    Hey all!
    I was a little inactive in this forum for week or less.. because I was in poker with some good profit hehe! I had one journal, but I failed it, since I didn't had good nishe to earn passive money. Now I want to introduce You my second journal:
    15 Years old teen becoming a pro games programmer in 750 DAYS!

    Now about my programming skills etc:
    I am programming C++ language from 13 years I think, got few real books, studied them all hehe I love to create program which works well, but I am only creating simple math apps. Now I did a little break (Study, money, poker, some life's problems etc) with this language, and I decided to continue it 3x better.
    My archievements:
    I didn't had any good software, maybe just simple paint program with few functions hehe. This year I won 1 place in programming competitions, but there weren't so many students to competite.
    My GOAL:
    My goal is very hard! I want to proffesionaly program games with C++ OpenGL, I studied this graphical programming few dayz, and I liked it. And my second goal is to make FPS shooter game in ~2 years. Know, two years to learn OpenGL is too short, but I'll do my best. I think I am writing too long so I' ll start studying and creating my first game :)

    About my studying:
    http://www.opengl-tutorial.org/ <- I am reading those tutorials for start, these are very great to start off!
    Will make game similar to this:
    <b>
    But with my own, unique code.

    Ok, today I'll start my new project, wish me good luck :)
    Regards,
    lietuvis002

    Instead of coding everything from scratch, choose already available 'open source' game libraries. Will save you a lot of time and effort.

    Hello, thanks a lot for tip, but I don't know about it, the coding from scratch will teach me more things, I like to create things from nothing :)

    Yea I agree with you. I started game programming a few months back, at first I thought of creating my own game engine, but then it became so hard, I left it and started using LibGDX.

    750 days to make a FPS game? With FPS Creator or Genesis3D you can make one... what, in a day?

    Day #1

    Studied: ~20 mins.

    I will study at night, because needed to go to dentist, worked IM, had to play poker tournament etc.. I think I learned some new commands in OpenGL and talked with another games programmer who is very good here, with 3 years experience.

    I wish for your good luck. It may be challenging to create a game from scratch, but it will make you understand the coding better and you will not be bounded by limitations that will existed if you create a game using game makers.

    You replied to a 2,5 year old thread with a banned OP. You realized that, right?
