alright, I get confused a bit with strings, but getting better.

my question:

I can get

std::string sText;
sText = "Charles in Charge.";

dbText(100,100,sText);

this prints out normaly.

I want to just print out the say '5th' charcter

dbText(100,100,sText.at(5));

this gets a error:
Quote: "error C2664: 'dbText' : cannot convert parameter 3 from 'char' to 'std::string'"


The old db string commands do not seem to be in place as of yet.

Compiler is msvc 2008.

Just create a second string with the nth character you want:

from what it looks like, The Game Creaters are pulling out the string and file functions from the newer version of DarkDGK?

The idea behind that is that you might as well use the string / file handling functions / libraries already present for the language.

For C++ you have <string> and <fstream>.

Thats okay, just forcing me to use something new (well not so new). just trying to find the ways to convert a few into and out of the string format. I have sometimes a hard time wrapping my head around the code. I think I got almost everything I need to get restarted on my project. Just got to lick this point to the right directory and get my images loaded and I think I will be set to go.

I got a prototype read / write functions going, but getting the files to load from another directory is not working as planned (see another post).
