How do I get total vertical distance and

  • Hi all,

    I tried to do some research before posting and running into a few issues.

    Issue 1:

    I'm trying to create a HUD in a vertical direction but the text is fixed in the one location then goes off the screen.

    I did try tweaking the parallax but no go

    Issue 2:

    I'm trying to get the total distance from Players starting point to either when they would die or reach the End point sprite. I did try the various forum post suggestions but most were for horizontal scrolling type games and I didnt really see any for vertical scrolling games.

    Any suggestions would appreciated

    ...first put your HUD text on the screen(dotted area)

    .....do you know how to save High score to Web storage?

  • Hi Korbaach,

    Aaaahhhh I see now about the HUD, makes sense doh!! My next step was working on the high score which I see you did an awesome job with as well as cleaning it up a bit, really appreciate it. I have a few good forum posts saved for the web storage I'm going to try and follow up on them. If i run into any issues I'll let you know.

    thanks again for the help saved me a few hours of head smashing the keyboard!!!

  • Hi Korbacch,

    I ran into a bit of an issue. I got the web storage set up but its not saving the high score only the score when I hit the ground. I have Top 10 scores set up but it only replaces #1

    Here's the CAPX so you can see where I went wrong.

  • I guess you've followed this tutorial.. https://www.scirra.com/tutorials/581/to ... ays?page=1

    first rename your "varDistance" in something like "YourCurrentHeight"

    ......rename your"High_Score" variable in something like "YourMaxHight"

    add new variable like in tutorial HighScore=0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0

    ..now you want to compare "YourMaxHight" with "HighScore"....

    ..and add new event sheet for your high score layout...

  • Hi Korbaach,

    Thanks!!
