I need help on Library Tactician

# Hushbaum has been ambushed by ogres!

Here is my code let me know what I’m doing wrong, I’ve been working on this level for a week. I cant figure out what is wrong with my code, Please help.

hey there @Lukyme , welcome to the forum please read these rules and enjoy your stay

I’ve read the rules, Do you know if you can help me @cheddarcheese? The line in my code that is messing me up is 55.

is it this line?

Yes, I cant seem why it is not going through. It stops there and does not go with the rest of my code.

Try changing it to

for i in enumerate(archers):

Ok, I will try that.

It did not work, I tried it and it didn’t work. It is also because of a soldier dying. I’m just so confused. @qwerty

Can you send a screenshot of it?
p.s. sorry 4 late reply

I think the for i in range (len(archers) is fine. Maybe like check if there is an archer? (Also can you post a link cause im lazy to go find it and kinda lost in the levels)

you can also do for archer in archers: and then use the var archer

Ok sure I will post a link to it.

Ok thanks for the suggestion.

CodeCombat - Coding games to learn Python and JavaScript?

you can also do instead of defense points do hushBaum = hero.findNearest(hero.findByType("librarian")) hero.command(friend, "defend", hushBaum)

Im pretty sure you need to define hushBaum before. maybe something like
wizard = hero.findNearest(hero.findByType("librarian"))?
But defending the points work best.

1.Also, in your code, you have ; which is in JS.
2.At line 61, commandArcher(archer) is just fine.
3. You can del the line 59
If you have any other problemes in your code pls tell us :slight_smile:


It does not work. Do you have any other suggestions that might help?

Can u send a screen shot/current code? Make sure to use this

button when you post your whole code :smile:.
