Game looks pretty damn good for a first attempt. If I was you I would do away with all the are you sure you want to do this? I would just have it when you click on a door it will automaticly go in the door and not ask you if you want to enter the next room. same goes for picking up stuff.
Other the nthat great job what grade did you get\?
all the programming classes i have taken have been a complete waste of time. I learn a lot more and save a ton of money just buying good books and creating programs then I ever could in a slow passed programming class where you have to go at the pace of the slowest students.
Dietal makes good books I probably didn't spell that right. The best programming book I have read so far is for Visual Basic .Net and C# called Programming with OOP. Very good information and it isn't cluttered with a bunch of non real world examples.
