I know a large amount of Visual Basic/.NET and basic knowledge of C++ but I don''t know how to do Controls in C++. I''m not asking for a specific explaination of anything, but I just want to know of any good tutorials that can help me out. One thing I would like to know though, is what is "MFC"?

MFC is the old way to do Win32 with C++. If you already know VB.Net, then learning the Windows part of C++.Net should be very easy. They all share the same framework. You should look for a C++ tutorial instead.

no no, I don''t want to learn C++ .NET, I want to learn the old Win32 C++ because I want to use DirectX 8.0 (9.0 is too much of a hassle)

heh, for the programmer its more of a hassle, but for the user it''s a real pain and I have yet to find a good silent installer. In any case, I like Unmanaged C++ more anyways... still waiting for some Windows Help here (this is for the Mod Editor part of the game btw)
