    1) sorry i speak english.
    2) You can use functions in <ctime> to help you here.
    3) Sleep(DWORD milliseconds) in <windows.h>

    Right, i got someone to rephrase it for me...

    got the 2nd and 3rd answers from Stoned_Coder, thx

    Now the 1st...

    1) How can I make a certain function work (for example, making something move, etc.) at the same time that the getch(); function is requesting me to press something ?

    thx guys, I appreciate it

    look up nonstandard function kbhit() which on some compilers resides in <conio.h> this is a non standard header and function but most compilers offer it. itt may be known as _kbhit(). This will allow you to check for a keypress before calling getch therefore when no key pressed you can do something else. Failing that there is always threads!
