C++ Beginner game programmers attention!

Hi there,

I'm fairly new to C++ and I'd like to learn a lot more about it. Therefor a friend of mine and I are planning to make a game in C++.

The exact idear and story of the game isn't clear yet but we do know that it must be:

A RPG game
2D-Background, probebly 3D-characters
The screen lay-out is going to be ZELDA(New GBA Game) like

My friend and I are working on screen details, characters, the storyline now. We've got little C++ programming experience and this is a big challange for us. Because it's such a big challange for us it might me easier to make the game with a couple more programmers.

If you're interested in joining us with making this game, then please contact me at: kevin_freaked_out@hotmail.com. Subject line: C++ Game. Please suply me with information about your programming experience and what you really like to program(empl: Grapics, AI, Sound, Backgrounds, Art).

I will try and read all e-mails as soon as possible and you're mail will certainly be replied.

    How are you with not much experience going to do that...
    I am also going to do this like, but I'm finishing my basic tutorial before.

    for more info: www.netgamers.tk But I must agree with you that your first time is a big challenge, so it is for me.
    But I'd recommend that you first go learn the basics, then we'll talk further.

    It may be worth while you hosting your project on www.sourceforge.net and others.

    I was like you when I 1st started programming with C++. I wanted to make games. But let me suggest you read a book like "Sams Teach Yourself C++ in 24 hours" then buy a book on Data Structures in C++, and then you'll have enough knowledge and experience in C++ to start your adventures in game programming. That's what I've done. I'm a computer science major, and have taken 6 hours in CSC (the classes teach c++)Now that I'm very comfortable and knoweldgeable about the language and object oriented programming, I've started diving into Windows programming and game programming. I know you want to start right now, but just if you start a game as a begginner programmer, you won't create anything specatular if you create anything at all. Just be patient. Believe me, I've been where you are right now. Happy learning!

    I'm not a huge fan of the Sams books...and if you, like me, can't afford a good book for any ol' reason I suggest you download a book called 'Thinking in C++' by Bruce Eckel. There's one for Java as well, should anyone be interested.
