Hi all,
I was wondering if anybody could help me, I am looking to build an applet of the 'QueenJourney' game, the description of the game is here. This is a MIDlet version wheras I want an applet version. It is basically a chess board with only the Queen on the board, and the user has to cover each of the 64 squares within a maximum of 14 moves. I would be obliged if anyone can help me on this subject.
Below is what I have up till now, it does not have the functionality that I want yet:I am sure I should be using arrays but am not familiar with their use
Thanks for any help,

What exactly do you have questions about. I am willing to help, but I don't have time to go through each line of code. If you can give me some idea of where you are running into problems, I can give you more helpful advice as well.

Tom, your link does not work.

Getting someone to think and try something out is much more useful than just telling them the answer.

I need to show,the moves that the Queen has taken (I guess by identifying where the Queen is on the board)this would allow me to build in exeptions and errors. Would I be better creating the board with arrays and if so how
Thanks again
