    Default Error Explanation? :)

    Would someone explain to me what the error message at the bottom mean and suggest a way that I may be able to fix it please? Thank you in advanced :)

    It means that there is no Climber() constructor that takes four int parameters (which is what you are trying to call).

    The Climber() constructor that's visible takes a single int x, so you probably want this:

    Java Code:
            public StepClimber(int x) {
                    super(x);
            }

    If I want to change the Climber() constructor so it would take four int parameters, would I change it to this?

    Java Code:
       public Climber(int x, int y, int dir, int beep)
       {
          super(x, y, int, beep);
       }
    And thank you for the reply :D

    I don't know what you want Climber or StepClimber to do, so I have no way of knowing if that is what you want.

    Also, you don't necessarily need to change the existing constructor. You can add another constructor with the signature you want.
