Ask a Question / Incrimenting/Decrimenting...
« on: February 16, 2014, 04:12:11 pm »
Hey Everyone.. I have.. i guess you could say a physics question..

I am trying to figure out How much to increment an angle by and what speed to use in order to rotate around a circle..

Like if I knew i wanted to have it go around a circle with a circumference of 500 pixels (Just throwing around values..) is there some sort of way I could figure out what to incriment by.. I just feel like i could sit here all night and try and find that perfect decimal value but i would never find it?

Any other advice.?

Chit-Chat / Legality cars
« on: December 27, 2013, 08:10:56 am »
My game has cars in it.. what do you think I am legally allowed to do. Could I include real life cars.

I was thinking if I wasn't allowed to include actual cars, I could take them and use the same body and just rebrand them, like take the BMW off and use some stupid new name for it. Thoughts? Just a bit paranoid I would make people angry

Ask a Question / Actor Turning
« on: December 15, 2013, 01:27:45 pm »
Does anyone know how, when using the Turn command.. to make an acotr turn a select amount of degrees, to make the actor rotate around the center point of the actor instead of from one of the corners?
Do i make sense? Almost so the actor spins like a wheel..

Ask a Question / Holding a weapon
« on: November 16, 2013, 04:50:14 pm »
I am working on a game, a platformer in particular in which the player object has the ability to hold and use different weapons. Because the weapon needs to have separate collision areas from the player object, the weapon needs to be a different actor

So i made a behaivor to essentially always have the weapon be set to a certain part of the actor. As the actor goes through animations... So does the Weapon.. I havent completely tested it.. but I have a feeling this will look glitchy/ slow down the fps.. and just all around look bad...

do you have any ideas? anything that could improve the quaility of the game?

HERE is a screenshot to the behaivor:

Ask a Question / Switch Animation after it plays through once

Ask a Question / Platformer? Weapon Mechanics
« on: November 06, 2013, 06:37:18 pm »
Is anyone here expierenced with Weapons in Platformers?

I have a Player and I have enemys. All the enemys are set to do is come after the player, as they hit the player they do damage. The player has a sword. The sword is its own seperate actor which I have a behivaor for which moves during animations to keep it in the players hand constantly.

However, the trick I need to do is figure out how I can make it so the enemy does not get hurt if the sword is not being used. I feel like there is a better way to do this whole process.. My idea was that each time the player swings the button to set a game attribute to true, and then if the attribute is true it will do damage.. I don't know.. this all seems so sketchy.. there has GOT to be a better way to do this.. any ideas?

Ask a Question / Issues with tiles
« on: October 19, 2013, 05:01:04 pm »

Look at that picture, has anyone ever had this kind of issue with tiles from a tileset. There is no specific settings that I am aware of that would cause it do this... Why do you think the tiles are doing this? the tileset I used was just a basic png file

Ask a Question / Collisions for each frame?
« on: October 12, 2013, 05:12:47 am »
Hey Everyone,

I am working on a game in which I have an actor with weapons. I need to edit the animation of the actor so that the collision box is constantly around the weapon. HOWEVER, When I go to edit it, it will only allow me to edit the first frame of the animation....... what should I do?!?
