    Thanks ff but I actually already have that site listed. What I did was get all the links 23yrold3yrold offers in his sig at allegro.cc

    Once I get a few more examples I'm going to put all of them into html on my website then just provide links to the page.

    How many of you think this is actually going to be useful? Hopefully one of the mods will make it "sticky" that way everytime an Allegro user has a question that can easily be answered can just look in this thread. IMO, too many times people are asking questions that can easily be answered through the docs or examples. Maybe this will solve it.

    Hey, if you are having a website with Allegro example, I could code some. Nothing fancy, moving sprites, animating sprites, using timers. Simple stuff I could code.

    Josh, yeah, that would be great; the more the better. Right now I'm still working on putting the first example into html. I'm not sure if I'll get it done tonight or not, depends if/when I get tired. Here is the link to the site.

    What do you mean? I have used quite a few web providers and so far Angelfire seems to be the best; I'm not sure what you have against them.

    please mention in the top of your post what allegro version(s) this information is specific to.
    Where did you get the quote "stuff" from, and how is it relevant to your posting? The version is 4.02, I believe.

    The ad at the top of your page does not bother you? I get free (ad free too) webspace with my ISP, though I don't really use it. Maybe I should.....

    I guess that does detract away from the site, but all in all it isn't too bad.

    I used to use Angelfire, but now I use Tripod. There are several out there that don't have any ads or anything, but I need to have Frontpage Entensions support.

    Well, if you look at my first post you'll notice that I have already transformed my two examples into html. Please give comments on how well you think the code is colored. I used special colors for special items. Also, any comments on the code in the tutorials would be great. As well as, if you want to submitt one of your own tutorials.

    Btw, I plan on including more information, than just the example code, with each tutorial.
