  1. Python Editor

    @ jbadams. Thanks! You have been very helpful!
  2. Python Editor

    [quote name='NightCreature83' timestamp='1349868167' post='4988672'] Is there any editor or editor plugin somewhere that makes the syntax highlighting in python behave as Visual Assist X(VAX) in VS with C# and C++? I mean I would like to see function calls being highlight in the function color as well as the definition, this will make my life far easier as I find it hard to code fast without VAX in C++ as well. [/quote] I believe pycharm does it, however it is a thirty day trial with an upgrade fee. Twenty-nine for students, ninety-nine for individuals.
  3. Python Editor

    After downloading five editor’s and being a bit confused on what I was looking at I started creating the only program I have learned to create. “Hello World” notepad++, komodo edit, IDLE (the free one with python), and pycharm. Being that I can navigate Google fairly well I figured it out on all three. I did not realize that I had criteria. 1. Simple to use, 2. Relatively cheap, 3. Make it user friendly, (easy to learn the program). As sad as this sounds with notepad++ I had a difficult time getting the program to run. (Which I later found out that meant debug mode is what I was looking for) I eventually did through YouTube and learning even more command prompt commands. I started komodo edit and this daunting $300 upgrade ad was staring at me. As silly as this sounds, as a college student there is no way I’m spending $300 anytime soon. It annoyed me. I finally started pycharm and it was amazing! It was easy to use, modest upgrade price and user friendly! Before you start picking me apart on the “user friendly” For me it’s the difference between Google and yahoo. I don’t like yahoo because it so busy. To the average idiot they wouldn’t know what to click first on yahoo and it would take them three times as long to do anything because they don’t know shit. Even if your experienced programmer and you have to switch editors for some reason, it would be nice to have an easy time learning the new program/editor.

  5. Python Editor

    So to everyone that helped me decided on python to learn programing thanks. Now I need a bit more help. I went to [url="http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonEditors"]http://wiki.python.o...n/PythonEditors[/url], to find an editor and the list was enormous.......... 1. How do you chose? 2. Reccomendations? PS- Im using windows 7.
  6. Progamming for beginners

    Thanks! Im new and know I want to get into game programming. I have no Idea where to start. Everyone says C++ Is the way to go... for games. I would was thinking of doing 2d games for now just to get a good understanding of how to develop them. Then later move on to something more advanced. I will be reading in depth on python and lua now. Thanks!

  9. Hello! First let me say I have ZERO programming experience. However, I love playing video games. I am not good at math but enjoy the challenge. I like the order and definitve set of rules that programing seems to have. I will learn C++ but that is not what I want to start with. I was looking for a language that would go well with C++, but is easy to learn and works well with it. After I pick the langugae and learn then I will worry about 2D vs 3D games and the engines for it... But most of all I am doing this for fun.... ! TO THE QUESTIONS! 1. What would be a good language that fits the above critirea? 2. Which would be easier for beginners 2d or 3d games? 3. Is it wise to go the "easy route" first? 4. Im attracted to python because I like snakes, weird I know... Would this be a good choice, why (or) why not? PS- (off topic) I do not hear as much as I used about C++, Is it becoming obsolete?
