So I like to be organized, and probably the best for me is using multiple files. So, how exactly would I do this? I want to call the player.agc file from the main.agc file, how would you do that?

After creating your project, you add new files by taking the

File | New File

option. You make this available to your project by including it in the main project, at the top:

#include "player.agc"

Any functions you write in player.agc are available from the main file, or any other files you include.

You can also #insert. This directly inserts whatever is in your file, into the place you used the #insert command.

You need to create a function or sub-routine in the player.agc file that you call from the first file. Not sure what you are trying to do here but having multiple do-loop's can cause all sorts of problems.

Here is a simple example of what an additional file is good for.

main.agc:


player.agc:

One of the other problems was including main.agc in player.agc.

Don't include main.agc in anything else. It is the main file that gets executed.

When the code files are compiled, all are processed (if included in either main.agc or in a file that is included in main.agc). This makes all the globals and functions available to all other files.

Cheers,

You make your variables global. This isn't about files, but about use of variables in functions.

Global MyVariable as Integer
