    Re: Programming Problem.

    What is Play? What is the way you want and what is actually happening? Did you try to debug it?

    Re: Programming Problem.

    Please expand on your original Post...

    Is Play a UDT, Boolen type, or integer value ????

    Have you tried your code in a Module or maybe a Dll Class ..

    Maybe you must include some error traps...

    Might i sujest
    Code:
    On Error Goto Game_Over
    Play = True
    :Game_over
    Play = False

    Re: Programming Problem.

    Thanks for all of the valuable suggestions. I think I will try

    Code:
      B= true;
      Play =( B & B)  | !( B& B);

    Re: Programming Problem.

    Why are you trying to make a game playing program? I refuse to give any answers or tips until I know why you are doing this in the first place, and after a few messages back and forth which will bump up my posting numbers, then I'll provide information pretty much identical to the two or three prior to my post.

    Sad... but true.

    Re: Programming Problem.

    All the best games are written in perl. You should probably switch to it too and not waste your time with C.
    Get this small utility to do basic syntax highlighting in vBulletin forums (like Codeguru) easily.
    Supports C++ and VB out of the box, but can be configured for other languages.

    Re: Programming Problem.

    Use:
    Code:
    Play++;
    It's faster (because it's obfuscated).
    Or, even better:
    Code:
    ++Play; /* even faster */
    Note: Removing the comment will give faster code! |33(0z shorter (0D3 1|\|(R3S3 SP33|)

    Will shorting all variables to single letters, and removing all whitespace/linebreaks also make it faster????

    Re: Programming Problem.

    YOUr program is OK Because you set Play To TRUE .True means it play ,So Your Code is Ok .Problem Is Not with This COde .Show us more Code . Too Try Play = 1 or Declare Variable Int i = 0 and do Play = i | !i.

    And Next Time post in Right Forum (C++ or VB), General Discussion/Chot-Chat is for Chit-Chat ,and Not Programming
