    Simple RPG

    I searched a lot of forums, but I can't really find the answer to my problem. Simply put, my problem is that my character won't move. Here's my code:

    Private Sub frmMain_Load()

    Randomize 'sets the randomizer

    r = Fix(Rnd * 100) Mod 10 'sets how many moves it will take to enter the battle subroutine

    lblLevel.Caption = Fix(Experience / 50) + 1 'displays the level

    End Sub

    Private Sub frmMain_KeyDown()

    If KeyCode = vbKeyEscape Then 'the game ends if the escape key is pressed

    Me.Hide

    Else

    Do Until r < 0 'loops the movement keys

    If KeyCode = vbKeyW Or KeyCode = vbKeyUp Then 'checks if W was pressed

    If imgElf.Top - 480 = img8.Top And imgElf.Left = img8.Left Then

    Boss = 1

    Me.Hide

    frmBattleSub.Show

    ElseIf imgElf.Top - 480 = img1.Top Or imgElf.Left = img1.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = img196.Top Or imgElf.Left = img196.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image6.Top And imgElf.Left = Image6.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image18.Top And imgElf.Left = Image18.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image25.Top And imgElf.Left = Image25.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image29.Top And imgElf.Left = Image29.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image39.Top And imgElf.Left = Image39.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image41.Top And imgElf.Left = Image41.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image51.Top And imgElf.Left = Image51.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image59.Top And imgElf.Left = Image59.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image65.Top And imgElf.Left = Image65.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image72.Top And imgElf.Left = Image72.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image74.Top And imgElf.Left = Image74.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image77.Top And imgElf.Left = Image77.Left Or imgElf.Top - 480 = Image83.Top And imgElf.Left = Image83.Left Then

    Re: Simple RPG

    Please use the [code][/code] tags, no one would bother reading such a lengthy piece of unformatted code. Now, I'm not a VB programmer, but I can give you some general tips. First, narrow down the problem, find the parts of your code that are relevant to the issue, try commenting out some stuff, debug it. Second, it's probably one of two things: either your code doesn't update the locations for some reason, or you're not refreshing your screen.
    Maybe there's a design flaw. Either way, you'll have to experiment a bit.

    Re: Simple RPG

    That code is way to cluttered to read.
    Always use [code][/code] tags when posting code.

    Re: Simple RPG

    I had a quick look and your problem is

    Code:
    Do Until r < 0
    
    -----
    
    Loop
    Your looping over and over until all all keypresses are done, and the page does not get a chance to refresh... Take the Loop out, and try it again....
