    Developing stone age games

    Do you know any places on the net, which has information about developing games in pure C/C++?, thatís without using Direct X and stuff of that kind.

    Thank you very much.

    "Pure" C/C++ does not have any graphics support.

    Check your compiler's documentation.

    Some compilers have <graphics.h> or something similar which will have functions like CreateRectangle() and CreateCircle(), etc.

    But in general, graphics in C++ is an advanced topic. And, like Dante Shamest said, it's not part of the language standard.

    What do you mean by stone age games, exactly? You can make simple games for MS Windows with animation without DirectX etc. The Sams Teach Yourself Game Programming in 24 hours book develops various examples, for instance something along the lines of the old Missile Command type game.

    I don't know of specific web resources, though there may well be some. Otherwise, try the Sams book.
