Sorry if this is the wrong place for this post…

My background is with C++ and I am trying to get Cocos2d-x up and running while looking for some help initially running/using Cocos2d-x. So far a lot of the links I’ve found seem to be out of date with the latest version. Currently I’m reading the Programmer’s Guide, but I’m still not sure what I need to install to get the latest version of Cocos2d-x running with the goal of developing for Android and eventually iOS.

Also, I was looking at Cocos2d-x by Example: Beginner’s Guide - Second Edition (“https://www.amazon.com/Cocos2d-x-Example-Beginners-Guide-Second/dp/1785288857/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1473813033&sr=1-1&keywords=Cocos2d-x”). It seems to gotten good reviews, but does anyone if this is too out of date with the latest version of Cocos2d-x?

Thanks in advance!

Are you using Windows or OS X?

I read that book and found it relevant still.

For Android we have several docs that can help, developer’s preference:

http://cocos2d-x.org/docs/installation/Android-VisualStudio/index.html

http://cocos2d-x.org/docs/installation/Android-Studio/index.html
