HOW.......

Do I have a few random fireballs starting from the right of my screen wiz across my platform at random heights, maybe hitting my player on his platform from time to time.

Many Thanks

You want to spawn fireballs from right side of the screen at random height position? Is that what you trying to do?

I'm doing this tutorial now:

I'm at the part where it talks about spawning monsters etc. I think it might be helpful with what you need. instead of monsters, you can spawn the fireballs.

Thanks Ghengis,

As you suggested, this is the code that worked for me.

LASERBALL IS A SPRITE

System | on start of layout | LASERBALL | set angle to 360dg

LASERBALL | is outside layout | LASERBALL set angle toward ( player.X, player.Y)

System every 8 secs | System | create object LASERBALL on layer | at (1500,(Random(1024)))

Cheers

I did the same technique except I placed my event from a button click. The beginner tutorial is a must read. It was really helpful.
