my sprite can't move

Recommended Posts

Hi, I started making simple pong like game in phaser but i don't really want to use any tutorial step by step so i started making game, when i try to make movement for paddle i saw first problem.

My paddle don't move and completely i have no idea why. Anybody can show me what's i'm doing wrong?

There is a main file with js

//this game will have only 1 state
var GameState = {

//load the game assets before the game starts
  preload: function() {
    //adding sprites
  //executed after everything is loaded
  create: function() {    
    //adding background
    game.stage.backgroundColor = '#d3de33';
    //adding ball
    ball = this.game.add.sprite(game.world.centerX,game.world.centerY,'ball');
    //adding paddles
    paddleLeft = this.game.add.sprite(5, game.world.centerY, 'paddle');
    paddleRight = this.game.add.sprite(795, game.world.centerY, 'paddle');
    //paddle movemment
    if (game.input.keyboard.isDown(Phaser.Keyboard.LEFT))
        paddleLeft.x -= 50;
    }    else if (game.input.keyboard.isDown(Phaser.Keyboard.RIGHT))
         paddleLeft.y += 50;
  update: function() {

        //render paddles
        game.debug.spriteInfo(paddleLeft, 20, 32);


//initiate the Phaser framework
var game = new Phaser.Game(800, 600, Phaser.AUTO);

game.state.add('GameState', GameState);

Hi LaaW,
you are checking for keyboard inputs in the create function, so just once when the game starts.

Use the update functions, instead, and it works fine, like this:

As shown in the Phaser keyboard example, too:

Phaser examples are a good start too, if you don't want to follow step by step tutorials.

Cheers! :)
