Odd Scripting error.

I am making a kinda version of snake, but instead of growing longer I have the object move faster , so this is where the problem comes in, on the timeout i have it move the gui control based on the direction, but if the direction is going ether right or down it doesn't work , and I really cant find out why. Thanks in advance.

PHP Code:
function onPlayerTouchsme() {
  new 
GuiWindowCtrl"ron_game" ) {

Remember, Graal's directions use the values, 0, 1, 2, 3 and has built-in functions to make tasks working with them easy.

A good way to get the direction to move would have to be adding key checking in your Timeout loop like so.

PHP Code:
//#CLIENTSIDE
// Your GUI Code..

function onTimeout() {
  
// Loop through Arrow/Direction Keys
  
for (temp.0temp.4temp.i++) {
    
// Check if direction key is pressed
    
if (keydown(temp.i)) {
      
// Record the direction pressed and exit the loop.
      
this.direction temp.i;
      break;
    }
  }
  
// Move your control based on the direction vector, and multiply that by the speed.
  
ron_plr.+= vecx(this.direction) * this.speed;
  
ron_ply.+= vecy(this.direction) * this.speed;
  
// Other Code..
}

// Other Code.. 
Now to explain vecx, and vecy. The return -1, 0 or 1 depending on the direction passed to them..

PHP Code:
echo(vecx(0)); // would display 0
echo(vecx(1)); // would display -1
echo(vecx(2)); // would display 0
echo(vecx(3)); // would display 1 
The reason 0 and 2 when passed into vecx is because it basically simulates as if you were moving 1 space to the direction specified. So if you were moving straight up or down, only your Y axis value would change. Vice-versa for vecy.

Also another good habit to get into is only loop when you need to!

PHP Code:
function onTimeout() {
  if ( 
ron_game.visible != true ) {
     
this.gamestatus "off";
  }
  else if (
this.gamestatus == "on") {
    
this.speed = ( ( this.level .25 ) + .15 );
    
ron_game.text "Catch that Greasy Chicken!               Score : " this.score;
    
// Movement Stuff here
    // Other Game related code..
    // Continue Looping
    
setTimer0.05 );
  }

Following your code base, that above example would continue timing out every 0.05 seconds while the gamestatus was on.

Well, after your post i rescripted the timeout , which ur way also made it much more effiecient thank you, but it still does not move right or down ;/


PHP Code:
function onTimeout() {
  
this.speed = ( ( this.level .25 ) + .15 );

/*Checking for hitting of the dot.
  if ( ( (ron_plr.x - ron_dot.x) < 1 ) || ( (ron_plr.x + ron_dot.x) < 1 ) ) {
   if ( (ron_plr.x - ron_dot.x) < 1) || ( (ron_plr.x + ron_dot.x) < 1) ) ) {
   this.score += ( this.level * 2.5 );
   this.level += 1;
   ron_dot.x = int[random( 1 , 248 )];
   ron_dot.y = int[random( 1 , 190 )];
   }
  }
 */

  
ron_game.text "Catch that Greasy Chicken!               Score : " this.score;
  if ( 
ron_game.visible != true ) {
   
this.gamestatus "off";
   }

  if ( 
this.gamestatus == "on" ) {
   for (
temp.0temp.4temp.i++) {
    if (
keydown(temp.i)) {
     
this.direction temp.i;
     break;
    }
  }

  
ron_plr.+= vecx(this.direction) * this.speed;
  
ron_plr.+= vecy(this.direction) * this.speed;
  
ron_plr.dir this.direction;


  
setTimer0.05 );
 }

I just tested my examples and they worked fine, also remember you're working with pixels not Graal x, y, coordinates. So try increasing your speed above 1.

Try.. this.speed = this.lvl * 1;

That assumes that you're setting this.lvl to 1 though.

Also just learned that you should use keydownglobal() function instead of keydown()

Here is my example..

PHP Code:
//#CLIENTSIDE
function onCreated() {
  new 
GuiWindowCtrl("GameGUI") {
    
profile GuiBlueWindowProfile;
    
clientrelative true;
    
clientextent "320,240";

    
canmove true;
    
canresize false;
    
closequery false;
    
destroyonhide false;
    
text "Game - Use Arrow Keys to Move Button";
    
287;
    
241;

    new 
GuiButtonCtrl("GameGUI_Button") {
      
profile GuiBlueButtonProfile;
      
text "Exit";
      
width 80;
      
119;
      
108;
    }
  }
  
setTimer(0.05);
}

function 
GameGUI_Button.onAction() {
  
// Button "Fun Example" has been pressed
  
GameGUI.destroy();
}

function 
onTimeout() {
  if (
GameGUI.visible) {
    
this.speed 2;
    
// Loop through Arrow/Direction Keys
    
for (temp.0temp.4temp.i++) {
      
// Check if direction key is pressed
      
if (keydownglobal(temp.i)) {
        
// Record the direction pressed and exit the loop.
        
this.direction temp.i;
        
temp.pressed true;
        break;
      }
    }
    
// Check if a Direction key was pressed.
    
if (temp.pressed) {
      
// Move Button
      
GameGUI_Button.+= vecx(this.direction) * this.speed;
      
GameGUI_Button.+= vecy(this.direction) * this.speed;
    }
    
// Freezeplayer to prevent graal movement
    
freezeplayer(0.05);
    
// Continue game loop
    
setTimer(0.05);
  }

Ah thanks for all the help fowlplay, I found my script error, i was using this.level which is obviously a reserved variable so for my this.speed I was getting 0 so I was not moving those 2 directions :P, once again thanks alot man!.
