Need Advice With Browser Based Game

Posted 25 March 2012 - 12:07 PM

hello all im new here so dont really know what to put for an opening sentance but i have been aspiring to become a programmer all my life, i enjoy playing games and have a locical mind to realise how things work. I have come accross a game (links to be posted) and i like the idea but i dont think it has been done to the best of its ability and was wondering if anyone could give me a hand and point me in the right direction for programs/resorces/coding help with the game, i dont know any coding as such but i know the law's and basics of java (not that its any help)

the links to the game are...

Original Game - http://www.youtube.c...h?v=9oePYnSGmMI

Knock off of game - http://www.youtube.c...ayer_embedded#!

just thinking of how much better i could make it. Ps i dont play the original game because there support is horrible and it is a FTP game, of which they changed it into if you dont pay your cannon fodder for the players that do decide to play.

anyway im looking foward to your advice or replys please give us a hand :)

yours hopefully jdaslmon123

Where do I start?


You start by learning a coding language FIRST.
Learn to plan before you type.
THEN you start designing software with a purpose.

Otherwise, you can just jump to the resources here:
Some of the tutorials below are for C# or Java not C, C++, VB.NET [...]. But the conceptual stuff of classes, object oriented design, events etc. are not language specific and should give you enough guidance in theory of program development for you to be able to look-up specific code example in your chosen coding language.

I'm not sure how much simpler I can put it than a list of books and other resources where you should start.

I gave you a bunch of links of where to start, and you came back asking for links. Looking at your posts I would assume English is not your primary language: Are we running into a language barrier here? Does the list I gave you not make sense?

  • Beginner:
    • C#:
      • Link to a reading list
      • Link to a Video series for absolute beginners
      • LInk to a great starting book

Yes. There are many.

Being new to DIC you may not yet have realized that the site will offer suggestions to other threads that seem similar to your question.

If you look at the very bottom of the page you will see all the threads that seem to be related to what you are asking: And there are a lot.

Maybe one of those holds the answers you seek.
