Comparing each element of two arrays

Recommended Posts


I want to preface this post by saying I AM VERY INEXPERIENCED. So, please forgive me in advance if this was a really dumb question! 

Ok, so basically the overall project I'm working on is to read text in a game I'm playing and then use it to whatever end later on. Who knows!  Essentially, what this does is take the premeasured space a character sits in and read the pixels of one line.  So like for M  the 8th row of the letter would read [1111001111]. Anyway, What I'm wondering is how to compare two arrays that have the numbers of the line read compared to the key. They keys are preset arrays I have already written. I've read a number of answers on comparing arrays in this manner and I have to say that I feel really stupid. I either can't get the method to work or it doesn't seem to do exactly what I'm wanting. So, if you have any idea please please let me know!

One thing I did see was to use two for loops and run one forwards through an array and the nested one backwards and use an if function to compare each element of the array; however, I couldnt seem to get it to work. :( 

Thank you in advance for any help you can give!


P.S. Is this a terrible terrible waste of time and I should just learn how to read memory?

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now (there is also a link at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing game interaction - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked. :naughty:

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope. :)
