    Talking Demo PacMan Clone

    Here's an incomplete demo-version program of a PacMan-type game I'm making. Read the "Manual.txt" file included in the zip attachment before you play, as there are some major differences between real PacMan and this PacMan. For instance, as of now I have no ghosts, and the challenge is to get through the maze without running into walls. Harder than it sounds, believe me .
    So load it up and tell me what you think, and criticism is welcomed (though do try and not get too rude about it lol) as this is a demo version of the game and I'd like ideas on what I can do to fix it up before I totally finish and release it to you all (by a different title, of course!)

    It's missing the MFC42D.dll...the .exe can't run w/out it...
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }

    I'm proud to say I'm missing that one too

    Lol I know. The manual says you need that stuff. But I'll attach all those stupid DLLs in the next post.

    Why don't you build a stand-alone exe, which doesn't need such runtime DLLs?

    Questions

    I dont use Microsoft compilers.

    I have Borland C++ 5.5 (the free version, for the poor guy)

    All the programs that I wrote so far run in DOS box. Only
    one of them included windows.h

    Do you think my programs need a DLL too ?
    How do I make Stand Alone EXEs in BC++ 5.5 ?

    I also had problems using the same code from one compiler
    to the other compiler. For example, delay is not recognized
    by Dev C++ but works fine with older versions of Turbo C++.

    How do I make the programs stardard such that if I copy and paste the code from one compiler to the other compiler, they compile smoothly without giving errors ? Isn't there a stardard set of functions/commands that work in almost ALL the compilers ?

    (too many questions, oops..)

    As a matter of fact, I was planning on converting the MFC program to stand alone. My completed program will be MFC-free. I only used MFC originally because it was easier for me to use; I don't have much experience with normal Windows and I have issues with creating the window. I'll convert it today.

    Also, thanks for the good comment.

    Technically if you only write standard code, all ANSI C compilers should work without errors or differences.....

    I like the game

    I'm not sure how much I can help here as I have MVC++. But when you create a new project, there must be some way that you can select something like "Create an empty project". That, I believe, would be stand alone.
