Hi, I have an assigment to do, it`s a checkers board, and it has to be playable,I am new with matrixes and I am having trouble with the 2-dimensional matrix board, and setting the pieces, does anyone know where can I find code for reference.

Any help is more than welcome

What problems are you having with your Matricies?

Dim iBoard(8,8) as Integer
'Checker board is 8 squares by 8 squares
'The square at iBoard(0,0) is white
Dim i as Integer
Dim h as Integer
Dim EveryOther as Boolean

'This bool is used to place a checker
'every other square
EveryOther = False
For i = 0 to 2
For h = 0 to 7
If EveryOther = True Then
iBoard(i, h) = 1
EveryOther = False
Else
EveryOther = True
End If
Next h
Next i

EveryOther = False
For i = 5 to 7
For h = 0 to 7
If EveryOther = True Then
iBoard(i, h) = 2
EveryOther = False
Else
EveryOther = True
End If
Next h
Next i

This should set up your Matrix to contain 0's in the areas where no peice is and contain a 1 or a 2 in the area where White or Black has peices.
