    Question text rpg adventure

    I want to make a text RPG adventure, life in ADRIFT, but I am fairly new to C++. Does anyone have a source file that I can take a look at?

    Thanks!

    Talking MMMM, Text RPG

    Text RPGs are FUN to make and play. I made an old one, but lost the .cpp to that one. I am currently working on a new one, called Horizon: Lands of Kestrel. You can check out the link that is included with my signature. I put the .exe, .cpp, and my .h library on the site as well.
    http://www.angelfire.com/realm2/horizon/files.html Just in case.

    Hope that helps, tell me what you think

    I didn't make any of these, but if you want to make a MUD, check out the rom and deku codebases at http://ftp.game.org/. If you look at it for a bit, the majority of it is pretty simple to figure out.

    I went to the MUD site. I'd really like to try a mud, but all files are .tar.gz What to I use to open a .tar.gz file?

    I'm not sure if winzip can, i haven't used it in awhile, but check out ultimatezip, it can open that and a few more such as .ace .

    WinAce is able to open .tar.gz, .tar, .zip, and a whole bunch of other archives.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    WinZip can also open that file type, but I would recommend WinAce. It is a far superior program and doesn't have WinZip's wizard that is so 'user friendly' that it makes you want to throw up. It just...works.

    Winzip works fine for me. I think I'm going to do a mud instead. I am working on one, with a dikuMUD base, but, how do I run it? Do I have to compile all the files together, seperately, or at all?

    I'm using my own computer right now. I know how to get it up and running, the codebase came with a batch file that i just have to open and it starts it up. I have finally figured a good storyline, and right now I'm working on deleting rooms, areas, objects, and resets that i dont want/need.

    hmmm...muds usually don't have too much of a story line (: At least not that I've seen...I would suggest playing a couple of muds for a while before you make one if you haven't ever...they are great fun for a while, even if you don't learn much (:

    Well, I played it, and, im assuming I died, but I don't know, because the window closed before I could read it. Might want to work on that. Or not. Whichever. The MUD is coming along fine. If anyone wants to build, let me know here, or IM me, my sn is LancerSykera


    Cheers!
