Images_right[self. current_image]) def coords(self): xy = self. video game. canvas. coords(self. picture) self. coordinates. x1 = xy[0] self. coordinates. y1 = xy[1] self. coordinates. x2 = xy[0] + 27 self. coordinates. y2 = xy[1] + 30 go back self. coordinates after we created the sport category in bankruptcy sixteen, one of many item variables used to be the canvas. At , we use the coords functionality of this canvas variable, with self. video game. canvas. coords, to come back the x and y positions of the present picture. This functionality makes use of the quantity kept within the item variable photo, the identifier for the picture drawn at the canvas. We shop the ensuing checklist within the variable xy, which now comprises values: the top-left x place saved because the x1 variable of coordinates at , and the top-left y place kept because the y1 variable of coordinates at. simply because the entire stick determine pictures we created are 27 pixels vast through 30 pixels excessive, we will be able to be sure what the x2 and y2 variables could be via including the width at and the peak at to the x and y numbers, respectively. ultimately, at the final line of the functionality, we go back the article variable coordinates. Making the Stick determine circulate the ultimate functionality of the StickFigureSprite category, circulation, is in control of truly relocating our video game personality round the reveal. It must also have the capacity to let us know while the nature has ran into anything. beginning the movement functionality Here’s the code for the 1st a part of the circulate function—this will cross after coords : def coords(self): xy = self. video game. canvas. coords(self. snapshot) self. coordinates. x1 = xy[0] self. coordinates. y1 = xy[1] self. coordinates. x2 = xy[0] + 27 self. coordinates. y2 = xy[1] + 30 go back self. coordinates def move(self): self. animate() if self. y < zero: self. jump_count += 1 if self. jump_count > 20: self. y = four if self. y > zero: self. jump_count -= 1 At , this a part of the functionality calls the animate functionality we created previous during this bankruptcy, which adjustments the presently displayed picture if useful. At , we see no matter if the worth of y is lower than zero. whether it is, we all know that the stick determine is leaping simply because a unfavorable worth will movement him up the reveal. (Remember that zero is on the best of the canvas, and the ground of the canvas is pixel place 500. ) At , we upload 1 to jump_count, and at , we are saying that if the price of jump_count reaches 20, we must always swap y to four to begin the stick determine falling back (). At , we see if the worth of y is bigger than zero (meaning the nature has to be falling), and whether it is, we subtract 1 from jump_count simply because as soon as we’ve counted as much as 20, we have to count number backtrack back. (Move your hand slowly up within the air whereas counting to twenty, then stream it go into reverse back whereas counting down from 20, and you’ll get a feeling of the way calculating the stick determine leaping up and down is meant to paintings. ) within the following few traces of the stream functionality, we name the coords functionality, which tells us the place our personality is at the reveal and shops its lead to the variable co. We then create the variables left, correct, most sensible, backside, and falling.
