Currently in the final three weeks of this semester and stressed to a level that is unheard of right now. The final piece is to make a game all in C++, I have an idea and I am trying to figure out how to do it.
I want to make a map whether randomly or actually coming up with the layout and have it save to a txt file. For example I want to make a 5x5 map have it print out on the screen, and be saved in the txt file. Then be able to recall that map whenever I want. Such as a town map. My question is, how do you create a map in the txt file(in notepad) from scratch, then with the program call that map up, save any progress made on it. Then when you load the game later start from that point and everything there be saved? I understand the writing, and reading parts of fstream but I am not sure how to write something in notepad and have it created.
Also I am trying to figure this out for character stats. I have looked around but have not found any tutorials in how to do this as a guideline in how to do it.
