'Wait' function for events

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Wed Jan 28, 2009 1:02 pm

I think that function 'Wait" known from rpg maker would be great addon for eavent sheet editor. In stead of plaing around with variables, and making special events for substracting/adding variable value every x ticks, we would get the same resoult by putting 'wait' betwen other functions. for example: object colision -> play animation 1, wait 5 sec/x.x ticks/till animation is over, play animation 2.
this would be extramly helpful with simple event behaviors.

i hope i've explained it clearly enough^^

Possibly, but it doesn't really fit with how events work. You can use the Function object to call actions after a delay.

There are "Every X milliseconds" and "Every X ticks" events. Also the function object can a function after a given delay.

edit: Rich is too quick for me. :P

Yeah you could set up timelines for intricate animation/game sequences and do that, also.
