    what compiler are you using. Its compiler specific. in dev C++ its is in project->project options->general and choose the icon you want.

    that is what your talking about right?

    It's called an API.

    Look up:

    OpenGL
    DirectX
    Win32

    ok i'm totally confused. You don't want to change the icon of your .exe's , you don't want to make GUI programs , you don't want to use APIs , but you want to make a game that is "not a game" but recieve input ????!!

    Maybe "yeah" doesn´t know what a GUI means.

    Hint: www.google.com search with "define:GUI"

    I'd suggest you stick to learning the language (which you can do perfectly well with just console programs) before embarking on making glossy (but buggy) GUI programs.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    You can make it like looking that port. And all that commes from it. You do System("somefile.bmp"). And computer will open it in defoult viewer!

    Alright, enough with the damn system calls. That's not programming, you might as well just write batch files.

    yeah, you need to learn the language. I have just reviewed your posts and it appears that you are really new to this. Check out this site's tutorials

    After you get the language down, you will be able to move onto bigger and better things. This will additionally help you to ask smart questions

    I am not trying to be rude or mean but if you do not know the fundamentals you will succeed in doing nothing but becoming extremely frustrated. (and p i s s off Salem )

    i don't think most standard compilers support programmers with more than 4 red boxes - Misplaced

    Such pointless tricks ceased to be interesting or useful when we came down from the trees and started using higher level languages. - Salem
