Hello fellow developers,
Some of you may have seen me around the forums. I'm working on a Superhero game. I ran into a problem and could use some help.
Currently, the player uses the Platform Behavior when he is on the ground. When he flies, it switches to 8 Way Behavior. The problem I'm having is that if I'm flying East and then immediately fly to the West, the art just mirrors. What I would like to do is add an animation of the character changing direction.
First off, I don't know how to trigger that. Second, I need to do opposite angles (North to South, East to West, NorthWest to SouthEast, etc), so a simple "if player is mirrored and you press right arrow than play animation" might not work.
Any suggestions on how to do this would be greatly appreciated.
You can check out the current build of my game here to see the type of animation I'm going for: http://www.needyourdisease.com/p/superhero-game-current-build.html
Thank you for your time.
