• Shells: Roguelike

    From Mindless Automaton@VERT/ELDRITCH to DOVE-Net.Programming_(Jav on Wednesday, August 30, 2006 19:03:00
    I've been working on a shell for my BBS that is similar to a roguelike
    game (ie. Nethack, Angband, Moria, Adom, etc.)

    Although incomplete (you can walk around, but thats about it), I have it available as a demo on my BBS. Its also available to the guest account.

    Questions, comments, etc. appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Mindless Automaton

    A telnet address would help out.

    I find pleasure in knowing... this colours my words enough that people think I enjoy proving them wrong. Howver, I would be just as happy being proven wrong and knowing more than proving myself right. Please understand that any perceived rudeness is not intended. Rest assured that should I feel like being purposely rude, I will insult you personally and not attack your knowledge.

    Alright, so having had a look, do you think writing a game using
    javascript? Its just the default shell slopped up to pretend to
    be a game. :)

    How hard do you think it'd be to code it to be multinode so you could
    see another user walking around?

    Thanks,

    Well, you have file access and file locking, so it'd be no harder than writing such a thing in any other language.

    So in other words no matter what language I code in, I have to learn it
    before I can code something. ;)

    Rats..
