IDE :: Tower Defense Game Bullet Disappear?

Mar 16, 2010

-What i want - once the bullet hits a monster OR goes out side of the range of the gun it disappears and another shot can be fired (which is done automatically via my script no user input needed)

-What i have - when the bullet goes off the page (x>550, x<0, Y>400, Y<0) it disappears and another shot can be fired... obviously this is problematic to game play...

Code:
Stop();
base_range = 200;
can_be_placed = false;

Tower Defense Game Bullet Disappear

Mar 16, 2010

I found a tutorial on the internet and have begun toying with it. I figured out what all the segments did and how they worked and effected the game (mostly through trial and error...) once i figured out what EXACTLY i had i started making changes.

Flash :: Tower Defense - Detecting If The Bullet Hits The Enemies

Apr 22, 2011

I am creating a tower defense game and I want to make a tower that shoots a bullet and every enemy that the bullet hits is damaged. The bullet can hurt multiple units. My problem is detecting if the bullet hits the enemies. Right now, I have the enemies in an array. With other towers, when an enemy is in range, the tower fires and when it hits its original target, it causes damage to that target.

For the tower I want to make, it will shoot the bullet the maximum range every time and I need it to damage every unit it hits on the way to that final destination.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Tower Defense Type Game - Object Access?

Feb 14, 2012

I am hammering out a Tower Defense type game. I'm starting to design my custom unit mechanics. I've used numerous other tutorials for the framework here (largely one mans blog - credited in my AS3 file..) I want when a unit dies, that it runs a function - checks a field I've created within the unit called a 'tag' - and depending on that do other things. From within the kill() function I successfully call my infantryDeath() function, and I've verified within kill() it's recognizing the dead objects tag. I've verified the entry into infantryDeath() and that the tag is still the same.

Here's the problem:
function infantryDeath(creep){
//inGameMessage("infantryDeath() successfully called"); <-- works
//inGameMessage("Unit died with ID: " + creep.tag); <-- properly shows the ID of the "creep" it received
inGameMessage(this); <-- prints out _level0 (the id for the level itself)
if (creep.tag = c1) <-- the unit with this tag dies, and triggers this block successfully{
[Code] .....

I have no clue why the object I'm supposedly working with changes just by virtue of being within the "if" block. If I pass an object into a function shouldn't manipulating that object remain constant within that function?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Shooting Game Bullet Removal?

Feb 18, 2009

So the problem is basicly this: It all works just fine, but when the bullet hits the target it gets destroyed (this is ok) but also any bullet that was shoot before it (meaning also: with a lower y) gets destroyed aswell wich is anoying. Here's the code (left the comments so you can find your way around easier)

Code:
stop();//add a stop function too!
enemyspeed =1
life=3
var gameOver:Boolean = false;

[URL], but this is a completely different question. I now have a fully functionnal jet plane which fires tiny red bullets. Now, I want to be able to alternate between bullet/ammo types on the fly, (with a shortcut like shift or something, but not neceserilly that) from the red bullet to something like a yellow laser.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Setup Bullet Factory/bullet Switch For The Same Player Object?

Mar 25, 2011

I'm currently making my own shoot'em up game where the player can switch  between two player types which will fire their own bullet type in this  case, squares and circles. I've setup the player switch function via  pressing "space" button (switching between the two player types) and the  default bullet type is "squares" and I'm not sure to approach the  coding with changing the bullet type to "circles".I've written 2 classes for the bullet and player setup:Player Class: Creates instance of bullet on screen and enables the switch player type function

Bullet Class: Enables bullet properies and bullet types Player Class: Code:function onKeyDown(event:KeyboardEvent):void {if (event.keyCode == 32) //// pressing/holding "space bar" to function

ActionScript 3.0 :: Shooting Multiple Bullets - Press The Space Bar The First Bullet Disappears And The Bullet Animation Starts Again

Nov 24, 2008

I'm trying to make my platform game character shoot a gun, my character and gun are one movieclip and the bullet is another. The bullet mc starts on a blank frame with a stop() function, when I press the space bar the bullet mc plays from frame 2 which is a motion tween of the bullet quickly moving across the page. I've set the bullet's y and x values relative to the character mc so that the bullet always comes from the gun.

