hi, i am new to the game industry and game programing but i know basics. I have read the get started page and it was very helpful, but i just had one question. What game engin should i use? I was planing to use Dark basics but didn't know wat eles i should get with it. So if some 1 can be so kind to tell me wat to get with dark basics or a game ening that allows u to make a rpg I would be gratful. -TgAmE-/~TJ~

Welcome to gamedev!,

Firstly i wouldn't expect you to be able to jump straight into a game engine and make an RPG straight up. I would suggest reading up on the fundamentals such as a core language like C++ and then maybe how one of the graphics API that you want to get to know works.

It would also be important for you to read into some common scripting mechanisms. This is all in aid of you beginning to understand the tools you would be using when making use of a full engine to make an rpg.

So i would check out the For Beginner section and google on some of these keywords and get up to scratch on the documentation:

- OpenGL
- DirectX - both graphics APIs
- Python
- game architecture and the type
- C++
- game engines architecture and the like.

I hope all this helps,

ace

Be sure not to rule out the possibility of using C# or Visual Basic .NET. C# is a fantastic language and quite easy to learn.

My recommendation would be to choose a language and put focus on it. Once you learn programming concepts, it becomes easy to learn any programming language. From there, you can look towards graphic APIs like SDL or Allegro, followed by OpenGL and DirectX. But keep your goals set and keep an easy path for learning (Tic Tac Toe -> Text-Based RPG -> Pong -> Breakout -> *). Make at least five simple games before moving onto the next stage. Good luck and I look forward to seeing your progress!
