    I think he wants to make an ASCII movie by drawing a scene, waiting, clearing the screen, and then drawing another scene. But that's just my speculation.
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    Your right. But i don't want just movies. I want gameplay that way as well.

    I think he wants to create like a game with animations in ANSI text mode. But advice is that it's time-consuming and does not worth the effort, if you want to actually make something good.

    okwell then do this...

    Code:
     0
     |-
    / \
    
    wait a sec....clear screen
    
            0
            |-
    ___ / \
    
    wait a sec...clear screen
    
                0
                |-
    _____ / \
    
    and so on
    That's about the only sort of animation you could do as far as I can imagine...If you implemented the animation techniques correctly it shouldn't be too difficult.

    Don't try to make an animated character or anything like that, the flickering will drive you nuts. You can do simple stuff like tetris or pong or something with no problem. I am making a tetris game in DOS on my old DOS only comp, just for something to pass me by when I'm bored and can't get on my new computer to work on my TBS game.

    I don't want ppl to think im a moron... not that im saying that you think i am one... but in Dev c++ Version 4, the Dos console is called Console Appplication. So im using that. The windows application is for a non dos.. of course, and i do not know any windows commands, like output devices.
