This add on video will show you
how to add a second athlete sprite to your project
so you can play with your friends and neighbors.
For starters, to easily make another sprite
with all the same code as your current athlete,
duplicate the athlete sprite.
Right click it and click duplicate.
Next, adjust the new duplicate athlete slightly
to make it unique.
Start by changing the sprite's costume in the costumes tab.
Click this flip up, down button in the top right
to make the athlete face in the opposite direction.
To change some colors on the new athlete,
use the paint bucket tool.
Next, change the backdrop on the stage
from one player to two player.
Click the stage, then the backdrops tab,
and select the backdrop with both a blue and a red bar.
Drag the new athlete to the top of the stage
so that it's opposing the other player.
Okay, the last step
is to change the controls for the second player
so that it doesn't move with the same keys as the first one
and that two players can play at the same time.
Back in the scripts,
click the drop down in each sensing block
in the forever loop.
Select two different keyboard keys.
A and D are good choices
because they're on the other side of the keyboard.
Test out your new athlete by clicking the flag
and using the keys that you selected to move it around.
Does the ball bounce off the new sprite?
Does it move the right way?
Great, then you're done.
All right, here's the game plan.
Duplicate your athlete.
Change the new athlete's costume, orientation, and position,
then change the controls for this new athlete sprite.
