Help with tile size and c++ please
Been playing since the late 90's, lurking since the mid 00's, posting on and off for a few years, and now I am finally starting to code.
I am learning C++ at university, and for my major project I am looking into some serious Roguelike development. It's shaping up to be a sci-fi Roguelike with some adventure aspects mixed in.
I have my basic map and movement functions working and am learning my way around the curses library and to be honest, I am having a blast!
My question however, is this.
How do I change the tile width in the windows terminal? I want square tiles and so far google and forum searches have come up with very little.
Thanks in advance

I imagine there's a way to change the tile size from within your program by sending instructions to the underlying shell, but terminals only know rows and columns. The only way to change "tile width" would be to change the font size etc. of the character set your terminal is using, AFAIK.
