Coding / GM7/8 Problem with surfaces and views
« on: March 19, 2020, 09:40:48 pm »
I have an object that is dealing with lighting effects. Basically it's creating a surface that covers the viewport, drawing a dark rectangle on it, and then essentially "poking out" holes by drawing circles and blending the colors together. At the moment Im trying to achieve the lantern effect. Everything seems to be working fine, except the surface wont follow the player object correctly. Either the dark rectangle is drawn over the viewport and the circle doesnt follow the player until youre close to the views x,y origin, OR the rectangle only draws at the rooms x,y origin not following the view but when you enter that area the circle follows you perfectly. I hope this makes sense. Heres the code.
Code: [Select]
surf = surface_create(302,243);
color = make_color_rgb(8,8,40);

draw_clear_alpha(c_black, 0);

Code: [Select]
if (surface_exists(surf)) {
    if global.item_obtained[0] = true {

    } else {

    surf = surface_create(302, 243);
    draw_clear_alpha(c_black, 0);
Code: [Select]
if (!surface_exists(surf)) {
    surf = surface_create(302, 243);
} else {
    if (view_current == 0){
        draw_surface(surf, 0, 0);
The changes happen when I change x,y position of draw_surface in the Draw event, either 0,0, or view_xview+0,view_yview+0.

Feedback / When did we get a Llama?
« on: October 01, 2014, 12:10:57 am »
So I just noticed the llama attacking phantom ganon in the header, at first I thought I had a smudge on my screen and thought "Why the hell wont that come off?".  XD

Graphics / Some NPC's
« on: July 26, 2014, 07:43:41 pm »
So I figured I'd post some npc's I've been working on for a project.

Everything revolves around the Link sprite, which was made by OSM. The teapot man was a collab between Sinkin and myself. Frog was editted from a sprite that I dont remember. C+C always welcome  :)

Entertainment / That legendary blade.... the Master Sword!!
« on: May 21, 2014, 10:14:57 pm »
So Q.K.s topic about his lens of truth project inspired me to post mine - the Master Sword. I"ve been working on this project for a little while now, maybe a month and a half  :-\ Finally have something to show! ha The blade is being made out of 80CRV is what I believe its called, very similar to 5160 spring steel. Its been cut out with an angle grinder and cut-off wheels. It still needs some clean ups on some edges and a little bit of tweaking at the tip, but I finally got it fully cut out today. Hilt will be made from cast aluminum. Will update as progress is made!

Coding / Trouble with lifting code :(
« on: August 03, 2013, 03:30:45 pm »
Hey everyone, having troubles with my lifting code. Im using GM 7 Pro. When the action buttun is pressed, the lift sprite wont animate until the arrow keys are pressed :huh:
Code: [Select]
var fholdd, fholdu, fholdl, fholdr, cc;

// Check keys
// Cancel opposing keys
if holdu && holdd {
if holdl && holdr {

// This is where you may want to add other conditionals which keep you from moving,
// such as if you are using an item, or you are in a menu.
// Just add the conditions to the end of this next "if" line.
// example:
// if (holdd ||holdu || holdl || holdr) && !usingshield {

if holdd ||holdu || holdl || holdr && global.menuon = false{
    // If you are holding any key, start moving.
    // Change Link's direction if you weren't already moving.
    if !moving {
        if holdd { dir="D" }
        else if holdu { dir="U" }
        if holdl { dir="L" }
        else if holdr { dir="R" }
    // Direction correction:
    // Get the correct sprite when you walk diagonally then release one arrow.
    if (holdd && !holdl && !holdr) { dir="D" }
    else if (holdu && !holdl && !holdr) { dir="U" }
    else if (holdl && !holdd && !holdu) { dir="L" }
    else if (holdr && !holdd && !holdu) { dir="R" }
    // Prevent direction glitches caused by inhuman keypress timing.
    if (holdd && holdl && dir!="D" && dir!="L") { dir="L" }
    else if (holdd && holdr && dir!="D" && dir!="R") { dir="R" }
    else if (holdu && holdl && dir!="U" && dir!="L") { dir="L" }
    else if (holdu && holdr && dir!="U" && dir!="R") { dir="R" }
// Stop moving if no key is held.
} else { moving=0 }

