    Default FLAMES GAME

    public void FLAMES()
    {

    name1 = new StringBuffer(firstName.getText());
    name2 = new StringBuffer(secondName.getText());
    for (int i = 0; i < name1.length(); i++)
    {
    char ch = name1.charAt(i);
    for (int j = 0; j < name2.length(); j++)
    {
    if (ch == name2.charAt(j))
    {

    name1.deleteCharAt(i);
    name2.deleteCharAt(j);
    i = -1;
    break;
    }

    }

    }


    int totallength = name1.length() + name2.length();


    StringBuffer str = new StringBuffer("FLAMES");
    int cancel_value = 1;

    for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
    {
    cancel_value = totallength % str.length();

    if (cancel_value == 0)
    {
    cancel_value = str.length();
    }
    cancel_value--;

    if (cancel_value == 0)
    {

    str = new StringBuffer(str.substring(1));
    } else if (cancel_value == (str.length() - 1))
    {

    str = new StringBuffer(str.substring(0, str.length() - 1));
    } else
    str = new StringBuffer(str.substring(cancel_value + 1)
    + str.substring(0, cancel_value));

    }

    just.setVisible(true);
    Output.setText(relation(str.charAt(0)));


    }

    Put some System.out.println()s in your for loops that print out the values of the loop indexes (i and j) and also the contents of the StringBuffers name1 and name2 so that you can see how they change while your code is running

    Please don't resurrect a year old post, especially to post external links. Doing so will often make you look like you are posting solely to promote a website - which is considered spam.
