  1. Thanks a bunch for your replies scope2229 and samme! I appreciate your thoughtful responses. It does almost feel like all developers are speaking an entirely different language though (and I'm actually not as much of a tech dummy as I'm sure I sound!) There obviously has to be a knowledge base and vocabulary for any kind of communication and maybe I'm just not there yet. Regardless, although I definitely appreciate your responses it wasn't really what I was looking for except for confirmation that I did indeed need to install a local server and that Live Preview in Brackets wasn't a substitute for that. I actually didn't find it especially straightforward to install the WAMP server either but once I did, I was able to find the "web root" that the Phaser Getting Started Guide refers to and get the Hello World code to show up. I started a document with my notes and will share it here in case it's helpful to other beginnery-beginners! Here is A Phaser Getting Started Guide for REAL Beginners. Please do let me know if I've got anything incorrect in there. You should be able to comment.
  2. I realize this is a tremendously dumb question but I've been struggling for months (intermittently) with just getting the files set up so I can start doing some Phaser tutorials. I've read and tried to follow the Get Started guide, but being new to development in general I'm having a really hard time understanding what they're asking me to do. Where I'm at: I have downloaded phaser 3.zip and put it onto the hard drive of my computer, and unzipped it. I have installed the editor Brackets, which has a live preview that (I think - but am not sure) I can use instead of a local web browser. I have purchased a Phaser course from Udemy, originally created I think by Zenva, but it's not been especially helpful so far with this very first "set up" section. I have also completed a basic Javascript course provided by Kahn Academy (which was a great course btw), but since that was all in-browser, it didn't require all this setting up of editors and all that. The problem: I don't know where to put the downloaded phaser 3 folder on my computer, and in relation to the html file the tutorial wants me to create with Brackets. I don't know which part of the downloaded Phaser 3 folder I need to "put in" to Brackets in order for the files I'm creating to reference the Phaser framework. I do know how to open a folder in Brackets, but if there's a reference type connection I'm supposed to make, I don't know how to do that part. The getting started guide says something about finding the web root, which I don't understand, and can't find instructions about when I've tried googling it.
