I sent a message earlier. But I don't see it on any pages! :)

If there are any game programmers out there, can you give me some tips on how to get started? What should I start with? What language? (I WILL NOT USE VB- I hate it).

Thank you!

I'd suggest any variation of C++ or Pascal/Object Pascal (ie: Delphi). You can easily learn C++ right off the bat. It's not too hard at all if you just work at it.

C++ is a good idea. I'm learning too, anyway.

i'd start with "pure" c first and then go over to c++.. the "primitive" stuff is anyway the same (variables/functions)

mostly all tutorials just confuse stuff by using cin/cout with their weird syntax.
(overloaded operators are just confusing before you understand classes & functions. i see that in our computer class, where nobody seems to know how & why they work (probably not even our teacher, but thats an different matter))

Some ppl will probably disagree, but whatever :)

I agree CViper actually!

I was long confused by the bitwise shifts in cin and cout.

Though cout is a lot easier to use, in some cases than printf. (I've honestly never remembered anything other than %s, %d, %l, %c)

I like stdio... I've never felt any real need to use cout or any other iostream function...

I agree with you , I hate VB too. Althought I would never say its "bad" or "useless". VB has its own purposes. C++ is the best language , Delphi is good too. But bear in mind there are many good languages , why dont you go to Google and search throught their directory , Computers =>> Programming =>> Languages. It can be useful .
