    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    struct User
    {
           int UHP; // Users Current Hit Points
           int max_UHP; // Users Maximum Hit Points
    };
    struct Challenger
    {
           int CHP; // Challengers Hit Points
           int max_CHP; // Challengers Maximum Hit Points
    };
    int main()
    {
        int Command;
        
        User Player;
        Challenger Enemy;
        
        Player.max_UHP = 100;
        Player.UHP = 100;
        Enemy.max_CHP = 100;
        Enemy.CHP = 100;
        int UATK = rand()%10; // Users Attack points
        int CATK = rand()%10; // Challengers Attack points
    
        cout<<"As your walking down a path a cloaked swordsman ambushes you.\n";
        cout<<"He then challenges you to a fight and you humbly accept.\n";
        cout<<"You can Attack.\n";
        cin>> Command;
        if ( Command == "AttacK" || Command == "attack" ) { Enemy.CHP - UATK;
        cout<<"You took out ">> UATK <<" points.\n"; }
        cin.get();
    }

    ok i fixed most of it but theres still something wrong with it and i have no idea why

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <cstring>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    string Command;
    
    struct User
    {
           int UHP; // Users Current Hit Points
           int max_UHP; // Users Maximum Hit Points
    };
    struct Challenger
    {
           int CHP; // Challengers Hit Points
           int max_CHP; // Challengers Maximum Hit Points
    };
    int main()
    {
        User Player;
        Challenger Enemy;
        
        Player.max_UHP = 100;
        Player.UHP = 100;
        Enemy.max_CHP = 100;
        Enemy.CHP = 100;
        int UATK = rand()%10; // Users Attack points
        int CATK = rand()%10; // Challengers Attack points
    
        cout<<"As your walking down a path a cloaked swordsman ambushes you.\n";
        cout<<"He then challenges you to a fight and you humbly accept.\n";
        cout<<"You can Attack.\n";
        cin>> Command;
        if ( Command == "AttacK" || Command == "attack" ) { Enemy.CHP - UATK;
        cout<<"You took out ">> UATK <<" points.\n"; }
        cin.get();
    }

    Could you be more specific on what exactly we are looking for?

    Compile wise

    Code:
        cout<<"You took out ">> UATK <<" points.\n"; }
    should be
    Code:
        cout<<"You took out "<< UATK <<" points.\n"; }

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <string>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    string Command;
    
    struct User
    {
    	int UHP; // Users Current Hit Points
    	int max_UHP; // Users Maximum Hit Points
    };
    struct Challenger
    {
    	int CHP; // Challengers Hit Points
    	int max_CHP; // Challengers Maximum Hit Points
    };
    int main()
    {
    	User Player;
    	Challenger Enemy;
    
    	Player.max_UHP = 100;
    	Player.UHP = 100;
    	Enemy.max_CHP = 100;
    	Enemy.CHP = 100;
    	int UATK = rand()%10; // Users Attack points
    	int CATK = rand()%10; // Challengers Attack points
    
    	cout<<"As your walking down a path a cloaked swordsman ambushes you.\n";
    	cout<<"He then challenges you to a fight and you humbly accept.\n";
    	cout<<"You can Attack.\n";
    	cin>> Command;
    	cin.ignore();
    	if ( Command == "AttacK" || Command == "attack" )
    	{ 
    		Enemy.CHP - UATK;
    		cout<<"You took out "<< UATK <<" points.\n"; 
    	}
    	cin.get();
    }
    notice

    Code:
    	cin>> Command;
    	cin.ignore();
    Your program is ending right away because cin.get() waits for a return \n (when you hit enter). The problem is its keeping the enter in queue after you enter the word attack. so after you get the input, you put cin.ignore() which will ignore the next return. Try this and it will work for you.

    I knew you were going to ask that.

    The rand function is dependent on a random "seed" which to make it simple, dictates how the numbers are generated.

    add the following to your code.

    Code:
    //Includes
    #include <time.h>
    
    ........
    
    int main()
    {
        srand( time(NULL) );
    ....
    return 0;
    }
    just add those two lines and your numbers will be much m roe random. This will seed the random number generator with the current time and make your numbers appear much more random.

    im sorry about this , I just cant get anything to particapte with me. Its not taking out the points from the hit points like its supposed to so even after the attack its still 100

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <cstdlib>
    #include <cstring>
    #include <time.h>
    
    
    using namespace std;
    
    string Command;
    
    struct User
    {
           int UHP; // Users Current Hit Points
           int max_UHP; // Users Maximum Hit Points
    };
    struct Challenger
    {
           int CHP; // Challengers Hit Points
           int max_CHP; // Challengers Maximum Hit Points
    };
    int main()
    {
        srand( time(NULL) );
        User Player;
        Challenger Enemy;
        
        Player.max_UHP = 100;
        Player.UHP = 100;
        Enemy.max_CHP = 100;
        Enemy.CHP = 100;
        int UATK = rand()%10; // Users Attack points
        int CATK = rand()%10; // Challengers Attack points
    
        cout<<"As your walking down a path a cloaked swordsman ambushes you.\n";
        cout<<"He then challenges you to a fight and you humbly accept.\n";
        cout<<"You can Attack.\n";
        cin>> Command;
        cin.ignore();
        if ( Command == "Attack" || Command == "attack" ) { Enemy.max_CHP-UATK;
        cout<<"You took out "<< UATK <<" hp.\n"; }
        cout<<"The challenger has "<< Enemy.CHP <<" hp left.\n";
        cin.get();
    }

    Code:
    if ( Command == "Attack" || Command == "attack" ) { Enemy.CHP-=UATK;
