Hello all – Two questions really. What would you call the game interface / game window / stage / border / frameset that many games; well at least RTS style games; are wrapped in (Like HoMM, AOE or WC where you have things like minimap, selection options, game stats etc permanently to the bottom or right of the screeen)? My second question is, has anyone seen any code concepts / barebone code for doing something like this (I would google for it but I'm not sure what you'd call it)? I'm at the stage where I'm just loading in the textures, positioning and then drawing but it feels quite messy so I'd like to see how others have done this. Many Thanks.

The term GUI (Graphical User Interface) would also apply, but is more generic. It would apply equally well to a health display as it would the start menu.
