Java help please!

Recommended Posts

I'm getting a "cannot be resolved to type" error in Java. I tried looking it up to no avail.

There are three pieces of code in this sidecroller I am making here: [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abL3UVisK6g&annotation_id=annotation_348268&feature=iv"]http://www.youtube.c...8268&feature=iv[/url]

The problem is in the third .java, Board.java (look for !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

[code]
package ss;

import javax.swing.JFrame;

public class Frame {

public Frame() {
JFrame frame = new JFrame("2D Game");
frame.add(new Board()); //Adds Board to Screen ala Frame
frame.setTitle("2D Test Game"); //title of frame
frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
frame.setSize(700, 365); //size of frame
frame.setVisible(true); //visiblity boolean
frame.setLocationRelativeTo(null);
}

public static void main(String[] args) {
new Frame();
}
}
[/code]

[code]
package ss;

import java.awt.Image;
import java.awt.event.KeyEvent;

import javax.swing.ImageIcon;

public class Dude {

int x, dx; //Sprite Locations
int y, dy; // ""
int nx; //first frame variable
int nx2; //second frame variable
int left; //Will prevent the player from moving backwards. as per usual sidescroller games
Image still; // Stores Image
ImageIcon l = new ImageIcon("C:\\Users\\Devlin\\workspace\\My RPG\\src\\sprite left.png"); //Get Image
ImageIcon r = new ImageIcon("C:\\Users\\Devlin\\workspace\\My RPG\\src\\sprite right.png"); //Get Image
// ImageIcon j = new ImageIcon("C:\\Users\\Devlin\\workspace\\My RPG\\src\\sprite right.png"); //Get Image
// ^^ Jump Image

public Dude () {
still = l.getImage(); //left sprite
still = r.getImage(); //right sprite
left = 150;
x = 75; //controls x speed
int nx2 = 685; //Handles end of the FIRST frame (sidescrolling)
int nx = 0; //handles location of the second frame
y = 172; //controls y speed
}
public void move() {
if(dx != -1) { //Prevents player from moving backwards
if(left + dx <= 150)
left = left + dx;
else {
x = x + dx; //movement = current position + destination positio
//y = y + dy; //Controls up movement
nx2 = nx2 + dx; //End of frame (sidescrolling) a la character and scrolling frame should move at same speed
nx = nx + dx;
}
}else {
if(left + dx > 0) {
left = left + dx;
}
}

}
public int getX() { //This Method allows you to send x out of the class
return x;
}
public int getY() { //This Method allows you to send y out of the class
return y;
}
public Image getImage() { //Returns the image
return still;
}
public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) { //Handles input
int key = e.getKeyCode();
if (key == KeyEvent.VK_LEFT) { //Controls movement left when key is pressed
dx = -1;
still = l.getImage();
}

if (key == KeyEvent.VK_RIGHT) { // ""
dx = 1;
still = r.getImage();
}
if (key == KeyEvent.VK_UP) {
dy = 1;
//still = j.getImage(); //For Jumping animation
}
//if (key == KeyEvent.VK_UP) {
// dy = -1;
//}
//
//if (key == KeyEvent.VK_DOWN) {
// dy = 1;
//}
}
public void keyReleased(KeyEvent e) { //Handles input
int key = e.getKeyCode();
if (key == KeyEvent.VK_LEFT) { //Controls left movement when key is released
dx = 0;
}
if (key == KeyEvent.VK_RIGHT) { // ""
dx = 0;
}
if(key == KeyEvent.VK_UP) {
dy = 0;
// still = i.getImage() //Return from jumping image to normal image
}
//if (key == KeyEvent.VK_UP) {
// dy = 0;
//}
//
//if (key == KeyEvent.VK_DOWN) {
// dy = 0;
//}
//These methods are now sent to Board to be processed
}
}

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Issue is with file below, it's complaining about the cycle method
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

}
g2d.drawImage(p.getImage(), p.left, v, null); //Gets image fro Dude, uses get methods to set location

private class AL extends KeyAdapter { //Determines what key is released

}
public void keyPressed(KeyEvent e) { //Handled in Dude
p.keyPressed(e);
}
}
public void run() {
long beforeTime, timeDiff, sleep; //All for time
//beforeTime is time before loop starts
//timeDiff is beforeTime - System.currentTimeMillis() aka how long it's been running
//sleep is for
beforeTime = System.currentTimeMillis();
while(done == false) {
cycle();
timeDiff = System.currentTimeMillis() - beforeTime;
sleep = 10 - timeDiff;
if (sleep < 0) { //Prevents negative sleep time
sleep = 2;
try {
Thread.sleep(sleep);
} catch(Exception e) {}
beforeTime = System.currentTimeMillis();
}
done = false;
h = false;
k = false;
}
public void cycle() { //Changes y locations
if(h == false)
v--; //Jump up
if(v == 125) //125 = max jump height
h = true;
if (h == true && v <= 172) //prevents player from falling through the floor
v++;
if(v == 172) //Is jump finished?
done = true;
}
}
}
[/code]

Your help is appreciated, when this is finished my char will be able to jump <3
