This is just the start of a small shooter game that I am going to try to make. The problem with it is that when i reload it ends up taking more then one clip away. How can I make it so that the amount of clips only goes down once even if the reload button is held?

your using input.KeyDown thast your first problem , becuse that takes whats in the buffer , it knows when it was hit and relesed , you need to use getch i belive to just get it once , it only takes it character at a time till a charater matches ,i know that the proble m becuase blitz has a Input.KeyPressed , and Input.KeyDown, so i know its to do with that statement

code:


Input.KeyDown(chars)
if chars (KEY_TAB) and clips >0 then
delay (100)
fork reload
end if

Computer is too fast, I changed it to here, and it works.
You can still have negative clips though, plus if you press tab for too long, it still takes more than 1, you could even make the delay longer, it takes more than 1 millisecond to reload in real time too

this looks like it's going to be a really neat game. Keep up the good work. (I really like the shotgun sounds)

if you have turint 4.0.5 then you can use Input.Flush to clear the buffer.
I would definately use that over processes.

EDIT: or you could put a small delay in the if chars (KEY_TAB) part

Right now I am using

code:
if buttonmoved("up") and whatdotcolor(cx,cy)=2 then  %2 is the colour of the ball.


but I have heard that watdotcolor is not a good method to use b4

you can use an if statement.

code:

if mousex > ballx - ballradius and mousex < ballx + ballradius and mousey > bally - ballradius and mousey < bally + ballradius and mousebutton = 1 then


EDIT: if you know functions you could make your code a lot neater by putting that if statement into a function that returns true or false and then later calling the function.
