I've been wanting to begin development on a Roguelike class game, because they're relatively easy to start but very difficult to master.
It will help my programming if I am able to design a game that may require regular updates for new features.
The only resource I have come across has been the QHack template.
This is very difficult to understand as it's just a random stream of .cpp and .h files, it uses a conio.h file that has features not found in DevC++'s version.
So basically, can anyone point me in the direction of some resources that can be of any help to me?
Platform: Windows XP SP3 (I think they released 3 now, and I've always got auto updates on)
Development: DevC++ 188.8.131.52
Design with: Windows features in mind, with the possibility of being able to port over to Linux/Mac in the future when my programming knowledge and understanding improves.
Thankyou in advance for any assistance. I will try and reply prompty to any queries.
