I know, it's been asked a thousand times, but I do have specific needs.. sorta.
I want to program games for the PC with particle effects, maybe some 3D at some point but mainly rich 2D to begin with.
I also have no programming experience and.. I'm 24. Bit too long in the tooth?
I did touch on C++ years ago but it confused the crap outta me. I think I may have more patience for it these days and having used computers since I had my Atari ST, I know a thing or two about how they work.
So essentially, is C++ for me? Where should I go to get started?
Thanks in advance and sorry for the dumb-ass newbie question!
