    If you don't know what graphics are, and can't make something out from those sites then I don't think you're ready for graphics...

    I'd suggest that you begin learning more about the C++ language by programming some console programs, then progress to writing simple windows before learning to deal with graphics. If you don't have the basics of C++ down, there's almost no way to start learning graphics.

    I'm 15. Get a good book, you'll be fine (check the other thread you posted in; 2 good reccomendations there)

    and i sort of own a company i need to make a game for it
    Sorry, but that's pretty lame.

    Anyways... enough flaming from me.
    Console just means that it's sort of like a dos program, except it's running in Windows (like dos prompt). Again, get a good book and you should be up and running in no time.

    P.S. if, char, and int are statements (or something like that), not functions. scanf() is a function, though.
    Just Google It. √

    More of what? Functions? Well, there's around 999999 more, and then if you stick with programming long enough you'll probably make another 9999, or if you're some kind of crazy guru, you might make 99999 more
