while True:
# If it’s the first 10 seconds, attack.
if hero.time < 10:
if enemy:
enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy
hero.attack(enemy)
pass
# Else, if it’s the first 35 seconds, collect coins.
elif hero.time < 35:
if coin:

the variables are supposed to be inside the while loop

No, not like that. Please read the directions. It’s very simple to do correctly. If you do it wrong, it looks like what you posted. If you do it correctly, it should look like this:

``````while True:
enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy()
coin = hero.findNearestItem()
# If it's the first 10 seconds, attack.
if hero.time < 10:
if enemy:
enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy
hero.attack(enemy)
pass
# Else, if it's the first 35 seconds, collect coins.
elif hero.time < 35:
if coin:
hero.moveXY(coin.pos.x, coin.pos.y)
pass
# After 35 seconds, attack again!
else:
if enemy:

hero.attack(enemy)
pass

so like this.

``````
while True:
enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy()
coin = hero.findNearestItem()
# If it's the first 10 seconds, attack.
if hero.time < 10:
if enemy:
enemy = hero.findNearestEnemy
hero.attack(enemy)
pass
# Else, if it's the first 35 seconds, collect coins.
elif hero.time < 35:
if coin:
hero.moveXY(coin.pos.x, coin.pos.y)
pass
# After 35 seconds, attack again!
else:
if enemy:

hero.attack(enemy)
pass

hero.findNearestEnemy needs “()” after it

It should be `if hero.time<=10`, the thing you did will make you attack enemy in the first 9 sec, but maybe the enemies are spawned so you have time to destroy them

@xantar it makes no difference in the current context.

“the thing you did will make you attack enemy in the first 9 sec”. That’s false.

If it’s 9.9999999seconds, then the hero will still attack the enemy.

It makes no difference since there is only one instant where hero.time = 10 on the dot, exactly.

So by writing hero.time < 10 you only lose (1 / framerate) seconds worth of attacking the enemy. (if framerate = 60, then you lose 0.01 seconds) However that doesn’t really matter since the hero can only attack 4 times every second with the fastest sword available.

btw the OP’s problem has already been solved.

I thought the framerate is 1, thx for telling me

You can check the framerate of a level by clicking on Systems then going down the list to the existence button. Press that to see the framerate.

The default framerate for levels is 30 FPS.
