    Post Please try my game Darkwood.

    Okay everyone, I am gonna try posting my game. And I want any feedback on it. If ErionD can get a million zillion replies, so can anyone else right? I don't use ZIP because I don't, so download it at the link below, or you can go to my page and download it. Either way, thanks to anyone who has some input.

    The program is small and I had posted an earlier version before. Only the Good quest is done so far, since making up and typing all that story for all the options is alotta work. Doesn't have inventory or save or load yet, since this is just the introduction. Games ends abrubtly, since I have just uploaded what I have been working on. 500 some kb, since there are 6000+ lines of typing.

    I don't know where, or if you have learned your spelling, but mould, as in the type growing on bread after a year, is mould, not mold. Dictionary much?

    Hey, i like your game, although i've not really bothered to look at it in great detail, i'm really interested in how you did that text colour stuff (I'm kinda new to windows programming, i usually use ncurses) is there a link or soemthing you have where i could find out how to do that? or could you just mail me the code or something? i'd appreiciate this alot.

    No, it is mould. I don't know where you live, but around here it is mould. So you played it to the end? What did you think of the riddle, did you answer it right?

    Anyways...Darkroot, about the text color. It is in the FAQ, but since it requires energy to check there (and us programmers are lazy) here is an example of the code. I am using the free v 5.5 compiler off the Borland site, and the way I do the color doesn't always work for other people (we have had trouble in the past). Anyhow, the way I do it is below.

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include <conio.h> // For the color
    
    int main()
    {
    textcolor(RED);
    textbackground(BLACK);
    clrscr();
    cout<< "This is red.\n";
    
    getch(); // Pause program
    
    textcolor(WHITE);
    textbackground(BLUE);
    
    cout<< "This is white writing with a blue background.\n";
    
    getch();
    
    return(0);
    }
    And that should work, always make sure to put the clrscr() after you change the text color, or it won't take effect. Look in the conio.h library for different colors, but I think my program uses all of them available. Oh ya, they call purple magenta. Make sure to always put the color in capitals. I am not quite sure how to do more than one color on the screen at once, but I hope this helps ya.

    And GARGONII, it is mould. Green and mouldy. NOT green and moldy. Maybe different countries spell it differently. Are you from Canada or the US?

    Not really. Stupid Brits spell things weird. Here in the US it's mold not mould. And how would you know? You don't even live in an English speaking nation.

    Unhappy ...

    Yeah, I know, I just don't want to get prejudiced against because I don't live in the west and spell mould differently. Sorry Tim and anyone else I offended.

    Arrow Well...anybody else...?

    Don't let all this jibber-jabber stop you from trying out Darkwood. It is worth at least looking at. The title alone took me 10 years. Almost. Check it out, and please review here!

    Hey man real nice game!!!!!!

    I think people like mine because its simple.
    My story is like:

    Boss = bad
    Walk around in places until you find boss.
    Kill boss.
    And buy stuff along the way.

    Your game really has a story!
    Great work!

    And GARGONII, ease up on him will ya?
