Hello,

Thanx for the tutorial!

I was wondering if you know how to make the bullets to target your main actor?I've looked at some other peoples projects (GEForever), but am having trouble deciphering their methods and also being inexperienced with GE. Any pointers on how to implement an aimed bullet?

Cheers,
Felix

bullet->create actor->script editor
Code: Select all
angle=direction(x,y,player.x,player.y);//change player to the name of your main actor
directional_velocity=5;//5 is the speed of the bullet
Working on a probably too ambitious project! Wild-west-adventure-RPG-shooter-thing.

Just add gravity to it;
Bomb -> Draw actor -> Script Editor
Code: Select all
yvelocity++;

Hey! i have a few questions concerning the shooting part of the game...
I am first wondering how can i make an ennemy shoot a bomb in an arc-like angle (first going up and left, let's say, and then slowly going down...) i tried your tip of adding gravity to it but it'd only work combined with an xvelocity code since the yvelocity is set for a gravity response... oh and i have trouble making the bullets hit the floor and explode :?
any answers would really help!!
And then,
I was wondering: how can i make my actor shoot left (when faccing left) or right (when facing right)...

Thanks for the help!!

Set its xvelocity to whatever value, and set its yvelocity to some negative value. In the bullet's draw actor, increase yvelocity.

For this you need to have a variable to tell which direction your actor is facing. I'm going to call it dir. On the actor's move right event, set dir equal to zero. On the actor's move right, set dir equal to one. Now in the bullet's create actor event you can do this.
Code: Select all
if(dir==0) // player was facing right
{
    xvelocity = 10; // move right
}
else // player was facing left
{
    xvelocity = -10; // move left
}
