Thanks ^^. Oh, I also improved it this morning. Here's the new one:
Code: Select all
void viewfollow(int sensitivity, int xoffset, int yoffset)
{
    view.x += ((x + xoffset) - (view.x + view.width/2 ))/sensitivity;
    view.y += ((y + yoffset) - (view.y + view.height/2))/sensitivity;
}
Now you can have an offset =D

How about this:
Code: Select all
    angle=direction(x+view.width/2,y+view.height/2,Follower.x,Follower.y);
    directional_velocity=distance(x+view.width/2,y+view.height/2,Follower.x,Follower.y)/10;


This will make it smooth, like in CaveStory, or some Action RPG's

Ummm... I guess you didn't realize it, but I built my function so that it would be smooth xD. The bigger sensitivity is, the smoother the camera changes :wink:

A nice pair of topic-killers..
These kinds of one-word messages from one user to other are really powerful in stopping the conversation. xD I guess you know what I mean :wink:

Hey SuperSonic, I see that you tried to make the typing of functions name easier and that's good.
But in my opinion it is also important to pay attention to how readable it is.
What I use is this:

myFunction

So that the name begins with little letter and every new word begins with capital letter. This way you can easily see what words there are in the name, compare:

setgrav AND setGrav

:D it's easier to understand the code when the capital letters "jump" to your eyes.
Having a temporary break of most GE related things. I'll be back.

Yeah, I like to use caps sometimes, but when I do, I also cap the first letter. Like this: void MyFunction();

I made another function. This one is for parallax scrolling :D
Code: Select all
void ParallaxScroll(float intensity)
{
    x += (2 * (-intensity + .5)) * (view.x - view.xprevious);
    y += (2 * (-intensity + .5)) * (view.y - view.yprevious);
}
All you have to do is put this in your actor's draw code. For intensity, use a number from 0 to 1. 0 for being completely in the background and 1 for being completely in front (0.5 for being at a standard distance of course =D).

I hope this helps someone :wink:

@Hblade: Would you mind putting my functions in your first post? That way, you could have people upload functions and share them here. I dunno. It's just an idea ^^

Good idea ^^ But I'm a tad confused about what you mean, you mean just slam this into the first post of this topic? ^^ SURE :D

I love this code! I'm so gonna use it.
