[OFFTOPIC] [CODE] Win API C programming

I was wanting to possibly port Circle fully to a windows GUI enviroment, but
know much about the WinAPI. I don't want to learn MFC, but instead the
actual WinAPI.
My experience is in C, not C++. If anyone could point me to an online
tutorial I'd
be most grateful.. I know there is a fabulous book, but at AU$110, it is
kinda out
of my budget.


I've got a bit of an idea. I want people to react more with NPCs than to
just buy
goods from them. So I thought about various NPCs in the cities that you can buy
services from. Say you might like to hire out a mercenary from a bar or
like that. What I'm stuck on is I want to player to be able to control the NPC,
but I want it to look to the other players that both the player and the NPC are
actual people. I don't want to player to be dormant whilst the mercenary goes
around town if you get me. You could hire butlers and maids and chefs etc. etc.
What do people think?
