my current code for it: this should add a text (png) saying you lose, and remove the character, but it does not seem to work public void outOfWorld() { if (getY() >= 1600) { getWorld().addObject (new YouLose(), 800,300); getWorld().removeObject(this); Greenfoot.stop(); } }

Maybe you meant:
if (getX() >= 1600)

no, it is a horizontal game, where the backgroudn scroll behind the character, and the character is supposed to 'die' after it gets out oif the screen (too low) but the game does not pop up the losign scren, nor remove the character nor stop the game

Then maybe it should be:
if (getY() >= 599)
599 is the lowest y-coordinate in a world of height 600.

currently usign the follwoing code public void outOfWorld() { if (getY() >= 999) { getWorld().addObject (new YouLose(), 800,300); getWorld().removeObject(this); Greenfoot.stop(); } } in a world of 1000px high, and it still malfunctions

Is the outOfWorld method being called from the act method?
