    Exclamation Textmode Games!

    How do you makle textmode games? For an example go to http://webpages.mr.net/bobz/ttyquake/ Its texmode quake! ITS AWESOME! I need linux to run it though :-(. If anyone can tell me where to begin on making something cool like that, i'd be happy.... How'd they do that! Who needs 3D graphics when you have text!

    I'll send you a letter. Who needs computers when you have typewriters!

    What is a luddite? Never heard..

    But fortunately I have this GDict 1.4.0 which came with Gnome:
    Luddite Lud"dite, n.
    One of a number of riotous persons in England, who for six
    years (1811-17) tried to prevent the use of labor-saving
    machinery by breaking it, burning factories, etc.; -- so
    called from Ned Lud, a half-witted man who some years
    previously had broken stocking frames. --J. & H. Smith. H.
    Martineau.
    Well, that was fascinating.

    But the thing here is that there is really no difference in making games to text mode. Just replace some colors with the letters. Right?
