    practice game

    Hey, right now I am making a text rpg using classes and pointers for hands on experience. I have got as far as making a tutorial on how to play the game and could not figure out how in the world I could use magic! This magic is going to act like the final fantasy magic system and i'm hoping I can do it with my current experience.

    Please give any helpful tips, tricks, or any helpful info

    p.s. - Don't worry about the "Heal" off by itself, I just did that because I tried to make it easier for the player...and i'm kinda lazy right now

    What do you mean? Maybe you could have a vector (C++) or array that holds the player's spells. Then you could call a specific function for each spell, and the function might prompt for a direction, or amount, or something.

    I think all you have to do is press m to use magic.

    I vote Quzah to write the Prima Official Strategy Guide when this game is released.

    ...but to translate what he's saying to the OP, if you don't understand... what exactly don't you understand about using the magic?

    That would be freakin sweet, but make sure you include the monster index in the very back and map in the front or else it wont sell...
