Im writing a program to diplay a brick wall, problem is I cant seem to get \" every other\" row to appear to shift to the right/left. To truly look like a wall of bricks. ( is this confusing?) here is my code

#include \"DarkGDK.h\"

void DarkGDK()

int x,y,z;
int Max_X= 639;
int Max_Y= 479;
int width= 60;
int height= 40;

const DWORD red = dbRGB(255,0,0);
const DWORD black = dbRGB(255,255,255);

for(y = 0; y <= Max_Y; y+= 43)
for(x = 0; x <= Max_X;x+= 63)
dbBox(x,y ,x+ width,y+ height);


I though to add this to make every other row shift the x position to -30,

** if(y%2 != 0) **
x = -30;

it doesnt seem to work if I place it within the first or second loop, can anyone help?

OK first off, please put your code in
It's simple, highlight your code and hit the "code" button in the forum text edit box.

Secondly, this forum here is for DBC users (Dark Basic Classic). You will get more responses if you post on the Dark GDK board

Thirdly, why name yourself after this posts title? Why not give yourself and awesome name like Cardboard Carnage or Metabolic Meltdown, lol

And last of all, I don't understand your question

I would either change that to a grid system, as your most likely to need an array to hold the 'board' anyway, I would do that from the outset.

I think it might just be the loop causing confusion. If you use an integer X and Y, and multiply the position, you might have more convenient control over things. Like:

And with that, a simple booleon flag to offset on X...

That ''xoff = 1-xoff;'' bit will swap xoff between 0 and 1.
