slow motion during game play ?

Postby ZeldaFan » Mon Jul 13, 2015 4:58 am

the game is 30 fps.
I want to stay in 20fps for part of the game, and then return to 30.

it's possible?

I'm not sure exactly, however depending on the reason for the change, you could imitate a change of framerate by changing the movement. For example when you want it to be 20 fps, have a variable x be active spo that all other actors will seem to jump instead of move fluidly while x is active
Not sure exactly if this will achieve exactly what you want but hopefully does

You could just simulate the slowmo by manually adjusting speed during that segment

or write it so that everything refers to a global speed variable that you can adjust at any time.
But that would be a hassle because you would need to add a time variable like
to everything

I don't know, there are ways to do what you want, but I don't think you can adjust the fps mid game
manually adjusting speed for the segment would probably be the easiest way

I thought of an idea where you could intentionally cause slow down in the background by constantly cloning active actors for a brief moment. :)

:mrgreen: The funny thing is, Game Editor forums are like a ghost town most days lately, so they're kind of wasting their time with their spam to begin with, but yes, it's not good when they spam stuff probably having nothing to do with Game Editor without at least contributing to the forum as a member.
