How do I kill enemy only after item has been picked up

  • Hi I was wondering if anybody could help me with a game i'm currently developing. I need to find a way to kill an enemy only after item has been picked up. So say its a red coin and the character jumps up picks up the red coin then he is allowed to kill the red enemy characters.

    Any ideas??

  • Hello, I created a .capx file to try and describe you my way of doing it (Update your software to the lastest version)

    What you can do, you can give the enemy an instance vairable, let's call it 'coin', his value will be '0'.

    If the bullet is overlapping (or on collision) with the enemy, and the value of the coin is 0, nothing should happen

    But, if the coin value is '1' and the bullet is overlapping the enemy, destroy the enemy.

    Which means, when we collect the coin, we destroy the coin an change the value of the coin from 0 to 1.

    Here's the .capx, hope it helps.
