    Well then that'l be:

    Code:
     void textprintf(screen,font,10,10,makecol(255,255,255),"%i",score);
    
     // screen means that whe will be drawing this text to the screen
     // font means whe are using the standerd bios font (8x8)
     // makecol(r,g,b) means the color using red green and blue (totally white in this case)
     // For the last 2 parts you need to know how printf() works in
     c/c++
