int mode = ios::in;
char AreaFilename= //problem here ;
fstream fin(AreaFilename, mode); //input file
while(fin.get(ch)) //read ch
cout<<ch; // print ch
fin.close(); //close file
this line here is the problem: char AreaFilename=
well, i need to get it to = PLAYER.X.PLAYER.Y.dat.... but whatever i try i get errors because it cant convert int to char. so i need an alternative method...
any help would be great, thanks for your time!
quick question... im in the process of writing what would seem like a text engine for a text adventure or whatever it gets turned into (if anything)
i can load files ok, but just ran into a small problem....
i got a struct for PLAYER that stores player info and his/her current x and y position on the map (an array)... well when they move i need to load a file, this file needs to match where they are on the map....
so i thought that the easiet way to go about that would be creating files that have file names like this: 1.2.dat where the 1 and the 2 are the x and y pos on the map for where they load
thus, when the player moves north, i update their position on the map and then want to load the file at there new position... so basically, PLAYER.X"."PLAYER.Y".dat"
BUT, heres my file loader
