    I have been trying to game program in C for a long time and I would like to know if you could help me. I really don't need to know a good website but I need to have some examples that show how it actually works and that will compile on Dev-C++. It is hard to find anything that will actually work for Dev and I need it to work. My friend and I want to start to make games and post them on the Internet. I don't want anything in anyother language (maybe C++) but I need to know how to load a picture in Dos and how to load pixels to the screen I need to know how to make things move and everything else that can go into the basics of a game.

    I know that you may not have that much time or that you may not even know C game programming but if you know anyone to help me please tell me I really need this so that I can start.
  • OK, you found your way here, which is a good start. But I am sorry to say that I am not familliar to Dev-C++ I don't know what it is. Is it some kind of compiler or a whole developement kit?

    Anyway I will give you a couple of links even though you said that you didn't want any. The thing is that you have to find the stuff that is right for YOU and it can be very challenging sometimes to help beginners for that reason. Chack these links and say what you think. You will probably only find resources on DirectX and OpenGL but I think that you might have to learn how to use them to get experience before you can start to hard-code stuff (sending single pixels to the screen as you described) which can be quite challenging.

    http://www.flipcode.com/
    (excellent forums and tutorials)

    http://www.gamedev.net/
    (similar to flipcode but the forums are bigger)

    http://www.gamasutra.com/
    (for professional game developers, I am sad to say that you have to register yourself before you may read their articles(no fee for regestering though))

    http://www.cfxweb.net/
    (greaphics stuff, very hard to navigate)

    http://nehe.gamedev.net/
    (I just recently found this homepage and it's got mighty many excellent tutorals and sourcecode)

    http://www.lighthouse3d.com/
    (they have some great GLUT(OpenGL Utility Toolkit) tutorials)

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,
    But.. I have already been to those websites and they didn't have anything that was of use to me and I really only need someone that will write emails to me about some of my problems. I need a mentor or someone that will help me on my path to C game programming. (I wanted buy tricks of the game programming gurus but its out of print!). Thanks for trying to help and for spending your time replying to my post.

    Thanks

    Right the first thing to do is to realise that DEV-C++ is just a IDE , the compiler is ever MINGW or CYGWIN depending on which version that you have got. Next is that this site has game code for your compiler and tutors.

    WWW.GAMECODING.CO.UK

    And this site has sample games with source (and probly were you got your compiler from).

    WWW.BLOODSHED.NET

    I hope this is of some help.

  • Hey, there are lots of great books out on the market. Try reading one, even old books at the local library are to some use. I once found a great book in abookstore that I bought calle "Advanced Game Programming using DorectX 7.0".

    If you're in the right age (not too old, not too young) you might want to try a game programming course?

  • dartsmandartsman Member Posts: 88
    Yeah I really want to do something like that but, I might just wait until I have finished High School! Yes I'm just another 15 year old brat(not really). But if you know of any courses and you want to tell me (only in Australia though) then post a reply.

    Hey if anyone has made a ANSII RPG in C please could you help me on my quest to make one. Thanks.
