now this is the code that i think has the problem, this is my main game file and i am trying to get so when i press a Q (or any key) down it changes the Game_State value to 0 so the hile statement should end and the app should die. the thing is that it runs but when i push q or any other button nothing happens, what is wrong with my code?
#include "PrecompiledHeaders.h"
#include "MainApp.h"
#include "GameWindow.h"
#include "GLCanvas.h"

int Default_Window_Value = -1;
int test = 2;
int Game_State = 1;

DWORD Default_GL_Style = wxNO_BORDER;

wxString Empty_String;

// Event Table For The Main Game Window

EVT_KEY_DOWN( MainApp::EndGame )



bool MainApp::OnInit()


return true;


void MainApp::StartGame()

MainGameWindow *GameWindow = new MainGameWindow( _T ( "Stromgage Game Engine" ), wxPoint( 100, 100 ), wxSize( 800, 600 ) );

GLCanvas *GLWindow = new GLCanvas( GameWindow, test, wxPoint( 0, 0 ), wxSize( 800, 600 ), Default_GL_Style, Empty_String );

GameWindow -> Show( true );

GLWindow -> SetCurrent();

while(Game_State == 1)



delete GLWindow;
delete GameWindow;


void MainApp::EndGame( wxKeyEvent &event )

Game_State = 0;
wxMessageBox( "Game_State = 0" );

I'm just taking a wild guess here, but do you have to call some function to check for messages (in the main loop)?
