Is it possible to make a very simple game with C++? any good sites to read up on how to do it? I have a program called Dev-C++. any kind of tips or code that i should know? I'm am just a noob at C++. I wish to play with it before I attend a computer programing camp during this summer. thanks

Of course it is possible. I've been thinking about making a command-line (text) based RPG with C++. What you could do is say, create some bad guys, create a menu of what the user can do to them, randomize some attacks and etc... It will take a lot of function work but yes it could be done. I don't know of any good sites that provide basic game info. But there are lots of OpenGL sites and advanced sites. But you won't make a 3D game by this summer so I'd stick with command line stuff.

C/C++ is a fully functional language, you make the computer do virtually ANYTHING you want. The limitations of the language can be overcome with experience and skills.

BTW: 73.2 % of all games on the market are created in C/C++ in cluding popular titles such as Warcraft 3, and Diablo 2.

I just wrote a small game in C++. I also have the source code to a few RPG games. It actually isn't that hard to make a console RPG. And as BountyX said, funny you should ask if games could be made in C++ because almost all games are. So you've picked the right language! You wouldn't want Java or C# as much because they are slower languages.

You can now get the original Quake source files (C++) and see what a full game looks like.

Check the website for it. Its released under the GNU rules.

i have my first game code of a dice game you can look at if you would like. ill post it if you reply back, it displays the dice using characters... its simple but i like it.

i wrote it a while ago but anyways...

:D thnx for posting it pretty cool, but use the [ C O D E ] [ / C O D E ] tags next time plz I had to school for almost an hour on my laptops little 800x600 resolution lol

hi, i'm a beginner in programming
i've tried to compile your game but it doesn't work. i used Borland C++ 4.52.
it says "declaration sintax error" for "using namespace std"; what does this line do??

You should read "Sams Teach Yourself Game Programming in 24 Hours." It is a very good book with a lot of examples. It uses C++.
The Program compiled for me. Pretty cool program.

the using directive is almost like the #include command. it is using the namespace std (or standard) held in the iostream header file. what it does is it lets you use the line:

cout << "Hello"; 
 
instead of needing
 
std::cout << "Hello";

it's just more convenient...
i do recommend the SAMS book...;)

That dice game look awsome and i compiled and played it on my computer, using dev-c++.
though i had a question: How does the computer randomize the dice roll:?:

What's Google? And also look in your previous thread; it's answered there too. Bumping old threads is generally discouraged, if you have a new question, post it in its own thread.

I also have the source code to a few RPG games. It actually isn't that hard to make a console RPG.

are those console or 2D codes?? mind sending em my way??

as for the original poster here is a good site
http://theharbourfamily.com/jonathan/?page_id=89

it's about GBA programming, but he starts you out with games like Pong & Tetris on C with vector graphics...really cool for starting out

> are those console or 2D codes?? mind sending em my way??
Did you read the dates of those posts?
Reading their profile, it says "Last Activity: 10th Apr 2004".

I've got a new game, it's called "thread bumper 2007" :icon_rolleyes:
