I am writing a 2D game that only uses the arrow keys for input. I have done a search on this site fro ways to get input from the arrow keys and have come up with many solutions. However all of them use the getch() function. Normally this would be OK but for this project one of the files that I have to include raises 4 errors and a warning when I include <conio.h> (the header for getch()). The file that doesn't like getch() is DarkGDK, which I downloaded from www.msdn.com for its ease of use when creating games.
I was wondering if there are any alternatives.
I am using Visual C++ 2008 Express running on Windows XP.
