Hello. I am having trouble with my menu and buttons (which are just pictures that change when you scroll over them). One of my buttons works perfectly, but when I coded the rest in the same way (at least I think so) they dont work. Sorry for the long code. The main part (where it draws the graphic, etc) I hilighted in red. Another problem I am experiencing is that when I set titlemenu to 0 (titlemenu = 0) when declaring and then click start the game doesn't run, but when I set it to 2 initially (titlemenu = 2) then the game runs fine. one thing I should clarify pis pause (when p = 1 a pause menu pops up. en is enemy). Thanks for any help. Again sorry about the long code.

You may get more help if you mark your old questions as answered, or at least give some feedback as to whether the time people have put into helping you resulted in a solution.

A "thank you" wouldn't go amiss either.

Edit - We dont have a load of images called "playb2.gif" etc etc in appropriate folders. If you want help with such a big program people need to be able to run it. Make a getImage method that uses the string ("playb2.gif" etc) If it cannot find it, make a square image with the string "playb2.gif" drawn on to it, this way anybody can run it easily.

You may also get more help if u use code tags for your posts....

Edited 3 Years Ago by happygeek: fixed formatting

I did use the code tags. they didn't work. I tried fixing it but it didn't work.

Thanks the the help you were trying to give, but I solved everthing.
