I worked on my brawler game today.

Our good guy managed to beat down all his foes.

Now he is ready to go to the next room.

Now let's talk about the arrow: LOL

The arrow is made with sprites but some part of the sprites are missing.


If I set the arrow x to 40, it shows without problems.

But I want to place the arrow higher on the screen, like most brawler games do most of the time.

Ok. That's all for today.

Good night everybody.

Call SweepSprite() upon initialization so sprites are placed outside the screen boundry. Without that all the sprites at zero'd upon start, so the unused sprites are at position x=0,y=0.

Here's my code to place all sprites off screen:

void SweepSprites(void){
for (i=0;i!=32;i++){
sprites[i].y = 207;

Further explanation. When sprite[?].y=208, it sets a flag sprite termination flag for the sprite for the rest of the array to not show up. So if you place a that number in sprite[3].y=208. Sprite 3 and up won't show up. if you're moving the sprite up and down in the area out of bound, it'll skip that number(C code I noticed skip this number when sprites move vertically).

I place my sprites I don't need at 207 so I don't trigger the sprite termination.
