  • note i have a working game already i got that logic cover i find a word tap each letter if word found it cross out good <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile"> but not professional i want when swipe out draw line same time on match word if found or uid or var.

    what i am trying to do over three weeks now IS TO instead of tap on each letter i swipe my finger over each letter while tracing a line over it to mark the word which will make the game look and feel more professional

    like in the video on youth watch from 0.40 second

  • R0J0hound did a working example like this a long time ago. Will take a bit of searching for but it should still be around here.

  • Thanks zenox98

    I'm not surprised at all


    I still can't find the R0J0hound example...

    is it important to work-without families-and update on touching different instances...

    is not hard to set straight ahead action(witout update) touch first..then second..set angle..etc..

    hothead any progress?

  • system / on start of layout / stringer / Destroy

    touch / on any touch start / system / create object stringer on layer 0 at (touch.x,touch.y)

    touch / is in touch / stringer / set angle toward (touch.x,touch.y)

    stringer / set width to distance (self.x,self.y,touch.x,touch.y)

    how to make it set over the word note if you touch again it join instead of making a new line

    can use the following the destory

    touch / on any touch end / stringer / destroy


  • korbaach

    The Rojo example is HERE.

    Unfortunately, it isn't touch friendly, but could probably be converted.

    Might be of use to someone as an example of the 'Word Search' genre.

  • Good start?

  • zenox98 i already convert rojohound one to touch a few weeks ago lol

    thanks LittleStain

    korbaach is the king of array lol

  • Good start?

    That's it LittleStain ..clean and simple..

    So what is next in line?..Word Search Generator?

    just to pull random words wrom text file and gererate grid with words...

  • lol

  • ok..Word Search Generator..beginning

    for now..pulls random words from "ArrayAllWords" to "ArrayChosenWords"..sorts them descending by length..

    then....starting with the longest word puts them in a grid ("ArrayLetters")

    ..of course..first needs to find starting cell and check is word fits there in any direction ..

    (for now only "forward","back",up",down")

    so..when you replace empty cells with random letter..looks like this


    added "forwardDown"(startX+loopindex;startY+loopindex)

    if i optimize this events little may be space for "forwardUp"(startX+loopindex;startY-loopindex),"backDown"(startX-loopindex;startY+loopindex) and "backUP"(startX-loopindex;startY-loopindex)
