#1

So I’m trying to make a bot that when you give it letters, it will try to unscramble them into a word. Right now it supports 3 letters and I’m trying to teach it the word ‘FOX’. But every time you hit the FIND WORD button it either says OOO or FFF or XXX. I don’t understand why, help. @RexFrens

Help please someone.


#3

Dang it! Everyone’s probably doing school! frustrated sigh


#4

Can you give us a link to the project? There might be a variable error, it would be easier to figure out if we could take a look at the code.


#6

I’m home. Plz link the project.


#7

Oops yeah here’s screenshots








#8

Idk. I looked for a mistake that I’ve seen before, but didn’t see it. Maybe tag POMTL? Idk.


#9

Do u want me to tag pomtl


#10

I have school holidays! Doesn’t everyone?


#11

Yeah, I do but the nearest holiday break is a month or two away…unless I’m forgetting one


#12

No, I live in Australia. We start school in January. We are on our Term 3 break which lasts 2 weeks.


#13

Huh…way different system.


#14

We start January. Each time a term is over, (There are 4 terms in the year) We get a 2 week break. At the end of the year, We get a 7 week break

@Mr.rex
I’d be happy to try to help, but could you give a link to the project (publish, copy link, unpublish)?


#16

#17

Could you explain the intended logic behind all the Check Ifs?


#18

Ok, you have
Set ‘Determine Letter 2’ to 3
and
Set ‘Determine Letter 3’ to 2

Reverse that and the letters end up as FOX


#19

But the thing is there’s going to be multiple words and it’s gonna need to detect what word to unscramble into


#20

Lol, yeah just realized that makes it start off as fox without unscrambling


It seems that you’re just trying to code:

If exactly one of the letters = F
and
If exactly one of the letters = O
and
If exactly one of the letters = X

Then

Letter 1 = F
Letter 2 = O
Letter 3 = X

Is that about right?


#21

But what if there’s one word with the exact same letters as another one?
