In my free time I'm learning to program. I'm pretty much using this thread as a terrible blog.

The first few replies in this topic are about the Combat Simulator game listed below.

Programs made so far -- newest to oldest -- Still need to add a few download links:


If you're running Windows XP, I doubt that any of these will actually work. Things created in Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 don't work in Windows XP under the default settings, and I didn't know that at the time.

I've been playin with Microsoft Visual Studio C+ 2010 Express, its free and pretty easy to learn.
Youtube tutorials have already show me the basics. All I've managed to do with it so far is import some source and fiddle with it.

The game crashed once I started fighting Zeonix. I guess the amazing powers colliding must have been too much for my computer to handle. **** happens

Did it give you an error message when it crashed, or it just shut down? I have no idea why it would have crashed, that's never happened to me and the program isn't that complicated to begin with.

If you press enter during the last fight, the program automatically closes. It could have been that. Not entirely sure how to fix that, though.

Mine just repeats some strange thing over and over ad infinitum. I get to enter the difficulty and my name.

I think if you enter in a name that's too big, or a name that has spaces, it'll repeat whatever text comes next over and over until you kill the program. It'll also do that if you enter in an alphabetic letter when the program is expecting an integer. I'm going to look up how to make it not do that, but that's probably why.

You didn't add my name although I helped you sometime ago with some code. It had around 5 lines, but it doesn't matter. I hate you.






On the other hand, I don't want to be on the same list as Damaera.

Thanks... I know the program is actually straight up terrible, but it took me a surprisingly long time to create it and I actually did learn a few things from it. I think if I were to try and recreate it, it would take me 1/10th of the time. Right now I'm trying to make a tic tac toe game.

Also, completely irrelevant at this point, but I figured out why it was reporting the damage incorrectly/the enemy was dying too soon. Apparently every time you attack the enemy, you're attacking them once, and then attacking them again, and the game is only telling you about the damage done from the second attack. The player shouldn't be attacking the enemy twice, I ****ed up, but yeah, easy fix and that's that. I also messed up the participants counter that tells you how many people are left in the tournament at the top, but again, that would be easy/not even worht it to fix.

Also, Sky, from now on, every time I create a program, I'll name one of my functions Skyrider sucks, just for you.

I like how the weakest enemy in the game is Damaera.

ALL CHARACTERS AND
EVENTS IN THIS PROGRAM--
EVEN THOSE BASED ON REAL
PEOPLE--ARE ENTIRELY FICTIONAL.
ALL FORUM MEMBERS ARE MERELY
IMPERSONATED.....POORLY. THE
PROGRAM CONTAINS COARSE
LANGAUGE AND DUE TO ITS CONTENT
SHOULD NOT BE VIEWED BY ANYONE.
