Hey guys, I'm not entirely sure what the problem is here, but there seems to be a segmentation fault in my space invaders code. I've used the debugger to single it down to a nested loop in my code, can someone please point out what the problem is please? main.cpp
for(int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
{
{
for(int j = 0; j < MAXENEMIES; i++)
{
if(enemylol[j].checkHit(tehShip.tehShots.position))
{
}
}
}
}


the checkHit function is as follows:
bool cEnemy::checkHit(SDL_Rect shotPos)
{
if(shotPos.x >= position.x && shotPos.x<= position.x + position.w )
{
if(position.y == shotPos.y)
{
return true;
}
if(position.y + position.h == shotPos.y)
{
return true;
}
}
return false;
}


the program segfaults on "enemylol[j].dead = true" for some reason. If anyone has any ideas then let me know! cheers Heh

The error on that line doesn't make sense or the checkHit method should also have segfaulted. Try a clean build. Sometimes compilers and linkers get confused when there are lots of incremental changes, perhaps the debugger is reporting the wrong line number?

ahhh ok don't worry, I was being stupid =(

I had this: for(int j = 0; j < MAXENEMIES; i++)
I needed this: for(int j = 0; j < MAXENEMIES; j++)

Cheers for the help though =)

heh.
