Read a post in the game programming forum saying something like this; "I wrote a game, and I want it to connect to my webpage for level-data downloading. How do I do that?" I thought it was an interesting question, so I thought someone here in this forum could probably give me a good answer. Either using Winsock or DirectPlay. Thanks!

it''s more of a general question, sorry for being unspecific but i only have basic winsock and directplay knowledge but i am always thirsty for more... maybe i should ask where i can find information about it instead...

Well, assuming it''s just a normal file stored on a normal website ... you''ll want to use WinSock to open up a connection on port 80, issue the appropriate HTTP GET request, and recv() the file.
