    What compiler does it say to use?
    Obvioulsy if your using third part libraries for graphics and the like, DevC++ won't be much help. Check your book, or list some of the headers they have you calling. And you might want to check out Allegro.

    my two cents

    Also, look into MinGW Studio. It uses basically the same compiler as Dev-C++ but in a MSVC++ like IDE.

    actually it says in the book if you dont have money to use bloodshed dev-c++.the book seems to try to stay away from any of the graphics part of game programming.the main header file the book uses is windows.h.one of the compilers that i tried to download that the book said worked, was the borland c++ one but i need a key i'll try to the demo of mvc++ but its very odd.i usally use my digital mars complier cause it has worked with alot of the things i worked on but it only compiles the first lesson on the book.all the book says is that a good c++ compile will work so i need all possiblecompilers that could work if not then i'll have to save my money for a very long time to by a compiler that works.
