  1. A while ago i started using unity, and with unity came monodevelop. Now i am starting using MonoGame in the monodevelop editor. So i downloaded the monodevelop monogame file. and triet to "install add-in from file".   I got the following error:     I tried installing a non unity version of monodevelop, but got the error (something like) You need gtx# version 2.1.x.x.x.x.x (forgot).   Thanks

    I've decided unity

         http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/training-courses/c-fundamentals-for-absolute-beginners   Got nothing to do with Unity but if you want to become a game programmer imho you should learn to code first and worry about Unity later. Thanks for the help. Yeah I want and am willing to learn a language. I may have missed that bit in my op, but I wanted to ask which is most worthwhile and relevant to use later on with unity. I appreciate the link and I'll check it out.   https://buckysroom.org/videos.php?cat=15 Video tutorials here, they might not be for you, but it's around 200 * 5-10 min.   I haven't seen these, but i followed his java and c++ tutorials and they are nice   Also, it doesn't matter what you script in in unity. But if you want to proceed with ex. OpenGL you'll wanna learn a c language (c,c++,c#). If you wanna make websitelike stuff, use javascript.

    What's next for me?

    Since i feel i get good answers for anything here i'll keep asking questions. Does c++ and OpenGL work good for 2d? Would that be to hard for me? If not; any tutorials? Right now i want to make small games and upload to sites like kongregate... There is no way to do that with C++? I guess i could go back to keeping my stuff for my self... But i get less feedback then.

    What's next for me?

    Thank you for taking the time! The programming course is something i had heard was easy for anyone, especially someone that knew something before. What i am hoping for is being able to interact with a teacher and ask him questions about more advanced things that we dont learn in the course. I heard he is a great teacher, and my hopes are up the roof! :D (i guess that could be a bad thing) About the computercraft script... It was good for me, i learned how important version control and organizing / comments is. Thank you again
  8. A few years ago i randomly felt like learning programming, I was 11 and googled where to start. I got a random 5 part text based swedish guide for c++. It took me a while to learn but after that i had a very basic grasp of c++. I was super hyped... i had made a text based rock papor scissors game! Ofcourse i didn't know how to export it from my IDE and i had failed a bit with the randomness but... i had made stuff appear on the screen. I still didn't put much time into this, it was just something i did when i had time over.   So after that i didn't know  what to do... at the time i was a huge minecraft fan and my goal was modding minecraft, i had heard minecraft was made in java so i went learning it at thenewboston.com. A year had past and my english was decent so i could atleast understand most of what he said.After a year or so i eventually got through his basic/intermediate tutorials and made a cool 2d pong/snake game in swing. Still not putting that much time into the hobby.   At this point in time i still liked minecraft, and there was a mod for it that made computers/robots ingame that you could give scripts to in lua. It was fun and i made a script that got 35000 views on a forum... i was super proud until i realised there was a very major bug in the structure of the program that made it unusable... you would think that someone of the 35000 readers would tell me...   Wellwell, i still haven't solved that problem and my code was so unorganized i never will. After all that i started with unity after a few months break and found it awesome how fast you could make games with it.   I made a breakout game(following a tutorial), and then this random thing on a random afternoon where i had to much time (http://www.kongregate.com/games/theprodev/leaf-simulator-2015)   That leads me to today, unity is cool but in kind of feels like unoptimized cheating.  I'm 14 now, next year i have the choice to learn basic programming in school (can't wait!). I wan't to make good games, and i've never spent that much time on a project... I really want to learn opengl. I found this 3d tutorial, http://www.arcsynthesis.org/gltut/, and couldn't even setup the ide... i felt that was way beyond my scope (even though i learned a bit about vector math and the structure of programs there). For now i want to settle with 2d.   Any good tutorials for my skill level... or maybe another alternative?
