Hey There! I'm making a game using Python(v2.6.6), and the PyGame library.
It's a RPG game, and I've barely started... But questions have already come up.
I want to make a way in which the character will not only go in all directions...
But I also want it so the sprite changes according to the direction I'm going.
I've managed to create a loop that animates the walking movement - For the Up and Down directions
but the image doesn't turn around according to the direction... Also the way I made to loop the images
was a I thing that came up to me - I'm not sure if it's correct, nor if its the best way to do so.
Here's my code, and thanks for any and all help:
