    Thanks for help...

    But I think there is a mis-confusion about my programming level... I have to program a simple console based car game in C (I don't know Win32 API programming) using standard C features...

    (the car has to do cornering, turning and acceleration/decceleration i.e. in a way I've to simulate basic car physics)

    Now the problem is, that on gamedev.net, most of the tutorials are too advanced and normally use the Win32 API...

    as for gametutorials.com, firstly, it's not really about gametutorials (as the name suggests), secondly, most of the tutorials there are too basic (after all who wants to study about functions, arrays and conditionals anymore...) So it's not of musch use...

    I know that I am asking too much which is not my right (after all it is my own headache) but this assignment is worth 7 points for me...

    So if anyone of you knows some thing about it, kindly let me know...

    Over at http://www.gametutorials.com/Tutorials/C++/Cpp_Pg1.htm they have advanced console programming tutorials, they show you how to make a maze game...where you use keyboard input...just read through the pages, they have everything you should need.

    Mind you making even a basic racecar game will not be easy.

    I think I've already answered that question, I've already scanned their whole site... Most of it is pretty basic...

    But anyways, thanks for dropping in a few lines...
    As for the difficulty of the assignment, I know it's not a very easy task...
