    All advanced games are in C/C++. However, a mighty tool is always hard to handle, so be prepared that it won't be easy.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Anything is possible.. It's all up to you. C++ isn't a 'product' like VB or JavaScript.. very few things are built into it. The standard header files are all that seperates you and having to write countless lines of code to create common functions you'll find in other languages.
