hey, i'm writing a piece of code and i got an error that i really don't understand. The code is below, but i had to post it all because i can't even understand the error, so i posted it all.

The Error:

1>main.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol "int __cdecl combat(void)" (?combat@@YAHXZ) referenced in function "void __cdecl North1(void)" (?North1@@YAXXZ)

sorry that the code is so long, as i said, i'm not sure were i've gone wrong so i posted it all.

Case sensitivity!

your declared function

int combat();

does not match your implemented

int Combat () {

function names must match in correct case
