Hi, havn't posted in a while lads and lasses, been designing my text engine.
Anyways....... I was thinking that instead of hardcoding all the text in the program, I could write the storyline, directions etc.... in text file(s). It would save alot of my time coding. But this is where i'm sort of in a debate with myself, should I write a class/function to load/close the text file when needed\not needed or just load it whenever I need it? If it's the first option then can you kind people advise me on how to do it, i'm not that good with fstream.
