyway, i must have overseen somethig yesterday as i am finding a lot of usefull recourses now. Thanks a lot, i'm sure i will succeed in my mission :)
