This forum is not the right place to ask newbie programming questions, so you need another forum where you can ask for help when your code does not work. Usenet is the best place that I can think of. http://groups.google.com/group/alt.comp ... c++/topics
IRC is one option.
BZFlag lives on irc.freenode.net - dev chat is at #bzflag and general chat at #bzchat. But until you get to a stage where you're capable of working with bzflag code, try #C++ .

I can't find it! The search button gives me random stuff.


I can make code to add, subtract, multiply, or divide, but it's in blitz basic. (another hard-code program).

I doubt I could get a book for it anytime soon, so I think it'll be a while.

In BB, making it say something is

Print "Whatever you want to type"

And waiting for a button is

If KeyHit (A)
Then
Print "jkfnwiufesugneriugwerubger"

Okay, you get a Bic, the orc gets a long sword.

He cuts the Bic in half.

Then he cuts you in half.

Oops, I meant quarters.

Guess what comes up when you search the wiki for "BZFlag Source"...
http://my.bzflag.org/w/BZFlag_Source
And look what that page says here:
The developers keep the current code for the project in a SVN repository located at SourceForge. Please see the BZFlag SVN page for information on how to access the SVN system.
And Guess where the BZFlag SVN page is!

In regards to "blitz basic", C++ is a whole different language, but chances are, the logic'll be similar.
To print something in C++, you'll want to do:

Code: Select all

std::cout << "something";
.

Are you just attempting to provoke everyone?

You said you couldn't find it and that random stuff came up, so he was answering your question. The smart ass attitude is a CBG trademark, not necessarily a provocation.

I'd like to note that Dev-C++ isn't the best compiler to use for BZFlag, the devs usually don't keep the project files for it up-to-date.

That being said, considering you have a while to go before needing to compile BZFlag, you can still use it and switch to something else eventually.
