The WinMain for the application is abstracted away from child applications, hidden inside the GameLib code. 3. 3: WinMain int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, LPSTR lpCmdLine, int nCmdShow) { cApplication* pApp; g_hInstance = hInstance; try { pApp = CreateApplication(); pApp->ParseCmdLine( lpCmdLine ); pApp->Init(); 48 pApp->SceneInit(); pApp->Run(); } catch( cGameError& err ) { /** * Knock out the graphics before displaying the dialog, * just to be safe.
