1  Game Development / Game Play & Game Design / Shooting a Fireball on: 2012-03-20 19:14:39
Hey guys,
In my game I've been trying to shoot a fireball.  So far I've been successful in getting it to shoot from the character, but I've run into a little problem.  I have two variables for my player's location, playerX and playerY, and when you move these are overwritten based on which key you hit (Ex. right = playerX += 25).  The problem i'm having is that the fireball draws from the original X and Y, where the character is originally drawn in, not the new X and Y coordinates from when I move.  I would post the code but it's a bit messy and lengthy.  Any suggestions?  Huh

P.S. I'm pretty fluent in Java, but still a begginner in Game development so anything helps Smiley
