    Default Re: TicTacToe reset problems

    any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
    First step would be to remove: System.exit(0); so that the program doesn't exit.
    Next decide what needs to be done to reset the game. What variables need to have their values changed?


    BTW How much of this code did you write yourself?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
