    Little screenie of my WIP

    This screen is nothing to be happy about, but it shows that I am finally making noticeable progress. Well hopefully it doesn't look to horrible. It isn't much yet. I have mainly been working on rewriting the HGE renderer for myself, and working on my sound engine, which I am proud of. Well here it is anyway.

    Cool. Is that a face?
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    How do you create the console window as well as the directX window?

    There's a windows API to create a console. AllocConsole or something like that.

    Just remember to FreeConsole() when you're done. GetStdHandle() would be worth looking at too.

    Actually for the console window I just made it a console project, and then made the window inside of it. That way I can use console for debug. Also keeps from having to worry about the console memory.
    Yea it is a face on the left hand side. Hopefully I'll get my menus and stuff working within the next few days.

    Edit:

    @h3ro: Malignant Trials is a story I have been writing for a long long time, so kinda a final fantasy(4-6) kinda of look, but with a lot sharper graphics, and hopefully some cool effects. Nice thing though is I have the battle system done(almost), just have to port it to the DirectX graphics instead of console text. (So basically graphic-ize) the whole thing.

    Takes forever, because I can't find any art unique enough, and I'm not an artist so it takes awhile. Thanks again for the input
