hello, fellow computer geeks.
I seem to be having a problem with this javascript code. It's for a new game that I am making in cloud9.io's developer.
when I run it, it executes everything up to the document.write("<img src='loading.gif' id='load' />"); and ignores everything else. I can't seem to get it to work at all, and it is really messing me up. Thanks in advance.

I think wriring html code within script is creating problem, keeep document.write fucntion comented or write them with with normal/standard html

well, i deleted the enum, and the problem is that it just isn't executing the document.write and writeln, period. i commented out everything except the document.write, and it isn't doing anything. My cloud9 url is: https://c9.io/mblan180131/raze_burst_1-1

if you want to collaborate with me, my normal times are from 4:00PM to 5:30PM, and from 7:00PM to 8:45PM.

AAAAAH ITS NOT WORKING ITS NOT YOU ITS THE C9 COMPILER I THINK BUT STILL BRAIN F***!

You may consider toning that down a bit mb. My eyes are hurting, confusing my brain, which thinks my ears should be hurting.

Mostly the things you got wrong are syntax errors.
The line I've altered are tailed as "Modified" comment, Please check them out.
Some points here:
The enum is a javascript reserved word you can't use anymore.
Javascript always use var to delcare whatover type of data or objects.
In switch statment the parentheses in case expression can be omitted.

You code is working now.
