I was thinking github that way you could share the images too.

If you can put your project on github or place it somewhere to be downloaded I can show you what I mean.

It is because you are updating the position of the arrow entirely within one game loop iteration.

In order to fix this, you'll need to incrementally update the position of the arrow each iteration of the game loop (no separate for loop to update the arrow position arrowX += 1). Instead you might only add 1 to arrowX for each iteration of the main loop. In reality, you would want to calculate how far the arrow moved each frame based on the arrow's desired speed and how much time has passed since the last loop iteration.

I am on my phone, otherwise I could get into greater detail. Sorry!

In Topic: How beneficial can personal projects be?

I can say from my own experience that without personal project, I'd likely be flipping burgers today. Instead, I lead development of software that is used to plan all roadway projects funded by the state I live in.

Being able to prove that you actually know what you're talking about is huge when you're competing against a bunch of college grads who only took computer science because someone told them it was where the jobs are.

Yes, because I'm sure everyone living under ISIS does so completely by choice.

No-one, not even you, is totally innocent. You live in the first world. I guarantee that your life is only as good as it is because someone in the past did some awful shit, and now you're benefitting from it.

Or just think about all the things you own. Or think about the meal on your plate or the coffee in that mug. How many people have been exploited to produce those goods so that you don't have to choose between owning the next gen smartphone or making rent for the month?
