Hello,

 

I'm using Adobe Animate 2018 to make a small platformer game to keep myself entertained when I'm bored.

 

Everything was alright, until I tried to add new levels. Whenever I run my game, it says this:

1087: Syntax error: Extra characters found after end of program.

 

It shows the error in another location, but here's the whole code including the problem area:

 

stage.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_DOWN, keyDownHandler);
stage.addEventListener(KeyboardEvent.KEY_UP, keyUpHandler);

if(e.keyCode == Keyboard.DOWN) ; {
downPressed = true;
if(doorOpen && player.hitTestObject(back.other.lockedDoor)){
nextLevel();
}
}

if(e.keyCode == Keyboard.RIGHT){
rightPressed = true;
}

if(e.keyCode == Keyboard.UP){
upPressed = true;
}

if(e.keyCode == Keyboard.DOWN){
downPressed = true;
}
}

Hi.

 

It's probably because you have an extra semicolon in this if statement:

if(e.keyCode == Keyboard.DOWN) ; {

 

Just remove it and the error may go away.

 

Regards,

JC

Actually, you also have an extra curly brace in the end. If you remove it you should be good to go.
