Text based console games...
I need a library that provides the following:
o Text based graphics control (cursor placement, etc)
o Keyboard scanning (without echo or stopping the program to wait for input)
o Bonus points for portability
o Bonus points for rudimentary sound control (Beeps and tweets are fine)
The ones that I know of are:
curses.h - UNIX only, posts exits for windows but they seem flakey. I've tried using then and been disapointed.
conio.h - Borland only, but I understand that VC++ has something similar (anybody know what it is/how it works?)
Does anyone else have sugestions?
