Hi there,

I had a quick look at your code and I think I can see the problem.

You want to move the 'sprite' statement to be just before the 'draw frame' command, they don't need to be inside the 'if' statements. The reason you're not seeing the sprite is because all the commands to draw the sprite are only executed when you're pressing either up down left or right. Once the sprite is set with the sprite command it will remain on screen until you use the 'sprite off' command. You can use a sprite command every frame to reposition or change the image of the sprite.

Your example could be done as follows:

int x=100,y=100

graphics mode 640,480
load images 128

while not mouse button
if left then x=x-1
if right then x=x+1
if up then y=y-1
if down then y=y+1

sprite 0,x,y,0
draw frame

If you have any more questions on TNT Basic, the best place to go is to our website community forums, there you can discuss the questions with other TNT Basic users who are also learning the language, this has the benefit that everyone can learn from each other.

Thanks and enjoy TNT Basic!
