Hi, I wanted to make my game a multithreaded app for a while but I don''t know how, did you make a class to handle the threads or you''re just using it with the win32 api functions? how could I manage the threads whitin my app? I''ve always done it with delphi, but I need to do it with VC++ in Win32. thnx.

The C std function you're looking for depends on your implementation; there's no standard way to do threads in C, but most implementations have a way. If you're talking Unix land, fork is what you want. MSVC has a function called "beginthread" and one called "beginthreadex". I'm not sure about other compilers.

As far as using classes goes, depends on if that makes sense for your current design.
