    I would recomend visual c++ 6 (NOT .net). .Net is for networking, so if you want to make games go with c++ 6

    No - look for Visual Studio 6.0

    You could try ebay or MS's site or a dozen other sites for it.

    As much as I hate to take food out of Bill Gates' mouth, ahem...You can go to your local university book store (or out of town if you have to) and find Visual Studio 6.0 for a lot less than you would anywhere else. I bought Visual C++ 6 Pro for $99.95. I think that you can get the entire Visual Studio for something like 225, sometimes less!

    There are 3 or 4 versions:

    Introductory (sux0rs)
    Student (better)
    Professional (best, but a hell of a lot of money)

    one more I think, but dunno what it is.

    vC++6 does not allow you to write Standard C++ programs. VC++.net, the unmanaged compiler that is has more success in meeting the standard. If you don't know the difference between managed and unmanaged code however, than you don't know what I am talking about and you don't know that there is a better unmanaged compiler than VC++6. So in about a year or two you will understand what I am saying here and kick yourself.
