I haven't done one yet (if ever), but you can get some sample code here, mostly to do with collision detection and physics.

FPS isn't harder than say, 3rd persone shooters (tomb raider, jak and dexter, metal gear solid). In fact, it's easier.

as far as physics is concerned, you'll be in a world of pain. Keep it simple or use a 3rd party physics engine (novodex, newton, tokamak, ode, in order of preference).

i am using directx9 not opengl


The code for collision detection isn't in opengl, nor it will be in directx.
Look at the damn samples! :)

You should be able to just do it, otherwise your not ready to undertake the project.

here is a link to my demo My FPS Demo.

It took me some time to write the code, but I bought an excellent book that helped me through it, here is a link to the book FPS programming

Anyway I hope this helps.

i might as well take this opportunity to see how mine stacks up....
not much of a game yet, just a map editor/viewer

http://people.ucsc.edu/~asue/lander/portal_AdrianSue.zip

hit 'o' as soon as it starts up to load the default map
wasd and arrow keys to move camera around
try not to hit any other keys than that at first, since this is basically my map editor and the controls are....unintuitive

good start? bad?

I'm impress, the controls aren't bad actually I was thinking of something similar except I'm just going to get rid of the changing the view with the keyboard and leave that to the mouse.

If its of any interest, Advanced Animation with DirectX (Jim Adams) shows you how to do lip-syncronised speech, time based animation, ragdoll physics, etc.

Damn, I love that book.
