I am developing a simple bookworm-like word game using game maker pro 8.0. Words are formed using the tiles of letters. As soon as the player composed a word using the letters, it must be determined whether the word exists in the word list. And when the word exists, the score will be computed. Each letter has corresponding points which will make up the total score for the word formed. The scoring system will be like the scrabble scoring system.The letters will be dissolved and the letters are replaced with new set of letters. I am having trouble in coding the event of randomizing tiles/letters. Can anyone help me or give me some examples of codes for randomizing codes or the checking of the word in the word list?
Here is the screenshot of the room with the tiles:
I badly need help.
