    Exclamation I'm stuck on my Camelot game

    I'm completely lost, and this is due Monday, March 12th. I've been working on the User class and my setters, getters, and constructor are never happy I've attached my progress so far. If somebody could do just ONE of the Animated subclasses (user, knight, or peasant) i would greatly appreciate it. [I'm using Eclipse (Helios) btw.
    Thank you - stagnit.

    I suggest you check the java docs for this game here: Javadoc documents for Camelot

    Below are the instructions to my assignment:


    You will implement the classes shown in in the figure, along with a Game class which holds the board description. The specific methods that each class will implement are explained in detail in the Javadoc documents for Camelot (which you must read and follow). Notice that the documentation tells you exactly which methods and which properties you need to implement for every class. The Animated class has a protected enum Direction {N,S,E,W}; which shows up as Animated.Direction in the javadocs.

    The program will have a main in the Game class which looks like this:
    Public static void main(String[] args) {
        Scanner keyboard = new Scanner(System.in);
        Game g = new Game();
        g.add(new Sword(3,3));
        User user = new User(1,4);
        g.add(user);
        g.add(new Knight(5,5));
        g.add(new Peasant(9,5));
        g.add(new Peasant(6,7));
        g.add(new Peasant(4,8));
        g.add(new Peasant(7,2));
        g.add(new Peasant(3,5));
        String command = "";
        do {
          System.out.println(g); //print out the game board
          System.out.print("Your move:");
          command = keyboard.next();
          user.move(command); //move the user
          g.moveAll(); //move everyone
          g.resolveConflicts(); //resolve any conflicts between those in the same row,col
        } while (user.isAlive());
     }

    A sample run of the program looks like:

    Basically, the user tells the User how to move (N,S,E,W). The knights move randomly (one of N,S,E,W) on each turn. The peasants flip a coin, if heads they stay put otherwise they move randomly (one ofN,S,E,W). The world is 10 by 10 and wraps around.

    The resolveconflicts method is described in the javadocs. It goes over every Thing. If there is another Thing in the same row,col position then, if the Thing is a Knight it kills (removes) any Thing else there. If it is the user then if it finds the sword there it picks it up (thus killing it) and it is it a peasant it kills it.

    I recommend you implement this program in the following order:
    1. The Thing hierarchy, start at the top and work your way down. Start with the properties, then the toString() methods, then the move() methods.
    2. The Game class, its properties and constructor.
    3. Game.toString(), test it.
    4. Game.add()
    5. Game.remove()
    6. Game.thingsAt()
    7. Game.moveAll(): this should just call move() on every thing.
    8. Finally, Game.removeConflicts()

    All i'm asking is for someone to download my work so far, and complete either User, Knight, or Peasant class. I should be able to do the rest. I would greatly appreciate it.

    You can't honestly think that what you're asking is at all reasonable? Stop being so lazy and put some effort into it.
    Work on it yourself and come back to us when you've encountered a programming error, and when you do, post a full stack trace of the exception accompanied by the relevant code posted on this page.

    He was doing what you should have done, so less of the patronising.
