    Text-Based Games in Windows.

    I'm done alot of windows console programming, creating a number of Text-Based RPGs, now I'm looking into making these games in a windows GUI. Basicly I want a Window with the main "feature" being a text box where the game plays. I've played around a little with the MFC but I don't see any way to make the text box run like a console app. Any information would be helpfull.

    Are you sure you don't want console graphics? That just makes more sense as a "next step" for you.

    Try using the gdi to paint straight on to the window.
    Of course it does mean you have a bit more work to do if you wan't to make it able to copy and paste . . . . . .
