Every time I hit forward, back, left, or right it doesn't do what i told it to (originally when i first made it) and the error message shows up. Any idea on how to fix this? this is with the 2nd attached file.

The first attached file has the message show up right when the game starts. i started to mess around with it to try to fix this problem. i spent over 6 hours working on this and when my teacher graded it, he failed me because of that error message. now i'm trying to fix it before its too late.
if anybody would be kind enough to tell me whats up with it and potentially help me fix it, that would be truly amazing. Thank you.

I had a quick look at the first attachment, and it had some methods that were unfinished. For example the swim method for the fishy object has options that have not been select (i.e. are null - hence the error message).
You will either need to finish writing these methods, or disable calls to these methods. I found 3 methods like this - there may be more.
