hi, not sure i this is the right section but i got a problem with my 2D sprite.

i am able to move the sprite but when the x or y co-ord gets to 360 it will reset to 0 and keep moving...

anyone got any idea why this is happening

code below (bad but im new to Db)

MOD EDIT: Better to use code tags.

thanks guys

When you use WRAPVALUE, it wraps around 360 degrees - it's only intended for angles that one.

Hi, Joe, as VanB said you don't want to be using WRAPVALUE so change you're controls to something like:

if rightkey() = 1 then xpos = xpos + 1

use this format for all the controls / movement and then after the controls / movement code add:

if xpos < 0 then xpos = 0
if xpos > 100 then xpos = 100

I've used 0 and 100 but put your own limits in. Do this for ypos and this should limit the position of the sprite.
