    Oh yeah, the exe file.

    i do use getch. Look at the source code!
    I laerned how to do
    Code:
    getch();
    if (getch() == anykey) //example
    {
    cout << "YOU SUCK!\n";
    return 0;
    }
    yesterday.
    So cut me some slack. This also allows people to BACKSPACE the wrong input. Or enter 888 to go north 3 times! Sheesh.

    *Enters explorer, renaming a cpp to exe*

    Yes, it does work to rename cpp file to exe files. Successfully executing them is another thing .

    er. i meant, compile them, dont rename them, because the program won't run. It was a lame attempt at joke.

    Follow the link in my sig, and you can download one of my text games called Dynamic-Toe. It's a slight variant of Tic-Tac-Toe; I found it boring, but it might be fun for some of you for at least a couple of minutes.

    That's weird; how is my sig empty? Also, travis, how were you able to see my sig? I can't even see my sig. I really have no idea why that is either; I can see other people's sigs. Does anyone possibly have an explanation for this?

    Btw, did anybody play my game?

    EDIT: Ok, this is really strange, because I can see my sig now. Wth is going on lol...

    EDIT2: Ah, it was only that one single post that didn't include my sig for some reason, all else is good in wonderland.

    I played your light game. I didn't find it to entertaining. But that becuase i prefer battle games.

    Ah, hey, thanks, travis. Right now I'm making a new update to the game, since I don't have much time to work on anything more complex/new. As you might have noticed the game isn't very new considering the last update to the game was in August lol.
