    You won't get anything close to that from forums or newsgroups.
    To become fully competent usually requires years of learning
    and experience. A Computer Science degree is often a prereq
    if you're serious.

    It's customary and recommended to learn how to program in
    the language of choice first (e.g. - C++). Then proceed to
    learn the advanced topics of algorithms, graphics, math, etc.

    Textbooks are virtually mandatory, Tutorials can help if
    taking formal courses isn't possible.

    >I dont have any knowlodge in programming ...

    Then don't try to jump in the deep end. Learn how to do
    things correctly from the start. Be prepared for a long
    and steep learning curve. If you don't have the time or
    patience, find another project.

    Use your favourite search engine to find tutorials.

  • Maybe you could start with this  :o)

    http://www.amazon.com/Windows-Programming-Dummies-Andr%C3%A9-LaMothe/dp/0764503375

    Seriously, search the net for DirectX samples.  You will need some programming experience and likely C++ will be the language of choice if your games are video oriented since you'll be closer to the screen with native code.
