Yes, MFC does come in very handy for making tools. I can't imagine a better way to make Window-based map editors, for example.

I hear C# with WinForms is a better alternative.


C# is undoubtedly better, and VisualBasic.NET is probably better than that. Better in terms of speed of development, of course.

Once you have your basic window up and in fullscreen, you won't need any of the mfc. You can then use directx to program your game and draw graphics on the screen.

Thank You ( load_bitmap_file - Leo_E_49 - skittleo - kosmon_x - SKATIN_HARD )
What I understand from your words is I don't need MFC in just game programming but I

need it the additions Like The start Page and map editor .I didn't work in c# Before but I

think we can benefit from Visual Basic 6(Because of its elasticity more than C++ ).
But this discussion is comfortable for me.
And Thank You for all

Yeah most of games are playd in full screen.

There is basically no good point in using MFC then.
DirectX will do good.

Also forget about using vb in engine development.

I would olso not recommend using vb for anything unless you olready know the language.

There is no point in lerning vb today.

vb.net might doo the trick but not for creating games imho.

If your lerning c++ stay with that as this will be ok.

I'm not sure about it, but I think some games just use a maximized window, with no border or titleline, then make HUD and in-game menus and stuff in MFC or something, and just create the graphics interface inside a picturebox or something like that.. In particular, I'm thinking about The Settlers 5.. The game probably works great, as long as you only have/use one screen.. I have two monitors though, and when I move my mouse to the left border of the game-screen, it doesn't scroll, but instead the mouse moves to the other screen.. :p Could be due to other things though.. :p

Borys Pomianek(BP^.^): This good because I am Tired of This MFC....but your talk about

plan is suitable for a professional Like you and the gentlemen here (^.^) more than

Beginner Like Me And I want to escape from MFC.
Thank for all .
