Kind of wondering if people wanted to do a forum game...
This is what you do.
We all make a text base game (about a million of them if u think of those old computers with the green screens).
Then after everyone is done or after a week we add something to the game.'
Like We all make the game X, then we add blah to X then add art to X by making it in directx then we add more to X then MORE AND MORE AND MORE.
THen we would have like 10 journals of how to make a game from console to whatever.
Go to www.sourceforge.net and shuddap! :p
Most of those who read this forum have one or many indepentent projects like this, why not do some material solo?
i have an old text based game at home. it's a decent start to a game but has some problems in the battle code. it uses color and getch for key input. i haven't looked at the source in a long time (it's maybe 2 years old), but ill post it later tonight so we can add to it.
ok here it is... keep in mind the code is pretty dirty and by far not the best thing i've ever coded lol. if im not mistaken i didn't know file I/O at the time...
