Help can be given if you start talking in specific terms, however I do recommend that you start new thread and leave this relic

Oh hey my mistake i was replying to someone else i didnt realize i started a new topic but if you can help me id appreciate it. I already posted this question but i did not receive a reply. Anyway i was wondering how exactly could i load two images at the same time im making a puyo puyo game and like the game the balls fall two at a time any insight on how to do that. I figure i have to final int the number of balls dropping which would be 2 but then im not sure where to go from there. I appreciate any help

I guess you missed the "specific" part of Peter's post.

You load two image just like you load one, but you do it more than once.

See how that "specific" part comes into play?

Sorry about that thought that made sense oh well anyway here is my code in order to be more specific what im trying to accomplish is to have two puyo balls load at the same time and are connected to each other and the user is able to rotate and move them as if they were one object.
