I think you use html tags:
you would write:

a href="http://wherever.html
This would be the link, if I used braces
/a

I need to know how to "defang" html

to make a link you would write something like:

<a href="http://www.geocities.com/entaria/homepage/Download.htm">Link Name Goes Here</a>

stevenmarky:
To get < and > you have to write them as &lt; and &gt; respectively (to get &lt; you have to write &amp;lt; etc...)

lt = less-than
gt = greater-than
amp = ampersand

there are many other codes as well...

You need to put http:// at the front of that link. At the moment, it''s trying to open:
"http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/www.geocities.com/entaria"
It''s because you''ve given the link a relative address.
Adding http:// at the front should fix it.

First, you're right - the link works now.
Second, I've just downloaded the game, and am running it.
I've only just started, so I can't say anything about the actual game-play yet, but on the technical side:
1) It does work in WinXP (which is slightly surprising but good)
2) EDIT: I'm an idiot - I *really* should look at more than the first screen or two before posting.

I'll post more when I've actually played the thing.

Ohh thanks for playing it
Yes I try it on Win 2000 which is a bit similar to Xp when dealing with console applications.
I''m using Win98 however
Anyway I''m waiting for your feedback
Good luck!!

I''m sorry it''s taken so long to reply, but I''ve been very busy. Anyway, I finally had a bit of time to test it, and it seems very good. The only qualms I have with it is the occasional slight lag. Given the nature of the game, any lag seems quite unreasonable. However, it could have just been my computer, and it wasn''t too bad - not the kind of thing to worry about.
The gameplay seems quite good - except perhaps the fighting. Since you don''t have the option to include dazzling special effects, the combat seems a bit boring - just clicking hit until you''ve killed the thing, or until you''ve been hurt so much you have to flee. I''m not sure of the best way to make it better though.

Unfortunately, I''ve run out of time now, but I''ll write if I think of anything else.

Hmmmm you can press H or h to hit if you get bored of using the mouse j/k
But you are right there is nothing I can do to improve it with graphics since its an ascii game.
Thanks for testing it

Unfortanately I get an illegal operation when I click
on the nightfall.exe.
I have no idea why, but I will try it again when I get my new
computer in a few days.
I am using an old computer with Windows 95 on it right now.
The game looks cool I will try it again with my new computer.

Here is the error I get, but it's probably just my computer.

NIGHTFALL caused a divide error in module FMOD.DLL at 0137:1001763d.

Ohh this is strange.Win95 is the most dos friendly OS AFAIK.Ok
I would be happy if you tell me when you try it with your new computer Thanks
Edit:
Hmmm the problem is with the music then I'll put a exe without music and we will see if it works.
I dont know much about the fmod thing I just used the code from their site and it may not be compatible.

Uhm thanks.
Those errors arre because I had a bug in the directory system.
When you put it to c:\ it should work or when you put them to the same directory as you did.I should fix that and upload it again.
