Obstacles

I keep forgetting to blog after working on the program so I’m goign to sum up the main obstacles I have faced so far. Initially i couldn’t get the combo box i was using i my program to work and since i am doing a text adventure the input of your choice is quite an important bit so it was vital i got it working but for some reason it just would not work so i switched to a text box which did work but as you can imagine that meant that you could enter anything and if you did not enter the correct option the program would crash so i decided to try and make the combo box work again and it soddenly came to me how to get it working and then it started working. the next big problem was that i could not get the moving on from each stage based on the option you choose working since for some reason it wouldn’t use the variables correctly so i created3 universal variables that each option would be set two in each stage and that worked since that would mean after each section the variables would be correct and move on in the game and not just keep doing the same stage over and over again, i then used a case statement that would take you to the next stage depending on what choice you made. so i then had a working selection system and a working method of moving through the game. i will talk about the other obstacles I’ve come across so far and what other developments i have made so far tomorrow as this post would be very long other wise, so i’m splitting it into two
