My problem is this, when i try to create a pointer of my input class in my battle class it gives me the errors below. From what I am reading it is finding the "Input" before "*m_Input" to be a variable while it is the type. has anyone had a similar problem before that may be able to shed some light on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. [edit] just thought I should note, the Input Class works fine elsewhere in my program. errors: Battle.h(34) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '*' Battle.h(34) : error C2501: 'Battle::Input' : missing storage-class or type specifiers Battle.h(34) : error C2501: 'Battle::m_Input' : missing storage-class or type specifiers Battle.h(34) : error C2143: syntax error : missing ';' before '*' Battle.h(34) : error C2501: 'Battle::Input' : missing storage-class or type specifiers Battle.h(34) : error C2501: 'Battle::m_Input' : missing storage-class or type specifiers Input.h

I think I may have the answer. In battle.h you have a method called Input. This is probably what is clashing with the type Input. Try naming the method something else and see if that works.
