So i am working on a Side Shooting Game and had a good weapon select system in place (When my character was a Yellow Box :D
Now ive started to create him and my game has it so pressing 1 or 2 changes the weapons (Deletes the weapon when swapping and creates the new one)
So now i have to worry about the Sprite being a person with Arms, i cant create guns under the Right Arm anymore, It goes over top of the sprite using that system.
So should i possibly create the Right Arm as a seperate sprite and pin it to my player sprite always on top and use the same system, Or create animations for every single gun and do it that way, So i can layer all the guns in my graphics program?
Hopefully this makes sense...would love to know any Side Shooter Tips you have :)
