    Default Snake Game In Java

    Hello there how are you all. I am trying to make a Snake Game in Java and have managed to set up the cells required for the snake to move around in.

    What i am trying to do now is place food randomly. This method should find a randomly chosen clear cell. I was hoping i'd use a do-while loop.

    I understand to choose a cell, i will need to choose its X and Y values randomly an that these must lie in the range zero to one less than the size of grid.

    To obtain two integers in range 0.0 to n-1, i was hoping i can use the following:

    x = (int) (Math.random() * n);
    y = (int) (Math.random() * n);

    Any ideas on the do-while loop because i cannot get it to work.

    Please Help

    Kind regards

    Shyam

    Well, when do you want to continue doing that? What should be true when you repeat the do while loop?

    Nevermind, it turns out I'm wasting my time here, as the OP has already found an answer and neglected to share that with us.
