    Smile Creating a game

    I have written the majority of the game - just having huge problems with the enemies movements.


    Lets say i have two circles at different positions on the screen, and I want them to move in the yaxis between two points (at the same time (they have different x coordinates)) I want this to happen automatically without any keys being pressed.
    I have a stick man whos position can change via keyboard inputs on the x axis as well as being able to jump so I think i need to use kbhit != 0 but I keep trying code without any sucess, an example of how to do this would be really helpful.

    This rather depends on how your main loop is running. If you have blocking input, then naturally the program will block there waiting for input. If you are using a more normal main loop where you process input via messages, then you can move the enemies as part of that main loop.
