Saving a 'costume' between 2 layouts in a dress-up game

  • I have a 'closet' layout where you can 'dress up' a cactus that I want to bring to my other layout which is the 'shelf'/display layout where you can view your cacti. I'm not sure how I can bring my dressed up cactus from one layout, to my shelf/display layout?

    Also, should I be using an array or something to sort my closet items out? I only have a very general idea of what arrays are and have never used one, any help or

    direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much!!

  • When dressed is the cactus still one object? Is it a few sprites attached together?

    Yes, the cactus and clothes are separate objects. It's a few sprites attached together.

  • Create the costume and place it in the same spot as the head of the cactus.

    Let the first frame always be a BLANK IMAGE.

    Keep other costume styles in the next frames

    -Create a Global Variable for the hat frame

    -Every tick set the Hat animation frame to Global Variable Hat_Style. That way Hat_style = 0 is always blank.

    -Don't forget to stop hat animation at the start of a layout

  • You will need to have the cactus and clothing in all layout where it will be used if they are separate sprites.

    You can set them to be attached using a global variable that will pass information between layouts.
