Okay, i'll make this as organized as I can, since it's really hard to explain!
Maybe it's two problems. Here goes. First, I need a way to store the coordinates of a specific character. Do I do this with a variable? Here's the tricky part of it. The variable name has to be 'variable' + number. The number being if it's the first one plotted, second character plotted or third...etc... So if i plotted a character and it was the fifth one, it's coordinates would be stored in 'variable5'
I need it so that i can make a 'path' between randomly placed text characters, and to do that i need to be able to store their coordinates.
Possibly an array? If that's what i use, please be EXTREMELY simple when you try to explain how to do it, I get scared enough when I hear the word array...
So, I geuss I need a way to create a variable midstream, that has the standard name 'variable' plus a number appended onto it.
I'm afraid an array is what I need, and in that case, please be as simple as you can, I understand NOTHING about arrays. As always, source code is always nice (:
PPS: If 100 pts. isn't enough, sorry, it's all i got (actually 105, geuss i'm lying) (:
