What's wrong with my code?

What's wrong with my code? I get 2 errors, 1: illegal else without matching if line 93. and 2: end of file found before the left brace '{' at 'Filename.cpp(29)' was matched line 259. Please help! This is my first real attempt at making a program entirely by myself but I need some advice. I know it has probably something to do with the organization of the blocks and the semi-colons.

NOTE: I use Visual C++.
What's wrong with my code? I get 2 errors, 1: illegal else without matching if line 93. and 2: end of file found before the left brace '{' at 'Filename.cpp(29)' was matched line 259.


Your compiler tells you exactly what's wrong with it. You have an illegal else without a matching if, and your braces don't match up. If you're using Visual C++, put your cursor on the brace on line 93. The matching brace will be highlighted. I bet it isn't the brace on line 62.
Thanks! I was actually looking around to see if the braces matched up but didn't see that I missed a '}' for line 70.
Use some functions too :) Here is code of a LifeRPG I am currently developing. I am new to programming too.. so mine is probably really bad ^^
