When you FixSpriteToScreen it's like creating a second world. It is intended for GUI elements, such as high score or health. I've never seen a technique that involves mixing player and enemies using the 2 different coordinate systems.

If you want to scroll the screen but keep the player in place, then you simply need to offset the player's position in the same way you offset the screen coordinates.

thank you so much. i read places to fix the sprite to the screen but just doing the offset worked like a charm.
