I got the rotation down pat, now I need some help on the collision detection.
The current piece is stored as a 1..4*4 array of int .
A '1' says that this place is taken up by a block and a 0 says its free.
The board itself is also one huge one dimensional array 1..12*39 of int
Note these aren't 2 dimensional arrays I want to keep them 1 dimensial.

Ouch. 2-Dim is the way to go. Ignoring that, you are obviously trying to compare your piece vs the board to find collisions. I assume that you are already restricting the piece so that it can't go off the edges. The check will look something like:
code:
var pieceAt := where bottom left corner is in the board array
var hit:=false
for h : 0 .. 3
    for w : 1 .. 4
        if piece(h*4 + w) + board(h*12 + w + pieceAt) = 2 then
            hit :=true
        end if
    end for
end for

if I were to change the 1 and 0's to boolean true and false, in order to compare the two I would have to use the boolean operators right?

ex:
OR XOR AND ?

as oppose to not using and/or ? Confused

what do you mean?

ohh... I think i get what you mean by boolean operators... and you could use them... you can also use if = comparison.

ya thats what I was planning to do with them. using in if statement,
but still having trouble

ya, you would use AND because you only care about the case where the collision occurs.

here is my program so far, bugs are evident, but I just want to get some opinions and whether it is worth programming for the People.

edit: has someone else previously made a tetris game like mine?

Ctrl and ALT are to rotate and 'j' and 'l' to move left and right

hm, a couple of bugs, the next piece appears in the x coordinate of where the last peice fell. When you turn it near the edge, it goes all wacky. The piece rotates funny (or does it?) oh, and I can turn it when there isn't space.

i've got the first few problems fixed, but the detection of whether the piece has enough room to rotate or not is going to be hard.

Note: if I can get the bugs fixed, should there be a cooperative mode, or vs or both?