// If Link is attempting to move now,
if moving {
    // "charge up" the number of pixels to move during this step,
    // prepare movement variables,
    // and start doing the movement.

    while movestep>=1 {

        // Corner-cutting loop. This for-loop determines if Link is blocked by a solid,
        // but is close enough to its edge to cut around it.
        // If so, a "fake hold" variable is set, and the engine acts as if that arrow key is held.
        // Feel free to change the initial "cc" variable for corner sensitivity.
        // Between 4 and 8 is recommended - even less if your solids have curved masks. Use 0 for none.

        fholdd=0; fholdu=0; fholdl=0; fholdr=0;
        for (cc=6; cc>0; cc-=1) {
            if holdu {

                if !place_free(x,y-1) {
                    // ...but pressing left or right, release the "up" key.
                    if holdl || holdr { holdu=0 }
                    // ...but close to the left edge, and NOT holding left or right, and not fake-holding either, perform a fake left hold.
                    // And if you are only 1 pixel from the edge, also perform a fake up hold, to move diagonally through the corner.
                    else if place_free(x-cc,y-1) && !(fholdl || fholdr) { fholdl=1; fholdu=place_free(x-1,y-1) }

Coding / Knockback?
« on: August 18, 2012, 04:28:54 pm »
I'm trying to add knock back to my engine so that when Link gets hit by an enemy or projectile, he gets pushed back 2 or 3 pixels. I have a terrible excuse for one implemented right now, but it's not accurate at all :/
Right now I only have 1 enemy in my engine, an octorock, and want Link to be pushed back when the rock hits him. I have this code in the rock object to detect what direction it should move:
Code: [Select]
link_pos = point_direction(objOctorok.x,objOctorok.y,objLink.x+1,objLink.y+20)This works great. I was using kind of the same method to figure out which direction Link should be knocked back, but it doesnt take into consideration negative x and y values :/ Help anyone?

Graphics / [Help]Bottle Sprite
« on: August 13, 2012, 11:37:59 pm »
Hello all, currently working on a bottle icon in ST style for my project. I'm having difficulty on 2 fronts; 1.) The shape, ST icons are always at an angle and the bottles curves are proving difficult for me and 2.) the reflective sheen on the bottles surface to give it that round appearance. Here is what I currently have, any edits or comments are welcome :)

Edit: Getting closer, but still a long way to go. Any suggestions?

« on: April 26, 2012, 03:45:48 pm »

This is an item circle I made for my game, but am not completely happy with it. It was based on early screens of SS. Any advice for making it better/ edits would be appreciated. I'd also like to have ornamental vines wrapping around it, but I cant sprite vines for my life :x Any help would be welcomed. Thanks~

Coding / (help)OOT style Octorok
« on: January 01, 2012, 11:46:35 pm »
So I've been working on an oot style octorok that appears out of the water when close enough and hides when too far away or too close, but have run into a snag....
Code: [Select]
//sets up current state
state = "hide"

//makes octorok appeaR or hide
if (distance_to_object(objLink)<48){
 state = "jump"}
 if (distance_to_object(objLink)>=48){
 state = "hide"}
 if (distance_to_object(objLink)<16){
 state = "hide"}

//sets up sprite based on octoroks current state
 switch state {
 case "hide": sprite_index=sprite13; break;
 case "jump": sprite_index=sprite12;image_speed=.5; break;
 case "idle": sprite_index=sproctorok;image_speed=.4; break;
 case "shoot":
 //change state to idle after jumping up animation ends
 if (sprite_index=sprite12 and image_index=5){

Right now I have a problem changing from a jumping up animation to the idle state waiting to shoot. Any thoughts?

Yep, It'd be wonderful if someone could make me a tree like the ones in TP, I'm extremely sick of seeing the lttp and mc trees. Lttp style view, and close to say, MC palette, close to the size of either of the two trees mentioned above.
