    Default Read before posting: The basics of Programming/Game Development

    Introduction

    Ever wanted to make your own games or programs? With this bit of information, you can be set well on your way to doing just that.. Of course it'll take a ton of experience in programming boring stuff before you can get to the good stuff! So in this, I'll do my best to teach you those boring things in various programming languages so that one day you may be able to make games of your own!

    Vocabulary


    What's the best place to start?


    Where can I go to learn more?


    Java (Downloads)


    Java (Basic Program)


    C++ (Downloads)


    C++ (Basic Program)

    Malbolge


    From here, I can only wish you luck. If you've gone over each subject, you should be set and ready to begin your first program!

    Any other questions? Feel free to ask down below and I'm sure it'll be answered (Whether it be by me or another).

    Good luck!

    Working on a completely new and better guide! Should be here in a week or two.

    This guide is great! I now have a new source to be learning more about a programming language im not so familiar with yet!
    I honestly prefer starting out making simple programs in command prompt though...

    Thanks!

    That's exactly what everyone should start with. My first "game" I made was a simple command prompt that used java.util.Scanner and java.util.Random to take in user data and create a random integer for a variable I called "Comp". It was just basically a 1 beats 2, 2 beats 3, and 3 beats 1, it's not much but it was my first game hehe. I've recently moved on from Java to C++... I like C++ a lot more now that I learned Java lol.

    Added C++ optional choice... It seemed a little too "shallow" with just Java

    Fun fact, Growtopia (both the client and the server) was written in C++!

    I always knew the client was, but I never knew about the server

    Indeed.. Have you seen the 99 bottles of beer in Malbolge? Jesus Christ, it looks like WAVES.

    Updated the format a bit, added in a Java Program Break-down. Hoping to add a couple more languages this weekend..

    Yeah, I might actually do that. Python is a good one to start with in the very beginning.. So basic, yet so much potential.

    Html should be pretty quick to add if you wanted to.

    I've thought about that and the one problem I find is, I don't really understand it myself.. I mean the coding is pretty straight forward, it's just that it'll take up a ton of time explaining how to download, format, and compile HTML in Notepad++. If I had some free time, I might consider it.. I can assure you I'll get around to it eventually.

    Well along the description i would reference w3schools.com (its how I learned Html) because they do have an editor that you input html and it will export it into a preview (though the actual tutorials on the website were not very explanatory so i had to learn html by messing around with everything at the time)
    I guess it would be a temporary solution for html then when you want to you could add additional information on setting the workspace up with Notepad++ (in fact i don't fully understand setting up some parts of notepad++)

    I'd love to make one, but now I know that coding things is like exploding your head (for people like me)
