Hello,

I am a begginer as well, but my advice would be not to worry about graphics or gui''s until you have the basic structure and Objects of the game working.

I think most of us don''t really care who started flame wars elsewhere, if you''re here to learn, all for the better.

There is absolutely no need to shout however, it basically just says you''re not very mature about it. (Plus you probably won''t get too many responses if you try to stomp your feet and go around demanding stuff)

Now, you say you don''t have time to start from scratch well, you''re gonna need time.
Second, have you made any games in the past because you''re kinda vague about asking for help here. What type of game are you looking to make, the next Tetris, a 2d side-scroller, 2d top-down FF clone? what?

Once you give us a more specific idea on what you''re looking for then we could perhaps help.

Smoo
BTW You really should look at the FAQ that Jerry put up:
http://games.cpbinc.com/faq/default.asp
And another PS I know you said this is your first game but what I meant about that was did you ever attempt to write any others (at least attempt)?
