> I'm completely lost. The only thing I can see that even mentions 8DM is on the left panel but has nothing about controls other than one with a yes/no option and under events I open keyboard and have little luck after that... like I said. I'm a noob lol. Use to use Gamesalad.
Open up your event sheet tab and add event..
To be able to work with keyboard events you should first add a keyboard object to your project..
It might be of use if you don't know about event sheets and/or events to follow a few tutorials from the tutorial-section of this page to get the hang of things..
Yes i'd done that haha, but nothing else after selecting keyboard stands out.
I added a Keyboard. I know about event sheets system, characters, ticks and so on. Not perfect but I get the idea, same sorta system Gamesalad uses so I picked that up fairly quickly.
I will search for "This all could be found reading the manual entry for 8-Direction Behavior and its followup link Behavior Reference - Custom movement." Thanks everyone!
