I recently bought the "Teach Yourself Game Programming In 24 Hours" and it doesn't seem to be helping me much. The book gives you code for a game but really doesn't explain it or tell you how to use it in your own game. I am attempting to make a game with Borland C++ Builder 6 that is a 2D shooting game where the mouse is crosshairs. I have the background and objects set up but I don't know how to get the objects to move for one thing. I also don't know how to make the game count the hits, make the mouse a crosshair, and I don't know how to incorperate sound. One more thing, I really don't understand how you are supposed to just know what C++ commands you are supposed to type. Please help me out here... Thanks!
