I am going to write a very simple graphical online RPG. Aimed at around 10 or so users. I will probably use TCP/IP (since it''s this small, this should be perfect, right?) instead of UDP. Anyways, Winsock 1.1 contains everything for using TCP/IP, so it should suffice perfectly, right? That way, also clients with win95 who do not have the winsock 2.0 update should be able to use my program. So.. Winsock 1.1 should be fine, right? Tim

Winsock 1.1 should be fine. Just remember that multi-threaded implementations should use the select statement rather than WSAAsyncSelect. (In Winsock 2.0 you''d use WSAEventSelct.)
