yep you can develop anything in delphi, I am working on a statergy game engine @ the moment which is fully editable with just notpad an paint  :)

i would suggest getting hold of the DELPHIX component suite if you want to do anything with delphi, although there are others.

delphiX is for versions 3-5, however you can make it work on delphi 7 using this tutorial

though im not sure its too legal, but on the otherside of it the guy who built delphiX seems to not exist online anymore

An excellent website to get going is "ye olde delphi game developer" :)

for a sample of what you can do with delphi visit my site www.davidbirch2.com (excuse the poor graphics and HCI on some games)

yep, one delphiX DXDraw component over the whole form, and a DelphiX imagelist to hold the images and also a DXtimer to control the refreshing of the page. just dont forget to link th imagelist to the DXdraw component, i have wasted hour looking for errors in the code, when i had forgot to set the property of the image list !

There are some good examples of how to use the components in the delphiX download.  

many thanks for the points
