c++ game for practice
I have recently started learning C++, I am a decent programmer with a major skill in php. I decided that in order to test out my skills I wanna develop a small game for the fun of it.
I have the concepts all drawn out and some of the coding complete. I was going to see what some of you thought would be the best way to store information to bring back into the game.
Example: tracking a user's data. Being able to press save and exit out then come back and assume his saved place.
Would it be better to use a mysql database or files??Notice: If you post a problem and it gets fixed, please remember to go back and place it as solved. ;)
I always recommend the HEAD First series of books for learning a new coding language. ^_^
