hey, i already posted about this in the game development forum but it doesnt seem like anyone reads that part of the forum.

but basicly what im trying to do is make it so when i click a sprite it goes into a state of "activated" and while in this state if the user gets certaint amount of pixels away it will throw sprite off in that direction.

the problem is that when i run my game and click the sprite it freezes my mouse(sprite) inside the sprite and does nothing. heres my code...

//inside main class
//on collision between mouse sprite and other sprite

//inside the sprite class (thing i want to click)

it doesnt seem to ever reach into the if(!ZenGame.leftClick){

ok ive come to the conclusion that whats happening is that when i move my mouse away from the sprite there is no longer a collision so it cant run the if(!leftClick). does anyone have any ideas to how i might implement this to get the desired effect?
