    Question VB + C = possible?

    A friend of my and I would like to create a joint game project. We were wondering if it could be possible to write parts of it in VB while others in C? Yet it be able to be used in the sense of one executable file? Could this be done through reading and writing to a file or memory?

    thanks

    The normal way for this would be making the user interface in VB and including a C dll that takes care of calculations.

    But I would really try to stay with one language when this is your
    first project. It is a mess to combine them, and needs some
    understanding of both languages.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
