I am currently using an if statement for my pacman's mouth. The variable is mthCls. mthCls increases by 10 each time through the loop, I need it so that once mthCls equals 30 that it will go down to 0 and when it reaches 0 it will go back up again. Could you please help, my assignment is due soon...

u mean something like this:
code:

loop
    for i : 1 .. 10
        drawfilloval (320, 200, 100, i * 10, 12)
        delay (50)
        cls
    end for
    for decreasing i : 10 .. 1
        drawfilloval (320, 200, 100, i * 10, 12)
        delay (50)
        cls
    end for

end loop

no i mean something like:

mthCls:=0 --> mthCls:= 10 --> mthCls:=20 --> mthCls:=30 --> mthCls:=20 --> mthCls:=10 --> mthCls:=0 --> mthCls:=10 --> and repeats basically...

if you can put that into an if statement i would really appreciate it...

well do what homer did with for loops. If you want it to look old-school like it used to be, you can add by 10, so that your forloops would increase/decrease by 10 instead.

The only problem with the For loop is that if you want to move Pacman around you're out of luck (doesn't sound like he needs to.) I keeping with your original idea, I would use a second variable that will keep track of how much to add on to your mthCls variable each time around the loop.
Kinda like:
code:

var mthChange:=10
loop
     mthCls += mthChange      %mthCls := mthCls + mthChange
     if mthCls = 30 or mthCls = 0 then
          mthChange *= -1
     end if
end loop

you have to use View.Update for animation not to flash. There's a tutorial on use of it available.

are you using 4.0.x? you need the newest version of turing all patched to be able to use View.Update.

another thing, try not to use process and fork, they are really really bad, almost as bad as whatdotcolor.

Or of course, you could do it 8th grader style!
[This DOES NOT in any way reflect my intelligence....seriously]

code:

var pacman_x, pacman_y : int := 200
var mouth_draw_stage : int := 0
var mouth_move : string := "open"
loop
    if mouth_draw_stage < 3 and mouth_move = "open" then
        Draw.FillBox (0, 0, maxx, maxy, 255)
        Draw.FillOval (pacman_x, pacman_y, 8, 8, 14)
        delay (300)
        Draw.Line (pacman_x, pacman_y, pacman_x - 2, pacman_y + 8, 255)
        Draw.Line (pacman_x, pacman_y, pacman_x + 2, pacman_y + 8, 255)
        Draw.Fill (pacman_x, pacman_y + 7, 255, 255)
        delay (300)
        Draw.Line (pacman_x, pacman_y, pacman_x - 6, pacman_y + 8, 255)

AZN is right. Too much forkn' around is going to be the source of endless headaches. The biggest problem is that the movement between Pac and the ghosts is not synchronized. What you need to do is simulate the simultanious movement yourself. Your mainline should look something like:
code:
%pseudo code
loop
     movePacMan                % one increment
     moveAllGhosts              % each ghost moves one increment
     checkInteractions          % someone gets eaten?
     View.Update
     exit when allDone
end loop

Because you move each character a small increment before you update the scene, they are, in effect, moving simultaneously
