Hi I''m reading Michael Morrison''s Teach Yourself Game Programming in 24 Hours. I understand C++ coding and the need for header files, resource files and a game engine, but the book doesn''t seem to explain how one links all these files together and run them? Can anyone enlighten me? All contributions gratefully accepted. Panther2 Theodoreodeluga

If you're using an IDE such as MSVC++ or Dev-C++, it's just a matter of including all the files in your project and then pressing the "Build" button. A nice .exe file is then created.

Resource files (I'm assuming you mean maps or something?) are just loaded and used from within the C++ code.

he prolly means more along hte lines of .rc files for accelerator keys/icons/etc.

Those can be including using an IDE such as MSVC++ also
