    Finished!

    Finally, started on July 2nd, and finished today on July 18th. That would be my text RPG of course. Go to my link in my signature to check it out. I made it have all the features, save and load, magic items, I really like how it turned out. Now, I can turn of C++ and actually sleep at night without my brain thinking about code

    Any comments are welcome! Code and library are at the site as well!

    Um...well...

    civix,
    Try to download now, I just had some trouble with the file names but now it is all fixed up. Anyhow, anyone else can download it, and give me some feedback, so I can sleep at night...

    civix,
    Thank you for your patience, and now I think I got it to work. It must have been something with the files already created messing with the compiler, who knows. But anyhow, if you can't 'save target as', then try to 'open from current location'. That might work. And if it doesn't, then I am not sure what to do Again, thanks for sticking around, I really want you to be able to see my program, I am very proud of Horizon.

    No, it has nothing to do with the fullscreen (I hope). There are problems running even before the program initializes. A buncha Windows errors pop up, but I think I got it fixed. Please, go ahead and try it, then make sure to come back and comment

    No fullscreen is only an issue with that particular computer. I downloaded and I played. Very nice. I had no errors or anything, and I found the game very interesting. I was planning on doing an RPG myself, but I wasn't sure on coding and how I'd do it. I like how your game is set up and how it works. It's inspired a few ideas for my game (basically just some of your ideas but modified and changed. I'm using some of your ideas as a basic structure and support for my own, I hop you don't mind lol . I noticed a monster called the Basilisk. Have you by chance read the second Harry Potter book? There's a basilisk in that book that turns people into stone when it looks at them indirectly. It's very interesting, and I'm going to keep playing, even though RPG's aren't really my thing. Great job, it's fantastic!

    Ok, i got it to work, and its an exellent RPG...the only thing though..when i mess w/ the numbers in the character file to maximize stats, the only enemy i get is that darn dragon....and it is impossible to kill, unless you use Killall...but anyway, its a wonderful program, and i think im gonna give it to all of my RPG-Obsessed friends!

    I'm working on an RPG myself, and I'm interested in how you did yours. If you wouldn't mind, could you please post the code? Thanks.

    Did it only take you two weeks to write the entire code for the program?

    I am changing that thing with the Dragon so you only have to fight it once, although to actually fight it you need to be Level 500, and since you can only play for 9200 Days (which is around 25 years of adventuring), reaching Level 500 is very unlikely.

    I got the idea for the Basilisk from Forgotten Realms, for D&D. Still this is a common monster. And in my game it does have a very small chance to turn to you to stone. The code is on the website, just download it from there if you want. Good luck on your RPG, post it later so we can all take a look. I am happy I could be of inspiration to you.

    Well, I play pen-and-paper games, and I read fantasy books, so all the monsters and stuff were a snap, and I had all the formulas and character stats worked out before I started coding. But I type the first line on July 2, and then I finally finished. Of course, this was around 5+ hours a day (since I had work, or it would be 12+ a day). Most of it was planned out in my mind, as I have lots of time to think at my work, and so I had the basic idea down already, the rest came naturally.

    Any more comments are welcome, and thanks to everyone who posted already!
