Game Development 2 (5. Chokepoint)


#1

What did I do wrong? when i clicked on test level nothing happened.

function defendLane(event) {
// Remember to create a variable for the target, to remember:
var unit = event.target;
// Save the unit’s starting pos.x
var startX = unit.pos.x;
while(true) {
var enemy = unit.findNearestEnemy();
// If there is an enemy, use unit.attack to attack!
if (Enemy)
unit.attack(Enemy);
Else;
unit.moveXY(startX, 16); // ∆

}

}

game.spawnXY(“soldier”, 9, 16);
game.spawnXY(“soldier”, 30, 16);
game.spawnXY(“soldier”, 54, 16);
game.spawnXY(“soldier”, 75, 16);

game.setActionFor(“soldiers”, “spawn”, defendLane);

With the code below, only one of the soldier move the other 3 stay still.

function defendLane(event) {
// Remember to create a variable for the target, to remember:
var unit = event.target;
// Save the unit’s starting pos.x
var startX = unit.pos.x;
while(true) {
var enemy = unit.findNearestEnemy();
// If there is an enemy, use unit.attack to attack!
if (enemy)
unit.attack(enemy);
Else;
unit.moveXY(startX, 16); // ∆

}

}

game.spawnXY(“soldier”, 9, 16);
game.spawnXY(“soldier”, 30, 16);
game.spawnXY(“soldier”, 54, 16);
game.spawnXY(“soldier”, 75, 16);

game.setActionFor(“soldier”, “spawn”, defendLane);

Try pasting your code from the game (not just copied from here) using the </> button. Then people can see the formatting and help you. If you read the link, it tells you how to paste your code from the game and retain the formatting.

Also, are you getting an error message? What is happening when you run the code? Please provide some information and then people can assist you.

I think it may have something to do with your capitalization? Variable enemy is not supposed to be capitalized and neither is else, I believe.

This is just at first glance so I may be missing out on some details, and also, I am not fluent in JavaScript so some of my advice may be faulty.


#4

You are right, it is supposed to be lowercase.
