games programming is by no means easy. As i suggested take a look at the source code for an app such as DVD2XBOX that will give you a feel for creating static screen layouts then you can start to move onto the thousands of lines of code required to get moving characters Laughing

lol yeah i realize that now hehe...took a bit of looking around at actual code to figure out that it wasnt gonna be as simple as i thought. Crying or Very sad although the one thing im wondering about is the coding its self...does it really matter if i code in C++? why cant i code in C# i seem to understand that format much better. does C# have the ability to use the DirectX 3D? those are just a couple of the questions on my mind atm hehe. im really interested in this stuff but i just hope its not gonna take years upon years b4 i learn to make my first game..even if it is a crappy 2D game or worse yet one of those text games were you type "go north, go south, go east, or go west" lol
ill ttyl guys, thanks for your interest in my topic

idk man. i tinkered around with something back when i was 13 on a Tandy computer...i had the Tandy with the orange and black screen lol. anyway the coding looked something like this:

10 goto line 30
20 run
30 goto line 20

^pretty crappy example but i typed in hundreds of lines of this and finally i could play a game or use a paint program. i never had disks or anything to save the program to so everytime i wanted to use it i had to type for hours lol. Rolling Eyes idk what that language is though. i had a Mattel Aquarius too. i always liked playing that Advanced Dungeons n Dragons game for that. ive been wondering if i could find the source code for that game. and on another note...does anyone know the name of the game Tom Hanks plays on the movie BIG? the game with the evil ice wizard and he has to throw the thermal pod?

let me know if that ^ is VB
ttyl

Question Question no vb.net looks more like this

Code:
Function startProcess(ByVal BatPath, ByVal BatFile)
        Dim install = New Process
        If File.Exists(BatPath & BatFile) Then
            install.EnableRaisingEvents = True
            install.StartInfo.Arguments = BatPath & BatFile
            install.StartInfo.FileName = "CMD.EXE"
            install.StartInfo.WindowStyle =  _         System.Diagnostics.ProcessWindowStyle.Normal
            install.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = BatPath
            install.Start()
            install.WaitForExit()
            install.close()
        Else : MessageBox.Show("File '" & BatPath & BatFile & "' does not exist!" & vbCrLf _
        & vbTab & vbTab & "   Check the file and try again", "Check file")

        End If

    End Function

Public Class Frm_main
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

    Private Sub Btn_exit_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Btn_exit.Click
        Application.Exit()
    End Sub



the use of goto is considered bad programming and ideally should not be used

the IF...THEN are basic iteration statements in any programming language (along with the FOR loop). Until you can read and understand these you'll have no success games programming as loops and conditions are what you would use to control character generation/movement. Best thing is to keep reading

i think this stuff is pretty amazing though. cause you never see any of this while youre playing the games. i guess thats what they call "private" right. but although this stuff is interesting and amazing...its hard to understand! lol. like alot of things i wish it was one of those things you could just understand overnight but its not. guess i have some reading to do huh lol.

Merry Christmas!!!!

no, its called compiled source code. why would you want to play a game that showed you thousands of lines of source code Question

what you show above is old BASIC or QBASIC high level language. This is not a compiled language but an interpreted. The interpreter converts the code at runtime (program executon will be slow) whereas with VB.net, C#, C++,VB, etc they are all compiled so u have a .EXE which is the main executable. No code conversion takes place as it is already done Wink
