HI EVRYONE!! I''m Glen Baxter of the Baxter Bros (my brother Les has moved to America.) And I guess I''m gonna become a familiar face here ''cos I''m gonna become a game programmer in C. First off check out our site and sign the guestbook http://baxters.narod.ru I have a few questions... 1 ASP and C are pretty similar, like i can understand c from my ASP experience, but is there a good way to transfer code direct (''tho ASP doesn''t support OPENGL yet!! ) 2 What are good books? 3 I wanted to use --==BAXTERS==-- (my usual format) 4 my username but wasn''t allowed it, why not? other users have such symbols. 4 If you need any extra habnds moderating then i love moderation, believe me!!! I have been looking at this orum and really respect you guys, you are top notch programmers, from one code dood to another, serious. I know I''m gonna get loads of help from you guys, and in return I can offer help with gifs and ASp, also I am a top web constructor, and know HTML pretty well too. L8ers GlEn BaXtEr and, on hihs behalf, LES too PS BE sure and sign our guestbook on home page!!!! Cheers, guys!

Not really, C and ASP aren''t the same thing, ASP is mostly VBScript and therefore not C but VB. Second, ASP is for web sites, not for game programming. It''s a way of building dynamic web sites. Anyhow, that''s what I had to say about your question.

....

plz dont use a mix of small case and upper case

2)Good books are anything you can learn from
4)We dont know you, no mod for you

flattery wont get you anywhere here
and plz do use spellcheck or something

now that that is out of the way

why learn c?
why dont you learn C++?

"and plz do use spellcheck or something"

well, that''s not the way to spell ''please'' ha ha,
only joking!
but what''s wrong with mixing cases? I think it looks c00l!

Also, there was no flattery, we are all excelling at different fields of the IT world here!

sorry shadow, didn''t see you were trying to make a serious point there.
I thought c was just a shorthand way to erite c++, right?

Baxter,

As someone who does know what he''s talking about, C is a subset of C++, and you''ll have to learn the syntax of C to program in C or C++. As to which you should learn 1st, that''s really up to you. People like SonShadowCat think C++ is the be all, end all of programming languages, when, in fact, the best way to program is to use C++ features only when it best fits the problem. Too many poeple use C++ stuff exclusively, and it makes the code more complex than it ever should be. Use C++ and objects when it helps you, otherwise, KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid).

Just my 2 cents.

hello les here, i do the gifs and mine was the cool3d which is dithered.
and i dint take knidly to you slagging off my gif.
i worked hard on that to get it just right and 4 people thought it looked proffesional.
please respect my art and i will be nice to you. otherwise i will laugh at you.
you know who you is sti
NKy

i will be cross.

did you like the watch this space holding gif.
i also dithered that and put a red shooting star to help the visual side of it, people wanted to use that on there webs page.

anyway i do flash now and it''s better than c because it''s vector and not text so there.

lots of love leS

Dont inter-capitalize it is something script kiddies do and it makes you look imature and stupid, thank you.

You''ll soon realize how people here operate, once you''ve got it, you will get the response you want, but people respond to you depending on what impression you make on them.

I''ll laugh back at you!

Anyways, the reason i posted was to say this:
Flash is NOT better than C, i bet Flash was programmed in C, i might be wrong there but its a good guess.
You can program ANYTHING in C, web browsers, games (both online and offline), databases, apps of all shapes and sizes, can you do that with flash? didn''t think so.

I admit flash is not bad if you do web sites but C/C++ is much better all round.


Anyway, good luck.
