    First error:

    You're declaring multiple classes like multiple variables. You can't do that; I have a feeling you didn't mean to use "class".

    Second error:

    You either missed a variable type, or you're trying to set the values of multiple predefined variables all in one line using commas. If it's the first, add the variable type. If it's the second, you need to separate them using semicolons, not commas.

    Third error:

    Assuming "fout" is just a typo specific to here, the first thing is an input operator; it should be an output operator.

    1. class is a keyword, it looks here like you've used it to identify a class. Try using something similar, eg
    Code:
    class MyClass
    {
    //definition
    };
    
    MyClass item1, item2;  //etc, etc.
    2. not so sure about the 2nd error, it may be related to the first though.

    3. Assuming you have declared fout, the only problem is the confusion between insertion and extraction operators. Use this instead
    Code:
    fout << "Inventory Item 1: " << item1 << endl;

    and i used class because i get this error when i made it char

    `class string' used where a `char' was expected
    then with clas si get the other error

    ------

    for the
    Code:
    class MyClass
    {
    //definition
    };
    
    MyClass item1, item2;  //etc, etc.
    i never used classes before i was just trying to get the errors fixed, but wut would take place of //definition

    PHP Code:
    if (charactertype == 1)
    {
       
    gold=75;
       
    health=100
      
    magic=60;
       ...;

    You nee to add { and } and each item should be ended with ; instead of ,

    ok think of a class as an object, the types of data you need to describe that data and the different things that the object can do. The things it can do are member function and the way it is described is through data members. Something whihc might be appropriate for you might be:
    Code:
    class Barbarian
    {
    public:
       Barbarian( );     //default constructor
       ~Barbarian( );  //destructor
    
       //some typical member functions
       void setName( char* name );  //change the name
       char* getName( );   //get the Barbarians name
       void draw( );  //if it is graphical
    
    private:
       char* name;
       int age;
       int experiencePoints;
       int magicPoints
       Weapon currentWeapon;
    };
    
    
    //now you can declare a Barbarian like you would declare an int, eg
    
    Barbarian me;
    me.setName( "endo" )
    There are many other things that could go in here, the possibilities are endless - depends on you really.


    One other thing, change this:

    Code:
    cout << "Choose your characters name." << endl ;
    cin >> player ;
    cout << "Choose what kind of character to be." << endl ;
    cout << "1. Mage 2. Barbarian 3. Warrior 4. Archer" << endl ;
    cin >> charactertype ;
       if (charactertype == 1)
          gold=75, health=100, magic=60, attack=3, aim=7, defence=9, item1=wizardybook, item2=basicstaff, item3=robe, item4=manapotion, item5=hppotion, item6=hppotion, item7=hppotion, item8=hppotion, item9=hppotion, item10=empty, item11=empty, item12=empty, item13=empty, item14=empty, item15=empty, item16=empty, item17=empty, item18=empty, item19=empty, item20=empty, item21=empty, item22=empty, item23=empty, item24=empty, item25=empty, item26=empty, item27=empty, item28=empty, item29=empty, item30=empty;
       else if(charactertype == 2)
          gold=75, health=100, magic=0, attack=15, aim=10, defence=15, item1=hatchet, item2=axe, item3=stonesmallshield, item4=leathercloths, item5=hppotion, item6=hppotion, item7=hppotion, item8=hppotion, item9=hppotion, item10=empty, item11=empty, item12=empty, item13=empty, item14=empty, item15=empty, item16=empty, item17=empty, item18=empty, item19=empty, item20=empty, item21=empty, item22=empty, item23=empty, item24=empty, item25=empty, item26=empty, item27=empty, item28=empty, item29=empty, item30=empty;
       else if(charactertype == 3)
          gold=75, health=100, magic=9, attack=13, aim=13, defence=11, item1=dagger, item2=mediumsword, item3=bronzesmallshield, item4=bronzeplatewh, item5=hppotion, item6=hppotion, item7=hppotion, item8=hppotion, item9=hppotion, item10=empty, item11=empty, item12=empty, item13=empty, item14=empty, item15=empty, item16=empty, item17=empty, item18=empty, item19=empty, item20=empty, item21=empty, item22=empty, item23=empty, item24=empty, item25=empty, item26=empty, item27=empty, item28=empty, item29=empty, item30=empty;
       else if(charactertype == 4)
          gold=75, health=100, magic=9, attack=12, aim=16, defence=11, item1=dagger, item2=arrows, item3=leathercloths, item4=hppotion, item5=hppotion, item6=hppotion, item7=hppotion, item8=hppotion, item9=hppotion, item10=empty, item11=empty, item12=empty, item13=empty, item14=empty, item15=empty, item16=empty, item17=empty, item18=empty, item19=empty, item20=empty, item21=empty, item22=empty, item23=empty, item24=empty, item25=empty, item26=empty, item27=empty, item28=empty, item29=empty, item30=empty;
    to a switch statement:
    Code:
    switch( charactertype )
    {
    case 1:
       //assign all that stuff for a Mage.
       break;
    
    case 2:
       //assign all that stuff for a Barbarian.
       break;
    
    case 3:
       //assign all that stuff for a Warrior.
       break;
    
    case 4:
       //assign all that stuff for an Archer.
       break;
    
    default:
       break;
    }

    wust the difference between the public: and the private: in your class example

    public - Anything has access to the data.
    private - Only member functions of the class have access.
    protected - Only the base class and classes derived from it have acces.

    Eg.[CODE]
    class DOG
    {
