QBASIC grid help

by rob (no login)


Imagine a 2D grid with sequentially numbered cells. Each cell contains a random dollar amount in the range $10 to +$10. The player, who cannot see the amounts in the cells, is allowed 10 guesses. As the guesses are made, the dollar amount for the cells chosen are displayed and accumulated and the current performance displayed. After the 10 guesses have all been made, the player is informed of the results and permitted to play again if he/she desires.

Write a BASIC program to play this game. Your program should get the grid dimensions from the user, randomly create the dollar amounts for each cell, display the grid with sequentially numbered cells, then allow the user to guess. Update the display (in place) to show the progress of the game. Do not permit a user to select a cell more than once per game.

You will need to use a two-dimensional array to contain the locations of the money. The LOCATE statement is essential for proper display of the treasure hunters progress.

its due tommorow and i can set up my array and a few little other things but for the most part i dont have a clue


DIM array(10, 10) AS INTEGER, picked(10, 10) AS INTEGER
FOR i = 1 TO 10
FOR j = 1 TO 10
array(i, j) = INT(RND(1)*21)-10

* You could use RANDOMIZE TIMER for better RND.Clippy on Apr 29
 *Didn't notice that. Yes, use RANDOMIZE TIMER, else you'll get the same results each time.Pharoah on Apr 29
