Mad Libs in C++ (iD 2015)

For iD 2015, I decided to continue the trend from iD 2014, and make Mad Libs in C++ (just like in Java).

I managed to make four thanks to the wonders of Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V.

Some features according to the old page:

  • 20 minutes of fun
  • Characters get typed out every 50ms (slow typing)
  • Under 200 lines for each Mad Lib
  • Written in C++

To run the code, you’ll need Microsoft Visual Studio (VS 2015 recommended), which is a pretty big download. Sit tight and be patient if you’re doing so. Below are two downloads – one being the entire project, and one being just the .exe files.

(I also recommend just not doing this, because these mad libs are pretty underwhelming for the amount of time it’ll take for Visual Studio to download & install)

If you download just the executable files, you’ll probably run into a missing MSVCR120D.dll error. Pretty sure you’ll need Visual C++ 2013 redistributables to make it work. However, it might not, because it’s missing MSVCR120D.dll (versus MCVCR120.dll).
