It's free. You dont have to pay 1 dollar. Here's what you need:

Here are some C++ basic tutorials:

Get a graphic library, needless to say this supports 3D sound, opengl and all that, your games will be way faster than MMF (duh) so you'll be able to fill the screen with sprites and stuff:

here are the tutorials for that graphic library:

Why don't you just marry C++?

 
Show me the power child,
I'd like to say,
That I'm down on my knees today,
Gives me the butterflies,
Gives me away,
'Til I'm up on my feet again,
I'm feeling outshined.

Yes, we could all use C++. But I'd rather not wrestle with cross-compatibility and be forced to rewrite things already in MMF. One of the wonders of MMF is that it works on everything from 95 to XP...
It also takes a LOT longer to write anything in C++. It could take you an hour or two, even a day, just to get a ball bouncing round the screen. In MMF it's ten seconds' work.

^ what he said.

i suppose it didn't occur to you, dodgzer, that the majority of us are perfectly happy with MMF despite its limited power?

I will eventually move on to C++. I already know all the basics(cout, cin, headers, function, sorting algorithms, classes, class templates, and the very basics) and I've read an entire book on the subject. Too bad the book didn't tell how to use actual graphics. I'm programming in C++ for computer class.

Recently I made a C++ program that calculates Pi, but I amde it on one of the school's Mac computers.

Here's the Pi program that I made rebuilt on Windows.

http://home.comcast.net/~mytochi/calculatepi.zip

It can calculate up to 10 digits. Then the adder in the algorithm reaches the highest possible number and drops to the lowest negative number.

Does anyone know how to make a variable that can hold nearly infinite digits?

i agree that Cpp is great and all, but i also know how damned hard it can be to get multiple instances of an object (classes arent my strong point) and i can create games in mmf that would take masses of time and effort in cpp, despite this, i like and use both (if you check my profile you can see a non graphical game i wrote in c when i first started to learn )

Yes, everyone learn C++ to be able to make great extensions for MMF....

Building something complicated in MMF is harder in my opinion, otherwise I'd just make some funtioncs to do all the work, but for graphics, MMF/TGF is the way to go. Just cause C++ is a bitch about graphics.
