Haha, glad it helped. Harry Thompson November 3, 2014 Hello Im trying to figure out how to make a melee attack for my character. Could you please do a tutorial on how to give your player a melee attack. Also in older games like River City Ransom, Streets of Rage, and Final Fight i notice that there is something that stops the character from moving past a specific line in the background do you have any idea on how i might accomplish these two things i would really like to know thank you very much. Link Yamato November 3, 2014 hey it really works i love you man thanx michaelarby November 3, 2014 Great tutorial man- love the simplicity. Just one issue I noticed- if your background is not tiled (eg i have a planetoid passing by in the background) AND if your character starts in the middle of the map, rather than at the left or right edge, the background will not appear on screen. This is simply rremedied however- change each line of code to something like this: background_x = view_xview/4 + 2000; or whatever extra value you need to bring it back on screen. VNRIVALED November 3, 2014 thank you, this is a good solution for what I’m working on! Digit11701121 November 3, 2014 Thanks a lot! Comments are closed.
