Hi guys,

I haven't been on daniweb for a while, I've started learning scripting in UDK.

But still I wish to make smaller games using native languages.

So here goes my question: what is the best IDE for programming small games with nice UI?

So far, for programming win apps I have used Borland Builder only, and it doesn't seem as a piece of software that is easy to make nice UI with ( no support for PNG kills me ).

On the other hand, VC++ seems pretty good for that.

My plan is to make a little Dominos game, for PC only.

I am familiar with C++, therefore is VC++ the best choice? Can you tell me more about that?

Thank you and happy New Year to everyone! :D
