    Need help with some errors in my game

    I'va made a game and i'm trying to add highscore list onto it, i'm allmost there i just get some errors that i can't figure out. I think it will work nicely when these errors are gone.

    Code:
    main.c: In function `PrintHighscore':
    main.c:481: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 5)
    main.c:485: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 5)
    highscore.c: In function `InsertScore':
    highscore.c:34: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
    highscore.c:42: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
    highscore.c: In function `SaveHighscore':
    highscore.c:61: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 4)
    highscore.c: In function `LoadHighscore':
    highscore.c:90: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
    highscore.c:91: warning: format argument is not a pointer (arg 3)
    highscore.c: In function `InsHighscore':
    highscore.c:115: warning: assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast
    These once i can't figure out.. I've got alittle help from this forum and some m8's to get this far.
    Could someone take a look and come with some suggestions of how to fix these errors.
    It would be great.

    I don't know what you expect us to tell you without actually knowing what lines 481, 485, 34, 42, 61, 90, 91, and 115 say (plus some context), but I like guessing, so here goes:
    The first two lines (and all the similar ones) say you're trying to scanf or printf, but you forgot the format string (the part in quotes with all the % signs). The assignment makes integer from pointer without a cast mean you're trying to assign a string to an integer value, instead of parsing the string to get the integer out.

    How'd I do?

    You are either not correctly prototyping your functions or you are not using them correctly. I am guessing probably the latter at this point.

    Without seeing the code, you're wasting your time. Obviously, you're mixing pointers with data, helter-skelter. That's all I can say from the list of errors.

    Study your printf/scanf call, and make sure the parameter matches the format.

    As for the others, post some code around those lines.
    - missing prototypes
    - mis-placed ( )
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
