I want to try some of the extension activities in battleship but every time i try and execute my code things pop up trying to move me on to the next lesson! Any way to just have a play without it?
you can always download Python to your computer. If you want to run code from codecademy on your computer you should download Python 2, not Python 3. Both are available at https://www.python.org/ . Read "Getting Started" in the about section for information on how to install it.
Cheers, I sort of knew that was an option but was enjoying the convenience of having everything available in-browser
