The solution you provided causes the method not to work anymore. . . if I undo it partially works (prints but in wrong place).

Missile.java paint method:

        // paints image
      public void paint(Graphics g, Main main){
          if(visible){
          g.drawImage(missileimage, sprite.getX(), sprite.getY(), main);
          String variable = String.valueOf(sprite.getX()); // get x
          g.drawString(variable, 10, 10); // print current x of sprite
          }

}

Main.java:

       // Paints
    public void paint(Graphics g){
        sprite.paint(g, this);
        missile.paint(g, this);

Missile.java press space:

             // Key detector
          public void keyReleased(KeyEvent e){
          switch(e.getKeyCode()){
          case KeyEvent.VK_SPACE:{
               //velshotx  = 0;
               break;
          }

     }
}

          public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e){
          switch(e.getKeyCode()){
          case KeyEvent.VK_SPACE:{
               visible = true;
               break;
          }

     }
}

          // update emthod
      public void update(Main main){
        main.addKeyListener(this);


}

Use lots of print statements to check that methods are being called and key variables/returned values (eg sprite.getX()) have the values you expected. The change we made will not, of itself, break the code so there's somethig else lurking in there that we just exposed.

The methods are being called. Is it to do with these in Missile.java that the missile image doesn't print on SPACE press?

         // Missile contrustor loads image
       public Missile(Main main, Sprite sprite){
         this.sprite = sprite;
         url = main.getDocumentBase();
         missileimage = main.getImage(url, "missile.png");

} 

and

          // update emthod
      public void update(Main main){
        main.addKeyListener(this);

}

If every method is being called as expected, and every variable amd method return has the correct value then your program must be perfect. You're just not looking hard enough. Don't rely on your assumptions about what your code must be doing. If it were following your assumtions then it would work.

It's not that. You ignored my post 5 days ago about your serious problem with adding your listeners. You obviously did not follow my advice about debugging 3 days ago - despite trying to fob me off with vague claims that you did. That's why I stopped wasting my time. I suspect many others saw how this thread was going, and came to the same conclusion.

I did debug as best as I knew (new to java), and they were being called, unless I missed something ... so I posted my code for others to check if they wanted to help.

OK, one last try.
Your symptom is that when you press Space you don't get the results on the screen that you expect.

Put a print statement in your key listener to confirm that it is being called when you expect.
Put a print statement inside the part that tests for the space key to confirm that you are detecting the right key correctly.
Put a print statement in the Shot paint method to confirm that that is being called (print the "visible" variable to see if that has the expected value)

See what those tell you, then try some more of your own. Confirm every step of your code by printing the vraiables.

Ok, so, when I press SPACE "space" text appears (so it works, partially), but not the shot image.

The boolean visible returns correctly, also.

It's hard to print in an applet

My conclusion is that this line isn't working (most important):

g.drawImage(shotimage, player.getX(), player.getY(), main);

The rest of the code in that method does:

        // paints image
      public void paint(Graphics g, Main main){
          if(visible){
          g.drawImage(shotimage, player.getX(), player.getY(), main);
          String variable = String.valueOf(player.getX());
          g.drawString(variable, 10, 10);
          g.drawString("space", 10, 20);
          }

}
