Erm... Thats my first problem, I will get the information for the game when I recieve specific "History" knowledge on my suspended "Can I be published now?" website.

What are the languages and the differences, I heard there was a language for gaming?? I got a teacher (no, a program) and I dont get anything out of it, Microsoft's search for online teachers results in zilch

Well, once you know what language, you could try searching online for (whatever language) tutorials; that works well for me.

Well, I program in VB, and I'm pretty good with the language, but I'm still learning the graphics functions. I've got a solid foundation, and I can get you started on the basics if you want to learn VB, but I'd recommend C, a language I have only a little taste of. I'm working on a VB game, and there is a VB games community, but there are better languages for game programming.

3D is what I'm planning on, I'm now kinda stuck 'cause Goblinarcher says "basic", my game will probably be complicating. Anything for more complicating games?

By basic he means BASIC - Beginners All-purpose Symbolic(Or is it syntactic?) Instruction Code.

It's a family of versatile programming languages.

My project is sort of a turn based strategy game from a platform perspective. If you can't picture what I mean, then you'll justh ave to wait and see if I actually finish it, because I'm known for dropping projects when I get bored with them.

Depending on what compiler you have you can get on-line tutorials in C

I have used (some search along the lines of) "Learn C for Microsoft Visual C version 5 in 24 hours"

Cool, but I need the programs to write C, in fact, I can always go back a stage and learn something different
