  1. For this example i will be using the word game   <game> code </game>   Easy!
  2. (Keep in mind i'm pretty new to GMS still so forgive if i don't understand a few things about it)   So i was testing a few mechanics in GMS and one of the things i was were two sprites in the same x/y coordinate and moving independently of eachother (the bottom sprite moves in the direction of the WASD keys and the top in faces the mouse) but whenever i try to do that the sprite that should be on the top is on the bottom, how do i control sprites from doing this?
  3. So what command could i use to change the depth while the program is running, such as the character has a depth of 0.5, and you walk up to a rock with 1 depth, then you pick it up, above your head, how would you changes the z axis  to below 0.5?
  4. Really? i didnt know there was such a thing as depths xD i feel really dumb now

    What is VC#

    What exactly is VC# (Visual C#) the language used in visual studio, and how is it different from C#? I'm wondering why because im going to be using the 2012 version pretty soon and i would like to know how it works and how its different...

    Ready yet?

    In order to make ANY type of game i would recommend you AT LEAST learn the basics completely, it can be done without the basics, but i don't recommend it   In my own interpretation i thought it was about problem solving, not trying to say your wrong, its just my own take on it that i wanted to share...
  10. This has nothing to do with your question, and you dont have to answer this if its a private project, but whats the game???
  11. (Before you read anything, just remember that i am learning programming so my advice could be wrong) If you want to do C# or JAVA there are pro's and cons, if you wanna create something with your friend, do C#, and after you learn that do C++ and it will be TONS easier, but in my experience, java is a lot easier to learn in any variation (At least for me)   I believe that JAVA is for both MD and PC but i'm not sure, so you might wanna check it out, and C# is slightly better then JAVA for simple games.  For example, i heard that this one C# book teaches you to make a simple game within the first (50 page give or take) chapter...   Since you're not going to publish games on PC or MD anytime soon, i recommend visual studios, its hard to transfer it to anything, but then again its not going to be pubished on anything, and its takes all types of languages, including C# and JAVA   I hope this was helpful!  Please tell me if anything in this is wrong.
  12.  Well even though i have no knowledge of learning to program, i can still give some advice, that could be entirely wrong so be warned.   From what I've learned, its incredibly hard to make a game right off the bat, everyone mainly says you need to ATLEAST get the basics down before making a simple game, and depending on what genre of the game is, the animation, etc. the language varies, so if you could specify that, it would be great!

    Where should i start with programming?

    Ok, thanks for the help guys!
  14. I'm looking to start computer programming, I would like to do C++.  I know a small portion of general programming like variables, functions, xy, etc. but I don't know much past that, should I start with a book? is there an online course i can do?  And I've also heard that in order for visual 'things' to happen you need another program for that??? I would really appreciate if someone could help!

    Where should i start with programming?

    No way of deciding to wait for the VS2013 version or get the VS2012 version... HMMMM

    Where should i start with programming?

    Just dont ask about python...
  17. I'm looking for books to learn C# at an absolute beginners level, can anyone recommend a book/online tutorial?
  18. Honchkrow

    Where should i start with programming?

    Also do you recommend any C# books i can start off with?
  19. Honchkrow

    Where should i start with programming?

    Thanks, I'll probably do C#, i'm never doing python though, just don't ask...

    Where should i start with programming?

    But should i use on online tutorial, or a book, or anything else i didn't think of, which is more immersive in your opinion? (And regarding graphics, i was just wandering, im not jumping straight into a game)
  21. This isn't meant to be offensive at all but i'm just laughing so hard when you said "I've been working on this for the past two hours"
