I used someone else's code as an example to start my game and move my character around. I understood the majority of it but there's a couple of parts I don't get.
I want my character to move Up when the up arrow is pressed, but smoothly! My code right now will move him and switch the images to make it look like he's walking, but it blinks between every frame because I reload the background to clear the old character off of the screen. I can't figure out any other way to do it though.
I know my code design right now is horrible and confusing, I'm sorry. I would like someone else's opinion on how this whole project should be structured, if you would be so kind.
The zip file below is my entire project as of now. Not much. :P
