I gave up on that xErath because I didn't understand it. I am now using This because it works and makes sense. But I am not into graphics yet, I'm starting out with very simple games (text based) and once I get everything worked out I will move to graphics.
iain the code you gave me doesn't work for some reason. I have conio.h, and am using Turbo C witch is (I believe) is a Borland compiler. I get the error message
I am simply typing as you said
Undefined symbol '_NOCURSOR' in function main
Undefined symbol '_NORMALCURSOR' in function main
in a specific place and it doesn't work.
Maybe it's because of Turbo C. Do you know if you have to pay to download Borland C++? I have been wanting to get that.
xErath by the way your method with locating the cursor won't work with the way I am animating the bullets, I think. A copy of my source code is here.
