    Good game, just a few comments. You should go easy on the delays for one thing. When you first create a character, the three ... followed by DONE is not really needed. I know it looks professional but nothing is really loading. And please use some clrscr()! Instead of having a big long line of words, it looks nicer to keep the screen clean. Got a bit repetitive. Good overall though.

    Great game. The only thing I found wrong with it is I can't buy any spells. I had like 100 gold and it said I didn't have enough to buy minor healing (?) which costs 50!

    Great game none the less.

    AWESOME GAME

    its not just good its awesome!

    i passed it out to the people around my comp in class and everyones playing it hahaha

    i cheated so i could recieve the full extent of the game...and for some reason when i got an old lady its like you gain 190000 exp but i never gained that much...

    if you could re-check the code for the old lady that would be great!

    please update tonight so i can bring another version to school...




    too bad i cant compile it

    i wanted to add to it heheh...

    darn MSVC++

    another thing i noticed... when i used that code where it displays a character at a time with a certain amount of sleep....

    when i do it in MSVC++ for some reason it doesnt do it right...it sorta adds all the sleeps together then burps out all the letters at once... it compiles perfectly just doesnt run like i want it to...is it msvc++ or the way i coded?

    sorry for another post but i gotta keep reportin what i think as i play or ill forget...

    i made my way to the Sedra Forest, and well, im a lvl 1 and i got my ass kicked by an orc...

    anyways, i died, yes thats right i died!

    and for dieing i lost a total of 1 experiece! for some reason i thought i was like.. dead forever, which i should have been, but i only lost 1 experience...

    maybe you should make it so you lose something more then that? just to make it more interesting...

    btw

    i really like your game and it seems really really large which is cool

    btw#2

    how could this be your FIRST GAME?

    my first game was a crappy slot machine...

    another report:

    i really like the way you can hit any key to keep exploring...

    because what i do is go to the easy area and type:

    1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

    and i can just chat while i gain levels

    but people should be able to hit "n" to go back to town instead of the whole word "no"

    btw

    to everyone, level 4 is a good level to head over to the sedra forest in my opinion

    EDIT::

    i just found the Haunted hills and i easily make it through the monsters at level 4

    i notice that the monsters are doing like 4 damage to me and im doing about 10 to them...maybe that has something to do with skill points? but i think they should be doing as much damage to me or more when they hit me (which isnt often)

    EDIT2::

    ok, im lvl 6 now and in the Ancient Ruins and im starting to get hit a little harder

    Yikes Paro you like my game huh
    Big thanks for all the help you are giving me.
    Especially Paro
    Oh and it really doesnt matter which format you save in.

    Well i'm going to school now but I'll come back later and finish all of these probs.
    I dunno what the hell is wrong with that old lady......
    Or maybe i have changed it already cause my code looks perfectly allright

    Code:
    if(chr.lvl<6) {
    helpExp = chr.lvl * 25;
    } else {
    helpExp = chr.lvl * 50;
    }
    chr.exp = chr.exp + helpExp;
    Here's an update with many of the small things (including the lady i hope) fixed.

    EDIT:: Isn't there a weapon shop?

    or maybe you have the best weapon.
    Cause if there isn't a weapon shop with that one you are using you have something too look forward to though =)
    In that case add seven 0's in the end of your savefile.

    lol

    yea i like the game

    i think i see the problem with the old lady...i cheated with the character text file, and i was like level 30, which by your code would give me 1500 exp...but it gave me almost 200000... hmm maybe i changed something else on the file that screwed it up

    ill download your update and continue playing

    Code:
    chr.hp = chr.maxhp + chr.lvl * 2;
    chr.maxhp = chr.hp;
    Maybe it works in the update...

    EDIT:: Hey maybe i was storing it in an int...
    Isn't int limited to max 36000 something?

    oh darnit,

    i downloaded the update but it seems im going to have to make a new character because when it loads the old one it sets the weapons as my old exp and gold and leaves my new exp and gold as Zero!

    oh well, this way i will be able to find more errors heh

    nice prologue its a great addition and same with the autoloader its so cool!

    LMAO

    i see you've fixed my way of power leveling! hahaha

    now i have to pay attention while i play

    that weapons shop with different areas is really cool btw, keep up the awesome work!

    one suggestion:

    maybe you could have an option where you could go back to the main screen so you could load a different game or set the autoloader again? it might be helpful
