    Creating a Windows Game Loop With C and the Win32 API (part 2)

    Back in Part 1 of this tutorial, we took a look at putting together a game loop for the Windows desktop using C and the Win32 API.

    We put the basics together, and so in this episode we’ll look at adding an ability to create your application in either a windowed frame, or as a fullscreen program.

    While we can “force” which presentation mode we want to unveil our creation to the player, as a player I must admit I enjoy it when I get the choice; there’s times when I’m playing a game that I want it in a smaller window vs. taking over fullscreen, and vice-versa.

    Creating a Windows Game Loop With C and the Win32 API (part 1)

    Hello my friends, I’m so excited for this post!

    In this post we’re going to put together a game loop using the Win32 API and C. If you’ve always been curious about digging into the basics of a Windows game loop, then hopefully this satisfies your cravings.

    The best thing about this is that once we go through and create it, we can use it for just about any project we want to for Windows games; more specifically, I’m going to be referencing this same tutorial in some future content I have planned.
