ya but its easier because its color codded, all you do is there a little thing in the box where you type what your saying that says:

just press that then past the code in between there.
or just type

Here is this good? Srry im new to these forums..

looks pretty good to me, but i have a couple questions.

how did you do your: press enter to continue thing, and do you know how to do random numbers? im working on a rpg game myself. if you want send me a private message and we can work on one together.

>> and these are the erros i get when i try ot compile it:
>> main.cpp:4: error: '::main' must return 'int'

See Should I use void main() or int main()?

thx tht helped for that error but now it's givng me more errors.

this is wht my build log said:

C:/Documents and Settings/Owner/Desktop/Rpg Game/main.cpp:15: undefined reference to `Wait()'
C:/Documents and Settings/Owner/Desktop/Rpg Game/main.cpp:17: undefined reference to `Crossroads()'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
Process terminated with status 1 (0 minutes, 0 seconds)
2 errors, 0 warnings


and i am using code Blocks comlier don't know if that matters or not.

and skorm im just acutally following a tutorial and just learniing the basics but that would be cool to work on one when i get more expeirenced.

>> undefined reference to `Wait()'

In Code::Blocks, be sure to add the Helper.cpp file ( Wait() is defined there) to your project and rebuild. Do the same with the file containing Crossroads() .

The compiler is not seeing the definitions of these two functions at the moment.

thx tht helped again but for some reason some more errors have popped up when i try to build it now it says:

The compiler seems to be spot-on here, you really need to add a semicolon before cin as suggested.
;)

i tried but i don't know where to put it :( i tried to put it before cin itself an then i tried to put it after cout << "Press ENTER to continue\n" but it doesnt work?

That sounds confusing, I think the following should do ..

#include "Library.h"

//HELPER FUNCTIONS

void Wait()
{
    cout << "Press ENTER to continue\n" ; // <--- added semicolon

    cin.ignore(1);
}

#include "Library.h"

//HELPER FUNCTIONS

void Wait()
{
    cout << "Press ENTER to continue\n" ; // <--- added semicolon

    cin.ignore(1);
}

i tried that it doesn't work and it also says theres something worng with
void Wait() may tht be the problem?

>> i tried that it doesn't work

So, you are getting a compiler error?

yeah the compiler says somethign is wrong

>> yeah the compiler says somethign is wrong

I see, could you post the error message?

heres all it says on the build log

Hmm, this is going round in circles, I'm having hard time in believing that the semicolon is there properly placed (see the above post) -- could you post the helper.cpp file again?

Edited 6 Years Ago by TechieNoob: forgot to add something

Aha .. as a matter of the fact, you absolutely have to put that semicolon there i.e.

#include "Library.h"

//HELPER FUNCTIONS

void Wait()
{
    cout << "Press ENTER to continue\n" ; // <--- semicolon required by C++

    cin.ignore(1);
}

Now, be sure to use the above helper.cpp and rebuild -- what happens?

Duh, something is amiss here, you might as well zip the project (*.h, *cpp) and post it as an attachment.

Alright, your project includes only the main.cpp file, through which you try to include another source file -- that is wrong. Generally, only include .h files in .cpp files.

Basically you want to add your source and header files to your Code::Blocks project so that they are visible in the Manager View. Then, when you build the project, the source files will get compiled (without being included anywhere). When setting up the project, try to do it in manageable steps (read: your code compiles), instead of adding everything at once and having maybe a hundred errors or so.

As to the semicolon-problem you are having, I cannot reproduce it (compiling your project as-is) - the only error was about undefined reference to Crossroads() , which is correct.

thx for the help now i see what was wrong :D

thx for the help now i see what was wrong :D

now i have one more problem then it will run

heres the code :

#include "Library.h"

//HELPER FUNCTIONS

void Wait()
{
    cout << "Press ENTER to continue\n";

    cin.ignore(1);
}

heres the errors:

This suggests that you have the statement #include "Helper.cpp" in one or more files -- you DON'T want to #include .CPP files.

:) thx for the help i finally got it running lets consider this thread CLSOED
