Hello First off, let me say that I did not post this in the game programming forum because I feel this is more of a general issue then game related. I have made a system for how my game handles world entities but im not sure if its the best I could use. Basicly, all derived entity classes of CEntity have functions for loading sub classes, such as void AddMesh(char*type,pos,rot) this function then creates a new instance of the type specified if(type == "player") temp = new CPlayer()... then this new instance is stored in a stl list. A class called CEntityManager then does operations for this global list such as delete all, draw all, update all etc. These functions are then called in the apps main loop. Is that the best way I could handel a oop base system?

Yes.. you can put the update function in the game-loop, but you can also put different update routines in different threads.

also, try not to compare char* pStr with if(pStr == "bla"), use strcmp()==NULL instead
