Fully commented source code/event sheet & sprites to create a space shooter game
  • Hey there,

    Maybe someone can help me with this. It has been wracking my brain for the last few hours.

    I am trying to figure out the best way of creating a weapon shop for my game.

    Basically what I was thinking of doing was setting temp variables each time a weapon is viewed on the store. Then when they buy the weapon and equip it those temp variables become the permanent variables for stats.

    This would be a pain though as I would have to set the variables for each and every weapon I plan to have. And I plan to have a lot. Instead I would like to just pull the instanced variables from the object they just clicked on and set them as the permanent variables.

    I could copy and paste into each weapon event the commands to set the temp variables but I would still need to go in to them all and set wep1.str to wep2.str and so on. Making it a long and arduous process.

    You can see here how I have laid out the events for the shop for two weapons using the method I have mentioned above using temporary variables.

    I would then use these saved variables on the buy button event to set the permanent variables if bought and equipped.

    It would be great if I could grab the item being called in the event initializer for e.g on touch basic_bow and use it in the actions associated with it such as this.something when an object is called in the action itself.
