Go to http://www15.brinkster.com/bluescream (my team''s site) then go to SCRIPTS (on the left), and download ARENA:Evolution. It comes with the complete code for a text RPG, and it quite well commented >. I hope that helps you some! Just e-mail me at shiningknight7@hotmail.com. If you have any questions.

If you want to make a text only game, might I suggest you use Java to code it. By using Java you gain the following:

1. You get a chance to learn some Java.
2. It should be pretty easy to code in Java.
3. Your game will be available for all platforms that support Java.
4. As your skills get better, you can enhance your existing code by adding graphics or converting it to an applet without having to re-write the whole thing.
5. Java is free!!
6. There are sooooo many Java books/Online tutorials out there.

There probablly are many other reasons to use Java for a text game but I can''t think of any.

To change the font color you need msoftcon.h|.cpp. Then once you have that included with your project, all you have to do is: setcolor(cRED, cBLUE, cGREEN, cLIGHT_GRAY, cDARK_GRAY, cDARK_BLUE, cDARK_GREEN, cMAGENTA, cWHITE, cBLACK). One of those, there are more, but I couldn''t remember them off hand, just read the files, they are really self-explanatory. Hope that helped.

I believed I packed the right files with it. There should be a msoftcon.h|.cpp with it. Those are the files you ened
