Post subject:  Blackjack

well basicly i have a fairly good blackjack game going on right now but still got a few problems... cant post the code here becuase its for my isu but i will tell you what i can... basicly i have to make it so the dealer doesnt get more cards after he has 17... this is more complicating that it looks because a simple if dealer card>17 then hit type thing screws with the program. when you have this code added when it reaches the point with it, it resets the program

My blackjack was fully graphical and complette , but you should still be able to use

if dealerhand is >=17 then
dealerhit := false
dealerhit :=true
end if

you will need to hit systems one for hte osuer and one for the computer

it is a boolean variable..
basically it has two modes : true and false.. on or off.. 1 or 0... but here.. it's just true and false Razz

this is how i did it... work perfectly thank you so very much

if card6 + card7 + card8 >= 17 then
                        card9 := 0
                        randint (card9, 1, 10)
                        card9 := card9
                    end if

now I would say that you have a 4/14 chance of getting a 10... but seeing as you just started with turing, I dont think it matters.

if you want to get ahead in CS, I sujest learning arrays, we have two tutorials available 8)

I know my code is longer than it need because i am just using intergers not array but still im in a grade 10 turing basics class so he shouldn't care but i do want to learn the arrays... also it is due tomorrow so their is no time to change it.... i looked at the tutorials and i didnt understand them so can anyone please post a exaple program that does it for numbers... thanks
