    Battle sequence easter egg not working!

    I'm woking on tehbatlle sequnce for a game and an easter egg isn't working.
    Here's the code for one of the weapons.
    Code:
    int unarmed()
    {
        while (hp>0 && opphp>0)
        {
              cout<<"HP:"<<hp<<"\nOpponent's HP:"<<opphp<<"\n";
              cout<<"Weapon: Unarmed\n1. Karate Chop\n2. Punch\n3. Kick\n";
              unarmed:
              cin>>attack;
              switch (attack)
              {
                     case 1:
                          dmg=1;
                          break;
                     case 2:
                          dmg=(rand()%2)+1;
                          break;
                     case 3:
                          dmg=(rand()%3)+1;
                          break;
                     case 7:
                          dmg=opphp;
                          hit=(rand()%100);
                     default:
                             goto unarmed;
                             break;
              }
              if (attack != 7) hit=(rand()%2);
              if (hit==1)
              {
                         opphp=opphp-dmg;
                         cout<<"Opponent's HP-"<<dmg<<"!\n";
              }
              else
              {
                  cout<<"Miss!\n";
              }
              if (opphp<=0) break;
              oppdmg=(rand()%oppmaxhit)+1;
              opphit=(rand()%5);
              if (opphit==1)
              {
                            hp=hp-oppdmg;
                            cout<<"HP-"<<oppdmg<<"!\n";
              }
              else
              {
                  cout<<"Opponent missed!\n";
              }
        }
        if (opphp<=0) cout<<"Opponent's HP is 0! You Win!\n";
        if (hp<=0) cout<<"Your HP is 0... You lose...\n";
    }
    Please help, I don't know what's wrong. I think it's in the switch statement.

    Oops, I'm stupid. I figured out what went wrong. I forgot the break statement at the easter egg case statment.

    Just so you know for next time...

    Place yourself in our position (i.e. not knowing of your project) and read this:

    "Please help, I don't know what's wrong. I think it's in the switch statement."

    Now tell us if you have any idea of what could be wrong with the program. Errors ? If yes, compiler errors or linker errors ? No errors ? Then what happens ? And so on.. We can't figure that out.

    Consider calling srand() to seed the random number generator, unless you want the game to be exactly the same every time you play it. http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/...&id=1043284385

    I fixed it, as I said in my previous post, but the case 7: statement was falling through to the default: statement. I call srand() in my main() function.
