I'm wondering how to effectively generate random numbers with my PICAXE 08M2. The following is my code:
; Inputs symbol push_red = C.1 ; In 1 symbol push_buzzer = C.3; In 3 ; Outputs symbol buzzer = C.2; Out 2 symbol led_red = C.4; symbol action = b0 symbol randnum = w5; symbol randbit = w6; main: FOR action = 1 TO 5 RANDOM randnum LET randbit = randnum // 10 IF randnum > 4 THEN PAUSE 500 low led_red pause 500 high led_red ELSE SOUND buzzer,(100, 100) ENDIF NEXT action SOUND buzzer,(120, 200)
Even though I'm generating a new random number with every loop, the result is always the same: LEDs light up, no sound generated. I've read some articles about dividing
randnum by an appropriate number, but not sure how that works.
