  1. I first got my feet wet in this area with an old MS-Dos based game build engine for Duke Nukem 3D. I have been very interrested ever since. The most affordable I found was Game Studio. I havent bought the program yet, but I did download the trial and had a lot of fun creating with it. I am still planning on buying it in the futuer.
    Here's the link (I hope) to their site. See what you think.

  2. Auto desk. http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/index?siteID=123112&id=13567410
    Also for actually making a game, http://www.yoyogames.com/make a bit cheesy, 2d also, but it is a start =D.

    Take from a school... Ask a teacher, or call a school that does this stuff, and ask, or ask to speak to an instructor.

    Edit: I'll ask my Friend who was on the team that Made AvP2. He doesn't get on much, so it may be a while on that.
  3. I contacted a computer school and they advised me to do the following programs for game programming:

    3d studio max or maya
    C++ and directX
    soundforge
    aftereffects
    photoshop
    and a 3d renderer(dont know what it is, you can advise me on that)

    are these softwares good..

    for making a game like [farcry 1 or counter strike(for starters)]
  4. OR any other site you can suggest where i can get expert answers to my question?
  5. 3D rendering is Autodesk...

    Nope can't, my friend hasn't signed in yet....
