Help me, i am a newbie!

Recommended Posts

I have always dreamed of creating my own games, i always wanted to create a game based on the Matrix. But i never really started to follow my dream utile i bought Max Payne. My Question is.....is there a way to rip game engine out of commercial games to use in your own? (don''t laugh, i am new to programming). And if so, would it just be easier to creat matrix mods? And does any one have tips for creating mods for Max Payne? Robert Lee Godwin

No, that''s not possible.

You don''t normally need to rip the engine code out of a game to make a mod anyway. Check around the website of the game, they''ll have either information or downloads for making mods (if they''re authorized). Otherwise, check around on the internet for information.

Hey, what i would say is that you should go out and do these things:
================
1. Get a Compiler (MS VC++)
2. Get the book "Teach your Self C++ in 21 days" or "Teach your Self C in 21 days"
3. Get the book "OpenGL Game Programming" or any on DX8
================
Hope that helped!
