    rpg code

    Hey people,

    I have started a terminal based RPG in order to work on my C skills. I figure it would help me to learn the language if I have to work through making a program work the way I want it to, and as I learn more I can make the program better. Anyway, I have been searching the web without much success for some source code of some old RPGs in the same sort of style that I am looking to make for myself. The reason I want the source is not to cheat (what would be the point of copying someone else's code?) but to see if my ideas are half decent, or if I am making poor code. I realise that I could download sourcecode that is not good, but it would be a start. Does anybody here know of any links to the sort of thing I am after? Thanks,

    kermit

    Do a board search for RPG on the game programming board. The search button is in the upper right hand corner of the page.
    Away.

    Yeah, thanks for the tip. I had already done a search on the board. I took note of some interesting material there.

    well kermit, as long as your code works and does what you want it to, I wouldn't concern myself with how others code is(it is good sometimes to have a good example) but hey, there are different ways to do everything, everyone has to start somewhere.

    Yes, but by looking at other code, you may find you've left out an important piece you didn't realize will be necessary as the game implementation progresses.

    I agree, thats why I added the "it is good sometimes to have a good example" line. I have learned most of what I know from trial and error, you may have learned otherwise but for me thats the easiest way to burn a concept in my brain.

    if you go to
    http://www.sourceforge.net
    the go to the software map and the click on game/entertainment then to to command line or something like that, all of those programs let you download their source.

    thanks chrismiceli, I never thought to go have a look at the projects at sourceforge, but I just had a look, and there is quite a bit of stuff for me to explore there.
