When I try to compile I always get an error. I'm using Visual C++ .NET


What error (I'm going away for 10 days so can't help you :( ) ?

Posting the errors will let others help.

Ok,
Now that your are learning you have just taken the biggest step and what I think is the hardest step in game developing. That is.....Learning the language. I am learning c++ also, but just to tell you this if you get frustrated then just take time away from it. Don't take a big bite into it at one time. Also, when you get done with a section create some programs that use stuff in that section and other sections you have learned. Try different ways in writing the code so you can see the command errors. Also, if you get an error message then just look at the simple stuff. Stuff that you just know you did right but did wrong. Everytime I have tried to find the errors in a program I have written it has been easy errors.

Oh yeah most important. Have fun!

Hehe, trust me, learning the language is probably the easiest part...
[wink]

But still, it's a good start. :D
And as Chad Smith said, take the time to experiment with what you've learned, and make sure to read the errors you get when you try to compile, and try to make sense of them. It takes a lot of patience to figure out just what you did wrong, but there's just not much of an alternative... ;)

Good luck with it [wink]
