How can I change the image of a sprite during update function?


Recommended Posts

I'm very new to Phaser, sorry if this is a dumb question.

I am working on a game where I want the health of the player to be expressed as pixelated heart. It should grey out if the player has lost it or should stay red if they have good health.

(Similar to minecraft's health system)

So, I loaded in both the sprites I made in Aseprite this way.

this.load.image('heart', 'Images/heart.png');
this.load.image('heart-grey', 'Images/heart-grey.png');

Then I create all 5 hearts this way.

var heart1 = this.add.sprite(0, 0, 'heart').setOrigin(0, 0);
var heart2 = this.add.sprite(32, 0, 'heart').setOrigin(0, 0);
var heart3 = this.add.sprite(64, 0, 'heart').setOrigin(0, 0);
var heart4 = this.add.sprite(96, 0, 'heart').setOrigin(0, 0);
var heart5 = this.add.sprite(128, 0, 'heart').setOrigin(0, 0);

The hearts display perfectly. I want to change the keyword(3rd argument) of heart1 during my update function. How do I go about doing this?
