    Game Programming IDE

    Quote:Original post by dih sounds like express is the way to go for me and our IT club. yeah to be honest if you're just starting out , then grab the 2008 express, watch some of the vids and find some tutorials (also some links on this site too) to be honest you wont need any of the bits found in the pro edition until you get to grips with the language

    Visual Studio 2005 EE Setup can't establish connection to the server

    hi below is a link to the iso version of Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=57034 (you can burn this to CD, or you can use winRAR to extract the files to a folder to desktop and run setup from that, Or you could even mount the image using daemon tools) after you install it i suggest you grab the service pack from : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=7b0b0339-613a-46e6-ab4d-080d4d4a8c4e&displaylang=en

    Large projects

    well on your computer science couse, you probably come across topics like Software Engineering and object oriented programming. I came across these at Uni, but there is a gamedev section you should take a look at: http://www.gamedev.net/reference/list.asp?categoryid=66

    Try this book Redzilla: http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Game-Programming-Direct-9-0c/dp/1598220160/ref=pd_sim_b_5 I had the older version and found it useful
