Why I have to learn Programming language?

Video games are a collection of software programs. These programs need
to be written with a programming language.

A library is a collection of code and routines to accomplish a specific task.
For example, a Graphics Library can handle 2d/3d graphics for the game. We can
use this code without knowing how it works. ie, it hides the details from us.

Coinsidering you dont know programming, I highley recommend not worring
about 3d graphics, as it will be very complicated.

But to answer this question: After saving your model in a file format, you need
to either build (or get) a library codec to load the file into your game.
Then the game can use the models data.

As long as you know a programming language, you should be able to compile/link,
and be able to use the libraries.

As I previously stated, first learn a language (and master it!) before taking
the leap into game development.

Hope this helps!

You don't have to learn a programming language. You can also make games using authorware programs such as Game Maker or by modding an existing game (Counterstrike is a mod of Halflife for example).

Learning a programming language can be an interesting task for many people and gives you far more control than the above solutions, but it can also be quite difficult and if it doesn't suit you it's not the only option. [smile]

Counterstrike is a poor example though as it is a dll based mod using the half-life SDK (You use a normal C++ compiler to compile the mods).
