Having problems with a game im developing using lingo (director ).
Was wondering if anyone here can help me out with a problem I'm having. I can't seem to get the main character to walk around the map properly. It's similar to monkey island and full throttle where the character only walks left or right (most of the time).

In theory i think i know how it works but cant do it :-

If the transparent grid(a sprite) is on the left of the main character...
and it is clicked on...then the main character should flipH (assuming it is facing right)and
swap cast members with a film loop (walk animationg) and start moving left ( - 5 ) because the locH of grid is smaller than locH of main character position...
once it reaches the locH of the transparent grid....it will swap back into the still image and stay.

This is in the completely wrong forum, but it's not a problem with any MI games so I won't move it into 'Hints and Broken Things'. Instead I'll throw it into our general topic forum (named 'Delete Me!', but don't let the name throw you, 50% of our threads and posts stay :p kidding) so there's a chance of more people seeing it.

Why not try asking in, er, a lingo forum?

Have you tried getting the monkey to move with an artfully placed shotgun blast?
