      Can anyone tell me the best resources for learning Lingo 3d for games? Are there any online classes or courses?  Websites? books?

          Start with Dean Utian's Director tutorials - be sure to look through the resources section there. There's also DOUG - lots of articles in the archive there. There are a few useful books, but Google should have turned those up for you.

            Yeah this is a very good start. Next step is to find a online course with Game design Director 3D. Cant find any courses everything is only basic Director/lingo 8.5 or MX.

              You will find the online communities for Director your best source for Director specific information on Shockwave3D. However, if you want general instruction in developing games then you might be interested in this link: http://www.animationarena.com/how-to-become-a-video-game-designer.html

               

              I believe the reason you won't find official online courses for game development on a specific platform is that there are too many tools out there and it's more important to learn the fundamentals than any specific program because the programs are simply tools, applying the fundamentals is really the key. So, check out that link if you're really interested in game development. Otherwise, you can try these other forums:

               

              http://www.director-online.com

              http://www.directorforum.com

              http://www.adobe.com/support/director/3d_basics.html

               

              But a word of advise, if you're just starting out then you should be doing a lot of searching on the forums rather than posting because chances are most questions have probably been asked and answered before.

               

              Lastly, search the forums for posts asking for advice on books... there you'll find some of the titles of books published when it was Macromedia Director and you might be able to find some used ones being sold online at amazon or ebay... the thing to remember is that many (if not all) of the books are going to be out of print.
