OK so i need to do a loop that if you get answer wrong four times you will be blocked for 3 minutes and when you are correct you get that text plus your CD-ROM drive will open. I dont want to make this program quit - if you wont get an answer - time loop and back to the beggining if you got it the result (text + opening of cd rom) just freeze - do not shut down this program.

That will be fine!

One other thing - if somebody want to - you can re-doo script that counts letters (here i just have words that has 2 same letters that the right one) i't would be great to add other words and make program count them and show other results like comparing "key word" 'pedestrian' to 'lesbian' >output> wrong password 5/10 Characters Right. But its optional :)

Anyway i dont care that this is hardcoded.

You could surround it with an infinite do while loop.

[cpp]
int main() {

do {

.......

} while (1);

system("PAUSE");
return 0;
}
[/cpp]

That doesn't use a function but it's easy enough to add one.

Nicely done - but how to prevent it from closing? And i mean "forever" not loop just print msg and then freez program.

You can add an infinite while loop. I also made it only update the time remaining each second. It was showing each millisecond before. I hope you learn this and don't just copy it for homework. I haven't played Fallout 3 but I saw this hacking game in a video of it.

[cpp]#include <cstdlib>
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>
#include <ctime>

using namespace std;

int main() {

string your_attempt = " ";

while (your_attempt != "AGREE") {
int n;
int num_attempts = 4;
int lockout_time;
int y;
time_t now;
int old;

cout << "ROBCO INDUSTRIES (™) TERMLINK PROTOCOL" << endl;
cout << "ENTER PASSWORD NOW" << endl;
cout << endl;
cout << num_attempts << " ATTEMPT(S) LEFT: ";
for (n = 0; n<num_attempts; n++) {
cout << "?";
} cout << endl;
cout << endl;
cout << "0xF4F0 VIRAL 0xF5BC MINES" << endl;
cout << "0cF4FC DARED 0xF5C8 LIKES" << endl;

cout << "Incorrect! " << "1/5 Characters Right" << endl;
}
else { cout << "Incorrect! " << "2/5 Characters Right" << endl; }

}
num_attempts = num_attempts - 1;

Well something went wrong : P

About copying - I want to start to learn this language same way i have learned gta2 scripting. But now i'm having problems with time and you know that time is what you need when you learn language.

Does it do that every time? Might need to initalise some variables or change NULL to 0.

I'm installing Visual Studio now. It worked fine in mingw.

I initialised "now" variable and changed NULL to 0.

[cpp]
#include <cstdlib>
#include <iostream>
#include <iomanip>
#include <string>
#include <ctime>

using namespace std;

int main() {

string your_attempt = " ";

while (your_attempt != "AGREE") {
int n;
int num_attempts = 4;
int lockout_time;
int y;
time_t now = time(0);
int old;

cout << "ROBCO INDUSTRIES (™) TERMLINK PROTOCOL" << endl;
cout << "ENTER PASSWORD NOW" << endl;
cout << endl;
cout << num_attempts << " ATTEMPT(S) LEFT: ";
for (n = 0; n<num_attempts; n++) {
cout << "?";
} cout << endl;
cout << endl;
cout << "0xF4F0 VIRAL 0xF5BC MINES" << endl;
cout << "0cF4FC DARED 0xF5C8 LIKES" << endl;
cout << "0xF508 WIRES 0xF5D4 PARTS" << endl;
cout << "0xF514 LINES 0xF5E0 HAREM" << endl;
cout << "0xF520 LIVES 0xF5EC LINED" << endl;
cout << "0xF52C SORTS 0xF5F8 WARNS" << endl;
cout << "0xF538 AGREE 0xF604 THREW" << endl;
cout << "0xF544 FARMS 0xF610 SIDES" << endl;

do {
if (num_attempts > 0) {
cout << " > ";
cin >> your_attempt;
if (your_attempt != "AGREE") {
if (your_attempt == "VIRAL" || your_attempt == "LINES" || your_attempt == "LIVES" || your_attempt == "SORTS" || your_attempt == "FARMS" || your_attempt == "MINES" || your_attempt == "LIKES" || your_attempt == "PARTS" || your_attempt == "LINED" || your_attempt == "WARNS" || your_attempt == "SIDES") {
cout << "Incorrect! " << "1/5 Characters Right" << endl;
}
else { cout << "Incorrect! " << "2/5 Characters Right" << endl; }
}
}
num_attempts = num_attempts - 1;
cout << num_attempts << " ATTEMPT(S) LEFT: ";
for (n = 0; n<num_attempts; n++) {
cout << "?";
} cout << endl;
} while (your_attempt != "AGREE" && num_attempts != 0);

if (your_attempt == "AGREE") {
cout << "Exact Match! +75 XP" << endl;
}
else {
cout << "You have been temporarily locked out! Contact the Administrator!" << endl;

now = time(NULL);
lockout_time=now+180;

while (now<lockout_time) {
now = time(0);
if (now && now!=old) {
cout << lockout_time-now << " until lockout ends" << endl;
old = now;
}
}
}
}

//system("PAUSE");
while(1){}
return 0;
}

Okey, so far so good - its working as i wanted. Last one thing - I discovered that you can type whatever you want for example: 'poop' and it still return 2/5 letter info - The result i wanted should be only for words from code, otherwise it should return other text like: WRONG.

You could use http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/string/string/find/ to find letters in the strings.

Since the position of the letters is fixed, you don't need to use find, you could use:
http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/stri ... ng/substr/
http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/stri ... g/compare/

If you aren't expected to use those then you could make another word list with just words that share 2 letters.

im going to make list that just share 2 letters. And hardcode them. So if you put something else than they you will recive other communicate.

I ended up not using find, substr or compare. This version can show any number of correct letters and doesn't use word lists.

THANKS~!
Ok, So now i can change password and hints to whatever i want but it has to have 5 letters, yes? Or at least the same ammount of letters so i can change just outcome for "/xletters"

Am i right?

your_attempt.resize(5);

Change 5 to password length + 1 or password.size()
