Displaying a dialog box before the game starts
I want the player to be able to enter his name and i thoght the best way would be to display a dialog box right before the game starts that takes the player name. The problem is the order of the code:
initiate direct x
enter message loop
this means that when the game is in the message loop dx has already taken over the system. How do i make it display the dialog box and then enter dx as soon as the name i recieved?
