R0j0, you're beautiful for this. i've hit a speedbump though. mine spawns dots intermittently, making an effect almost like an on off toggle for the spawn, always evenly spaced, so its odd. however, it could just be my pc, so i'll send a test run through to the arcade and run it through a virtual machine. however, i see that in this you set oldx and oldy every tick, but then never call on them. ive tried adjusting the origin point to the left as well as spawning on both the old and current x,y and it still seems very spotty. i've copied everything above except the dot1 dot2, as those seemingly just change the current position of 'dot1' and 'dot2' rather than spawning them, so every click it would move, unless im wrong there? idk, if you have a moment, help me out lol. thanks ahead of time.
