    Exclamation [VB 2012] Need help with a Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock game

    Okay, for my last project in my class I'm to construct a game that follows these guidelines:

    So now that I've got that out of the way, I'm having some issues with my code. Mainly one issue, here's my code with the bold indicators where my problem is, since it won't go bold faced:
    Code:
    Public Class frmCapstone
        Dim numWinUser As Integer
        Dim numWinComp As Integer
        Dim numDraws As Integer
        Dim userName, roundNum As String
        Dim computer As String
        Dim c1, c2, c3, c4, c5 As Integer
        Private Sub chkGame_CheckedChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles chkGame.CheckedChanged
            grpGame.Enabled = False
     
            userName = CStr(txtName.Text)
            roundNum = CStr(txtRounds.Text)
     
            If chkGame.Checked Then
                grpGame.Enabled = True
            Else
                grpGame.Enabled = False
            End If
        End Sub
     
        Private Sub btnPlay_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btnPlay.Click
            Dim randomNum As New Random
            Dim winner As String
            computer = randomNum.Next(1, 6)
     
            c1 = chkRock.Checked
            c2 = chkPaper.Checked
            c3 = chkScissors.Checked
            c4 = chkLizard.Checked
            c5 = chkSpock.Checked
     
            DisplayResults(numWinUser, numWinComp, numDraws)
     
            winner = DetermineWinner(userName, computer)
            Select Case grpGame
                Case Is = chkRock.Checked
                    lstResults.Items.Clear()
                    lstResults.Items.Add("The winner of this round is " & winner)
                    lstResults.Items.Add("Your chose " & c1)
                    lstResults.Items.Add("Computer's choice was " & randomNum)
                Case Is = chkPaper.Checked
                    lstResults.Items.Clear()
                    lstResults.Items.Add("The winner of this round is " & winner)
                    lstResults.Items.Add("Your chose " & c2)
                    lstResults.Items.Add("Computer's choice was " & randomNum)
                Case Is = chkScissors.Checked
                    lstResults.Items.Clear()
                    lstResults.Items.Add("The winner of this round is " & winner)

            If userName > computer Then
                Return "" & userName
                lstResults.Items.Add("Impressive. Most impressive. But you're not a Jedi yet!")

                lstResults.Items.Add("Epic Fail with a side of Picard Facepalm")
            End If
     
        End Function
     
        Sub DisplayResults(ByVal numWinUser As Integer, ByVal numWinComp As Integer, ByVal numDraws As Integer)
            txtWin.Text = CStr(numWinUser)
            txtLoss.Text = CStr(numWinComp)
            txtDraw.Text = CStr(numDraws)
     
            If numWinComp = 2 Then

        Sub DisplayCards(ByVal userName As String, ByVal computer As String)
            Select Case userName
                Case Is = chkRock.Checked = 1
                    picUser.Image = Image.FromFile("rock.jpg")
                Case Is = chkPaper.Checked = 2
                    picUser.Image = Image.FromFile("paper.png")
                Case Is = chkScissors.Checked = 3
                    picUser.Image = Image.FromFile("scissors.jpeg")
                Case Is = chkLizard.Checked = 4
                    picUser.Image = Image.FromFile("lizard.jpg")
                Case Is = chkSpock.Checked = 5
                    picUser.Image = Image.FromFile("spock.jpg")
            End Select
            Select Case computer
                Case Is = 1
                    picUser.Image = Image.FromFile("rock.jpg")
                Case Is = 2
                    picUser.Image = Image.FromFile("paper.png")
                Case Is = 3
                    picUser.Image = Image.FromFile("scissors.jpeg")
                Case Is = 4

            End Select
     
        End Sub
    End Class
    I was wondering how to fix this error. Also I had a couple of questions on how to add a couple of things in and where I should add them.

    First, I'm not sure what to use or how to utilize where I need it, but what would I use to determine a number of rounds that are played between the computer and the user. Secondly, how would I put in and where would I put in what each result would me (e.g. rock smashes scissors, Spock disproves paper, ect.) I know I've got some work ahead of me but any help would be appreciated.

    I'm going to upload my program to zippyshare for those who want to work with it hands on to help me. Thanks for all help in advance.

    David has a weird way of saying things but he is right..

    It's not good telling us you got errors.. Tell us what the error is.. What is it doing that it's not supposed to.. What is it supposed to be doing..

    In the code you posted, you say the error is on lstResults.Items.Add("Computer's choice was " & randomNum)... tell us What & Why??

    And looking at the code i can see a few issues, but then again not on the lines you highlighted..

    This is your School Project -- HOMEWORK -- and as a simple rule here, we do not do homework, we will guide you, give you hints, tips, code examples and plenty of advice.. but not the full answer.... How do you expect to learn if you do not do the work..

    P.S. look through your class book, everything you need to do this is already in there....
