Game development stories & opinions
I would like to be able to retrieve the mouse X and Y position. You can get around it right now by creating an invisible object and give it the mouse movement.. but that seems quite unproffesional.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Use MouseX and MouseY
That's the one... in the system object. MouseX(1), MouseX("My layer") etc gets mouse X for a specified layer too.
Oh yes btw why its in the System Object and not in the Mouse & Keyboard object?
Good point, that's caught a few people out. Next build has shortcuts to MouseX and MouseY in the Mouse & Keyboard object's expressions.
Oh nice! I looked in the mouse/keyboard object for it. That's why i didn't find it.
Slightly off topic, but is there a way to change the X and Y of the mouse? As in, 'Set Mouse X' or 'Set Mouse Y'?
Not yet, I guess that's a logical addition to mouse & keyboard sometime soon as well
