    Hey, i'm in the final stage of a course who has c++ programming to learn, i gotta do an empty project on win32 console application(it doesn't necessarily need to be that i think,i'm just mentioning cause it's what i'm used to work on,and btw the only thing we have here to work on is microsoft visual c++ 6.0 if that helps on anything at all) with everything we learned(i mean code based,not literally as everything as every single project we did),i have some knowledge on #include<stdio.h>, #include<conio.h>, #include<stdlib.h>, #include<string.h>(to be more specific,printf,scanf,if/else,switch,getch,while,do while,size of,etc(the basics of c++)).
    As i typed on the title,i'm outta original ideas on what to do on the project and i'll be grateful to hear any kind of suggestion.

    P.S.: I'm a newb as probably anyone well aknowledged on the subject can see by the way i typed this and hoping you don't give a to much complex suggestion if possible even though i'll still be willing to hear cause it might help me snap to a good idea.

    P.S.S.: 1 question,how do i change background/text color,i did my research on some commands and don't seem to work or i'm doing it wrong,i think it's simply they don't work on this version of visual c++ but just wondering the code if you can help.

    Thank you for reading at the very least.

    Thanks for the help dude i think the link is gonna help by what i could see from it,didn't use the code you gave me yet but i bet it'll work but i was just wondering if you knew another way to change the background/text color without the use of iostream. btw i suppose the background is SetConsoleBackgroundAttribute? I'm a complete newbie just saying out loud,anyways a thanks. -clicks thanks box-

    Thank you for your time and caring

    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    #define BLACK 0
    #define BLUE 1
    #define GREEN 2
    #define CYAN 3
    #define RED 4
    #define MAGENTA 5
    #define BROWN 6
    #define LIGHTGREY 7
    #define DARKGREY 8
    #define LIGHTBLUE 9
    #define LIGHTGREEN 10
    #define LIGHTCYAN 11
    #define LIGHTRED 12
    #define LIGHTMAGENTA 13
    #define YELLOW 14
    #define WHITE 15
    #define BLINK 128 
    
    int main(){
    SetConsoleTextAttribute(GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), _rotl(RED,4) | GREEN);
    printf("Your text here");
    getchar();
    return 0;
    }
    without iostream,for background and foreground color
