Ok, let me explain, then I will ask the question. I go to gamedev.net and download some of the user-created games on there. I look at these things and wonder how they got all of those things to happen. MAIN QUESTION: How do you get your program to run OUT OF THE DOS CONSOLE, and make it come up like an actual game. For example, I wrote this tic tac toe game that, of course, runs in the dos console. How do I make it so it pops up like an actual game, with nice big colorful words, and pictures perhaps. Like an actual game. How do I do this?
