I have a pure abstract class called GameState. TitleScreen and OnePlayer both inherit from it. Then I try to include TitleScreen and OnePlayer headers into a PongGame.h, which needs both of them. It says I'm redefining the GameState type. c:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Pong\GameState.h(11) : error C2011: 'GameState' : 'class' type redefinition c:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Pong\GameState.h(11) : see declaration of 'GameState' PongGame.cpp c:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Pong\GameState.h(11) : error C2011: 'GameState' : 'class' type redefinition c:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Pong\GameState.h(11) : see declaration of 'GameState' TitleScreen.cpp I tried to include the virtual keyword when deriving, class TitleScreen : public virtual GameState class OnePlayer : public virtual GameState to no avail. Does anyone know of a solution here?

Do you have your inclusion guards in place?


#ifndef HEADERNAME_HPP
#define HEADERNAME_HPP

// Header code goes here.

#endif
