    Default FOR LOOP ISSUSES

    Im having problems with my for loop. The user has 3 times to roll the number that was guessed. when the condition is met on the the third try I want it to say that they won not that they lose
    for(int x = 0; x < 3 && hasWon == false; x++)
    {
    if(game1.getAnswer() == guess)
    {

    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, guess + "and " + game1.getAnswer() + " You WIN!!");
    hasWon = true;
    }
    else if(x == 3 && game1.getAnswer() != guess)
    {
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "YOU lose!!");
    }
    else
    {
    game1.setDice1(roll1);
    game1.setDice2(roll2);
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, game1.toString());
    }

    I'm not seeing any problem here. If the getAnswer() == guess then you get your win condition. If that is not happening i would look to see if getAnswer() and guess are getting "true" from that condition when they are actually equal. Depending upon what type getAnswer() and guess are you may need to use .equals(guess) instead off the == operator.

    Can you show more code? Can you show what your input/output is? Any errors displaying?

    also put your code in code tags please!
    Writing code is your job, helping you fix and understand it is mine.

    You need to post enough code to show the definitions for the variables used in the code.
    If the code is comparing String objects, it should use the equals() method not the == operator.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
