I'm like 99% positive this is right, but if I want to return a random value for a number from the 1-9 range, the code is this right?

Random( 8 ) + 1

Because it counts zero? I have this code already in my game so I hope it's right. Thanks!

random( 9 ) +1

random( x ) returns the interval [0,x-1]

therefore you need to add one to get the interval [1,x]

Are you sure Joe? Wouldn't that give me the result of 1-10 instead?

Needs to be Random(9)+1

Random( only counts 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7. Adding one makes that range 1-8

The three times I've tested this in-game I've gotten the results of 1, 5, and 6.

random ( x ) literally tells MMF to create a random number out of x numbers, from 0 to (x-1).

I.e you have random( 5 ) will be 0,1,2,3,4 but this is 5 numbers.

Yeah, though "0" isn't an amount of anything, it is still a value.

NULL or "" = nothing / blank value/field
"0" = something, not a blank field.

Stuff like this is really annoying I'll admit.. along with that whole inverted Y axis thing so + = down _ It hurts my maths brain

Just think of it like this:

you have a 350x350 frame:

Top left = (0,0)
Bottom right = (349,349)

Therefore to go from left to right you add 1 to x.

From top to bottom you add 1 to y.
