Just wrote a rather lengthy response about Lua integration, delegation of power between an engine and a scripting language, "triggers," and more here: http://elysianshadows.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=6014

Added to the index.

I'm currently going through Michael Dawson's "Learning C++ Through Game Programming".

It's Title is slightly deceptive, it does teach C++ in the context of creating text based games, but it covers a lot of the basics concerning the language.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beginning-C-Through-Game-Programming/dp/1435457420/ref=dp_ob_title_bk/280-6263281-8800448


I've also ordered the Course in C++ from "The Game Institute"

http://www.gameinstitute.com/courses.php#cpp1

So I will let you all know how those go...

here's some video tutorials (3dbuzz calls em VTMs) C++ III
Pretty decent starting point for people new to programming and games.

C++ Free Video Tutorials

Postby Nohbdy on Mon Apr 16, 2012 12:15 am

For the beginner C++ programmer,
3DBuzz.com has a few free video tutorials that I love. I started with "Intro to Game Dev" in which I made sure to type everything I was seeing on the screen, since they end up creating an entire simple game from scratch(A level, enemies that go after you and avoid walls, the ability to shoot a fireball at them, etc.). I finally was able to see the entire process of a game, and understand so much better now how to combine all the concepts I learned into a project. I can't replicate the game by hand and there's still plenty I don't understand, but I'll be watching the "Intro to Game Dev" series quite a few times to get it down. Until then though, I went back and noticed their "Introduction to C++" and "Intermediate Techniques" and continually learning.
Registration is required to watch these free videos(except maybe the first).

Here is the link of free C++ videos:
http://www.3dbuzz.com/vbforum/sv_videon ... 74e0f&ks=1
"Intro to Game Dev" specifically:
http://www.3dbuzz.com/vbforum/sv_videon ... a82c99a863

There are 2-3 people talking in these videos, and honestly that's one of the reasons I love it. They keep each other in check with questions and discussion, and their joking around also it makes it very entertaining to watch!

Microsoft Visual Studio ? (it comes with a IDE and a multi language compiler(s) (c++, c#, vb, f#)

I am using MS Visual Studio 2010 and it's completely free.

I'm not much updated when it comes to 11, but isn't that the version for Windows 8?

Yh, 11 is a "flat" style version of vs (like metro in win 8)
Although, with 11, I have had no problems at all with it so far, ive been coding mini applications with it and works fine. But to be honest, it is a massive change from vs (in terms of knowing where things are....) because they changed all the icons :L

2010 is not "completely" free, but VS2010 Express is :P

Alright well thanks for the help. I got express. I should be able to do all of my beginner needs with it correct? And would it be worthwhile to purchase a license for VS at a later date? Or is there something more efficient?
