What do I need to program a multiplayer game? Are there different kinds of tools to use? What are the better or best ones to use? Is it complicated? Well, I hope you can answer at least a few of these questions for me. Thanks!

First off, you need to learn WinSock (or its equivelent (sp?)). I found a great tutorial on it here on gamedev. Go to the resource section (programming) and then type neural net in the search box. Due to some messup with the search engine, 4 entries from the bottom will be on called Roll your own intranet. It is a very good tutorial on winsock.

Okay, winsock and direct play? What would be a few of winsock''s equivalents? Do I have to know one of those 2 languages?

WinSock and DPlay are not languages. You''ll program them both in C or C++, depending on which way you swing.

WinSock is quick ''n'' easy, DPlay is hard but (generally) more fool-proof.

When your wrapper is done you should end up with funtions looking like:

pNetwork->SendPacket(&p)
and
CSOMEPACKET p;
pNetwork->GetPacket(&p);
if (p.Score > 1000) {
you win!
}

Good luck!
