Hello I hope I can take a moment of everyones time, what Ive got at the moment is just an example of 2 cars falling down.

The car1 loads and When you press the right key it changes to car2 falling down. But I press left to switch back to car1, I get object already exists.

I dont know if I need to somehow delete a vehicle to make way for another vehicle, And I am abit stuck on what commands to put down to solve it

I know the codes not pretty but here it is

and thankyou for your time

The error is because you are loading the same objects again with the same object numbers
Only load each object once, and just switch which object is being used
You need to set up your program differently and have all your subroutines and functions come AFTER your main loop

Try this code...but change the 4 load lines first!

What I do to avoid duplicating objects is to create a global variable,
and then create a function

Then I call the function in the code when I need another object number, like this:

This way, objects are never duplicated. You can also do the same with images or sprites.
