(learning to program video games from scratch)
Welcome to my Yaroze Diary. When I decided to get into Net Yaroze, I knew nothing about C and had only the vaguest inkling of the effort that goes into programming a game. I knew it was a lot of work, and that I would have to be prepared to be hopelessly stuck for a while, but I remain convinced that one day I will be able to create something that will have even the most hardened coders murmuring "Cool " under their breath.
Please take the time to flick through the diary! As well as the links below, I have a zipped RTF document which usually contains the most recent version here!
Although I am writing about learning C, this diary is not here to offer anyone specific tutorials or exercises; please remember that I am still a novice programmer myself! What I am trying to do here is communicate my experience of learning C with the intention of programming Sony's Net Yaroze. If this diary happens to inspire or encourage any wanna-be programmers or dedicated game-heads to follow in my footsteps (and I hope it does), then it's done something useful. And if you know infinitely more about programming than me? Well, this might prove a fun read in any case (and if not, at least the C gods out there can scoff at my feeble ineptitude)
