I am making an rock paper scissors game (my firsy program on my own)
I get an error that says "missing function parameter 'x'."
The code is:


If you find any other errors please include them.
Thanks in advance.

YOu have a number of If statements e.g:


Should it not be y=y+1 (and x=x+1 in some of the others)?

I haven't done any programming for years, so I dunno if I'm completely wrong, but that is the first thing that comes to me.

I will try it out, but I have to go to dinner first. I think you are right though. thanks

I managed to do it before dinner, I still get the error however I fixed those. i now highlighted the problem line. Thanks for mentioning that though.

Yeah, that seems to be the problem, you've done it a few times, too, with x+1's and y+1's.

X=X+1 is equivalent to "Make X be X + 1"

Whereas X+1 is just a number!

Ah, sorry.. Highlighting doesn't work in code boxes (so you can show off bbcode inside code boxes!!) my fault!

.. Um, the issue then is that there's no comma after the text, so it's finding a random number where there should be a ", X, Y" if that makes sense.

When starting out a good habit you might want to consider getting into is indenting your code. It typically makes your code easier to read and follow.

For example here is your code from above indented and with a few extra line breaks.

In addition to all other errors that anyone else has found, I have noticed you are not calling your DrawText function properly. You've been forgetting to put a comma after the quotes and you need to comment-out anything that's not a command.

DrawText "1 for rock, 2 for paper, and 3 for scissors"0,0 'This one^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

should be:

DrawText "1 for rock, 2 for paper, and 3 for scissors", 0,0 ;This one^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

And

'_________________done______________________________

should be

;_________________done______________________________
