Hi disk. I think I got what you need...but I'm not sure. But this is a little sample program I made. You can run it on qb, i checked it to make sure it works.

draw a little arrow on the screen in the direction that the person gets hit.
It doesn't need to be an arrow, just some sort of indicator. Like in Gears of War, the red circle starts to appear when you are being hit, and it gets darker as you lose more and more health.

Well if you can do an excellent job of documenting the thing, then maybe GOTO and GOSUB would be ok. But in general it just makes it really hard to read or debug since you have to jump all over the place. Bigger program=Harder to read/debug Plus I heard that over using the command will result in wac...

Palindromes

Hey, you know what I find really annoying? When people use GOTO and GOSUB. I always try to stray from this, because of the speghetti code. But what's really annoying is when a beginner turtorial uses GOTO. If the turtorial uses it, then the person learning it will use it too. So I was bored, tired, ...
