Hello! I am writing a program in Visual Basic 2005 and I am stumped. The program is for some fellow game developers on another forum. This program is a main menu for a online PC game. It has a chat function and a level selection menu and everything. But I want to allow other people to customize the menu for thier game. I need to know how to compile the program and allow a .ini file or something of the sort to change the details of the program. Like for example when you click the about button I have it display in a message box "GAME NAME was created by AUTHOR NAME. Copyright 2007." I want people to be able to change the information to "Pacman was created by John Doe. Copyright 2007 John Doe."
I think the way to do this is make config files that the users can edit with notepad to change the program. Is this possible? If so I need a pretty in depth tutorial or something. If any one is willing to go step by step with me please post back.
