# Trying to spawn in specific location

https://makecode.com/_fX92MXcPc133. My student has built his game so that it’s long and narrow; however, we can’t get it to spawn where he wants, which is at the bottom and towards the middle. Also, what’s the best way to find those coordinates? After putting the sprite where we want it, we look to the left of the dimensions of the tilemap, but those don’t seem to put it where we want.

When you are in the tile map, 0,0 is the top left corner I believe. The bottom left coordinate would be 0,77 and so in the middle would be 8,77 or something similar. No negatives. You can see the coordinate in the tilemap to the right of the tilemap dimensions.

Thanks for the reply. Yes, we have put the sprite on the tilemap where the student wants it to start and then checked the coordinates. We came up with x=8, y+78 and put those into

However, it still starts all the way to the left and towards the top.

in the scene category, use the “place ‘mysprite’ on top of col [] and row []” in the ‘on start’ block.
