    and where can i find more information if i wanted to start something from skratch? i have pretty much zero programming experience. i took a visualbasic or some such class in high school, but that was 10+ years ago now.

    ive been able to figure out how to compile and upload the different games, and how to change some stuff around. text/graphics/more lives/smaller paddles/etc. and i understand the basic concept of “rules” based on if/then kinda statements.

    such as, if i wanted to make a rule for pong where players could momentarily make the ball disappear to screw up their opponent could essentialy work something like:

    if the ball touched player 1’s paddle last, he could push the button and it would make the ball switch to the other graphic, which would be blank, then switch back after a short douration or whatever.

    see what im getting at there? but how do i write that in something the computer understands?

    where can i find more information on creating objects and making them do stuff?


    Well, if you have no programming experience, you probably shouldn’t start by writing video games. I mean, it takes years to become a proficient programmer, and there’s no shortcuts. I’m not sure what to tell you other than to get some books on C/C++ and learn programming concepts and the language. You need to walk before you run. Know what I mean?