My issue is that if I press the space bar a bullet will fly out of the gun (great!) but if I press the space bar again, the first bullet disappears and the bullet animation starts again. I want to be able to shoot a new bullet every time I press the space bar without effecting the bullets that have already been shot.

ActionScript 2.0 :: CS3 : Remove Multiple Movieclips From Tower Defence?

Mar 5, 2009

I have a tower defence and when you lose I have a button to go back to the main screen. Only problem is that I cannot find a way to remove the enemies from the screen as well. Here is all of the code for the game, because I figure I might as well give you everything now, than later. I also wanted to give you all my variable names that would be used...

Code:
stop();
// Params = Number, Health, Speed, Time between releases, Gold per creep);
_root.waves = [[10, 50, 2.500000E+000, 2000, 2],

ActionScript 3.0 :: Remove/delete A Movie-clip Once A Button Has Been Pressed (Selling A Tower)?

Mar 4, 2010

What I'm trying to do - remove/delete a movie-clip once a button has been pressed (Selling a tower)My problem - Is that from my limited knowledge none of the following work.

removeChild(myTower);
Turret.removeChild(myTower); - (trying to reference the class of the turret so that it can access the movieclip)
Turret.parent.removeChild(Turret)
Turret(root).removeChild(Turret)

This function is placed in the first frame of the source.fla where all main functions are.The turret has its own class defining its properties and such.Basically what i want to happen is when the button function is activated to remove the movieclip Turret and the class from running.

CS3 Dynamic Textbox Bullet Bug

Apr 22, 2009

I've been working with Flash for over 3 years, but I can't figure this one out. I've got a body of text, half of which are bulleted points designated by <li></li>. It's loaded into a html-ised dynamic textbox.

[Code]....

It displays fine as is. However, if I make the box selectable, and select any part of the bulleted list, the ENTIRE body of text turns into a giant bulleted list, including the non-bulleted portion at the beginning. I've managed to replicate this bug with Flash 8 and CS3, using a variety of flas made from scratch.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Bullet Is Not Starting From The Car?

Nov 26, 2010

I'm creating a small car game where you shoot from the car, so I've made a bullet animation with this code inside the mocieclip:

Actionscript Code:
shellNo = 0;function shellEject(){shell_holder.attachMovie("shellAnim", shellNo, shellNo);shellNo++;}

But the problem is that the car is moving when you controll it so the bullet stays on the same position and I want it to follow the car and start from the same position as the car whereever it goes.

Flash :: Program The Path Of A Bullet?

Nov 8, 2010

I am playing around with ActionScript 3 and trying to build a very simple prototype for a video game (top-down action/shooter) and realized that handling bullets is a little bit more challenging than I originally imagined.

In order to get a fairly decent "flight" of the bullet between the character and the target, I ended up using a highly modified version of Bresenham's Line Algorithm to determine the flight path of the bullet and then merely draw a tiny flash.geom.Rectangle object at the appropriate place on that "flight path" during the draw-frame stage of my application.

I haven't noticed any real problems, but I just can't imagine this being the best way to handle bullets in a Flash game. I imagine that once there are multiple enemy players on the screen and lots of bullets flying around (especially once I code in automatic weapons) that things could come grinding to a halt.

What am I missing here? I'm not really a game developer and so most of the things I'm doing I've just "made up" on the spot, but I can't figure out how to effectively handle bullets in Flash.

EDIT: As requested, here is "my" Bresenham code. I say "my" in quotes, because I basically ripped this from somewhere on the internet. My changes to the algorithm basically involve the lines at the bottom. The original implementation would find the path from player character to the target, except that every once in a while (and I wasted a little bit of time trying to figure this out but never got anywhere) it will generate the path from the target to the player. To "fix" this, I ended up just checking the first X/Y values from the path array and reversing the array if those values didn't match the X/Y values of my player character.

I am trying to create a bullet hole effect when you click the mouse down.I want a bullet hole to appear where you click the mouse and to stay there, and then when you have > 10 bullet holes on the stage i want to earliest ones to start to fade out.

Here is my code so far:

[AS]
onClipEvent (mouseDown) {
i++;
this.duplicateMovieClip("BulletHole"+i, i+1);

[code]...

However this just duplicates the movie clip and then when you click again it disapears straight away.
