separate the character in parts for complex anims

  • My character can shoot like a contra dude, in all directions.

    I'm programming the diagonal up shooting and just can't get the animation to trigger.

    The diagonal/up AIMING does work, but when I prezz Z (shooting key) the diagonal/up SHOOT anim doesn't show. it stays in the aiming thing.

    I couldn't figure out why this was happening so I moved on to the diagonal/down stuff. I programmed it and worked perectly, which is strange since both instances are triggered by the exact same stuff.

    What I did next was erase the diagonal/up stuff and copypaste the diag/down altering it to make it diag/up, so the events are exactly the same but adapted to each case. It still doesn't work.

    here is what I got:

    REMEMBER: the only thing not working here is "shoot UP DIAG"

  • OK, I solved it.

    I'll change the name of the topic and explain what I did cause maybe it's useful for someone else:

    I created another sprite representing the player shoting in all different directions. So, when Z is pressed this sprite becomes visible (it's idle animation has no frames) and the rest of the player becomes invisible. This was the control got more fluid since the main sprite is not bound to the shooting animations and can move freely.

  • thanks!!

  • well, if it's for creating sprites and exporting them to C2, I already do that with after effects and they come out perfectly.
