Is a circular loading screen with code ready to use. No Animation.
  • Hello, i realized that when i get the X and Y of the mouse, it gives the point on the screen instead of the points in the game.

    So i want to get the X and Y of an object by its points on the screen, is it possible?

    The reason is:

    I am trying to make an auto-target, so when i press the button X, the mouse cursor go to a target.

    I can�t make that by picking the X and Y of an object because the are different types of valors.

  • The built in expressions MouseX and MouseY give coordinates in the game.

    You can't set the position of the mouse, if that's what you mean. The mouse sets the position of the mouse.

    But in the actions on events sheet there?s a command to "Set mouse X" and "Set mouse Y" in the "MouseKeyboard" object Oo

  • Whaaaa...

    I have never noticed that action. Very strange! I learned something new today.

    Anyway, it appears that it sets the coordinates according to your desktop and not according to your the game window. So I don't know of a really good method for using that the way you need it.

  • You can use the Window object to get the position of the window and position the mouse accordingly.

    Example

    This positions the mouse to a randomly picked box. You'll probably have to add some things to account for screen scrolling -- if you need it -- but it shouldn't be to difficult.

  • Oh, thanks linkman, but i test on my project and it�s didn�t work well...

    What�s the difference between getting the ClientX and X of the window?

    Do you think there�s a different way to make that?

  • ClientX returns the position of your game frame relative to the screen while the X position of the window is the position of the window from the top left including the title bar and border.

    I suggest that you post a CAP file that we can take a look out so we can help with your problem.
