Description:
Enclosed is the game of Battleship that I have developed. However, the function I need completed is the bestsearch function. There are 2 levels involved. The first level is complete. For level 2, it needs to find the best possible search. Sometimes it would be just a random move. However, if the computer found a hit, then it needs to search all areas around it either up and down to sink a ship. Once the ship has sunk, then it will again pick random moves until it finds another ship. If you need to add other variables, that is fine, but do not change the layout of the game. If you have any suggestions to make it better, then let me know. There is a multiplayer part of the game. That part is okay, so do not do anything with it. This is part of a larger project. Therefore, players will choose before going to battleship whether it will be multiplayer or not.

Deliverables:
The modified function completed and the included project delivered with the function.



Platform:
Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP

(Excellent)
   
I've just taken a look and I believe I can get the finished code to you within an hour of my accepted bid if you accept now, otherwise I can do within 24hours since I plan to leave my PC in a few hours time…

Also I read that you want level to be random until it hits a target. Maybe a better solution is to fire at every odd square, this way you can cover the board in half the time it normally takes.

For example you first fire at A1, then A3 then A5 ... B2, B4 etc... Doing this means that there will be no where for an enemy to hide.

Maybe you can make that level 3 difficulty...

Andrew
