    Thumbs up Game test

    I am making what is going to be my first game, ryt now it is very basic, but I'd like you to download it and tell me what you think. I know it is extremley simple, but i'm rather new and proud of what I've done (the acceleration feature which was very difficult to me to get it to work).

    Tell me what you think!!

    PD: If you want the source code e-mail me.

    If 'here' is pronounced as 'hear', why 'there' isnt pronounced as 'dear'??

    What is it supposed to do? In fact I'm a little bit nervous about what it did. It did absolutely nothing! I would really like to see the source code, because right now I'm not ruling it out that your program is a virus.

    I guess I better go do a virus scan. Then again it is my fault, because I should know better than running random .exe.

    Sorry if I'm being too cautious.

    hehe, you should've tried it in MS DOS prompt so you would see the error,

    anyway the error was BGI Error: Graphics not initialized('use initgraph')

    well i guess you were using the BGI huh? shouldn't you be using that nowadays?

    First Game(moreso)

    Sorry, what I posted on the thread "Correction" should be posted here, I always mistake 'new thread' with 'post reply'...

    Well, the thing is my 'game' is not a virus, is just a very simple graphics thing, but for me it is a challenge because I'm new to C.
    In the zip are the BGI files required plus the exe.

    Download it and feedback me please!!

    PD:If you want the source code tell me.
    PD: In short I'll add new features to make a it more game-like.

    i strongly recommend that you should make it so that when esc is pressed it exits. pretty cool for now, like how the circle speeds up when you hold the key and that it doesn't clear out the writing at the top when you take the circle over it. pretty cool, keep it up.

    i also recommend you make it move faster at the beginning, and i think its good for being a beginner but try to make it into a game sooner than later...
