Game Simulation Question !
Hello, i was wondering how i would start to go about running a program without it's visuals coming up.
For example: This is how the REAL game works - i click a game launcher, and it runs the game, starts the loadup screen, gathers all the files together etc. connects to servers.
What i want - Is a way to can create my own client, run it (visually just a program with an option to CLOSE GAME), and have it gather the files in my program directory (of the REAL game), but NOT to show up the REAL game in the taskbar as running. (but instead to just show my client program in taskbar)
I want to get it to run in a client program that i will make. Firstly - is this possible? Secondly - how would i start to make this? The language i would be using would be C++.
Thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction. :D
