    Question Rephrase of a question.

    I want to make a game that will look like the Super Mario Bros.C++ for computer. Please tell me how to take BMP's and make them into a game like that.

    functions that come to mind:

    BitBlt()
    SetDIBits()
    CreateCompatibleBitmap()
    CreateCompatibleDC()
    GetDC()
    ReleaseDC()
    SelectObject()
    DeleteDC()
    ReleaseDC()

    if you learn those you should have a pretty good understanding of how to do it.


    edit: just added a couple more funcs

    as for making bitmaps...you aren't likely to find a graphics editing program that you can't make a bitmap with. Try Windows Paint, for instance. It comes bundled with Windows.
    Away.

    I can make a bitmap,

    I want to animate the bitmaps and add actions and functions using the keyboard like j=jump and a stage area. Please help. Oh, and bubbles with messages coming out from the characters. How do I do this or where can I find a FREE tutorial on this.
