Problem with local variable
First off, here is the link: https://repl.it/@Deacon_Cronin/Final-Project-Hack
I'm working on this as a project. I'm a high school freshman right now, this is for my CS class. I'm having some trouble as when I call the random mission function normally it works fine and has no problems, but when I call it through the main menu function (check email and go to bar) it breaks. I have no idea why this is happening. Any help would be appreciated
Here is the repl I made from your code: https://repl.it/@heyitsmarcus/Final-Project-Hack
So, the problem you're running into is that when
difficulty gets passed into your
difficulty is not of type
difficulty is actually a
string. And the reason for this (took a minute to trace it back) is that when you are passing the
dif to the
random_mission() function, you are passing it directly from
input which makes it of type
string. But, you need
dif to be of type
int to pass the
elif conditions (and to apply any math to it).
if inp == '1': #dif is of type string here because it's coming directly from input dif = input('CHOOSE DIFFICULTY (1-3): ') random_mission(dif)
All you have to do to fix this problem is to pass it as an
int to the
random_mission() function by wrapping it in the
if inp == '1': #now dif will be of type int because it's transformed into an integer dif = int(input('CHOOSE DIFFICULTY (1-3): ')) random_mission(dif)
That was all that was needing to be done! Now, when you run it, you can start breaking passwords!
