    internet games? Mroe inside...

    Ok I remember somthing from along time ago about on an on-line arcade you could make. All you needed was some .exe games.

    Well I want to do this with some of my games and I didn't know were else to ask this....

    Does anyone know anymore about this, or how I could get my exe to play from a webbrowser.

    you could make a .NET c++ webform (.aspx). The agme would reside on your system, and the webpage would just use the exe on your computer. .NET supports multi threading so multiple instances wont be a problem. In order to do this though, you need XP Pro and IIS installed. If you want to go that route, I'll give you plenty of info how to do it.

    well I got xp home. And I want it so other people play it from the browser.

    I don't think that is what I am looking for.

    If you want to run games on the client-side, you could use Java Applets. It's not that hard to learn after C++. It's made to be easier for laymen to understand, so just make sure you don't make it too complex.
