    Holy crackemoly! There aren't exactly tutorials that teach you
    writing your own text rpg engine (not really an engine but i
    won't bother you with that), You can try searching the board
    for open source text rpg from wich i'm sure have come by.
    What kind are you planning to create exactly? A moving map?
    Or just a map that changes to the next one as soon as you
    hit the edge? Or just entire text based and lines that tell what's
    going on?

    too vague, specify the simplicity
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    Oh you must have got me wrong..

    See to me a text RPG is .

    A story written out and say if you want to g north you type in north..

    Example..

    You enter a room were you have last found your brother..

    There is a door south east and west

    I choose west

    You go through the door and you see a hammer.You can take

    Take dont take..

    I take etc.

    It shouldn't be too hard. An understanding of OOP would help greatly.

    There is no standard for the difficulty of making a text RPG. If you want it to be simple, make it simply

    You might want to adjust any mistakes made in that source, Like
    when i openend it i saw

    Code:
    /*  These are our Preprocessor directives*/
    #include <iomanip.h>
    #include "keys.h"
    #include <iostream.h> /* For input/output*/
    #include <stdlib.h> /* For clear screen*/
    #include <conio.h> /* For getch() - makes program pause till user
    				      user presses a key*/
    *shaking no*

    They are preprocessor directives.
    But the names of the header files are deprecated.

    If i'm not mistaken preproccesor directives are

    Code:
    #define name Travis
    #define anothername RoD
    Right?
