[EDIT] haha VC++ 6.0 wont complie it
here is an example
static SDL_Surface* main_window; // here is the error
// the rest of my crap
Dunno if its VC++ 6.0 or iam not implmenting the static member right i dunno its late and i just worked all day ill get my book outa my truck in the morning..
What the book says static does is make that static member the same for all instances of the class which is great for making a min window in a video system class for SDL... but it wont compile.. ill re read teh section in the morning. night all
