    Your intro() function keeps making me me itch

    Alternative:
    Code:
    void intro()
    {
      char str[] = "Tic-Tac-Toe";
      int i;
        
      for(i = 0;str[i];++i)
      {
        cout << str[i];
        Sleep(500);
      }
    
      cout << endl << endl;
    }

    Well, at the end of every loop you do z=1;

    How could it ever be player 2's turn if you keep making it player 1's turn?

    Using a decent indentation scheme and keeping your code blocks to a reasonable size (see below) would probably help you locate those kinds of issues a little easier.

    Also, you should really consider using a function for determining the winner. That's a lot of unnecessarily duplicated code. Just create a function and pass it the character to check for.

    i cant remember because i havent programmed in quite a while, but can you do this:

    Code:
    if( (arr[0][0]=='X' && arr[0][1]=='X' && arr[0][2]=='X') || (arr[1][0]=='X' && arr[1][1]=='X' && arr[1][2]=='X') || (arr[2][0]=='X' && arr[2][1]=='X' && arr[2][2]=='X') || (arr[0][0]=='X' && arr[1][1]=='X' && arr[2][2]=='X') || (arr[0][2]=='X' && arr[1][1]=='X' && arr[2][0]=='X') )
          {
                           cout << endl << p1 << " wins!!!";
                           z=-1;
                           break;
          }
