and how are you going to complete the game? Mr. worst prog.
even if you have an engine, there is still the game code itself.

Remember that you have to be at least a competent programmer to understand those books. Good knowledge of C++ is a must otherwise they won''t do you any good.

Well thanks for informing me. I have a basic understanding of C++ and its OOP features but i''m still having troubles with some confusing topics such as pointers ..etc..etc...
I hope i will gain more experience and finally be able to program a game entirely by myself. (keep dreaming man )

Pointers are going to be confusing until you start using them. Do some small excercises just to get a feel for them. Play around, perform an illegal operation or two! I avoided them as much as possible when I learned C. Now that I''m learning C++ I''m really starting to warm up to them. They are really cool, kinda dangerous, and super powerful. Sam''s Teach yourself C++ in 21 Days by Jesse Liberty does a good job of explaining what they are, how they work, and when it''s a good idea to use them.

If you want to make an RPG in the fashion of SNES Final Fantasy and don''t want to learn programming, check out http://rm2k.phantomrpg.com/ for the english translation of a program called RPG Maker 2000, never used it, but the screenshots look like about what you are looking for.
