I'm making a text (based) RPG! Apr. 19th, 2012 @ 11:58 AM Reply

Hey y'all!
Just thought i'd let you know, I'm making an RPG/adventure-type game, (currently) based on text (msgbox&inputbox's). The coding and spriting is all done by me, so the progress isn's massively fast, but I do make considerable progress almost every day. The game is made in Visual Basics 2010 Express and therefore, you can only play it if you have the application (Which is free from Microsoft website). There is a (reasonably) up to date download on my personal newgrounds page, so if you're interested, be sure to check it out ;)
It's free, but donations are much appreciated.
Just comment on this topic or on my page (which has more information about the game) if you are wondering about anything about my game or the developing at all.
That's all. :)

Windows only, made with Visual Basic, compressed in a RAR file.
Nope.

Yeah I noticed that, too.
I'm genuinely curious: of all the compression file formats you could have chosen, why in the world did you choose RAR?

I also just noticed this on your user page:

How are you even testing the game if you can't compile it?
Are you just writing out code and hoping that it will work?

I really don't understand how you're making this.

Microsoft Visual Basics has a compiler within the program, but you can't run the game without Visual Basics... Yet. I used winrar because it was the closest thing accessable to me when I was uploading. Bearing in mind that the game is only at a basic beta stage still, I didn't want to put it up with something which would have took a long amount of time, as I will have I upload it again at a later stage.

Yeah, sorry about that, I'll zip it when I get home.
