    svgalib is the only one I am aware of.

    I'd imagine there are more, but I don't know.

    Why would you want to develop for that anyhow? Not many people who play games will use just a console... SDL is so much better, it's cross-platform, but requires X.

    hmmm....I didn't realize everything revolved around you DarkViper. Who cares if he makes a console game or not....if he does then don't play it, it's your choice.

    thats all i was mentioning. if he makes a console game i wont play it. i find console games and programming boring.

    everyone else can play it but i dont like em. i wasn;t saying change it to windows. he can program whaatever he pleases. im just saying i wont play it.

    im not trying to make the world revolve around me i dont want that. i just hate console games. thats all.

    to each his own!
