Adventure Game Start

Recommended Posts

ok here is my shell starter for the adventure game..

it does nothing but print a banner and do a quick two dice roll..

need to add +++ everything..

plus I need to comment so I can keep on track..

I'm learning how to read and write files.. I think it would be better if all detail were in a text file.. this way .. this is just an engian and can be more basic..

read part of file in to array.

save game to file

things like that.

a config file would tell the engian how many rooms and frequencey of monsters / items

bash-2.05b$ cat adventure.cpp
