thewizardducking Part 3 of the Wizard has just been posted to This part in the Wizard series covering sprite movement and actions shows how to add the ability for your Wizard sprite to "duck". This introduces you to the concepts of using a sprite sheet and learning to change "frames" for your sprite in game.

I'm making a serious effort to deliver the re-write of the original Wizard code in smaller, cleaner and more digestible chunks. While the original tutorial "worked", I knew the code wasn't as clean as it could be and I felt like I was throwing too much at you at once. Let me know if you think if it's improvement this time around. I'd be curious to hear from those of you who went through the tutorial before to check it out again now to see what you think.

Check out The Wizard: Part 3 - Making A Sprite Duck and let me know what you think. I always enjoy reading the comments and emails that I get.

For some reason, when I duck, the picture disappears from the content pane.

Found the problem. I thought overidding the file in the source folder, the file in the Content will be overridden as well but it was actually not. ^^

LOVE your tutorials George. Simply the most comprehensive and newbie-friendly out there.

Would you consider making a tut for walking, jumping animations and the such? If it's not too much asking that is.

Thank you so much for these tutorials! They are so well explained - it's a pleasure to read!
I'm following the tutorial closely but I'm using some different sprites which should - when walking - change between two sprites/pictures. I have them in my sprite sheet and I am able to change between the sprites. But how would you manage the time between switching? Somekind of timer? Or would you do a check on something?

If anyone else has a suggesting, feel free to comment!

Thank you for your time! :)
