hey guys
its me again with the rock paper scissors game.

well after spending the whole day on it (ok not really) i was able to write a proper code for the game that would ask user for their input and randomly select one for the computer. now it should print out what each user chose and say who wins the round (ie you chose rock. computer chose paper. you lose. paper wraps rock) and keep a count of who is winning/ties.

its all in function format and i had to declare constants for the rock/paper/scissors/quit option as well as constants to signal who won/tie

here is my complete code:

#include <iostream>
#include <ctime>
#include <cstdlib>
using namespace std;

const int Rock = 1;
const int Paper = 2;
const int Scissors = 3;
const int Quit = 4;
const int CompWon = 5;
const int UserWon = 6;
const int Tie = 7;


int main()
{
	
	int User;
	int Computer;
	int obj;
	int choice;

	char answer = 'y';
	while (answer == 'y' || answer == 'Y')
	{


	choice = UserChoice();
	ComputerChoice();
	DetermineAndDisplayWinner(User,Computer);
	PrintObject(choice);

	cout << "Do you want to continue?";
	cin >> answer;
	} 

	return 0;
}

void Pause()

cin.ignore(80, '\n');
}

all the function prototypes that u see, MUST BE USED in the program.

the only problem i have is that it wont tell me who wins.

You need to fix your main function. You are not passing in the correct arguments !

int main()
{
	
	int User;
	int Computer;
	int choice;

	char answer = 'y';
	while (answer == 'y' || answer == 'Y')
	{


	User     = UserChoice();
	Computer = ComputerChoice();
	choice   = DetermineAndDisplayWinner(User,Computer);
	PrintObject(choice);

	cout << "Do you want to continue?";
	cin >> answer;
	} 

	return 0;
}

^^so that if they choose a number besides 1-4. they have to pick a valid choice.

I didn't see the need for it, especially since you already stated what the acceptable inputs were. It's true that you don't want to allow erroneous inputs, but its not a pace-maker application.
