Default Initial objects via user input? - 12-27-2009, 01:45 PM

Hello all...this *should* be simple, but I think I'm missing something very obvious...

I ask for user input at the start of a game as to how many asteroids they can handle at once (max 4)...

What I want to happen is to tell the items in the list to go invisible if they're not needed...

For example, if the user enters "3", then I want the last object in the list to go invisible...if they enter "2", then I want the last two objects, etc...

Must have drunk too much eggnog, because it's not coming easily to me...I've attached a screenshot of the method in question...

TIA!

:-)

If your number variable equals 1, asteroid 2 set is showing=false asteroid 3 set is showing=false asteroid 4 set is showing=false

If your number variable equals 2, asteroid 3 set is showing=false asteroid 4 set is showing=false

If your number variable equals 3, asteroid 4 set is showing=false

If you're number variable equals 4, do nothing.

But all these if elses next to each other, and at the bottom of them, Insert a method starting the game.

Thanks...I had thought of that, but had hoped there was a more elegant way of driving it. I appreciate you replying...
