    My Maze Game

    Hey everyone! I've just finished my first version of a maze game I created. It's fairly straight-forward; you try to get to the exit without being killed by the little monsters. I got the idea off Gametutorials.com and expanded upon it. It also comes with a Maze Creator to make things a little more fun. The editor uses the mouse, and the main game uses the keyboard.

    The only thing is, it must be copied to the C drive. This is because the game searches for mazes under "C:\Maze2\Mazes\". I'm going to probably add something where you can put the path of the folder into a file so that it can be installed elsewhere, but for now, it's gonna have to go to C.

    Any feedback, comments, suggestions, etc are welcome. I may also add a 2-player option, but I don't know yet. I hope you enjoy it!

    [edit] The game is down a few posts; I had to re-post it and I was going to do it here but I accidentally deleted it and yeah [/edit]

    Hehe yeah I'm thinking of AI. And I know you can edit the mazes in Notepad, but I found it easier with the editor because...well because you can use the mouse and all, you don't have to type it all in. I'll work on AI a bit though. Glad you liked it

    Ok I'm working on my directory changing thing here...(the way I'm doing it is the path is in a .ini file and it reads it from there), and I've encountered a problem. How can I get my program to store the path in a string? Like I know it sounds kinda simple, andI've got it sort of working, but everytime I save a maze it puts these weird symbols in front of the name. I'm using ifstream to load the name. Any help?

    Smile ok...

    MW, you need to extract it to your C:/C:/ directory. HP (not the one from hogwarts ) is working on directory changing but untill then.... lol.

    HP, I cant really help you. Im not the best at that. Cant you just save the directory to a txt file then read it and load with the
    DIR_VAR + MAP_VAR + EXT_VAR?

    Fixed :)

    Alright, you can now place it anywhere you'd like. Here's what you've got to do. In the folder where you find the game (and the same with the Maze Creator), there's a file called "directory.ini". At the moment, the path is set to "C:\\Maze2\\Mazes\\". You'll need to change this to where ever you put the folder. Like if you wanted it under Program Files, you'd change both ini files to say "Cor D, if you want...or Q...)\\Program Files\\Maze2\\Mazes\\". Don't forget the double-backslashes and don't forget to add the last two backslashses. The path can be up to 80 characters. Hope that helps! Sorry it's kind of a pain to do, but at least it works.
