    Online game

    Hi !
    I want to develop an online game played by two persons, similar to chess ( guys play on different machines through internet ). My problem is that all my life I've been doing programming of offline desktop apps and I absolutely have no idea how this whole internet thing works in terms of coding.

    First, please tell me where I should start reading and learning about this. I want to get this internet idea and implement it in my software development.

    Second, what's the best programming language would you recommend for making games like the one I mentioned ? Is it possible to do it using just MFC or should I start learning some ASP.NET, C#, Java or whatever?

    If you learn C# or VB.Net, there are many tools that help create games.
    The new Windows 7 Mobile Phone SDK lets you develop programs for the phone, and also the game box.

    Any game can be played over a TCP/IP connection. If you can write a program, you can learn how to open a connection on one end, wait for it to connect, and then send data.

    Ok. Then I'll start learning C#.
    Does MFC have interface that provides operations with TCP/IP ? Thanks.

    I'd bet that it does, but I've never used it.
