Personal Information

  1. Looking To Interact With Other Beginners

    Awesome l2ob122 what language are you learning?
  2. So I started building my first game a text RPG over the Christmas holidays in Python:   https://github.com/JamPol/FirstAttemptProgrammingPython/blob/master/RPGBox.py     I've decided to switch over to C++ for various reasons. I'm looking for other complete beginners since I feel chatting and sharing what is learnt is the best way to learn. I've decided to become serious about making games and not just thinking about making games. I'm tired of coming up with ideas for the "ultimate project" and then realizing a reasons it can't be done. I just want to program game after game and work my way up. I'm not really much for voice chat but there's always the messaging system on gamedev.net, Steam, e-mail, Facebook, whatever works.   I don't believe there's any sort of chat section on Gamedev.net if anyone has any other suggestions for beginner friendly chat areas on the web, let me know. Thanks!   Also comments on my code and how it could have been improved would be greatly appreciated.
  3. So sometimes I wish to game in the living room which is on the opposite side of the house from my office. I was hoping there was some software that I could use to stream through the local network the picture of what's happening on my desktop over to my laptop, and have control using my mouse/keyboard of my laptop. But I haven't had any success finding any software like this. So is it possible to have my desktop computer do the work and stream to my TV or laptop on the opposite side of the house through the local network?

  6. Was able to write a program to display an image last night, very proud moment. Today I'm more focused on getting everything that must be done in my life out of the way so I can have a more focused mind.

  9. Nice to finally have a full day of programming accomplished
  10. Code Examples

    Much appreciated.
  11. Just put together my first while loop, also it's bloody cold right now (-27)
  12. Code Examples

    What are the best resources on the web for finding everything from little tidbits of code to fully working games? I would like to have some insight on the formatting/trends/layout that others use.
  13. Am I understanding typedef correctly?

    Alright that makes sense, thanks for steering me in the right direction. I'll start experimenting with typedef tonight.
  14. Am I understanding typedef correctly?

    Alright so for a rough example: typedef int volume_soup; volume_soup amount_soup; changing the integer representation from volume_soup to amount_soup for the rest of the code until told otherwise, correct?
  15. I've got a feeling that I'm wrong on this subject, so here it goes. From what I've come to understand from Google is that typedef doesn't affect the compiler in any way, it's for telling other programmers (and possibly a reminder for yourself) that the (int, var, ect.) is brand new to that section of code and hasn't been pulled from anywhere else in the project. Am I close?
