Well.. you _slightly_ missed the right forum. This forum is about Artificial Intelligence.
Anyway, I''m in a good mood, so: Usually, in window environments, the main (or WinMain in Windows) function looks like:


int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
Initalization stuff here...

while(!done)
{
while(PeekMessage(...)) {
Handle message...
}

Do game logic...
Render scene...
}

Cleanup code...
}


The inner while-loop handles window system messages.. everything else is just like you''re used to from DOS games.
