It's also important to mention that once you understand the logic of coding, 75% of the battle is behind you. Unfortunately, that can't be book taught. You will learn all the other things, including syntax with time and practice, but if you can't think in the way you computer will try to understand the code you are writing, you won't be able to do anything with the syntax you learn
I wish learning to code was that easy.
Buying huge books and reading them doesn't always work best... most of them are hard to understand. Taking classes like everyone said is probably the best way to do it.
We have C++ classes at my school, but I don't have the prerequisites to take 'em yet, I'm still in Visual Basic.

Yea I believe that I can take classes for coding at my school, so the best coding language I can take is C++ if I want to use it for half life right? Silly me thinking that half life would have its own coding language. Okay thank you all for you help and sorry blade for not closing my tread like dmz did...
wow thats depressing. I though i could just buy a book and be coding mods for HL within the week im joking, but you say that its almost impossible to leanr to code without taking classes? that IS depressing because my high school doesnt have them and ive never even heard of any available lessons. I will try with a book for now and if that works then i will laugh at all you people who cant learn from books
