    lol

    seriously though C would be a good choice as it would support most OS and OS versions

    I code C hash-tag .Net
    Reference: W3C W3CWiki .Net Lib
    Validate: html CSS
    Debug: Chrome FireFox IE

    Thanks ^_^ I did some research on my own and was thinking about doing it in C, not know much about any coding language wasen't sure, BUT with a profile picture as a horse telling me to code in it, you bet i'm going to do it.

    Also If I do make the whole game I'll put your name in the credits <3

    I'm not a C coder, myself, but I think the most commonly used app is Borlands.

    If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.

    & those are my boys

    I don't know C either, I just know it's advantages. I would try starting here... these guys seem to be pretty good and they focus on having you understand the language and how it works from a low level. They strive to take out the 'fun' IDE's for starting out so when you begin to use them you really appreciate their power. They should inform you where to get a compiler or IDE. (sorry w/ holidays didn't see your repost of Q)

    What kind of RPG are you wanting to make? Something that is text based or do you want graphics? If you want it to be graphical (even 2D only) I wouldn't use C, especially if you want it to be cross platform. I would take a look at an off the shelf video game engine and IDE instead and write in something a little higher level. But it really depends what type of RPG you want to make and how complex it is going to be.

    However I will warn you that games are hard and don't overreach on your first coding project. It doesn't need to compete with the Elder Scrolls games.

    I think if you are new to programming, you're going to have a hell of a time in C. It would be a good place to start, but I don't think it's going to be easy. You might end up reading a book or two about C first.

    Does anybody know how to go around making basic monitor/mouse/keyboard control program that runs off a floppy/CD at startup on BIOS before the higher level OS is loaded? It sounds pretty interesting... I am very curious

    USB seems a bit harder, but BIOS based things like that are all over the place, how do they do it?

    Smile Regarding PHP language

    Yes, I also would like to suggest you to go with C Coder language.
