    I don't know how you would be able to write a game as a team effectively without OOP. You should design the game using UML diagrams and assign object components to different team members. It's not as difficult to integrate objects that support encapsulation than it is to build individual public functions. You guys should all have OOP experience and know how to build and read system diagrams. That amounts to reading about 2-3 books and practicing with a couple small projects. Also what API are you using? Direct-X? Win32? Just curious. This is what prevents me from joining such a group. I don't know windows programming yet. I sure hope you will not use DOS-VM, because that sucks. I'm waiting to learn windows programming with the .NET class framework library.

    DA: i dislike how you throw my age around as if it really matters... do i act like a 15 year old? just because you are two or three years older than me doesn't meen that you can lord over me like some mythical beast. One of the benefits of the internet is that you can't immediately be judged by age, you have to prove that you are mature and responsible. I'd like to keep this liberty.

    So what, i'm 15, does that mean that its impossible for me to be more mature than most 18 year olds?

    I don't know what language. We all have to decide on this. I, personally, don't know OOP. After all, I'm a C programmer. Not C++. I know the basics as in how to write a class and access, but I'm not too familiar with inheritance and that whole bit.

    Why do it in BASIC? After all, this is a c programming board. That only makes sense to do it in C/C++.

    Oh, and I was thinking we can do Win32 API. We don't need the professional (well, not yet) graphics of DirectX or anything. How many know Windows programming? I'm learning it now. It's great, fun, and quite interesting! I recommend it.

    So do we decide on Win32 API? It has my vote.

    So, let's compile a list of members:

    -Generator
    -DavidP
    -Garfield
    --KEN-
    -maes

    If I'm missing anybody (sorry!!!), or anybody (maybe just one more) else wants to join, reply to this thread. We can continue to discuss this game.

    > I have charles petzold book

    LMAO, you guys are goiing to do a game using the windows API. Hate to burst your bubbles, but that is crazy, its way to slow. Until dirextx came out games were still made it dos.

    It depends on how many frames you need to draw. WinAPI can achieve the 30 FPS that is used by many games, for many resolutions. Doing 320x240 or even 640x480 at 30 FPS is achievable using WinAPI. You certainly would try not to have to redraw the whole screen every frame, but even fully redrawing is possible, given how fast today's machines are.
