Problem With Creating Smaller Asteroid Bullets

Hi,

I am making a classic Asteroids game remake.
I am at a point of blowing up larger asteroids and creating smaller ones.
Please look at this developer screenshot and tell me what is wrong:

The two smaller asteroids are created,
but their direction of movement is not random?
Hope you can help, thanks!

Is the speed correct ?

I can't see anything wrong with those events...

I remember having issues with a very similar procedure in my project. In the end I split it up into a main event and a sub-event:




The wait 0.1 seconds is there to allow the sub-events to run and use the asteroid as a spawner before its destroyed.

Looks like you only have random (360) did you try random (1,360) ?

Is it "angle of motion" or just the angle the asteroid is facing that should be set ?

Hi,

I've uploaded the project at the following URL address:
http://16bitsoft.com/V2/Files/RocksInSpace/Alpha3/RocksInSpace_Alpha3.capx
Can someone have a quick look
and tell my why the smaller asteroids
don't move in random directions?

Thanks!

Here is a fixed capx that gives random direction: http://lewispcservice.com/downloads/RocksInSpace_Alpha3-Fixed.capx

I changed your random motion lines to be set to random(360) for Angle:Set angle
