I can not say I am more of a logic person with interest in chess and the Boolean type flow chart of a game over my love of graphics, art and animation. So I suppose my questions are more for the application of 3D, open world games that operate both 1st person and 3rd that utilize weapons and shooter along with puzzles in flow of the story line or RPG games.
I was wondering if someone could expand on the topic of programing language for a beginner. I noticed a lot of web sites listed C++ but then others say that is a hard place to start and C# visual C might be better? I had used a little VB but that was Pre ver 4 in the 90's. More specific why one is better in an area than the other from both the learning curve but also the point of what you can accomplish better in one than another?
I notices Some places mentioned Python as on this site I take it as a Script type program? I downloaded the 3.4.1 but was wondering is someone could explain how it applies to game programing.
The PS4 and x-box one brought me to the question of the use of open BSD but I am unsure of what aspect of current platforms it is being used for?
While I get 1 person is not going to write the sound, visual effects, story line, game AI and the list of components, I was hopping to lean enough to get on board as part of a projects. I get it, you play game games, you love them and you have this absurd idea of wanting to create them. Like most other than Mods for Civilizations and Elder scrolls; I know there are a lot of different aspects and skill sets for many parts of an actual large scale Game. This seems to be a small part of what the Book Game Coding complete 4th ed gets into. Are there other resources or books that kind of break the game programing industry into the components and jobs?
No I will not be going to school on line or in person. Being disabled for the 14 years comes with a whole set of problems but It not mean when permitted by health I can not try to find some line of interest to add some income. Provided I do not get sucked into a hole playing Destiny.
