15/19 Play it, Sam - Got it working but


#1

So I got this code working just fine, displays each turn, but what I figure out is now it shows where the ship is going to be. So it shows the ocean (board) and then has 2 numbers, then it has the guess...Why is it displaying where the ship is going to be? here is my code:

for turn in range(4):
    print "Turn", turn + 1
    guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
    guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
else:
    if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
    elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
        print "You guessed that one already."
    else:
        print "You missed my battleship!"
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
        turn = turn + 1
        print turn
    # Print (turn + 1) here!
    print_board(board)

and here is what it showing me when I run the code: Console output

any assistance on this would be greatly appreciated...

Are you printing the ship_row and ship_col anywhere above your loop?


#3

Thank you for that, apparently was printed right above this code.. Not sure why.

Again, thank you.

So I ran into another issue when testing the final code. For starters when I enter in the correct coordinates its like the game flips the coordinates. So in this example the win is at 4,1 and I made the guess 4, 1 but its' like the game is recognizing the coordinates flipped, like 1,4... Help?

from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(5):
    board.append(["O"] * 5)

def print_board(board):
    for row in board:
        print " ".join(row)

print "Let's play Battleship!"
print_board(board)

def random_row(board):
    return randint(0, len(board) - 1)

def random_col(board):
    return randint(0, len(board[0]) - 1)

ship_row = random_row(board)
ship_col = random_col(board)
# Everything from here on should go in your for loop!
# Be sure to indent four spaces!
for turn in range(4):
    print "Turn", turn + 1
    guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
    guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

    if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
        print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
        break
else:
    if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
    elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
        print "You guessed that one already."
    else:
        print "You missed my battleship!"
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
        turn = turn + 1
        print turn
        if turn == 4:
            print "Game Over"
    # Print (turn + 1) here!
    print_board(board)

Any assistance is greatly appreciated... this is the screenshot of the "failed guess" - Screenshot

print ship_row
print ship_col

Everything from here on should go in your for loop!

Be sure to indent four spaces!

for turn in range(4):
print "Turn", turn + 1
guess_row = int(raw_input("Guess Row:"))
guess_col = int(raw_input("Guess Col:"))

if guess_row == ship_row and guess_col == ship_col:
    print "Congratulations! You sunk my battleship!"
else:
    if (guess_row < 0 or guess_row > 4) or (guess_col < 0 or guess_col > 4):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
    elif(board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X"):
        print "You guessed that one already."
    else:
        print "You missed my battleship!"

I was using this statement, which I consider correct, but it was still not passing the test:

for t in range(4):

# print "Turn " + str(t + 1)

Instead, I had to re-write it as
# print "Turn", t + 1

Here's my code...hope it help you...
