    I thought I'd post here rather than start a new topic, but would Allegro work with C++? I only found tutorials in C...

    C++ has pretty much everything that C does, so you can use allegro with c++. The homepage for Allegro is http://www.talula.demon.co.uk/allegro/. I do not know how to use Allegro with Visual C++, but I am sure you could find something searching google.

    I like www.allegro.cc , it is updated more often.

    And if you look on the internet a little you can find tutorials on installing it. If you are too lazy to do that, find the pre-compiled self-installer.
