    see atachment for the cpp file. Oh and while i doubt anyone will wanna steal this (or learn from it, now that i think about it... whatever) please dont take credit for this, it has caused me many sleepless nights working on it.

    hrm, interesting user name

    If this is you first game then you've done very well!!

    It's just a little unrealistic when the computer takes his turn. Usually, if a human hits one of their opponents ships, theyll continue to shoot around the same area until the ship is sunk, whereas your "Mr. CPU" just continues to fire randomly.... how about you put a little bit of AI in there to tell it to continue firing in the same area until the ship has been sunk, then go back to random shots or something like that??

    You could go one step further and get it to fire shots into open spaces rather than in the middle of a bunch of misses!!

    just a couple of suggestions.

    good luck

    Yea, it is my first game really...
    I know the AI sucks, but this was my programming final and I had just finished debugging my ultra buggy computer placement and i wasnt too worried about AI... Once I finish the snake game a friend of mine and I are working on, I might come back to this...
    Ill post the snake game too.

    Krusier is spelled Cruiser

    great game


    Though i had to comment these to lines to compile it:

    Code:
    --------------------Configuration: battleshipv3 - Win32 Debug--------------------
    Compiling...
    battleshipv3.cpp
    C:\Downloads\battleshipv3.cpp(694) : warning C4129: 's' : unrecognized character escape sequence
    C:\Downloads\battleshipv3.cpp(695) : warning C4129: 's' : unrecognized character escape sequence
    Linking...
    
    battleshipv3.exe - 0 error(s), 2 warning(s)

    Just add another '\' like this:

    outfile.open("C:\\scores.txt", ios::app);

    Man, DJGPP don't have windows.h, I'll have to re-install Dev-C++ to run Battleship.

    That way is cool in all, but if you want to be as lazy...I mean time efficient as possible, type it this way:
    Code:
    outfile.open("c:/scores.txt", ios::app);
    Windows is okay with either way.

    Yea, I know, but Carrier also uses a C, so i figured having a "Kruiser" would eliminate confusion... Especially cos I use the first letter of the ship name to represent it on the board.

    You can still compile with warnings and I ran outta time to figure out why it didn't work.

    Unhappy

    Um, I'm using Dev-C++ 4 and whn i insert the code, and press compile, it comes up with a dos window saying "63" and the closes.

    I am quite new to C++.

    I take that back... (my friend in programming class actually wrote it, but whatever) When you put in a path like c:\scores.txt, c++ looks at the forward slash and thinks its some sort of command like \n. it checks the next character and finds out that its not valid as any sort of command, so it decides to ignore the fact that it thought it was a command in the first place. Doesnt hurt anything.
