I''m running a website with various beginners tutorials, and I wanted to know what types of tutorials some of you would be interested in--if I can do it, I''ll type one up; if I can''t, I''ll learn it and then type one up. Check out the current site (sparse though it is) at http://www20.brinkster.com/draqza/ -- WNDCLASSEX Reality; ... ... Reality.lpfnWndProc=ComputerGames; ... ... RegisterClassEx(&Reality); Unable to register Reality...what''s wrong? --------- Dan Upton Lead Designer WolfHeart Software

How about a windows tutorial? DirectX tutorials are a little overdone and all the windows tutorials are in MFC instead of Win32 API. What do you do if you want to respond to aletter being pressed on the keyboard after you write WM_CHAR? MSDNs tutorials are all in MFC so its no help.

the source code for a really basic game using graphics would be really helpful... although i have no idea if this would be really time consuming or what... you know, just like a game where maybe you have to move a cursor to a certain point on the screen or something. something really simple with really simple gfx. that''s all.

my opinion on learning any language, is just to experiment with code that already works and see what changes to it make it not work. that''s basically the best way i find to learn anything (html, java-script, flash, 3d modelling, math, french, japanese, bhojpuri, somalian, slovakian you name it).

maybe release that code answer as many questions you can about the code a newbie such as myself may ask, and if we still have questions, we''ll email ya questions (or a forum or something), and you can post the answers to the question on your page or something.

hehe, i think i''m asking a bit much, ah well you wanted my opinion :D

Well, b0b, I already have basic windows primer for creating a window and using resources and whatnot without using MFC or the appwizards. Although I maybe should add a quick tutorial on receiving key-presses the way I learned it (apparently there are several ways).

And Epsilon... I''ll see about that. The 0to1 group I joined is supposed to be from game programming anyway, so it''s high time I got a game programming tutorial up.

how about several tutorials of pong in ascii and then in windows ?

each tutorial will display different ways to complete the program

with basics
then classes
then pointers
etc

a while ago i completed pong in ascii but the end file was 146k

i havnt had proper time aside to look into things, but have been trying to rewrite it using classes and later links lists so that the ball can split into three balls and also i wanted to add random animated flying balls to collect (one of them will split the ball in 3, and others will expand and contract the paddle, etc) like arkanoid ..

reason for ASCII is so that it will literally compile anywhere without special libraries that have to be hunted down, and thus can help ANYONE (who should be able to compile it) learn the basic concept without having the problem of graphics display cards and memory problems.

I would like to know how to interpret mouse button clicks, dragging, (anything mouse related) in the Windows environment. I learned how to do it under linux (Programming for X Windows book taught me), but am now working on trying to understand it under Windows (currently don''t have a book).

If I could learn that, then I could convert some of my X based programs over to Windows.
