    Question Platform game sidescrolling

    Hey I am new with java and was following a video tutorial to learn it, but something that works with the tutor doesn't work for me and I don't know what is wrong.
    It needs to do sidescrolling when A or D is pressed (A=left D=right) but it doesn't! In fact, my character won't even more anymore.

    And I don't know how to show you the codes because i can't add URLs

    Thanks in advance!

    Just CnP the code here. All you need to do would be something like this:

    -Every time your game loop does a loop, check if A or B is pressed; if the A key is pressed then do X-- else if the B key is pressed then do X++.
    -Now just render the screen with the new X location at the center.

    I can't really say much more than that without your code.

    1) Create an SSCCE 2) Copy the code 3) paste the code into the text box when posting to the forums - wrap all code using the [highlight=java][/highlight] tags
