    VC++ tutorials

    I'm not sure if this is in the right spot, but i have two questions.

    1. Are there any good vc++ tutorials out there?

    2. How do I get a variable from a game and use it for my purposes?


    This is another question, but just a general question: what are api calls and how do i use them?

    Yes

    Are you sure it's a variable you're trying to extract from a game? What good would it do you to get a number or string from a game? I guessing you worded this wrong and you want to rip tiles or sound effects, etc? What exactly are you trying to get from what game?


    This is another question, but just a general question: what are api calls and how do i use them?
    Functions that are part of the Windows API (application programming interface). ie: GetPixel, timeGetTime(), WriteFile(), etc.

    Thank you very much, this helps a lot! What i meant on the second question was like pulling out the object or person that moves so that i can control him.
