    Talking New Game: Escape from Alcatraz

    This is a board game I had two weeks to do. I wanted to "wow" my math teacher (I'm in eighth grade and there's no programming class, so I 'm the only one that can do this), by making this instead of a normal board game. It is my first Win32 game, with bitmaps, and only two sound effects, played only once in the game. The code is bad, I know. Just gimee some feedback


    Try it out!!!!!!!!!

    The graphics could use some serious improvement, and it needs a notification for when you get an alibi card... and it needs to only have one thread about it.
    Away.

    Well, I did say it was my first win32 game, and considering it uses bitmaps I drew I'd have to agree with you. Yeah, I never thought about an alert, but its a good idea. What is a thread?
    Anyways, Anyone else want to leave feedback? I want to know how else to improve it.

    just use MessageBox() for when you get an alibi. You already have one.

    A thread (for what you mean) is a topic or message on the board. I'm talking about cprogramming.com here. You posted two seperate threads about it for no apparent reason at the time.
    Away.

    The only probelm I saw was that when I would minimize the game and then restore it, the graphics didn't redraw.
    Give me a bad reputation!!!
