i am trying to make a "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire" type game and am having problems with the scoring system.
e.g. i want to be able to step-up the through the winings, from £100 to £200 etc. the winings are shown by a cricle inside a panel alongside the prize(s).

if (edtnum->Text)) = (lblnum->Caption);
 {
  scorestate = onehund;
   if  (scorestate = onehund);
    {
     cric1->Visible=true;
    }
 }

this is how far ive got, by creating a enum state called 'scorestate' and setting 15 states to represent the prizes.

Put the scores into an array to iterate through them, e.g.

unsigned int scorepos = 0;
scorestate aScoreStates [] = { onehun, twohun, ... onemill};

scorestate score = aScoreStates [ scorepos];

if ( successful_answer = true) ++scorepos;

>>  if  (scorestate = onehund);
This line should be
  if  (scorestate == onehund);
to compare to values. The first assigns scorestate the value of onehund and this is not 0 so true.

The same holds for sample from jkr.

Hi Ikram_Bohra,
Probably the best way to express the game is as a state machine with states like
play100
...
play1M

and three transitions each:
win, lose, quit

You can easily attach visual "goodies" or random events to the game states.


Cheers,

Stefan

this is to jkr,

in reference to your recent answer, i'm not quite sure exactly what you mean (i'm a rookie).  Could you please explain in a little more detail!

thanking you in advance
