    Default HELP? Rock paper scissors lizard spock game. Just need 1 last piece, can you help me?

    So here's my code. It's alllllll done except I need the errorCount to be round specific.

    You need to run the 2 classes together.

    So when you run it. The error count should increment for each round. With an allotment of 2 errors per round.

    Right now it's just 2 errors total for the entire project. So if you make an error in round 1 and round 2 it exits.

    I'm trying to make it so if you make 2 errors in 1 round if exits.

    So if you did:

    Round 1: "q"
    invalid input (error count =1)

    it reprompts

    Round 1: "1"
    Paper beats rock. You win a point (error count = 0)

    Round 2: "q"
    invald input (error count = 1)

    reprompts

    Round 2: "q"
    invalid input (error count = 2)
    you have entered too many invalid inputs
    system.exit(0)

    Does that make sense?

    I need the errorCount to be round specific.
    Would saving the errorCount in an array (or arraylist) with the index being the round do the job?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Thanks for the reply man!

    I'm not sure actually. I'm a super noob at programming ,but I'll give it a shot and let you know if it works!

    --- Update ---

    Ok so I have no idea how I would use an array for this.

    I'm using a giant switch statement for the game itself & right now I'm just trying to make my default case track the errors.

    So I'm trying to do something like

    default:
    System.out.println("The input you entered is invalid.");

    if (roundCount == 1)
    errorCount++;
    else errorCount = 0;

    if (roundCount == 2){
    errorCount++;
    else errorCount = 0;


    it works if for round 1 if I only have the first if else ,but when I try to use the same if else for the other rounds it just keeps reseting the error count to 0.

    outside the switch I have

    if(errorCount == 2 ){
    System.out.println("You entered too many invalid inputs.");
    System.out.print("Goodbye!");
    System.exit(0);

    Make errorCount an array and use the round number as the index.
    For the first round add to errorCount[0]
    for the second round add to errorCount[1]
    etc

    When posting code please wrap your code with
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.

    Ok! I fixed it!

    I guess I'm just dumb. I couldn't figure out the array ,but here's my fix if you're interested.

    <switch (playerChoice){
    			case "1":
    				//call to computer 
    				errorCount = 0;
    				roundCount++;
    				computerChoice = RockPaperScissorsLizardSpockComputerPlayer.getChoice();
    				System.out.println("The computer player chooses " + computerChoice);
    				switch (computerChoice){
    				case "rock":
    					System.out.println("Its a tie!");
    					System.out.println("No points are awarded.");
    					break;
    				case "paper":
    					System.out.println("Paper covers rock.");
    					System.out.println("The computer player wins a point.");
    					computerPoints++;
    					break;
    				case "scissors":
    					System.out.println("Rock crushes scissors.");
    					System.out.println("Congratulations! You win a point.");
    					playerPoints++;
    					break;
    				case "lizard":
    					System.out.println("Rock crushes lizard");
    					System.out.println("Congratulations! You win a point.");
    					playerPoints++;
    					break;
    				case "spock":
    					System.out.println("Spock vaporizes rock.");
    					System.out.println("The computer player wins a point.");
    					computerPoints++;
    					break;
    				}
    				break;>
