    commandline on delay or something:P

    Code:
    do{
    	randomize();
    	result = rand() % 15;
    
    	sleep(1);
    
       if (result == 1||result == 6||result == 7)
       {
       sleep(1);
       textattr(4 << 0); cprintf("The enemy strikes you with his pow\r\n\n");
       health-=4;
       cout << "fitte2 : " << health << " : fitte : " << enemyhp << "\n\n";
       if (health<=0) {dead();}
       continue;
       }
    
       else if (result == 2||result == 3||result == 4||result == 5||result == 8||result == 9)
       {
       sleep(1);
       textattr(2 << 0); cprintf("You hit the enemy hard in its chest\r\n\n");
       enemyhp-= 4;
       cout << "fitte2 : " << health << " : fitte : " << enemyhp << "\n\n";
       continue;
       }
    
       else {textattr(3 << 0); cprintf("you dodge enemies blow!\r\n\n");
       cout << "fitte2 : " << health << " : fitte : " << enemyhp << "\n\n";
    
       }
    while (enemyhp > 0);
    }
    ok.. what I need to know is how I can make a comand line each time the health and enemy health display's, but not so that you need to freeze the program, like the delay and stuff goes on. is this possible?

    On an aside, you shouldn't be calling randomize inside your loop. You only need to call that one time in your entire program.

    Well, if I call randomize outside the loop, you will dodge, hit or get hit all the time. the fight would have no effect:P if this is what you ment. ok.. what I ment was can I like have a comandline open for writing like 1-> sec? like this (makeing up my own commands to make an example)

    Code:
    {
    cout << "you have 3 seconds to answer!\n;
    time(3) {cin.get >> question1;}
                  if (queston1 == yes) {point++; continue;}
                  else {cout << "Wrong!"; fault++;}
    }
    if you understand what Im after more now:P thanks.

    No you won't. You call randomize only one time. You then call rand whenever you need a new random number.
