motion sprite RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to get a motion sprite to move.  

    I'm on my 4th version at the moment.

    The plan is that its a planned movement, like an avatar, whilst rendering to the display screen positions.  

    Its all getting quite annoying because I figured through class problems, which I don't get anyways (as it was the underlying problems for the 1st and 3rd versions.  

    I know I'm after a procedure side solution, but does that mean I have to write the collisions out, before it'll click through, or is that just a trial and error.  

    I am also really trying to avoid this being too complex for two reasons, and I just need the blighter to move, whilst I've been told I'm already over implicating it and to keep it simple.  

    I will appreciate the help.  

    Thanks

  • I have it.  

    I found the add resource Class feature of the software.  

    Sorted, so no need to try out DIR etc.  

    I guess that moves it to an application layer, rather than a presentation Maze

  • In order for something to move, you need to change it's X and Y positions.

    Sometimes you need to delete it and redraw it. Other times, you can just change it's position.

    Sometimes X and Y are properties hidden inside of another property, such as Location or Position.

    Good luck.

  • Yeah,  

    I got a book which said to use 'other', but the syntax didn't seem to recognise it, so I expanded it to a variable.  

    (Note: the book was saying to write it as written consoles, then during debug to alter it thereafter - procedurally)

    I've tried using web help before, but it was all very specific and unintelligible.  

    I kind of get why now.
