    Where do I start?

    Hello,

    I am new to UDK, (not new to programming, I've got about 3 years of experience with C++, and 4 years with Game Maker) but I know how to use the level editor, content browser, that isn't a problem.
    I have Visual Studio 2008, and nfringe installed. I have the non-registered version of UDK.
    I want to make my own game, not a ut level or expansion. So my question is: where do I start, because all tutorials I found were about UT, not a game. So If anyone knows any good tutorials or sites, please post

    Any help is appreciated;

    You start by extending Pawn, PlayerController and GameInfo - that gives you a blank game class which spawns a player and a player object. The rest is up to you.

        Here's where you can find a lot of tutorials to all sorts of problems.
        http://udkc.info/index.php?title=Tutorial_Portal

        For your specific purpose, go to Level Design > Beginning your game

          Also, for UDK, the language you need experience in is UnrealScript, not C++. So I'd look into tutorials into how to use that proprietary language as well.

            Which I've heard is similar to javascript, so if you know one it helps with the other. UDKC is a great place to start for sure.. Youtube has a ton of stuff.

                Then you're in luck, as you'll quickly notice, UnrealScript shares a lot of similarities with Java. I'm not familiar with nfringe, but a number of people seem to like it for UnrealScripting. If you haven't already browsed through it, the UDK documentation can be very helpful. You sound like you would be interested in the Gameplay Programming UDN Portal, which discusses actors, gametypes, etc.

                  Not to state the obvious, but the UnrealScript Home on the UDN has tons of info.
