ok so im trying to make a simple text adventure. and i have a slight problem. youll see









the problem is that on the 31st line it gives me an error saying "cannot convert int to boolean" ... so i turned it into a boolean, but (i know im a noob) I dont know how to use those so
i changed it back because it said the reverse, on the 43 line, how can i use an int or double in an if statement

There is a difference between an assignment operator (=) and relational equal to operator (==). The first one cannot be used in if statement, so:

is not valid.

you and probably half the people here have made that exact same mistake.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

And that's how you learn Java.. Unless you pluck 2-3 of your hairs, you will not improve better..

Can't help but notice that this topic has nothing to do with for statement.
