That bouncing bullets example helped immensely, I've been trying to find a formula like that for ages!

Solid, efficient, informative.

Sketchy helped me out with a 360-degree engine a couple years ago, and it has been extremely helpful. Some of the most popular game types can be put together, thanks to your help! This download is a great resource!

Excellent! This will help me greatly with my platform shooting game. You're always incredible at doing these kind of tutorials.

): Hey sketchy this may be asking a bit much but is there any way you could make this again but use no extentions for us TGF2 users? ):
Posted by Sketchy 20th August, 2010

I don't have TGF2, so I'm not totally sure what the limitations are (does TGF2 open .mfa files?)

It looks from the Clickteam site, like the only extension I used that isn't compatible with TGF2, was the background system box (and that was purely decorative). I've replaced it with string objects, so hopefully it will be okay now...

Please let me know if it works, and if not, what error messages do you get?

Uses only Adv Dir Object, it's possible for it to use no extensions (however it's faster with ADO).

It contains tutorial, movements and shooting galleries. Includes:
* Mouse Aiming,
* Spread Shots & Bouncing Bullets,
* Variable Penetration & Accuracy,
* Wind.

However, it's in Polish, so yeah

Looks good, but sadly I tried opening it and it crashes every time. I can look at the events but not run the app. Think you have some HWA stuff in there that is stopping me. HWA won't install on my comp

I kind of wish it was combined into one whole engine, because I'm having trouble fixing the bugs when I try to put 'em together. Even so, bravo on this thing, man. It's brilliant.

On a different note: Is this thing open source? Because I have a few ideas in mind for it...
Posted by LoosedHyperion 14th October, 2010

Yep, it's ATan2 stopping me. I can't update to the latest build due to a error on my computer. Won't let me install updates and such. Have no idea why though. And thanks, it would probably work with ADO.
