Hi, I've been working on a text based game for a while (something like a single player MUD) and would love to port it from the console to a graphical window were I can use simple graphics and a nice medieval typeface. I tried to do it using shoes.rb, but the current code is too old to be used with bundler, so I was thinking about using gosu instead. Would you guys recommend it? Basically I want to make a console like interface that reacts to user input.
I think it'd work just fine, especially if you are going to add more "juice" as time progresses - things bouncing around, tweening etc.
Working with text can be a little tricky though - you should understand the difference between
Image#from_text. Also, Gosu has half-assed support for
&custom_entities; in text for which you can define an image as well as pseudo-HTML like
<b>bold</b> and <i>italic</i>, however these can be pretty slow if used with
You might want to look at my fidgit library, that manages what you need for the GUI (text areas, scrolling areas, text entry).
hi. I realise this is old but I just wondered how you got on with it? I have a couple of text based games that Ive written in Ruby and I would love to add just some simple images. Ive started playing with gosu a little bit, but Im not quite sure yet how to "make a console like interface that reacts to user input". Did you manage to do it?
