:wacko: I’m bamboozled at the moment with one problem… I am trying to figure out how to randomly spawn 2d image enemies in Visual Basic. The only idea is having invisible enemies but even then it wont work as well as i would like as there is always going to be an enemy coming from “that” direction…

Any help would be much appreciated… Thanks, Kris

I’m guessing that you can get random coordinates ok, and place images there ok, but your problem is in putting it together as a game?

I personally don’t like enemies just randomly popping up. You could have the computer place them in a room before the user went to it prehaps, or have the computer randomly place them as long as they are not within 40px of the user.

the random co-ordinates are no problem its just the whole creation…
