    I reckon it's the compiler in the end, maybe I should find something better suited to DirectX programs. I'm compiling it with Visual Studio 2005 Beta 2.

    Well, I'm going to give that a rest for the time being, and play around with Java a bit more, it seems I'm going to need it.

    Visual studio is great if they didn't screw around with stuff and turn everything around. If they kept everything standard, it'd work. Like wcout. supposedly it works on other compilers, just not visual studio. Who's fault is that?

    As for your studio.h thing... it's stdio i do believe... if not, copy it from a previous version of visual studio.

You need to flush the buffer to the file before you close it, but that's pretty easy so I omitted that short code. The only thing I'm wondering is how to stop the excess bits from being read, in an elegant way. (That would be the other half of the problem, bitwise reading, what I'm talking about now)

    Anyone think we should make a rules list for talking to a coder weather you're a coder or not? (Not a serious thing, just a fun thing.)

    #1: If you don't like it, read up and make your own.

    #2: Don't ask for another release when the version number is post scripted with the word "final".

    Common guys, add more. lol

    lol, sounds like fun . I'm always up for suggestions on this place (This isn't the most popular forum here but I like to think there is some reason for it )

    In other news I just took my first C class, that was fun, and I think I realised how many mistakes I was making before lol.

    Well theo, if you get good with direct x with C++ you might be able to make a full tut on it sometime and get some of us console junkies out of this looping tutorial list... (Not much i can do with the winapi tut considering that it dosn't include input...) Just a sugestion, it should also test your understanding of it, but i don't think we should worry about that now. If you have any trouble with your classes you know who all to ask.

EDIT: I have returned that 3D Direct book for the time being, and have gotten out a maths book called "Mathematics for 3D game programming and computer graphics" which covers a lot in terms of matrices vectors and other technical stuff which I feel would be better if I looked it up now rather then later.

    lol, I decided to do a crappy text Adventure game while I'm doing my crunch study session No inputs as yet, but I'm sure most of you coders can see the way this is

    One short word of advice before you go mad over a typical error.
    scanf reads from a BUFFER. Meaning that everything you input will be stored, but not necessarily interpreted. scanf only reads further info from the input stream (keyboard, more generally stdin - short for STandarD INput) if the buffer is empty. Try the following code:

    Umm, having trouble, I cannot find anything that can give me any info reading discs, so I'm going to continue with that.

    Stuff I'm currently working on

    I wouldn't put this a thread of its own, so here:
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3PAFF4T9
    A simple platfromer game, work-in-progress version. Loads the level and tileset from file, collision's already working almost perfectly (made some optimizations to the code that makes it simpler, but it produces weird results in a select few cases), graphic handling is working the way I want it now, also has scrolling. Cursors to move the char, I/J/K/L to move the camera. Images originally from Cave Story. Written in C, uses openGL and glut.

    EDIT: New version! Gotta tweak the physical constants a bit, but it looks better already than constant linear velocity.
