Unity New Problem

Recommended Posts

Hello again people, I have a new problem with my program. I've tried over and over to figure out what is going wrong but I can't figure it out so I need some help. So here is the issue I've implemented a character editor into my text based game I am working on an I then am sending my data to the file saving system in the program but it's not saving any of the data that was inputted. Here is part of my code. character_editor.h
void Game::start_new_game()
{
	int sex;
	int race;
	Character p;//pointer to our Character Class
    Game      v;//pointer to our Game Class

	cout << "Character Editor\n";
	
	cout << "Please give your player a name!\n";
	cin >> p.player_name;
	cout << "1) Male or 2) Female?\n";
	cin >> sex;

	if(sex == 1)
	{
		p.sex = "Male";
		cout << "You are now a:" << p.sex <<"\n";
	}
	if(sex == 2)
	{
		p.sex = "Female";
		cout << "You are now a:" << p.sex <<"\n";
	}
	
	cout << "Please pick a race!\n";
	cout << "4) Human, 5) Goblin\n";
	cin >> race;

	if(race == 4)
	{
		p.race = "Human";
		p.str  = 12;
		p.health = 10;
		cout << "You are a" << p.race << "with" << p.health << "health points, and" << p.str << "strength\n";

	}
	if(race == 5)
	{
		p.race = "Goblin";
		p.str  = 10;
		p.health = 12;
		cout << "You are a" << p.race << "with" << p.health << "health points, and" << p.str << "strength\n";
     }
	v.new_game();
}
save.cpp
Character x;
void Game::new_game()
{
	ofstream account;
	account.open("account.txt");
	if(account.is_open())
	{
		account << "Player name:" << "" << x.player_name << "\n";
		account << "Sex:"         << "" << x.sex         << "\n";
		account << "Race:"        << "" << x.race        << "\n";
		account << "Health:"      << "" << x.health      << "\n";     
		account << "Strength:"    << "" << x.str         << "\n";
		account.close();
	}
}

it just doesn't save the data that was inputted maybe I am making a obvious mistake maybe I am not but I can't figure it out so I need some help. Thank you once again to this community for all the help and support I've received.

I'm more than a little confused. :/

The start_new_game looks like a member function of a class named Game. In it, you have another instance of Game (not a pointer by the way) that calls its own new_game method? There's also a local Character instance where you do all this 'stuff' with, which is destroyed the moment you leave the function scope. it doesn't seem to affect the Character instance called x, the one you are trying to save? In fact, I not entirely sure what scope x resides in at all?

    • By STRATUM the Game
      Hey, everyone! This is my first post here.
      I would like to know what you think about my project called STRATUM. It's a 2D platformer that is heavily based on storytelling and boss fighting while trekking through the world.

      Everything in STRATUM takes place in the first century AD, in a world that wraps our own universe, called  The Stratum. A parallel Universe that is the home of the Christian deities . In this game you will play as a Dacian warrior, unfamiliar with everything in this world, you’ll get to know and understand The Stratum together with him.
      The main thing that I want with STRATUM is to reinvent the known lore and history of the Christian deities and realms. 
      The story is unconventional, it plays down a lot of the mysticism of Hell or Heaven and it gives it a more rational view while keeping the fantastic in it. What do I mean by that? Well, think about Hell. What do you know about it? It's a bad place where bad people go, right? Well, that's not the case in STRATUM. I don't want to describe such a world. In STRATUM, there is a reason for everything, especially for the way Hell is what it is in the game. "Hell" is called The Black Stratum in the game.
      This world is not very different from Earth, but it is governed by different natural laws.
      The story will also involve the reason why this world entered in touch with ours.

       
      What do you think about all that I said? Would you be interested in such a game? I have to say that everything is just a work of fiction made with my imagination. I do not want to offend anyone's beliefs.
      I want this to be a one man game. I have been working alone on it (this was my decision from the beginning) from art to effects to programming to music to sound effects to everything.
      I also have a youtube video HERE if you want to see the way the game moves and the way my music sounds.
      Please, any kind of feedback will be highly appreciated. If you have something bad to say, do it, don't keep it for yourself only. I want to hear anything that you don't like about my project.

      Hi, it's my first post on this forum and I would like to share the game I am working on at the moment.
      Graphics have been made with Blender3D using Cycle as a renderer and I am using Unity3D. It's a 2D game, one touch side-scrolling game for iOS and Android.
      Here some pictures, and you can have a look to the gameplay on this video :
      Feedbacks ?
      And if you want to try it, send me your email and I will add you to the beta tester list!
