    >>y=ROWS//2;

    You have an extra slash there.

    }
    
    
    void locate(int col,int row)
    {
    	union REGS regs;

    	int86(VIDEO,&regs,&regs);
    
    }
    int rnd(int range)
    {
    	int r;
    
    	r=rand()%range;				//split up a random number
    }	
    
    void seedrnd(void)
    {
    	srand((unsigned)time(NULL);
    }
    And here is my Compile error. the problem is is that it is saying there is a problem with text that isnt there.

    Code:
    Miracle C Compiler (r3.2), written by bts.
    line   4: #include dos.h ignored--file not found.
    Compiling c:\documents and settings\justin\desktop\compiled files\drunkdude.c
    main
    
    c:\documents and settings\justin\desktop\compiled files\drunkdude.c: line 36: bad . ref
    '{ locate(x.y)'
    aborting compile
    Why is it missing the dos.h file? And why am I having wrong code in blank space. Man this stuff is annoying.

    >>locate(x.y)
    You should have a comma, not a period.

    Code:
    unrecognised types in comparison 'for(p=0'
    thats the new compiler error.

    Im really trying not to be too much of a pain in the ass but this is really confusing me. Its talking about the pause part i presume. Ugh what a pain.

    You might run into problems using this program on OSes such as Win2k, NT, or XP (?). You *might* consider an older dos compiler since one will have the functions that you're using int86 on now, and it will have dos.h.

    You can download the relic Turbo C for free, but you must register first. Look in the museum afterwards.

    pause may be the problem since you also have stdlib included. Try renaming that. I'd use a delay function from time.h instead of a loop since the loop will run at different speeds depending on the speed of the user's processor.

    HTH
    I haven't used a compiler in ages, so please be gentle as I try to reacclimate myself. :P

    Actually I am teaching myself over the summer and I picked up an old C book and flipped through it. (C for Dummies Vol one.) They have some sourse code in the back and I just entered it into one because it looked cool. But Ill get a different compiler too.

    Err, please don't delete posts that are relevant to the thread unless you really have to. Other people learn from your questions too, or at least, they would if they can read them
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    Ok. Sorry about that I just didnt want to put too much code onto this thread and make it confusing.
