reverse player direction;GameMak er May. 4th, 2012 @ 06:17 PM Reply

So, ive been farting around with Game-Maker 8 and i can't figure out how to cleanly turn a player around. Like a left facing player does all of his actions to the left and if that player reverses direction, all actions would be to the right. So far i've just been creating 2 sets of instances for every little detail but i feel like there is a much simpler way. While my way gets the job done, the instances aren't lined up exactly so each action makes them teleport slightly in place.

Any help would be EXTREMELY beneficial as my current project is for a class assignment.

P.S. Im starting to get the hang of GM8 but if you have any tips, pointers, or otherwise helpful info, Dont be afraid to put it out there ;)

be more specific. I assume you're making a platformer but I'm not sure.
