Hi guys, when I was working on this game for school I ran into a weird linker error, LNK2019. It bugs me to no avail, so hopefully you guys can help me. It seems to be a problem with the string pas. I submitted alternate values for where they would be referenced in other header files.

This was in VC++ 2010

FYI
You need to add 3 txt files called player1.txt, player2.txt, player3.txt for it to work

//#include "mainscreen.h"
#include <string>
#include <conio.h>
#include <fstream>
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>

int ref();
int write(int & nav, int & limit);

//void setup(int & new1, int & new2, int & new3, int & nav)
void setup()

	int level = 0;
	int new1 = 0;
	int new2 = 0;
	int new3 = 0;
	int nav = 1;

	int limit = 0;
	if (new1 == 0 || new2 == 0 || new3 == 0)

	cout << "Enter your characters name (Max displayed will be 10): ";
	limit = 10;
