Minesweeper (Part 4/16)

  • Locked
We need to store the state of the playing field's cells somewhere. To do this, create a matrix (two-dimensional array) with the dimensions of the playing field. Populate the matrix with GameObject objects using this formula: gameField[y][x] = new GameObject(x, y); Now let's display all the cells o

Works. Look at both files carefully >> https://codegym.cc/help/4690 Suggest you read thru many postings in the HELP section to step thru each line. It's closer to real life programming with Minesweeper checking many many files interacting.

gameField[y][x] = new GameObject(x, y); I do not understand the logic of switching the x & y in the first part. I thought it was a typo. Can someone explain it to me please?

You may have noticed that the matrix coordinates are different from the classical rectangular coordinate system (Cartesian coordinate system). When you access the matrix, you first specify the y coordinate and then the x coordinate. In mathematics, it is customary to specify the x coordinate first, i.e. (x, y). https://codegym.cc/groups/posts/140-games-section-on-codegym-useful-theory

A couple of questions: 1. Does it make any difference wether I write the code this way gameField[x][y] = new GameObject(x, y); or this way gameField[y][x] = new GameObject(x, y); ??? It cracks me up that it's always x, y and then suddenly it is supposed to be y, x!? 2. I'm at the beginning of level 4 when it comes to the course. Today I took a look at the tasks and saw this Minesweeper task which is supposed to be level 0. At level 4 of the course we haven't even talked about arrays so far. So how does this all fit together? This Minsweeper task confronts me with arrays...how am I supposed to solve a level 0 task which obviously is not level 0! I am confused...

I think this exercise is for a highest level... not for a begining level where I was learning to use System.out.println(); I don't understand... I hope to understand this code I later lessons... I had to download the solution...

it may be because you have not use the variable x and y in the for loop

It's may useful; private GameObject[][] gameField = new GameObject[SIDE][SIDE]; "gameField[y][x] = new GameObject(x, y); " are at createGame() method

If you're having trouble like I did take a step back and make sure everything you're doing is logically consistent. I tried to make this way harder than it was and missed a few small details. For me, it helps to read the requirements FIRST because it goes in a logical order. The description tends to start with the most complicated thing and glaze over the simple first steps.
