New condition type - Problem and Possible solution

  • Hi! My name is Jeff.

    I have a problem and a possible solution.

    For make the move of the Sprite i used the platform, i turned off default control because i want to configure the controls using the Gamepad.

    So far so good, i use the directional gamepad "xbox Controller" and make the Jump press "A" button.

    But, i have 2 gamepads,and i need to make a multiplayer game. to make the control 2 control Sprite 2, I have to copy and paste all command made by gamepad1 and replace Sprite1 to Sprite2?

    This is my solution:

    Made in Photoshop for help.

    I put a platform behavior in the family, because all sprites will receive the platform comportment.

    Sprite1 is UID 0

    Sprite2 is UID 6

    I tested separately and it worked.

    It recognizes that I am focusing the action on a single object.

    Well. This would save me from getting copying and pasting all Gamepad1 commands

    And yet I could do the commands to 4 players with only one line of code.

    But is not possible

    This is my idea of creating a new condition type.

    Someone finds it useful?

    Someone knows how to solve the problem of the gamepad?

  • You don't need to create for every new player - new sprite and there is no need in family. That's i can say for sure.

    About gamepads. Well, i have none of that could support the plugin. So, sadly cannot test anything to help you

  • Thank you friend!

    I do not know the logic to create an event that will serve for each player.

    Any link which teaches me to create it?

  • This is perhaps will be a stupid question.

    But how did you make only one "or" in conditions?

  • This condition is not possible. I did it in Photoshop to illustrate the resolution of my problem.

    If it were possible to create a "or" anywhere condition would solve my problem.

    This example (or almost finished for someone game) probably will help to your project too.

  • You could do something like this to deal with multiple gamepads. Here, GamepadID is an instance variable (or could be a family instance variable in your case) used to identify which Sprite will be moved by each gamepad.

    Thank you friend, that your code has opened my mind ...

    In my code I still use the family with Platform Behavior.

    Magistross

    Your code works perfectly.

    The gamepad (0) Controls Player1, the gamepad (1) Controls Player2, is perfect.

    Now I will study what you did.

    Thank you very much!!

  • Just want to thank you. I am working on a multiplayer mode and this helped me a lot. So thank again i 've just drop event number by 8 to 10%.
