then after that (which will be useful when working with classes and structs and what not) possibly download some text based games and analyze what they are doing. possibly even try to find source to learn from. if nothing else, take an example game you like and try to emulate a little bit of it. i did this, and though it was tough at first, it taught me how to research stuff and expanded some horizons. i'm no industry vet, but i would think many people would say learn from examples and through some trial and error.

speaking of dev-cpp though, it has a great number of devpaks that you can download, some of which may help you in learning how to work with network code. not sure if there are any text based game engines (if there ever were ...) but there are some open source 3d engines there.

good luck!
