    Where do you guys go? One site that i think is *excellent* is: www.gametutorials.net Don't let the name fool you, it's more indepth than just a bunch of kiddies going "WEEEEE LETS SMMKAKEE GAMESS!!!". Also www.gamedev.net has a lot of links, and http://nehe.gamedev.net/ has great openGL guides.

    Also, do you guys know of any good c/c++ forums (preferably c++)?

    I don't - but thanks for the links since I've been meaning to brush up on my, barely existent, C++ knowledge.

    Are these links good for anyone who has no experience with any programming? I want to learn so I was wondering if they are a good place to start if you have never done it or are they aimed more for people who have previous experience?

    Grab a book. I'm not sure when this book would be released, but one of my old professors that taught C++ is writing a book that guides you through step by step in making some console based game. It's pretty basic, but you WILL learn the functionality of C++ and how to code it.

    The version I have (In one of the beta stages) is called: C++ By Mark Kunka.

    It's a great guide for beginners who want to learn how to code C++, considering you have some knoweldge in C.

    If you don't have any prior programming experience, I would suggest learning some C before proceeding into C++. Just my two cents.

    Keep an eye out for the book. It will be out soon I'm sure.

    I would definately say yes, especially to the gametutorials.com link. I had been looking around at other beginners tutorials and then I found that site, their format is really well laid out in each .cpp file (The tutorials are full comments in the source code)
