  1. Looking for C++ tutorials and projects

    [quote name='BrentChua' timestamp='1354778028' post='5007659'] The book Beginning C++ Through Game Programming by Michael Dawson is also a good book to read. It doesn't cover C++ too in depth but just enough to get you comfortable with C++ while maintaining the topics game development centric at the same time. Its easy to read and follow through the code samples. [/quote] Thank you for your help, BrentChua. Definitely going to look into that. It actually looks like exactly what I'm looking for. Between that book and Serapth's tutorials I should be occupied for a long time. Lol. I'd still welcome any more resources anyone can throw at me though. Especially beginner project ideas, and websites or books with just a list of potential projects would be gold.
  2. Looking for C++ tutorials and projects

    [quote name='Serapth' timestamp='1354759824' post='5007604'] Well, that's the nice part about my tutorial. It's over 10 parts, but each part includes a completely pre-configured project that you can download. So you can play around at any time without having to mess with setting up the linker, etc... [/quote] Oh, ok! I see what's going on now. Thank you for the help!
  3. Looking for C++ tutorials and projects

    Hey, biased just means you know what you're talking about. ;) Definitely bookmarking that to look into once I'm more familiar with the basics of C++. I wonder if you might be able to help me find some tutorial projects. Tutorials on how to code are plentiful, but it seems that very few of them actually include any tutorial projects, or anything where I can test myself to see if I can apply the concepts as I learn them. More than anything else I need practice, but it's at times difficult to know exactly what I should be practicing. If that makes sense. Lol. I thank you sincerely, Serapth, and if you or anyone else could help me further, I would be forever ingratiated. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]

    Thak you Cdrandin!! Those youtube channels I can see being especially useful, as I'm more of a visual learner than anything. Nevercould find anything like that myself. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] I appreciate it!
  5. Looking for C++ tutorials and projects

    Hey everyone! I'm new here, so if I'm posting at the wrong place at the wrong time, wrong place at the right time, or any such combination, please forgive me. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] I've been teaching myself C++ for the past month or with the interest of developing a roguelike. I realize this is a huge undertaking, but for now this is my, big, longterm goal. Anyway, what I'm looking for right now are some good tutorial websites with project ideas to complete, preferably centered around gaming. The resources I use now are.. ~~ [url="http://www.learncpp.com/"]http://www.learncpp.com/[/url] ~~ From what I can understand, a good tutorial, but lacking in projects and ideas for application... ~~C++ for Dummies~~ Yeah, for dummies probably wasn't the best idea, but it's helped explain some concepts I've otherwise been lost on. ~~ [url="http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-096-introduction-to-c-january-iap-2011/"]http://ocw.mit.edu/c...nuary-iap-2011/[/url] ~~ Open course notes with some project ideas but nothing game design oriented. If there's anyone out there that can point me at some additional resourses, either someone experienced that knows what I should be looking for from a programming perspective, or else a fellow newbie who want to swap sites, I'd really appreciate hearing from you! Thanks in advance! ~Chuckles
