    i did a code and it worked fine, the event was "f5 press" and then i switched it to created (Im really noob)
    and this is my code

    (the only thing i added was if keyboard_check_direct(vkf5)
    and no errers when starting

    if keyboard_check_direct(vk_f5)
    if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_0{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_1}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_1{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_2}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_2{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_3}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_3{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_4}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_4{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_5}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_5{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_6}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_6{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_7}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_7{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_8}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_8{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_9}

    else if obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_9{
    obj_sr1.sprite_index = spr_0;

    if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_0{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_1}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_1{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_2}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_2{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_3}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_3{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_4}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_4{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_5}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_5{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_6}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_6{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_7}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_7{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_8}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_8{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_9}

    else if obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_9{
    obj_sr2.sprite_index = spr_0}}

    I'm not sure what the difference is between keyboard_check and keyboard_check_direct, but I think the function you are looking for is keyboard_check_pressed

    I'm guessing that by your code "not working" that the character is quickly cycling through its sprites. The modified code will change the sprite only when you press the key.

    Do you mean that you changed the event from being the F5 pressed event to the Create event? If so, then you will never be able to get this to work as it will only run this code when the object gets created once, and you aren't going to be able to hit F5 at the exact same time that the object is created. If you did put this in the Create event then you need to move it to the Step event instead so that it will be called every step of the event.
    Foxis and SnotWaffle Studios like this.

    Why fix what wasn't broken to start with? Explain when it has become a sin to use the built-in keyboard events. This "I'm a big boy and I won't use built-in features" movement is getting out of hand in GM user circles.

    on another thread i posted i asked how to get key inputs when the program is minimized, and i got an answer to use that. This "I'm a necessery person and i will not comment a necessery comment, i will just fill it with ****" is getting out of hand.
    but for real, dont assume things when you dont know anything, grow up.

    thanks i switched it to step.

    In this case based on his other thread Foxis wants to detect keys when the window is not in focus, so events don't suffice.
