General / Sprites inside a Class
« on: April 11, 2016, 03:48:55 pm »
hi, i have created a class called "Player"

in its header
#ifndef PLAYER_H
#define PLAYER_H
#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
#include <SFML/Window.hpp>
#include <SFML/System.hpp>

using namespace std;

class Player
 sf::Sprite sprite(){
         sf::Texture texture;
        sf::Sprite playersprite;
        return playersprite;        

its cpp file

#include "Player.h"


what i am trying to do is to create an object from this class from another cpp file called

#include "NewMap.h"
#include "Player.h"
#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
#include <SFML/System.hpp>
#include <SFML/Window.hpp>
int mapPlayers()
    sf::RenderWindow map1(sf::VideoMode(1180, 600), "GUNSHIP", sf::Style::None);
            sf::Font font;
            if (!font.loadFromFile("emulogic.ttf"))
            return EXIT_FAILURE;

    sf::Text gametitle("GUNSHIP", font, 54);

 Player p1;                //created an object p1 from the class player


            map1.draw(p1.sprite());     //i want to draw the sprite of the object P1 from the class Player
    return 0;

in the main.cpp
#include "NewMap.h"
return 0;

my code does not have throw an error but it crashes everytime i execute it.

General / sf::Time and sf::Clock
« on: March 28, 2016, 08:10:27 am »
Hello everyone, i am trying to display a window for 3 seconds,after that it closes. yet why does the window displays on random amount of time. it does not display the way i wanted to. Can anyone please enlighten me of my rather stup!D error.  it does display the window but not exactly 3 seconds. sometimes it jumps to 3.xx to greater than 3 seconds. can somebody enlighten me with this please?

sf::Clock clock;
            sf::Time limit = sf::milliseconds(3000);
            sf:: Time elapsed;

...end loop...

I've been reading about this for 4 hours both docs and threads here but I was not able to make this work properly . i am posting this as new topic again because the threads i went to i guess are dead. I just simply want to ask max of 8 character input and delete characters when backspace is pressed. somehow i got it working but:

  • it deletes the last character, but it replaces it with the backspace character value " ".
question is: what should i do so that the backspace character value is not inserted on the string?

here is my code:

 if (event.type == sf::Event::TextEntered)
                                if((event.text.unicode < 128)&& playerInput.getSize()< 8 )
                                    {  playerInput.insert(playerInput.getSize(), event.text.unicode);
                    if(event.type == sf::Event::KeyPressed)
                                        if(event.key.code == sf::Keyboard::BackSpace)
