How do I choose between 1 or 2 players

  • I've looked everywhere (at least i think i have) and all examples, tut's and posts show hot to switch between players or 2 players playing at the same time onscreen. How do i create the 1 or 2 player events?

    i,e: if i want to play alone, i choose 1 player. If i want to play with someone else (turn based) i choose 2 player, and if player 1 dies it will become player 2's turn?

    If anyone can point me to examples or help with this, greatly appreciated.

  • IT works like most things... you would need a set of variables to tell the game who's turn it is, etc.

    Global Variable - PlayerTurn = 1

    [PlayerTurn=1]

    [Press move right]

    ---- player 1 moves right

    [Player 1 dies]

    --- set PlayerTurn=2

    [PlayerTurn=2]

    [Press move right]

    ---- player 2 moves right

    [Player 2 dies]

    --- set PlayerTurn=1

    The same would be done for picking how many players you want;

    Global Variable - NumPlayers=0

    [Click button for one player]

    --- set NumPlayers=1

    [Click button for two player]

    --- set NumPlayers=2

    You would use your NumPlayers variable setting to help conditions with the first set of pseudo events I wrote up there^

    [Player 1 dies]

    [NumPlayers=2]

    --- set PlayerTurn=2

    [else]

    --- set PlayerTurn=1

    --- respawn player
