I've gone ahead and modified your original topic about people receiving their 3DSes to encompass everyone instead of just your friend, that way we can have one big thread for users to show off their new hotness. Please feel free to update it with your experience (provided it abides by the Community Rules). Thank you :3

@RoryLee: The former was obvious copypasta for fun, and the latter was blatant trolling of our entire Monster Hunter loving userbase further emphasized by the behavior of the OP tonight (you may not have seen it happen, but the name of that thread changed a few times over the course of the night, and the OP was given fair warning before their eventual ban). If you'd like to discuss it further, my door is open.

that black plug is your s-video one — if you've got a port for that on your VCR or TV you'd be better off using it for your video than the yellow plug. it doesn't carry audio, though, so you'll still need to use the red and white hookups for that.

you can hook up your SNES to your VCR if you like. you'll just have to make sure your VCR is turned on and tuned into its aux or input channel every time you want to play it. don't ask me about lag, though — idk about that since i don't have an HDTV. :3

indeed, i'd kinda like to know this as well. the reason i prefer my nose where it is right now is mainly because i'm not about to go bashing my face into things and snapping it off on accident :(

edit: bah, screw that, then — i'd rather it be gone entirely if i couldn't have it right where it is :/

First, arrays always start counting at zero. When you use the DIM statement, you specify how big the array is (SIZE), but when you try to get or set values be sure to use (SIZE-1).

oh geez, i think i had it backwards — i knew arrays in SmileBASIC start with 0 but i thought the numbers in the DIM line had to be what started from 0 (which is why i stated 8 for a total number of 9 rooms) and then the set values could start from 1 if i wanted to. i'm a dork D:

also, when i input the correct numbers

DIM A(9,4)
FOR B=0 TO 8
FOR C=0 TO 3
READ A(B,C)
NEXT C
NEXT B

it still didn't work — gave me a 'type mismatch' error (btw, i'm using the exact error terminology it's throwing at me, which is why i kept saying it was a 'syntax error' before, and originally the 'duplicate definition' error :3). however, i noticed you keep using that $ symbol, so when i tried inputting

DIM A$(9,4)
FOR B=0 TO 8
FOR C=0 TO 3
READ A$(B,C)
NEXT C
NEXT B

it finally started kicking me to the next problem with the program, so it looks like a combination of fixing the array size and sticking that $ in there took care of it. why does that work? i have no idea D:

anyway, i'll play around with it a bit more once i get into work, lol. thanks for all your help, i really appreciate it :3

@ejamer: thanks, man, that did it — i had a CLS beforehand instead of a CLEAR. that would explain why it'd throw me a different error first and then keep giving me duplicate definition ones afterward, haha D: also, it's kinda the 'startup initialization' of the program, so it's only coded to run once per use in the program; you'd have to restart the entire thing in order to hit that CLEAR again.

now it's giving me syntax errors with the READ command. what i'm trying to do is construct a 9-room test environment, each room with four possible directions in which to go. this is what i've got so far:

CLEAR
DIM A(8,3)
FOR B=1 TO 9
FOR C=1 TO 4
READ A(B,C)
NEXT C
NEXT B

... and then my DATA afterward. it consistently gives me a syntax error at the READ line, though, and I realize there's no use of parentheses shown in the manual, but i've checked some of the other included code, and it seems to do this kind of thing there with no problem (GAME2).

i'd assume it's because i don't have any other parameters set at the moment, but yesterday i transcripted the full program from the aforementioned page (had to in order to get rid of all the line-numbers), QR'd it and got it into my 3DS, fiddled with it for a while, and then crapped out at the same place — syntax error on the READ line. if the problem were with the DATA or another line, it'd give me an error for those and not the READ line, wouldn't it? my ultimate goal at this point in time is to get that adventure-game program from the site i found yesterday up and running, but SmileBASIC is pretty different from what he's used (plus there seem to have been several spelling/syntax errors included on accident in the process of getting it up on the internet!). i'm kinda learning by translation at this point, but i keep getting stuck.
