Hi, I've just started using Python/Pygame as a hobby.
I've gotten the code to draw my Plane.png and move it using the wsad keys, and I mapped the q and e keys to rotate it which it does, but each time it rotates, it 'falls' down the screen to the bottom right and after a few key presses, disappears.
I read that this is because when it turns the sprite, it adds padding to resize the image while it is turning. I think that each time it turns, it adds more padding, making it add exponentially for each keypress. I can't figure out how to stop this from happening. Any help for a beginner greatly appreciated!
The Colours import is just a file where I keep my pre-defined colours for easier colour filling, and Plane.gif is an inch by inch and a half gif of a black plane with transparent background, and loads no problem, it just flies away when i use the e or q keys.
import pygame, sys, time, random from pygame.locals import * from Colours import * from PIL import Image, ImageDraw class MySprite(pygame.sprite.Sprite): def __init__(self): pygame.sprite.Sprite.__init__(self) self.image = pygame.image.load('Plane.gif').convert() self.rect = self.image.get_rect() self.x = 0 self.y = 0 def draw(self,surface): surface.blit(self.image,(self.x,self.y)) def onKeyPress(self): key = pygame.key.get_pressed() distance = 5 if key[ord('s')] or key[pygame.K_DOWN]: #down self.y += distance elif key[ord('w')] or key[pygame.K_UP]: #up self.y -= distance if key[ord('d')] or key[pygame.K_RIGHT]: #right self.x += distance elif key[ord('a')] or key[pygame.K_LEFT]: #left self.x -= distance rotate = pygame.transform.rotate if key[ord('e')]: self.image = rotate(self.image, 10) elif key[ord('q')]: self.image = rotate(self.image, -10) class Event(object): def __init__(self): for event in pygame.event.get(): if event.type == pygame.QUIT: pygame.quit() sys.exit() elif event.type == pygame.KEYDOWN: if event.key == pygame.K_ESCAPE: pygame.quit() sys.exit() pygame.init() fps = 30 fpsClock = pygame.time.Clock() size = width,height = 800,600 screen = pygame.display.set_mode(size) mySprite = MySprite() while True: event = Event() screen.fill(Blue) mySprite.draw(screen) mySprite.onKeyPress() pygame.display.update() fpsClock.tick(fps)
There's the code, hope you can help, thanks!
