Re: Need help to understand some code, random number within a range of.

My idea was having say a list of descriptors, such as gold, copper, silver, iron etc. Then at the start of the game, it would run through and change them all at random on the objects. For ACT, I'd have to make sure my word list, is numbered the same as my description message range, then it would be ...

Re: Need help to understand some code, random number within a range of.

Many thanks! I think I kind of get it, In the second example above, how does 10932, equate to a range of 5 numbers? 10932: Not at all. You want a number between 13 and 17. That is a range of 5. Thus, divide the complete range of random numbers RANDOM gives you by 5 to get the proper divisor: 65535/...

Need help to understand some code, random number within a range of.

Now first up, this is more of a maths question, rather than a how do I code this. This is in ACT adventure code (no groaning at the back!!) In various places the original programmer, can get a range of set random numbers using divide, but I don't know how the division number applies to the amount of...

Yes, the microdrives are just a curiosity now :) Has the keyboard membrane been changed? Or does it work ok?
