PLATFORMER: Enemy control with platform behavior

  • Few days ago I made some examples that control the enemy with bullet behavior.

    Today I used the platform behavior that automaticaly controls the enemy with events to make an example.

    I learned that the main plus in using the platform behavior rather than bullet behavior is better control of a enemy with gravity who can move on solid objects and simulate movements like jump.

    Sudgestions and examples with other ideas for this topic are welcome!

    Example contains:

    -Basic description in eventsheet

    -Enemy with platform behavior is controled in eventsheet

    -Enemy being turned left and right by overlaping just one sprite

    -Enemy jump simulation to reach higher places

  • This is great. Thank you!

  • Thank you for share it, it will be useful

  • Just what I needed, thanks Miu3. :)

  • I'm having a bit of trouble with this, I want the object that the enemy hits to turn around ("item" in your example) to be solid but the enemy doesn't turn if it's solid,

    As i know, you cant really do collissions nor overlaps with solid objects. But you can place the sprite on the position where you want your character do the actions.

  • I've looked at several sample capxs and can't seem to get the behavior I want out of my enemy. I just want him/her/it to patrol back and forth in a particular area. I set up some sprites to act as collision points to make them turn, but it just doesn't seem to be doing what I want.

    Anyone? Thanks!

  • I cheated on my enemies in space fantasy, i had some walk back and forth along the floor in a space game, i just at start made them walk so far using move to, then started a timer at a certain time they turn, and so on.

    Basicaly It just loops.

    Heres a fixed version with some explanation after hours of testing

    My made examples are not perfect. They are just one of many ways how to make things but i hope this solves your problem

  • interesting stuff.thnx 4 sharing!

  • Thanks a lot, this will be very usefull <img src="smileys/smiley32.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    The enemy minion degree setting is acting up in this example.

    See the rotation after it touches the invisible containment object.

    Enemy is literally turning upside down.

  • How to fix the turning upside down?

  • How to fix the turning upside down?

    I solved using this. Don't know if it's the best solution, but it worked:

    Enemy.X > Item.X = Set Angle to 180 degrees

                       Set Flipped

    Enemy.X < Item.X = Set Angle to 0 degrees

                       Set Not Flipped

  • you can make just make a flip action... and ALSO make an unflip action... if you just want a left right thing its "Mirror" instead of flip.
