Okay... this may be hard (it seems it to me anyways) but I've made the start screen to an RPG. I want to make it so that when you move the character to a certain spot, and press enter, the screen clears and he appears on a different screen (same window if possible..), sorta like he was entering a building, and the background and everything changes but he can still be moved. Then I want it so that inside the 'building' thing, when he gets to a spot and presses 'enter', he goes back to where he left off on the original screen... I hope that made sense... any ideas on what to do to make it work? Thanks.

ok, for this should be put into keypress event

case RETURN %you might need to put ASCII value instead

if charlocationX = trapdoorX and charlocationY = trapdoorY then
'then character pressed Enter while standing on the trap door

call drawscreen("trapdoor room") 'calls procedure to draw background for the trapdoor room

charlocationX = newX
charlocationY = newY

'character is put into a new location on the screen

Well its kinda cheese, but I hope you'll get the idea
