    So boiling down your post (which had no question).... Your question is: Would you do my debugging for me, scrub through 1200+ line of my code for and fix my architecture for me? Does that sum it up?

    No. The volunteers here are you're debug monkeys. That's your job.

    This is where the *work* part of working on code comes in. Making a game is work. Its not playing a game, which so many people think it will be; which is why they go into game development to begin with. They think it will be just fun and play all day long with a paycheck at the end of the week.

    In the FAQ below are links to several good debugging tutorials. But essectially there is nothing magical to be done. You have to walk through your code line by line and check the values of your variable to see if they are what you think they should be. Walk it through on paper.


    If I move 'a' to here, then x should be come blah blah...
    Then see if that is what happens.

    Learning to debug one's own code is an essential skill. Sadly, one that apparently few college courses teach. Silly if you ask me.

    Placing breakpoints and walking through the code line by line allows you to actually WATCH it execute.

    Visualizing what your code does will let you see why it behaves the way it does.

    It would be well worth your time to do the tutorials on FAQ 2. A couple hours learning this skill will save you hundreds of hours of confusion in one project alone.

    FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions - Updated July 2013

    After reading you reply I went back and reread my post, and I could see where 1: I have not asked a question and 2: (based on my post) I wanted someone to debug my program. I sincerely apologize as this was not my intention, I have struggled to hard to get this far, and in my opinion it is the program designers job to debug his own work. Even though I ask for help here I continue to work on my own to figure out my problem (though most time sad to say I fail to figure them out). Thank you for pointing out what I have tried to avoid doing, and once again I sincerely apologize for asking others to do my work for me as that is not was not my intention.
