And yet, after many attempts at moving things around and playing with SFML, I realize that I need to figure out the basics. Back to basics. Back to the drawing board.
When I first started learning Python, I got up and running with the basics quickly. I used Python the Hard Way. I learned all of the basics first. Then I went through a ton of tutorials on Youtube.
I build up a lot of confidence. So much that I went on to build my own game using Pygame and my knowledge of building classes. Object orienting programming in Python is a breeze! If Python could compile easily, I would still be using it.
Now I am stuck learning C++. And I am loving it! But there is a whole other layer of complication that comes with it. It is a fog to me now. Review the basics and I will be just fine.
For the next few weeks, I will be glancing over C++ tutorials and building simple applications. I need to find out how to do OO properly.
That’s all for now. Time for some sleep.
