#ActualRipIt

Posted 28 September 2012 - 06:58 AM

Ok, thank you, i am trying to get a grasp as i am learning the basics to C++ and will soon use some type of graphics library with it to practice drawing maps / tile based screens through an array? i think thats how its done, from what i have read so far. still not sure about all that lol.

I appreciate all the input you have both provided, i am just unsure of the FULL capabilities of these languages i suppose and it scares me to think i could use so much time doing something where it wouldnt be applicable to what i want in the long term thus having to learn another language and be lost again.

The text based RPG (MUD) would be very do-able in C++??

I don't want an old school MUD where players enter commands to do things such as "attack goblin" or "eat apple"

this would be controlled by say, clicking a link to go to a dungeon and within that dungeon they have a list of opponents to attack, say :

goblin
troll
barbarian

and they will click one to attack that character and can do so over and over until energy runs out or something of the sort.

As with the "eat apple" they wouldnt type it, they would click the inventory link and be directed there and then it would have apple in the inventory and they click it to eat it or other options like sell or give away

I guess it would be browser based, what would be the best way to tackle something like that?
