I have started to develop my own shoot-em-up style game in MX 2004 using AS2.0. You can view it here >
as it states in that thread I shall be attempting to write a developement diary as I progress. Right now however I have a slight problem...
Try shooting at the pink balls (they are representative of enemies BTW). Sometimes the bullets you fire will pass over the pink circles and not register a hit...I am using the hitTest (x:, y:, true) method for more precise hit testing...what could be going wrong here?
It happens the most when you fire at the top of a circle, the bullet definately touches the circle (you can see it overlap) but it just carries straight on to the edge of the screen...
Any advice welcome.
