### Need Help with this mini game

I need help with this program it wont work and I don't know how to fix it can anyone help please?

// minigame
#include <iostream>
#include <ctime>

using namespace std;

int main(){
int d6 ;
int ML ;

srand(static_cast<unsigned int>(time(0)));
d6 = rand % 10+1; // Error
cout << d6;
ML = rand % 10+1; //Error
cout << ML;
if(d6 > ML){
cout << "You defeated the goblin!" << endl << endl;}
if(d6 < ML){
cout << "You have been defeated by the goblin!" << endl << endl;
}
return 0;
}
 ``12345678910111213141516171819202122232425`` ``````#include #include // Necessary for rand() #include using namespace std; int main(){ int d6; int ML; srand(static_cast(time(0))); d6 = rand() % 10 + 1; // Changed cout << d6; ML = rand() % 10 + 1; // Changed cout << ML; if (d6 > ML){ cout << "You defeated the goblin!" << endl << endl; } if (d6 < ML){ cout << "You have been defeated by the goblin!" << endl << endl; } if (d6 == ML) cout << "You and the goblin have been defeated by entropy!\n\n"; return 0; }``````
Can someone tel me the use of static_cast<unsigned int> in this code?
I believe it is used or the level of "randomness" of the numbers chosen, in your case, 1-10.

I would just use srand(time(0));

easier and simple.
The cast is used to suppress a warning.
Wouldnt it be simpler to just use srand(time(0)) instead of using the static_cast thing?
Simpler yes, but as circe said it will generate a warning.

srand expects an unsigned int, but time(0) returns type time_t, hence the static cast to resolve the type mismatch.
Thx I got it cire. I'm gonna try and make this into a simple text based RPG just to get the basics of C++ and then try and add graphics and an engine and make it into a little game.
