In my search for knowledge I stumbled across a great video tutorial for 2D game programming in C/C++ with Allegro 5.
I thought it would be a nice thing to share it with those starting out in game programming.

Here is the link: [url="http://fixbyproximity.com/2d-game-development-course"]http://fixbyproximity.com/2d-game-development-course[/url]

I worked with Allegro in the 90's with DJGPP but I completelly forgotten about it since I moved to VB.net for my work. But lately I've been researching what to use to program a couple of remake of old 8bit classics. I've started studying Directx 11, which I still intend to continue, but I remembered that I was using Allegro in the past with great result. So I went and downloaded the 5.0 release for Visual Studio (I'm planning to move to the 5.1/5.2 branch soon) and for the fun of it, I've search on Youtube for some video on the subject. And boy was I surprised to find this. It is well explained and quite detailed but in a no nonsense, non pedantic way. Kind of like the great C++ tutorials by [url="http://www.youtube.com/course?list=ECAE85DE8440AA6B83&feature=plcp"]TheNewBoston[/url] that are equaly great if you want to learn about C++.
