Well not quite sure what the hell you wrote there

but I''ll stab at it:


first CEntity *bPlayerList[]; needs to be something like this:
CEntity *bPlayerList[MAX_PLAYERS];"

because if you think about it CEntity Array[]; is the same as saying CEntity* Array; What''s happening is you aren''t giving it a size for the array and your making a pointer to each pointer thus the CEntity ** error (** is a double pointer)

I assume the concept your going for is to make an array of players where each element in the array points to a player. Then Do this:

CEntity* bPlayerList[MAX_PLAYERS];

And everytime you add a player do this:

bPlayerList[NumberofPlayers] = new CEntity;

bPlayerList[NumberofPlayers]->SomeInfo();

SomeInfo() is just a made up function in the class CEntity (it could be anything.


Hope that helps.
