Getting error when trying to run play.py, I redid the video three times now still getting it.

When trying to run play.py I get error: python: can't open file 'play.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory. Also have checked to make sure it is in the RPG folder

I am using python play.py I checked that the file was named play.py even copied file name to run it.

Is the RPG folder your current working folder? You might need to "cd RPG" first. Or, you might invoke it from the root folder using "python RPG/play.py".

If neither of these work, try making a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here. That will enable us to replicate your issue.

Thank you, I thought I was losing my mind. Can't believe I forgot to change the directory.

I had the same problem and this is what I typed. python rpg/play.py and it worked if. If you will notice in the video his work space had the rpg/: already added to it but mine didn't. just something to watch for in future videos. Silas
