  • I've implemented a mechanic where the player can change the firing mode of the machine gun from semi-automatic to automatic. If you press Z, it changes to automatic, and if you press X, it changes back to semi-automatic. I can't figure out how to get that same function with just the Z key (press once for auto, press again for semi).

    Simply run into the gun to pick it up, the .capx is commented.


  • Its very simple, but first I see that it changes the variable FireMode, but no where in your event sheet can I see the firemode variable doing any thing, how is it changing between auto and semi?

  • Nevermind I found it, I will now organize your event sheet and add what you wanted.

  • Sorry I was unable to create the effect you wish

    But I felt bad saying that without a result

    So I had some things to your game

    1) It now costs 150 to spawn in a block

    2) You can rotate the block by Pressing R well placing it

    3) There is no cash variable

    4) When killing a zombie it will say +1 in orange to represent adding to the score.

    Sorry that I wasn't able to fix your main problem!

    New Version:

    If you want any other minor changes, just let me know! (I have to get offline now but send me a message)

  • There is now a cash variable* not no variable

  • The +1 effect is created by bullet, rotating the bullets angle to 0 so zombie doesnt effect it, then setting angle of motion to -90 without setting angle. Speed 10, after 2 seconds of being alive it dissapears.

    Wow thank you so much, I was trying to figure out how to rotate the blocks! The floating numbers from the zombies are really awesome as well! The mechanic I have will work fine, thanks for trying. If I figure it out I'll be sure to tell you.

  • Fixed!

    Instead of SETTING the value FireMode to 1 on Z being pressed I changed it to ADD 1. And added a new event that once Firemod is grater than 1, sets it to 0. So now you can change firing modes with the same key.

    Any chance we could work together on this project? I have some great ideas for a wave system & More!

  • You can also toggle by using this:

    Set firemode -> 1-Firemode
