Hi @mepis! I liked what you had so far but, as eliasfrost said, the 8-direction movement threw me off.
For the gamepad, I was recently given a solution to get the actual angle of the thumbstick. I used the expression for rotation, but it should work for moving at a specific angle too.
All props go to linkman2004 who came up with it.
Code: Select all
angle(0, 0, Gamepad.Axis(0, 0), Gamepad.Axis(0, 1))

That will grab the current angle of the stick, so maybe it'll work better than using 8-direction.
I hope that helps! :)

@ryanrybot Thanks for the suggestion. I'll play around with it and try it. The deadspot zone for the 8 way movement can be adjusted too to eliminate that floatiness.

It's a double edged sword. The 8 way movement makes creating multiple control schemes easy and the game 'feels' the same switching back and forth. But better granular control is always a plus to. Either way, I'll have to play with it and see. Maybe I'll have to make another 2 hour game demo and try the controls your way and see how it feels.
