Problem in my Battleship code


Hello, i have a problem in my code beceause it nevers lets me chose 2values in raw input only 1 then my code goes on… Could somebody help?

from random import randint

board = []

for x in range(0, 5):
  board.append(["O"] * 5)

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


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)
print ship_row
print ship_col

# Everything from here on should be in your for loop
# don't forget to properly indent!
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 sank my battleship!"
    if guess_row not in range(5) or \
        guess_col not in range(5):
        print "Oops, that's not even in the ocean."
    elif board[guess_row][guess_col] == "X":
        print( "You guessed that one already." )
        print "You missed my battleship!"
        board[guess_row][guess_col] = "X"
    if turn == 3:
        print "Game Over"

Thanks in advance!


It should let you pick 2 values? I ran your code here:

and it ran fine


For some reason on the codecademy site it desn’t run as fine. I tested ur link and it does work fine indeed. But for some reason when i try to run it on the codecademy site i won’t let me pick my 2 values.

Very weird :confused:


That is weird indeed, maybe refresh the lesson page? Anyway, as long as you understand what you are doing, it should be fine :slight_smile:


Reshing the lesson page did do it in the end! Thank you haha i din’t think i’d be that easy :slight_smile:
I think i understood all of it so it should be fine indeed.

Thanks alot for the fast replies !
