    a point in the right direction

    Hi all,

    I am making a basic football managment game and i am struggling to store values in the league table, heres what i have so far.

    its not the whole program just the part where i need to add up values.

    Code:
    if (team1 > team2)        // if team 1 wins
    {
    
    wont1++; 
    gfort1[1] = + team1;  
    ggainst1[1] = + team2;
    pointst1 = + 3;
    }
    
    if (team2 > team1)         // if team 2 wins
    {
    wont2++;
    gfort2[1] = + team2;
    ggainst2[1] = + team1;
    pointst2 = + 3;
    }
    
    if (team1 == team2)            // if a draw
    {
    gfort1[1] + team1;
    ggainst1[1] + team2;
    gfort2[1] + team2;
    ggainst2[1] + team1;
    pointst1 = + 1;
    pointst2 = + 1;
    }
    The variables team 1 & 2 are random numbers.

    This might be absolute crap, but what i want to do is everytime team 1 or 2 wins i want to add 3 to their points or 1 point if they draw.

    Also gfor1 & 2 need to store values for goals scored
    And ggainst1 & 2 need to store values for goals against

    Cheers guys

    First, change pointst1 = + 3; to pointst1 += 3; (and all others that does the same).

    Second, gfort1[1] + team1; calculates the sum, but doesn't do anything with it. If you want to add team1 to gfort[1], then change + to +=.

    Use the search function at the top of the page and look for "bubblesort"
    It's a sorting algorithm if you're wondering.
