Simple C++/coding Question
« on: July 25, 2010, 02:05:10 PM »
This is for a disaster code for generating x and y values. It is on a 512x512 world map. The x and y values cannot fell into both of these ranges at the same time (a box):

501 - 512, 1 -28 for x
232- 256 for y

The code I have

Code: [Select]
int x = TethysGame::GetRand(512);
    int y;
    if (x < 28 || x > 501)
    {
        y = TethysGame::GetRand(232);
    }
    else
    {
        y = TethysGame::GetRand(256);
    }

I keep getting values within the box that is it not suppose to be in. (6,241) seems to be a common one. It is probably a stupid simple error I do not see but I am tired of looking at it. What is wrong?

Uhh, I'm not even sure what you're trying to do.  Do you want stuff to be in that box, or not in that box?  Regardless, there's probably a better way to do it.

Nevermind Sirbomber. The code is correct. It was another part of code that was making that meteor... It had been too long since I used the code, I forgot about it.
