View Full Version : Game

04-23-2002, 02:44 AM
I'm working on this really cheesey game in flash. Just something I want to get going in order to later turn into something more interesting and fun. It's basically an archer who shoots at an object. My only problem is that I can't get the code right so that when the arrow hits the object it detects a collision. I've tried many things and none of it has worked and now basically I have a mess. I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to take a look at it for me (I'll send the .fla). I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.

You can either reply here or send me an email:

you have the possibility to either post your fla or post the code you have sofar. that way everybody can profit of your learning process...

Sorry, I didn't know you could do that. Here it is.

hmm. your zip seems to empty pls. note that there's a file size limitation of 2 mb if i'm right... so slim your fla.

This shouldn't even be close to 2mb. 40k max I would say.
Let me try again, maybe I messed up before.

possible solution:

push the arrow mc's in an array and execute on the head mc onEnterFrame a comparison of _x and _y with the array of arrows.

don't forget to remove the arrows from the array (and the stage!) when they exit screen.

did that help?

Everything you said makes sense and sounds like a good idea. However I think that, being new to Actionscript, I'm messing something up. You can see in the posted fla that I've traced the arrow and it doesn't remove even though I try to do it with removeMovieClip(). I guess my main problem is the colision detection. Maybe could you send me a revised fla with what you're talking about? I appreciate all your help, thank you.

Hey, that's no problem. You've already done so much that you didn't have to. And like I said this is kind of a trial run with actionscript I'm in no hurry with it.... just wish I could get the darn thing to work hehe.

I've been away for a while and now I'm back. Just wondering if anyone has had the chance to look this over and if there are any more ideas? Thanks.
