I'm using Gametutorials.com to learn C++, and I am right now on the Fmod tutorial. The tutorial is nearly impossible to understand. Is there another tutorial on the net that does a simpler job in explaining it? (For that matter, is it even important to know how use Fmod?) Thanks, ~Dakar

well... FMOD can be very important. mod type files are really small and for "music only" they are perfect. (many new games use it)

however when you think its hard i maybe have a little help... wont know if it will actually help but i found it usefull

http://www.gamemaker.nl/resources/jbfmod.zip
http://www.gamemaker.nl/old/gmaker53.zip

this is a programm called gamemaker, and its aiming at people who really have never made a game (so its QUITE easy to learn)
the second download named jbfmod contains the FMOD file and a DLL that links to gamemaker. it has all the important variables in it for using FMOD

my point is: gamemaker makes experimentation with FMOD way easyier, and perhaps you get the point in using it.

i hope this is a bit of help, and if its not, sorry to have wasted your time

If you're just learning C++, then no FMod isn't that import. When you get to the point you want to include music in games it can be a very valuable tool. As for tutorials I'd recommend checking out CPlusPlus.com and the Language section of GameDev's Article & Resources. There many free tutorials an ebooks their such as "Thinking in C++ Vol 1&2" by Bruce Eckel.
