You have to exclude the numbers already picked.

Using conditions.

Set a variable:
=> Set var X = random(10)+1

Compare that variable to others already seted:
+If var X == var Y
=> Set var X = random(10)+1
Use loops to reapeat this until the condition "+If var X == var Y" is wrong.

Maybe there are another way to do this, but i can't think any other way right now.Metal_X2012-05-23 22:07:57

Thanks for your quick help. It works as it should but it is extreme slow.

It takes 3-4 seconds for all 10 numbers to be generated.

If i turn FPS to unlimited it is much much faster.

Is there a faster way for doing this? I need the numbers on the fly but i dont want to turn off vsync.

But you used loops? With loops you can do it in 1 frame.

shure but there is a problem using loops on this because i can not use expressions fpr writing the nubers to the variables.

I don't get it to work. To bad my english is not that good. I try to explain what exactly i want.

I have an Array with 10 Flields on X axis. For each field i want a number from 1-10 but without repeat used numbers.

this could look like this: 5,8,2,1,6,9,3,10,4,7

No double numbers, just the numbers from 1-10 in a random order.

Thank you so much.UnixRoot2012-05-24 08:30:45
