Another movement question

  • I have asked a similiar question before but now i ask it whit more clearity. I want an enemy to move to the left when it is a certain distance from the rigth side of the player. Then it is going to pass the player, keep moving left. When it is a certain distance away from the left side of the player it is going to switch to moving rigth. Then it is going to pass the player and repeat the process so it basically follows the player. I tried making this work by doing this.

    Enemy-Event-Is whitin angle

    Whitin: 180

    Angle: 0

    Enemy-Sub event-Compare X

    Player.X-1500

    Enemy-Action-Set value

    Action

    "left"

    Enemy-Event-Compare instance variable

    Action

    Equals to

    "left"

    Enemy-Action

    Simulate control pressing left

    Enemy-Event-Is whitin angle

  • add a variable to the enemy and call it direction and set it to 1.

    Enemy: x < player.x-100

    --- enemy: set dir to 1

    Enemy: x > player.x+100

    --- enemy: set dir to -1

    enemy: dir = 1

    --- simulate right pressed

    else

    --- simulate left pressed
