Ask a Question / draw circles from x y of actor to x y of mouse
« on: July 31, 2021, 12:53:40 am »

I've been trying to create a "bullet firing" behaviour to throw a ball. I want to use the position of the mouse to be used for the power and the angle between the actor and mouse to be the angle to throw the ball - I've read about LERP but am struggling to put together something that draws concentric circles from the starting position to the mouse position.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Ask a Question / Issues with mapping and lists
« on: June 19, 2021, 06:31:58 am »

I have been struggling a little with an issue with maps.

Fir the game I am making I have used a map to store 11 teams (from a list) and points from a list. It works. I have been able to sort the list according to the points total.

However, when I want to empty the list and repopulate with a new set of team names and new points I have found that sporadically it will only store 10 teams not 11.

I have tried using other lists to populate the map but come across the same issue. I have attached the output issues and what they look like.

Has anyone come across this issue before and how did they solve it? Any help would be great!



Ask a Question / Centre text based on position of an Actor?
« on: May 15, 2021, 06:42:21 am »

I'm trying to centre text based on the position of an actor but not quite getting it... I know how to centre text based on screen position but my head can't quite get round how to centre text based on the position of an actor on screen?  Here is an attempt to help clarify what I mean!

Ask a Question / Collision shape for a circle
« on: March 16, 2021, 08:27:49 am »
I've been working on a collision shape for a circle to create a rolling ball effect. For some reason the ball collision shape gives off the behaviour that it is not truly spherical and a little bit egg shaped. It behaves like a 99p football you would buy from the local garage. Is there a way of making the ball/circle roll better? Thanks in advance

Journals / Bad Soccer Manager - alternative soccer management game!
« on: March 16, 2021, 08:24:50 am »
Hi all,

About to put up a demo of a game I've been working on over the last couple of months - Escape the Drop.

You are a football manager. Your CV has magically emerged from the bottom of the pile of decent managers and made its way to a struggling team who need your own unique brand of creativity to help your new team "Escape the drop"
Bond with the team to build morale, build a relationship with the chairman, make sure the stadium is match day ready and hit the training pitch in order to progress through the game.  Can you make your way to the elite leagues as a relegation escapologist?

How to raise your profile
Keep an eye on the league table. You have a finite amount of games left of the season and your aim is to try to escape the relegation zone. Keep track of your progress by checking out your manager profile, look at the league table and see your upcoming fixture list.

End of season
When the season is over and you escape the drop expect to receive a job offer from a team higher up the English league system. Should you do well every season then before too long you will be a manager in the England's top division

Build Morale
Lots of minigames are hidden within the game that need to be completed. The more you complete the higher the morale. The higher the morale? The more attacking chances you earn on a match day. If your team love you then they will work like a dog to win at all costs!

Mini Games
Win a game...then jump in the bath with the boys to earn a morale boost
Golf day - get a hole in one and avoid hitting your dim witted defender who has wandered onto the course.
The chairman's cat - He hates it. Catch it and kick it out of his office before he slashes your transfer budget!
Clear the pitch of pigeons before they ruin your hallowed playing turf!
More to follow...

Here is a sample of some of the nonsense I have been putting together:

Will post up the game when the demo is ready!


So the football game I am making will have over 10 teams which have 10 different kits. Each kit will have 4 different animations for idle, run right, run left and kick r and kick l. I can cut this down by some teams having the same colour kits.
What would be the best way to check the name of the team against the colour of kit? Then in the game simulator I have written 5 different scenarios that the player has to face.
What would then be the best way to implement a check against a team name, look up the kit colour then use that actor as the main actor for the scene? I can write if statements for this but it seems to long! Would image instances or creating an actor as an attribute be a better solution? I thought I would seek advice before I lead myself down a blind alley!

Thanks in advance for any help
