Ok, I am making a text base RPG where you press 1 and you go to the forest! :D. I was curious, is there anyway to add pictures to the game? Like say you are traveling to a forest, then below it, it will show a picture of a forest? My dad told me to make one because he has always been wanting to make text-based RPG and I just told him today I knew how to.

If you're using a dos box, then no. But, if you want to create a window yourself, you can always have a box in the window for a picture, and then have the lower half of the window dedicated to text.

It is time for you to move on to using 2D libraries to aid you in displaying 2d graphics on screen. They will handle all the work of creating a window, displaying/loading 2d images for you. They also provide many advanced features which you might need later on. The 2 most popular are

1) SDL
2) Allegro

Google them to find out more.

If you are good with ASCII art then you could try that.. Although that might be a bit hard.


On the other hand, you would have a fairly unique game.
