Ask a Question / Tower Targeting
« on: July 02, 2014, 07:09:41 pm »
Hey Guys, I have been pulling my hair out on this for a few hours and I cant seem to figure out how to pull this off,

I am building a tower defense game, with simple enemys walking left to right. Basically what I am trying to do is get the tower to target an enemy. So it was suggested to me to once the enemy enters a region to target it. THAT part is simple. Where it gets difficult for me to figure out is what happens when a second enemy enters, and shortly after that first enemy dies or leaves the region, how can I get it to basically go down a list of choosing chronologically the enemys to target when they enter. (The tower can only shoot 1 enemy at a time)

The idea would be 3 enemys could enter nearly at the same time, but the tower would target the one that first entered, and when that enemy dies, the second one that entered and then the 3rd and so on. My goal is to make it never ending and smooth

ANY help or links to tutorials, example games, anything would be a huge help. Hopefully I make sense, Thanks guys.

Ask a Question / velocity movement question
« on: June 18, 2014, 05:01:54 am »
Hey guys, I am tryung to simulate a movement youd see in league of legends or Runescape where your actor moves to the mouse press. To do this I take the atan2 of y:mouse press y - player y x: mouse press x - player x x180/2. I then set that as degrees. This works but the problem I am running into as the lovement can be weird... sometimes the actor curves to a point instead of a stright line, which as you can imagine would look weird I  rhe game. Does anyone know a fix to this? Is there another way of doing it? Thanks!

Ask a Question / Trig/ Circle Question
« on: June 09, 2014, 06:19:11 pm »
Hey Guys,  I have a trigonometry question

The game is setup around a circle, the player rotates around the circle, and the player can jump of the circle before landing back on it. The goal would be for the player to jump straight out, so what I would need to know is what degrees he would be jumping towards. Oblivious it is easy at the Axis points, 90, 360, 270, 0. But how would I mathematically find what degrees that character would be jumping towards somewhere in the middle? How would I do this with a formula
I am assuming I will use Atan2 or something similar for this I am just not entirely sure how to do it:(

I made a small diagram of what I am trying to explain if I was unclear, the arrow represents the circle shooting straight out...
Thanks so much guys
