What is fallout-terminal-clone?

fallout-terminal-clone is a recreation of the "terminal hacking" system
in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas developed with curses. It runs directly
in your terminal or command prompt. I made this as a fun and interesting
way to explore C.

Instructions

Use the arrow keys (by default) to move, and ENTER to choose your selected letter. Ctrl-C to quit.

Building

WINDOWS

    Requirements:
    MinGW installed with the following packages:
        - mingw32-gcc
        - mingw32-pdcurses (dev and dll)

    Once the above dependencies are satisfied, simply open
    a command prompt in the source directory and run:
        make

    If you get an error about gcc not being found, you most
    likely didn't add MinGW tools to your path. Either do
    that, or change the line:
CC = gcc
    to read:
CC = C:\MinGW\bin\gcc
    (assuming you installed MinGW in that location)

LINUX

    Requirements:
        - gcc
        - ncurses

    Once the above dependencies are satisfied, simply open
    a terminal in the source directory and run:
        make

OSX

    Requirements:
        Xcode Tools (just run xcode-select --install)

    Once this is finished, simply open
    a terminal in the source directory and run:
        make

TODO list:

Decent looking screen centering
Add a typing animation for the guesses
Possible mouse support?

Bugs:

Fallout 3 and New Vegas don't seem to play well with the launching.

The OSX binary may segfault with error 11. This hasn't happened with the
couple macs I've tested it on, but my friend's mac does it constantly. It
may have something to do with having development xcode tools installed.
