PostPosted: Fri Mar 19, 2004 11:11 am   Post subject: Taking Turns in A Dice Game Question

I'm doing my dice game right now but I don't know a good way to alternate between characters in the game. Since, the number of char changes every single time in the game, I'm really confused about what I can do so that the players would take turns rolling the die. I did think about using arrays but I'm still not sure what to do. Please help me. ^^ [/code]

Use a counter, after someone goes, the counter goes up by one like
loop
rolldice
c+=1
end loop

then, in the loop, have it mod the counter by the number of people.
eg. num ppl = 4
if c mod ppl =0 then
put "Player 1's turn."
elsif c mod ppl =1 then
put "player 2's turn"
elsisf c mod ppl = 2 then
put "Player 3's turn"
elsif c mod ppl = 3 then
put "player 4's turn."
end if


and so on, that should work. Wink

So, if the number of characters differ each time it's played, do I just make a counted loop?

I did that. But there's something wrong. Sad Here's the code.

code:
var roll, count, numplayers : int
count := 0

put "Number of players: " ..
get numplayers

loop
delay (200)
    count += 1
    for i : 1 .. numplayers
        if count mod numplayers = 0 then
            put "Player 1's turn"
        elsif count mod numplayers = 1 then
            put "Player 2's turn"
        elsif count mod numplayers = 2 then
            put "Player 3's turn"
        elsif count mod numplayers = 3 then
            put "Player 4's turn"
        end if
    end for
end loop

The way you set up your code, each player goes 4 times? I dunno, if your doing this for your flight game, each player rolls once each turn right? There can only be 4 players, so you should limit it.

Heres a simple example showing however number of players within 4, taking turns rolling the die
code:

var players, roll: int
loop
put "Enter number of players 1-4"
get players
if players >0 and players <=4 then
cls
exit
end if
cls
end loop
loop
for a: 1..players
randint (roll, 1,6)
if a=1 then
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ", roll
elsif a=2 then
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ",roll
elsif a=3 then
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ", roll
elsif a=4 then
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ", roll
end if
delay (1000)
end for
cls
end loop

Yeah, well Paul's is simpler ;D oh well, thats how i did mine for tic tac toe, i had it mod 2, if its 0, then its player 1 turn, if its 1 then player 2 turn ;D

code:

for a: 1..players
randint (roll, 1,6)
if a=1 then
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ", roll
elsif a=2 then
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ",roll
elsif a=3 then
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ", roll
elsif a=4 then
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ", roll
end if


just nitpicking, but this if structure isnt required is it?
Couldnt this be replaced with

code:

for a: 1..players
randint (roll, 1,6)
put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ", roll
end if

It could be but then there's a lot of other things I have to check for:

(1) If the player rolls a 6, then it can move either a pawn in the waitng area or move a pawn that's already out(since there's a limit. The maximum number of pawns you can have is 4.) Once you have all four out, you can choose which pawn you want to move. If the player doesn't get a six, then it can't move and it goes on to the next player <-- that means that I have to have a loop and then make a lot of if statements right?
(2) There are 4 different colours that can be chosen : red, blue, green, or yellow. When the game starts, each player chooses a colour. Then it goes into the actual game where you start rolling the die.
(3) There are different colours on the board. If the player lands on the colour that they chose, they can skip to the next colour square that they chose.
and some other things I have to check for.

So I think the if statement structure is perfect. But... I'm stuck on the first part where I have to check for stuff. I have part of it in code but there's some error in it, and I don't know how to fix it. ^^

code:
var players, roll, move1, move2, move3, move4, pawn, numpawns : int
var player1, player2, player3, player4 : boolean := false
move1 := 0
move2 := 0
move3 := 0
move4 := 0

loop
    put "Enter number of players 1-4"
    get players
    put "Enter number of pawns 1-4"
    get numpawns
    if players >= 2 and players <= 4 and numpawns > 0 and numpawns <= 4 then
        cls
        exit
    end if
    cls
end loop

loop
    for a : 1 .. players
        randint (roll, 1, 6)
        if a = 1 then
            put "Player ", a, " Rolled a ", roll
            if roll = 6 then
                player1 := true
                put "Which Pawn do you want to move?"
                get pawn
                put "Pawn", pawn, "moved into 'Start Flying' mode"
                exit
            end if
            if roll <= 5 and player1 = true then
                put "Which Pawn do you want to move?"
                get pawn
                assert pawn > 0
                if pawn = 1 then
                    move1 := move1 + roll
                    put "Pawn ", pawn, " moved", move1
                elsif pawn = 2 then
                    move2 := move2 + roll

well, your asking for 1-4 players correct?

but in your code, you only allow 2-4 players....i dont even understand wahts going on in the game
Paul

that would be simpler, but I was going for the one thats ez to understand yes?

I forgot to mention that the game has to have at least 2 people playing. ^^ That's why I put 2-4 people in the code.

Yea, I kinda figured that after, but hey, I use to play this by myself when I was sick back then Very Happy

I can't seem to figure out how I can fix the error though..... I mean, I changed the number of characters but then it keeps on repeating the same player over and over again. I don't know how I can fix it. Sad

I've improved on the form of this signifigantly I think, and as you can see the number on lines is a lot less this way. It's just more convenient.
By the way, You are trying to make the game Parchesi, are you not?
code:

var players, roll, move1, move2, move3, move4, pawn, numpawns, playernum : int
var player : array 1 .. 4 of boolean
move1 := 0
move2 := 0
move3 := 0
move4 := 0
for a : 1 .. 4
    player (a) := false
end for
proc movedecisions
    put "Player ", playernum, " Rolled a ", roll
    if roll = 6 then
        player (playernum) := true
        put "Which Pawn do you want to move?"
        get pawn
        put "Pawn", pawn, "moved into 'Start Flying' mode"
    end if
    if roll <= 5 and player (playernum) = true then
        put "Which Pawn do you want to move?"
        get pawn
        assert pawn > 0
        if pawn = 1 then
            move1 := move1 + roll
            put "Pawn ", pawn, " moved", move1
        elsif pawn = 2 then
            move2 := move2 + roll
            put "Pawn ", pawn, " moved", move2
        elsif pawn = 3 then
            move3 := move3 + roll
            put "Pawn ", pawn, " moved", move3
        elsif pawn = 4 then
            move4 := move4 + roll
            put "Pawn ", pawn, " moved", move4
        end if
    end if
end movedecisions

loop
    put "Enter number of players 1-4"
    get players
    put "Enter number of pawns 1-4"
    get numpawns
    if players >= 2 and players <= 4 and numpawns > 0 and numpawns <= 4 then
        cls
        exit
    end if
    cls
end loop

loop
    for a : 1 .. players
        randint (roll, 1, 6)
        playernum := a
        movedecisions
        delay (1000)
        cls
    end for
end loop
