What do you call this: I have a man facing right. I have 8 way movement. When I press the right key to goes to the right. When I press the down key he goes down, but he rotate 90 deg to the right. So I need to change the photo of the man. I mad 4 photo of the man right, left, up and down. How do i change the photo of the man when i press the arrow key to the photo i want to be there? I don't know what you would call this for me to look up,
if you can point me to a tut or where it would be in the manual.
Thank you

Are you referring to rpg type movement?

If so, and even if not, the pinned 'How Do I FAQ' has lots of useful links to such things as animation and movement types.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Sprite actions -> Set animation

Just point it to your new animation, if all your images are in the same animations then

Sprite actions -> Set frame

All the tut. I found all had animation with it. All I want to do is when i press the right arrow the right facing spirit
is showing and when I press the down arrow the down facing id showing. That can;'t be that hard to do. I am sure it will not take 30 steps to do it.

create four animations each with 1 frame each for L,R,D,U

On left -> set animation to left animation
On Right -> set animation to right animation
..
..

OR

create one animation with 4 frames one for L,R,D,U

On left -> set frame to left frame
On Right -> set frame to right frame
..
..

look at sprite actions as I said before, change the frame, change the animation. or you can use the built in mirror if you want to change the direction horizontally
