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.
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'?
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Not yet, I guess that's a logical addition to mouse & keyboard sometime soon as well
