I'm making a simple race.. thing, not really a game, but i suppose you could bet on it. What i am wanting to do is this:(as an algorithm) if the car goes past a point, clear everything from the screen, pop-up window "CAR (x) WINS!" with options "Rematch" and "Exit" what i have is: if car goes past a point, clear previous drawing above for function, create text in window "Car (X) Wins!" // it also continues to move, which i can fix. This is running in WinXP also. THANKS!

What, exactly, is your question? How to gracefully exit a program when prompted to do so? How to reset the game state?

umm well the most simplistic way would be something like MessageBox(NULL, 0,0 MB_RETRYCANCEL); Then you handle each each click, depending on which item was pressed ( do it through the WinProc). I am assuming you know how to handle click messages. If you want something more complex then you should make your own dialog box (google that) and then create your own buttons on it. Then you handle them in a similar fashion, having two functions for example OnClickQuit() and OnClickRetry(). Heres a site on how to make dialog boxes (it uses MFC) Here

P.S I think that the program will automatically pause because the dialog box will get the focus.
