is THE BEST platform tutorial I have ever found. It covers everything you need in a platform game, well exept for enemies coints and V-cam. But that you can find elsewere.(I hope elsewere is a word :D) anyway:
The look :D : 6/10
Overall : 9/10
BUT VOTED 5 ;D
Thanks! Traditional platform games are kind of boring for me, and I want to make something that really ROARS! So if I ever make a real game out of this it'll probably be an action RPG. Actually, the Umbrella Shop in Arr Pea Gee uses the same engine as this tutorial.
Overall nice tutorial, but you should really reconsider making the background a lighter shade of green. I could barely read the text.
Alright, thanks! It was easy for me, maybe some people have low contrast monitors.
THIS WONT WORK!!!!! unless in the script when you say " put it to the right" I'm doing something wrong( I dont get it that much, i just put it beside the last thing of the last line is that wrong? )
I'm not sure I follow you. Are you even putting it on a Movie Clip or the frame? Which script? There should probably be an error if you're putting it on the wrong part. Based on what Flash tells you about those you should be able to fix it.
The tutorial is perfect. One thing for me is, I would like it so that when it hits a movieclip, if it is attacking when it hits it the movieclip gets deleted, and if the player isn't attacking then the player takes damage. With a health bar already in place, how would you achieve this?
Well I already explained the unloadMovie script. I have a tutorial called Real-Time Battles that explains health and that kind of stuff. As for only if the player isn't attacking, you could just use:
or something of the sort.
I can't get my wall so that when I hit it, it will vanish(unLoad movieclip). Everything else works though! :D
Your wall isn't supposed to vanish when you hit it. That makes no sense.
