To get your thought process in order...you make DLLs, and use them in DB Pro. You don't make a DLL from DB Pro, and then use it elsewhere.

So you might make a library of network functions (like the plug, CR?) and use them in DB Pro to make a networked game.

...if you can get your head around it ! I "play" with VB, I've even made programs that are in use in a commercial environment. But writing a DLL in VB, even before the conversion, requires an extra depth to your skills. Some people have it...I don't

I'm sure if someone sat down and explained it to me, I'd understand. But even reading the discussions here leaves me somewhat lacking. What I'm saying is...if you already have the skills, you're almost home and dry. If you haven't, expect a longer journey.

this question was asked already recently. i wouldnt be surprised if it's still on the first page. try to search before you make general threads.
