Enemy platform behavior - patroling & shooting

  • Hello,

    I have been looking around for answers to my problem and found clues, but nothing conclusive, so here it goes:

    My game is a platform game where you play an undertaker who has to bury the enemies as they shoot each other. So I want my enemy to patrol and shoot!

    Problem is, I managed to make them patrol back and forth using a text variable:

    But when I try to make them shoot, using an invisible sprite (detection, on my sheet) as a trigger, I think the variable that make them move isn't letting the whole shooting animation play. I only see the first frame.

    How can I tell the game that the cowboy has to stop walking and shoot instead?

    Many thanks in advance to whoever will take time for me!

  • you could try with something as simple as adding a condition to event 19 and 20

    CoBoI2 animation CBfire is not playing..

  • Yes, that is very simple and a good idea. It's gonna sound pretty dumb but i only have the "is playing" condition. how do I say not playing?

    right click the "is playing" and choose invert..

  • YES! Thanks that works. Now I have to make them walk again afterwards. If you have an idea go ahead I'm searching as i write.

  • Okay, I added to the overlaping detection condition a system wait of the time of the fire animation and played the idle animation so the condition for the character to move again be met.

    Tanks a lot for putting me on the right tracks. I'm going to do the bullet spawning now. (I don't know anything about it though )
