    Well as im just learning myself... the best place to start is:

    get yourself a good book on c / c++ programming language book / class and get familiar with programming in general before you start

    then check out this site.... which has everything you need to know on how to put together a ds game, or applications!

    I started with C / C++ as my first language... It didn't work too well. Now I'm ok with it.

    Sure you'll be able to make a few apps with C, but unless you know why it works, you wont get far.

    Start with Python programming, infact I think someone wrote a Python interpreter for the DS...

    Also, you're not going to make Kingdom Hearts for DS.

    Have you had any sort of experience in programming before?

    Because, if not, this type of project might be a bit too ambitious for you.

    Yes, I think you're a *bit* too ambitious on this one.

    A one man team cannot design a 'Kingdom Hearts' game. Not only would it take you years, but you have no idea about programming and everything that goes with it -- You'd need to do the art, music, design, programming, etc. I've made some *small* games, and those even take months. And I didn't start by saying 'I'm gonna make a game!', I started by doing very small projects to get myself accustomed to a language.

    I think you need to start with 'Hello World' [​IMG]

    It's called computer science for many good reasons. Practice for several years and show us your world. Good luck!
