    How to open multiple files?

    I am trying to make a game shell, i think the first step of this is to open the multiple DLL's etc, what function would i use to open files together?

    Also, does anyone know if when a game loads, it opens files in any particular order?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't think there's a way to open files "together". You have multiple file pointers to multiple opened files, however.

    Also, I think the only order in which games open their files is in order of dependance. AKA, file B needs file A, so open A first, etc...

    Lastly, chance your sig, you're going to get a lot of people angry...

    Yeah, as funny as a sig that says "DON'T USE CODE TAGS"

    Code:

    void J(char*a){int f,i=0,c='1';for(;a[i]!='0';++i)if(i==81){
    puts(a);return;}for(;c<='9';++c){for(f=0;f<9;++f)if(a[i-i%27+i%9
    /3*3+f/3*9+f%3]==c||a[i%9+f*9]==c||a[i-i%9+f]==c)goto e;a[i]=c;J(a);a[i]
    ='0';e:;}}int main(int c,char**v){int t=0;if(c>1){for(;v[1][
    t];++t);if(t==81){J(v[1]);return 0;}}puts("sudoku [0-9]{81}");return 1;}

    Appropriate? If you're complaining at the size of it then why is it enabled to make sigs this large? If you're complaining at the content then i can't really see how it's inappropriate, other than the fact that senior programmers would 'lol' their way across the floor at my amateur coding.

    I didn't think you were being serious about it genuinely offending people.

    @ Astra:

    in what context are you asking the question? are you trying to modify an existing game? Happy_Reaper was correct in saying that the only real universal requirement for the order in which to open files is by following dependancies. the rest is pretty much implementation specific.

    @ Happy_Reaper, manutd, Salem:

    no offense, but you guys seriously need to relax. i'm pretty sure his sig was intended as a joke, but even if it wasn't, just because int main is the "proper" form, doesn't mean anyone who prefers to use another form is some horrible idiot worthy of ridicule and ignoring. hands at 10 and 2 is the "proper" way to steer a vehicle, but i can probably count on one hand the number of people who actually drive this way - does that make the rest (including me and most, if not all, of you) stubborn idiots too?

    Yeah, im trying to make a program that runs a game, without any visuals coming up, so that in effect i could make it text based.

    For example, i run my program, it takes a few seconds to load the game, i make my own login screen in this window and it connects to the servers of the game, then be able to change equipment on my character (it's an RPG) just by typing a command (that i will have preprogrammed) entering a game room etc.

    I want to create this because a guy i spoke to had already done this, and sent me a screenshot which got me interested and now i want to know how its possible to make a program to act this way.

    that's what i was afraid of. to be honest, i don't think you're going to find much help with that task, because you're most likely breaking the game's end-user license agreement.
