I created a bowling game, Which for the most part works correctly. I toiled for hours trying to figure out how to do the scoring so i gave up. Its fairly simple code so not much of a description needed.

/*This Is the longest project I have planned, It will likeley take over
a month and It will be a hard one. I plan on creating a bowling game in which
you choose the power, spin, and location and the game will determine how
many pins that combination will knock down, add it to your score and change
the frame. If a strike occurs on the last (tenth) frame it will allow for another
frame. Hopefully like my other project I will include a highscore list to see
the skillful bowlers in this wonky bowling attempt*/

sorry for the overlapping text, and despite the look here, the big blocky things do actually look like a lane with bowling pins in a console window

I LIKE THIS PROGRAM, BECAUSE HELP ME TO MAKE MY PROJEK TUTORIAL . THANK YOU! SO MUCH
:lol:

1)Main should have a type: int main (void) 2) O-o-out dated: goto begin; 3) What's with the indentation?
4) Seed rand only once, at the start of the app.
5) Could you have made this any less portable?

sorry mautd, when I wrote this program I had no formal experience my entire knowledge of C++ was based off tutorials. and there was no real reason to make it portable, if you are speaking of linux then just include the cstdlib header and replace "cls" with "clear".
As to A.FATHA I'm glad I could help.
