    You might want to re-read line 14 and ask yourself why you wrote what you wrote.

    You should move this code up into your main():
    Code:
       char yourname [40] ;
      cout << "(Made By Job and Joost) \n";
      cout << "What is your name Sir? \n";
      cout << "Sir "; cin >>   yourname;
      cout << "Hello Sir " << yourname << "! \n";
      cout << "Welcome to the great lands of Aradona. You can navigate in the area by typing: \n";
      cout << "1 : Search for a place to train. \n";
      cout << "2 : Go to the armoury. \n";
      cout << "3 : \n";
      cout << "__________________________ \n";
      cout << "Go to: " << " ";
      int action;
      {cin >> action;
      cout << "__________________________ \n";}
      
       if(action==1) 
       {
       cout << "Wich way do you want to go?\n";
       cout <<"1 : Karadoune \n";
       cout <<"2 : Yaramana  \n";
       cout <<"3 : Rotjesland \n";
       cout <<"____________________________\n";
       cout <<"Go to: " << " ";
       cin >> action;
       cout << "__________________________\n";
       }
       
       if(action==1)
       {
       int lvl;
       lvl = 05;
       cout << "You are walking in the desert, suddenly a desertspider attacks you!\n Defend yourself, Engarde!"; 
       cout <<"The level of the desert spider is 0";
       printf ("Your number is %d\n", r);
       cout <<"___________________________ \n";
       cout <<"What will you do?          |\n";
       cout <<"1 : Attack (75 % cos)      |\n";
       cout <<"2 : Run    (35 % cos)	   |\n";
       cout <<"___________________________|\n\n";
       }
       
    if(action==2)
    	{
    	cout <<"You are walking in the green grass of the land of Aradona,\nAnd you are walking towards Yaramana,\nLuckily nobody can see you and you survive the trip.\n"; 
       cout <<"___________________________\n";
    	}
    	if(action==3)
    	{
    	cout <<"You are walking in Rotjesland, and you find a rotje\n";
    	cout <<"You light it and it explodes...\n";
    	cout <<"You have died...";
    	} 
    	
    	else
       {
       cout << "Error\n";
       cout << "__________________________ \n";
       }
    Or make it into a function, and call it from main.

    but the error about GetRand stays...
    what can we do about that?

    oh sorry, no it works now but there is still a problem because now the generator of random numbers doesn't work any more
    Code:
    // job3.cpp : main project file.
    
    #include "stdafx.h"
    #include <iostream> 
    #include <stdio.h> 
    #include <stdlib.h> 
    #include <ctime>
    
    using namespace std;
    int GetRand(int min, int max);
    int i, r;
    int main()
    { 
    	
      for (i = 0; i < 1; i++)
      {
        r = GetRand(5, 12);
        
      }
      
      return(0);
    }
    
    int GetRand(int min, int max)
    {
      static int Init = 0;
      int rc;
      
      if (Init == 0)
      {
       
        srand(time(0));
        Init = 1;
      }
    
      
      rc = (rand() % (max - min + 1) + min);
    	
    	
    	
    	char yourname [40] ;
      cout << "(Made By Job and Joost) \n";
      cout << "What is your name Sir? \n";
      cout << "Sir "; cin >>   yourname;

    > random numbers doesn't work any more
    rc = (rand() % (max - min + 1) + min);
    ...
    return (rc);

    1. You don't use it at all
    2. You ignore the return result anyway.

    3. if(action==1)
    You have TWO of these.

    int lvl;
    lvl = 05;

    How about
    lvl = rc;
    cout <<"The level of the desert spider is " << lvl << endl;

    Even better, put most of the functionality into another function, and make getrand() return just a random value.

    How can i get rc change per attack?
    Code:
    if(action==1)
       {
       rc = (rand() % (20 - 5 + 1) + 5);
       int lvl;
       lvl = rc;
       cout <<"You attack the desertspider!\n";
       cout <<"___________________________\n";
       cout <<"You hit the spider for " <<lvl <<endl;
       int levl;
       levl = rc;
       rc = (rand() % (4 - 0 + 1) + 0);
       cout <<"The spider hits you for " <<levl <<endl;
       }
    this doesnt work because the attack stays the same for you and for the spider

    Help please!

    Try moving the second rand up a line.
