Hello guys! im a (noob) programmer and i started learning c++ and i have been watching tuts and i have learned all the basic stuff but all the tuts i have watched all only use a console! i feel i have the basics down but i dont know how i would use c++ outside of a console window with just basic math and printing strings. so the question is is there any good tuts for C++ that is for beginners but also not on console but on a engine that is pure code? thanks

For something more than the console, you can look at things like SFML. This gives you windows, graphics, input, and audio handling.

 

^^^  Not only is SFML an easy library, it will introduce you to what classes that you write should look like.

do i have to re input the sfml path every time i make a new project? i give up and restart all the time.

 

Yes, every time you make a new project you have to add the links to the header files and libraries.  But that just means you'll get lots of practice.  smile.png

 

There are tons of examples that come with the library.  I would start by running those and seeing what looks interesting.

I'm almost certain that you can create your own custom project templates with all paths set up, so that when you create a new project, you can use this template as the base, and you don't have to add the SFML paths manually.

 

Do a web search for "Creating Visual Studio Project Templates"
