    Default Text adventure game help

    Hello i am currently starting to write a text adventure game in java but i havent been able to find a line of code that allows the computer to keep going and not end after displaying a the first message. Im using Eclipse classic if that makes any diffrence also im using this as a reference:

    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Custom_Methods_Return_Statements_and_Parameters {

    static Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
    public static void main(String[] args){


    }
    public static void inputTest(){
    String message = input.nextLine();
    System.out.println(Hello(message));

    //Note this is case sensitive if you type Hi instead of hi it will not say Hello!
    }


    public static String Hello(String message){
    if (message.equals("Hi")){
    return "Hello";
    }else{
    return "Goodbye";
    }
    }
    }
    <YOUR CODE HERE>

    allows the computer to keep going and not end
    Are you asking how to write a loop that will keep going?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
    [code=java]
    <YOUR CODE HERE>
    [/code]
    to get highlighting and preserve formatting.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Here are links to the tutorial for some loop statements:
    The while and do-while Statements (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
    The for Statement (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
