    I think Allegro is easier to understand than Win32 API. Allegro can be found at http://www.talula.demon.co.uk/allegro/, there is a Allegro package for Dev-C++ out there somewhere, search google.

    In terms of ease and power, C++ is the best language all around. Java is more robust, but it has nowhere near the creative freedom of C++. It definitlely does not have the raw speed of C++.
    Doom wasnt that run in dos?
    API graphical processes are low-level functions that access the hardware directly via assembly language and Mode 13h or ModeX. Most DOS based games were done in this fashion when no API's were available to perform these low-level functions. If you want to write your own low-level functions and develop API's learn assembly. Else, learn DirectX or OpenGL.

    SDL is a good 2D library that hides the complexities of other API's from the coder, and it can be used alongside OpenGL for 3D. Both are highly portable as well.

    Hope this helps.

    your Game still has a weakness. You have to make sure that the Ai doesn't put a piece where it would help the opponent to win next round. Hava look at my connect 4 game. Or..hav u alreadY?

    I got the AI beat on my second game for me going first, first game for AI going first.

    If you go first:
    Move 1: 4
    Move 2: 2
    Move 3: 6
    Move 4: 3
    Move 5: 4
    Move 6: 5

    You Won!

    If AI goes first:
    Move 1: 2
    Move 2: 6
    Move 3: 3
    Move 4: 4
    Move 5: 6
    Move 6: 5

    You Won!

    Well done Vicious. But I always beat the AI.
    Current projects:
    1) User Interface Development Kit (C++)
    2) HTML SDK (C++)
    3) Classes (C++)
    4) INI Editor (Delphi)

    Thanks everyone.

    And as far as the AI goes...

    I didnt plan on making it invincible.... or extremely difficult for that matter.

    I wanted a AI that would play... Make a few... er several mistakes and lose sometimes.... and win sometimes.
