    I made a game too.

    Planet Invaders

    This is a very simple game and is totally depended on luck. I did not make it in C or C++ but rather in VB.

    Visual Basic is much easier to make than C or C++. I know it is not as powerful but, what the heck, it is so easy. Anyidiot could learn it in a couple days (the basics)

    Download the game

    Your link didn't work.

    I started with VB, too ( back in the dark ages.... ). If you really want to get a good handle on C++, rewrite your VB game in C++. You already know the logic required, you just need to work out the proper syntax.

    i dunno. my link should work.itried it from another pc and it did work...
    when u click on the link, it will automatically ask either of the following:
    - "Open from current location" or "Save to disk"
    - the location where you want to save it to...

    you have to dwnld it first.
    anyway i dont know anything about c or c++. Heck i dont even have the program... i just uploaded the file, it doesnt have to be c++ right?

    Actually, WinRAR will also work for extracting *.zip files, and to link to a *.exe, just upload it to a website.

    I know how to download a file. I also know to download it to play it. This is what I got from your link (the original *.exe).

    Downloaded the *.zip. I'm guessing you used a random number generator to set the number of troops you can deploy each turn (would have been cool to choose the number of troops to deploy and then have a random number generator use that number as a seed to determine damage). What is the purpose of the big blue square that just sits there on the right side of the screen?

    You got it... i did use a random number generator, but still, it is not exactly a random number - thats the problem with VB, it has two strings of random numbers each. So it is one string or the other.

    The big blue square has no real purpose... i just used it to fill up the space that was empty. lol
