(OK, here is a reposted update, with a few more tutorials. More to come!) Maybe it's just me, but does it seem as if most tutorials online teach technical things, without showing how they apply in gamedev? For example, while many tuts teach SDL, I have only found one that handles setting up a basic jumping game using SDL. So, this thread is a place to post tutorials that teach a game from start to finish( the tuts don't have to teach the language and API). Here are some of my links: EDIT: Thx to Simon10k for placing these these all together, and posting more links along with Invisal. You rock guys rock! All in one place =) setting up a basic jumping game arcade games in SDL(other cool things too) scrollersin SDL(also some OpenGL) DirectX platformer online java game Asteroids in SDL WYSIWYG game editors, map editors, resources, and game engines lots of complete game dev source, check out the rest of the site too strange, but it looks like a complete game,so what the heck! free tuts on C++, win32, DirectX, OpenGL, and Physics good for templates scratchProjects.com Tetris in an hour An awesome game maker! We use it all the time to prototype and try new concepts! I didn't have a good experience with this, your's might be different Tons of free games and Dev Tools! OK, this is good for beginners, includes OpenGL and DirectX. Teaches Pong, includes source for pacman, pong, tetris, and breakout! You might want to read some other beginner tuts before this one, cuz it swamps you with unexplained code in the first chapter. But hey, Asteroids! Breakout in Direct3d! Need I say more? This looks like a good site Wrath Lands text-base rpg video tutorial from start to finish Space Breakout - 2D Game Developed using DirectX and C# falloutsoftware Killer Game Programming in JAVA PS. Please post more,as long as they cover making a complete game. Thx for the help guys! Please post here if this has helped you at all. I want to know how many people this is helping.

strange, but it looks like a complete game,so what the heck!

free tuts on C++, win32, DirectX, OpenGL, and Physics

What programs should i use? I think i need to download a few any one know wich ones im looking for?


I think that it depends on what you want to program. I can't tell you which you want to use because I don't know what you are looking for :)

Amazing isn't it?

Well, I'm running out of links, and the amazingly fast find-anything Google is failing me in my search. I guess it's easier to write how to do a technical thing, i.e. setup, than it is to do a complete game. Looks like there are so few out there, but don't worry, I know there are more, and I will not rest until I find them!.... (Actually, I had a very good nights sleep, thank you very much)^_^

OK down to business, two prototyping and game maker links, and I could have sworn I had a DirectX one!

An awesome game maker! We use it all the time to prototype and try new concepts! PS If you don't have directX, get the old v5, cuz the new v6 uses it very heavily!

I didn't have a good experience with this, your's might be different

Tons of free games and Dev Tools!

Aah.. Now for that DirectX link... ..give me a sec.... .....Got it!

OK, this is good for beginners, includes OpenGL and DirectX. Teaches Pong, includes source for pacman, pong, tetris, and breakout!

More to come!

Damn forum software. The rest of that line should read "under 1000 land. Stop being concerned about a little number on the Interent".

Thanks Simon! I was looking for that link!

Who's this anonymous idiot? Oh well, like I care! If he can't pm me, or at least post under his own name, I have no respect for him and will not grant his incredibly crude request! If he had used his name honorably, I would have considered him my equal, and could have sent him a personal apology, while deleting my signature, but anonymous is not worth my time. The signature stands!

Edit: Simon, buddy, get used to it. there are jerks like anonymous everywhere. We upstanding forum citizens just have to deal with them. It's sad, I know.

Sorry no new links yet, but I'm looking!

Well, due to a misunderstanding, I have been gone for three days, and apparently, had my name dragged through the mud during my abscence. Anyway, I survived the torture and came back stronger, despite my adversaries best efforts. Now for revenge! mhuahahahaha!

More links before I conquer the world!(Yes, I am deluded):

free web hosting for your tuts,clans, devteam, etc.

Apparently, this will help your problem soving skills and programming

Lots of programming and logic, problem solving, abstraction

I do have a mind to delete this whole thread, because it's seems to be reeeeeeeeeaaaaal dead.

Hey, that rhymes!

Hi all, yet again, I am back on my quest for complete game programming tutorials(They hide behind the trees, the little sneaks).

However, I realize I have completely overlooked text game programming(the funny little console programs where your character is an @, and they actually have a good story because they can't hide behind pretty graphics).

These games are great when you start programming, because they let you apply the concepts you learn with out worrying about overcomplication on the graphics end(and deep down inside, they're just tiled graphics).

So, the next part of my quest is complete text games. These can be as simple as tic tac toe, chess,and hangman, or as complicated as Zork clones and text RPGs.

Again, thx in advance, and I can't wait for your links. I will still accept graphics links too.
