i'd thought i'd solved the problem with my array yesterday, but it turned out i was very, very wrong — aargh this thing is driving me batty. i've been through example after example in several different kinds of BASIC, i've been fiddling with my code for days now, and i've just hit a wall. I know there's an answer, it's just that there's nothing out there that's helping with this specific problem.

this all works fine (minus any weird typos from me typing it into the reply box lol):

CLS
CLEAR

DIM A$(5,4)
FOR B=0 TO 4
FOR C=0 TO 3
READ A$(B,C)
NEXT C
NEXT B

DATA 5,1,2,5
DATA 0,5,4,5
DATA 5,3,5,0
DATA 2,4,5,5
DATA 3,5,5,1

RO=3
PRINT "You are in"
PRINT "Room No. ";RO
@EXITS
IF A$(RO,0)!="5" THEN PRINT "A door leads north.":WAIT 60
IF A$(RO,1)!="5" THEN PRINT "There is an exit to the south.":WAIT 60
IF A$(RO,2)!="5" THEN PRINT "You can leave via the east exit." :WAIT 60
IF A$(RO,3)!="5" THEN PRINT "A doorway leads westward.":WAIT 60

@WHICHWAY
WAIT 60
PRINT "Which direction?":WAIT 60
INPUT "N,S,E,W";D$
IF A$(RO,0)=="5" AND D$=="N" THEN PRINT "You can't go that way!"
IF A$(RO,1)=="5" AND D$=="S" THEN PRINT "You can't walk through walls!"
IF A$(RO,2)=="5" AND D$=="E" THEN PRINT "There's no door there!"
IF A$(RO,3)=="5" AND D$=="W" THEN PRINT "There is no door to the west!"

what I'm having problems with is actual movement throughout this space i've set up. I'm trying to get it to update variable RO (the room i'm currently in) to equal a value from the array I've set up. i've tried just about every variation of the following that I could think of and fiddle around with over the past couple days:

IF D$=="N" THEN RO=A(RO,0)
IF D$=="S" THEN RO=A(RO,1)
IF D$=="E" THEN RO=A(RO,2)
IF D$=="W" THEN RO=A(RO,3)
GOTO @EXITS

and every time i get it working (e.g. not giving me an error due to syntax or subscript out of range), the program will start in the proper room, but as soon as I try to move it puts me into Room 0. It prints the correct responses upon entry of both rooms re: which directions are possible for movement, and it gives the right responses if I try to move in a direction with a value of 5, but I can't switch rooms.

I did manage to get this working by coding it the long way:

IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="0" THEN RO=0
IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="1" THEN RO=1
IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="2" THEN RO=2
IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="3" THEN RO=3
IF D$=="N" AND A$(RO,0)=="4" THEN RO=4

IF D$=="S" AND A$(RO,1)="0" THEN RO=0
...

... etc. and so forth, you get the idea. doing it the long way works, but i know there's got to be an easier way of having the array update the room number variable. :(

your wii itself is scratching discs? it may have something up inside the drive itself (idk if you have little cousins, brothers and sisters, or kids of your own who like to jam things inside electronics, haha) or something inside the drive may be broken and touching the surface of the disc as it spins in the drive. if you're comfortable with it, you could open the Wii yourself and see if there's anything in the drive (there are videos on YouTube that can walk you through the process of opening up your Wii), but if you're not comfortable you could go ahead and have it repaired again.

@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

Would it still look the same (i.e. protrude) or could it just be a pair of nostrils flush with your skin?

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 :/
