    Ted,



    If you know nothing about programming, then you've got a long way ahead of you before you're making a complete game, but it's a fun road.



    I would recommend a college class or two to get the basics of programming, or there are several books out there that are great for beginners, and explain a lot of the basic concepts of programming. I learned most of the basic concepts of what I know from the book "Tricks of the Game Programming Gurus".



    Good luck.


  • You have to learn a programming language before you can do any type of programming, game or not. I would recommend C as a language, and C Programming For Dummies as a starter book.

    As a follow up to the programmer above, I think you should learn C, goto cprogramming.com for your questions or here whichever you want.

    but goto cprogramming.com and follow their links they will help.

    lastly check at the library for books
