darkBASIC, im a newbie!

darkBASIC, im a newbie!

darkBASIC, im a newbie!

please help me to understand the simple things about ex.) Varibles, real numbers. These are parameter right? and varibles are design to keep some numbers stored as for an example: A=1 + 2
that means that the letter A is number 3.
Thats all i understand and the concept of parameter, but just little....

Please give me some tips to start my one 3D game, from scratch!

RE: darkBASIC, im a newbie!

Yep, basically a variable simply holds a value.  In my understanding, generally, a parameter is a variable (or value) that is passed to a function for the function to perform some sort of operation on it.

As for tips to start a 3d game, the best advice is to read through the tutorials and help files.  The DB creators have done an excellent job in making the help files easy to understand with sample code associated with each command.  Also, have a look at sample code written by other DB programmers.  Try the DarkBasic forum over at www.darkbasic.co.uk (or .com) if you haven't already - there are plenty of people who can help out with any problems you are having.  It also receives a lot more posts than this board on the subject!

Be warned, though.  DB programming may be easier than C/C++, etc.. but it's still NOT simple!

RE: darkBASIC, im a newbie!

Yes and by the way a 3D game is very hard to make. You should start off on small aplications such as screensavers and passwords, then start on 2D games, then when youre ready, go on to 3D
