Post » Tue Jan 20, 2015 6:31 am

Okay so my game plan is to set 8 directions to my sprite/character on my MOBILE GAME. My problem here is I already set it to 8 directions but my character doesn't go the way I wanted it or shall I say my touch controls won't make it the way I wanted it to be. This is so easy when I tried to use mouse & keyboard as an input but i'm making a mobile game. Please help! Thank you.

What help do you need? You don't really say what the problem is.

Try posting a .capx or at least some screenshots with a clearer explanation of what your problem is.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

You need to create control sprites that, when touched, move your character. Use Simulate Control.

Okay here some screenshots. Please read the file comment of the pictures :)

So yeah, i'm making a mobile game. This is similar to an existing game already I just edited a bit of it and experimenting to make it possible in mobile.

So my problem is that I want my character to rotate 360 degrees since its in 8 directions but my control is for four directions only :lol: cause i don't know what controls to use. so it doesn't go the way I wanted it to be. So how is that possible or is it possible? Or what if I remove the walking controls, how is it possible for the character to follow the touch of the player. (Do you get me? :lol: So hard to explain)

My another problem is you can see on the screenshots the touch controls I used. But since my character goes around looking for enemies to shoot. My touch controls follow the background. I wanted it to STAY on the bottom. You can see that on the screenshot with the arrows. It should stay there. But it goes up when I go down :x

So yeah I NEED HELP on this. Thank you.
