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.

@6ch6ris6: in the program, on the main screen there's an option for 'File Management'. Tap that option and you'll see an option to 'Read QR Codes"... most programs will have more than one QR code, and the program will walk you through scanning them all, then save the program on your system. it seems to save to the system automatically, because there's also an option 'Save to SD Memory Card' that allows you to copy your programs to the SD card.

edit: or what iphys just said, haha :3

edit the second: arrays are effin' killing me; i've been beating my head against a 'duplicate definition' error for quite a while now with no progress made whatsoever. it's the only DIM in the entire program, and the variable being used isn't used again except when referring to the array; ffs idk wtf i'm doing wrong. i'd kill for some sort of SmileBASIC tutorial that went over everything, because just looking at other peoples' code isn't really cutting it anymore.

hey, anyone (like me) who's interested in creating a text-based adventure game or something, check this out: Creating Adventure Games on Your Computer, by Tim Hartnell. It's a really great book in terms of walking you through the planning and stuff that goes into this kind of thing — i'm not all the way through it yet but it seems like a truly solid reference for this sort of project.

it depends on what kind of game it is... if it's a F2P MMO of some sort, i'm not a fan mainly because usually the good items are available immediately to whoever has the funds, e.g. you're not working for what you have. When I play a game and i'm up against someone who's better than me, I want the reason for that to be because the other guy worked harder and put in more time, not because he had more money in his bank account and was able to purchase a +50 Mallet of Hammering and +75 Shield of Awesome immediately upon signup. F2P MMOs tend to balance in favor of people who are able to spend more money on them — otherwise you're left grinding forever to pick up super rare drops, and at that point you're also fighting against god-knows-how-many other people to get those same drops. there's a point where it stops being fun, y'know?

F2P solo experiences I don't really mind as much, and some of them can be pretty neat. however, the game you're describing in the OP probably wouldn't interest me. idk off top of my head what would interest me, but i'm just not feeling a F2P Mario platforming title atm, lol.

@theblackdragon, why would you want to see the pre-installed source codes? Were you going to try and manipulate the codes, or were you just going to try and mirror them in your own fashion?

I was attempting to figure out how to ask for user input and have it respond (ask a question? [y/n], user inputs y and gets answer A, user inputs n and gets answer B, user inputs else and gets something dumb) but after quite a bit of trial and error, i still didn't understand what i was doing wrong. i wanted to see how it was done in a different program, perhaps, but i couldn't figure out how to see their code because i was viewing them through Gallery Mode — in order to see their code you need to go in like you're creating a new program and then manually load them from there. :3
