if you don´t buy the newest version (5 should do it) it shouldn´t be too expensive.
and the other possibility is well known...

All right here it goes tup. Learn c++ and do a dos program. All it does is run down in the code. You dont need classes or anything. All you have to do is something like ****.

Code:
cout << "You found a cat feed it to the dog or kick it?\n";
cout << "1 - feed\n 2 - kick\n";
cin >> a;
while(a == 1 || a == 2)
{
if (a == 1)
{
cout << "The dog says mmmmmm now lets walk\n";
cout << "1 - left\n 2 - right\n";
cin >> a;
//another if goes here...
}
else if( a == 2)
{
 cout << "the cat flies into a river and you see something shinny\n";
cout << "1 - pick it up\n 2 - leave it\n";
cin >> a;
//another if goes here
}
}
Hope that helps...and please dont try to acctualy compile this code I did it really fast just as an example.

ok, i haver two things to say:

1.Tepus, are u looking to make a DOS text game? if so, go with C, that ****s ez. WIndows? Go with VB, that ****s even easier. To make a text game, u wont need to use 80% of the buttons in WHatever compilere u have.

2.FM, your replys are always pointless. Text games suck? thats an opinion, and we dont want to know about it. SO keep your negative comments to yourself.

Wtf this is a forum where ideas and opionions flow freely. I dont agree with you guys closing some of my threads(mainly because they are in the "Off-topic" section where things dont need to be "on-topic") but I'm not going to cry about it. If you cant deal with what people say just f|_|cking skip it. People are people and should be heard just cause you( 1 of meny people in this forum) dont want to see what somebody else has to say doesnt mean others dont.

Sorry about that anyways I would stick with C++ even in windows. VB is one of the ugliest languages there is its almost as bad as java...
