# Is there something I'm missing?

Hello everyone, I am once again stuck on a coding challenge. According to the examples provided my code seems to do what is being asked, but I am still getting the problem wrong. Thanks in advance.

movement.py
```# EXAMPLES:
# move((1, 1, 10), (-1, 0)) => (0, 1, 10)
# move((0, 1, 10), (-1, 0)) => (0, 1, 5)
# move((0, 9, 5), (0, 1)) => (0, 9, 0)

def move(player, direction):
x, y, hp = player
x1,y1 = direction
if hp > 0:
x += x1
y += y1
if x == -1:
x = 0
hp -= 5

if y == -1:
y = 0
hp -= 5

if x == 10:
x = 9
hp -= 5

if y == 10:
y = 9
hp -= 5

return x, y, hp
```

Hi Sandy,

The question doesn't tell you that characters with hp at or below 0 are not allowed to move.

Cheers

Alex

Hey Alex, thank you for taking the time to look at my problem. I tried changing the first if statement to 'if hp >= 0' and even 'if True' but those still don't work, any suggestions?

Hi Sandy,

Try removing the `if hp ...` statement completely and then dedent all the rest of the the code that was inside that `if` block by four spaces. That's what I did after copying and pasting your code into the challenge and it passed.

Cheers

Alex

I tried doing exactly that but it keeps saying it's wrong, this is exactly what I have. Thank you again in advance.

def move(player, direction): x, y, hp = player x1,y1 = direction
x += x1 y += y1 if x == -1: x = 0 hp -= 5

```if y == -1:
y = 0
hp -= 5

if x == 10:
x = 9
hp -= 5

if y == 10:
y = 9
hp -= 5

return x, y, hp
```

Hi Sandy,

Can you edit your code example to show it properly formatted with markdown? That will help to reveal any subtle bugs, especially with regard to indentation. I can see one such bug in the portion of code that is in a code block:

• in your `x == 10` block your `x` assignment and `hp` augmented assignment have different indentation. This will cause Python to crash with an IndentationError.

Cheers

Alex

Whoops, sorry about that.

```# EXAMPLES:
# move((1, 1, 10), (-1, 0)) => (0, 1, 10)
# move((0, 1, 10), (-1, 0)) => (0, 1, 5)
# move((0, 9, 5), (0, 1)) => (0, 9, 0)

def move(player, direction):
x, y, hp = player
x1,y1 = direction
x += x1
y += y1
if x == -1:
x = 0
hp -= 5
if y == -1:
y = 0
hp -= 5
if x == 10:
x = 9
hp -= 5
if y == 10:
y = 9
hp -= 5

return x, y, hp
```

Hi Sandy,

You didn't mention if your code is now passing. I just copy-pasted on my end and it did pass the challenge.

Happy coding,

Cheers

Alex

I tried that same code yesterday and it didn't work, but I just copy and pasted what was seemingly the exact same code that I had in the workspace and now it's working, I don't know how, but I'll take it. Thanks for the help, Alex.
