How do I use random spawning

  • Hi, everybody

    I've been looking for a way to do a randomized spawning at the top of the layout, just outside the frame. Untill now I've found plenty of different tutorials and tips on how to do it, but I'm really not sure how to convert their example into my own situation as I'm noob at this.

    What i would like to happen is, the red sprite in the bottom of the layout should spawn randomly along the marked area above the layout, and go down onto the layout.

    So far the events I've got on the picture are what I would think worked but clearly it didn't.

    Also here is a link for the pictures and capx:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ew81qh5o8au9esu/AADZxu6JmdC6CtwFtEefda0fa?dl=0

  • Hi

    I have made a few changes to your project

    1. I recommend you to have an event sheet for every layout, except if you have an event sheet for global functions

    2. Be carefull with the existing objects in your layout (for example, you already have a red bullet on the screen, so that bullet will travel forever)

    3. Take a look about the https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/73/sup ... reen-sizes for more information about the ViewPort

  • Thanks a lot I'll take a look and see if it works

  • Hi once again

    Thanks a lot for the last help I used it and it seemed to work just fine.

    But now I have another problem. I would like the player to be able to choose between WASD and the arrow keys. Though it would seem that I can't get my initial idea to work as the simulate controle doesn't seem to work inside a group.

    Either that or I've fucked it somewhere else

    Hope you can help here's my dropbox link with the updated capx:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/h397cafmta5jdw3/AADEgoIbCh3pc65q-9KgcNXSa?dl=0

  • Hi,

    On "main menu" eventsheet:

    on check2 opacity = 100 --> set "greenthing" variable WASD to 100 instead of 1

    Works better

  • Did you figure it out?
