no worries, if you have any trouble with C++ check the tutorials on that guys site too, theyre really good (well were for me anyway).

Good luck with the games!

Honestly, I know you're anxious to get into game development, we all were when we started out... but I really, really recommend you learn a lot more about C++ first, maybe find some more online tutorials, buy a new book, and perhaps even venture into other languages like Java before you tackle game development... You'll thank yourself later, because a lot of game development is very complicated stuff thats built on basics from a wide range of programming topics, so the more you know before you get into it, the less you'll tear your hair out.

Good luck :)
