well i just finished a game, (very simplistic to the more advanced people on the board)
but i would like people to test it out,
see what you all think of it,
i need a bug report if there are any,
and if enough people like it i may persue it into a full game (it is now, but more advanced versions).
with AI, more customized features, better skinning, more stuff all around haha, probably DDraw as well for a 2d map and stuff (im old fasioned for 2D).

LOL! (for 5 minutes)
Ok, that's enough. Bugs, huh? How about, when I push "Attack" button your "game" crashes.

Interesting start to a RPG...

You should set the fonts from the default type.. use GetStockObject to access system fonts so you dont have to create them yourslef (or destory them for that matter).

As well, you can tailor your edit boxes and buttons closer to your bmp scheme if you handle WM_CTLCOLOREDIT (do a search on the board with this if your interested, or consult your handy API help file)...

Good work.
