    I am new to most all graphics coding and in fact have not had to code in c++ in about 8 years.

    You might want to look into C#, it would work well here. How large is the overall project, are you moving 'tiles' round like in a shuffle game, which platforms are you targeting...?

    I am trying to knock the dust off my coding IE. My classes and Templates. So I need a basic Programmers GFX to make sure they work. Overall I am wanting to try to make something similar to the old Star Trek dos games with the little ship icon and some planets and sectors to "warp" to. All in windows. I'm sure its been done but I need the practice.
