    quick question about textcolor

    how would you go about changing the text colour output in your c++ program,
    i read that you can use the textcolor(); function in conio.h but that doesn't work.
    i'm using microsoft visual c++.
    any ideas?

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    // ...
    SetConsoleTextAttribute( GetStdHandle( STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE ), Number from 0 to 255 );
    Only on Windows.
    From C to shining C++!

    Great graphics, sounds, algorithms, AI, pathfinding, visual effects, cutscenes, etc., etc. do NOT make a good game.
