This tute is a general intro to the overall structure of a game. If you want a more in depth look at creating games with graphics in C++, check out my new series on DirectX, link below:
Today, we look at putting a complete program together. Even though we’ve still got a lot to go through with C++, we can start making fun and useful programs already.
I’ve made a little game and it’s a good intro into how games work since even the largest commercial games actually have a lot in common with this little program.
I’ve not gone into much detail on how it works since it’s best to download the source code and play around with it or type it out yourself and figure out why it does as it does.
