Okay, alright...

Is there an easy way to have the sound fade in and out as you get farther away from things, also in the vertical direction. I know it works left and right...
but not up and down, it seems.

Edit: i tried with
this.SetSoundVolume(100-(0.15*(position_Y-this.Y)));
where position_Y is the actor's Y position. But it didn't work. What am I doing wrong?

Edit again:
Code: [Select]
var ent = this.entity;
ent.SetSoundVolume(0);
this.SetSoundVolume(0);
...doesn't appear to work either. What am I missing?


And now for the second question...

What's the best way to implement direct control for 2d charcters. I mean:
up - he walks up.
left - he walks left.
Right - hw walks right.
Down - he walks down.

Like regular action movement.

Or is direct control out of control for the 2d characters altogether?

What's the best way to do a "simple action movement" for the actor?

Ok, this looks to me like a mathematical error to me, but please feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken.

If you want a formula for sound to be quietest at the top of the screen and loudest at the bottom, try something like :

this.SetSoundVolume ((position_Y / this.Y) * 100)

Or, if you want the opposite effect (sound softest at the bottom of the screen, loudest at the top) :

this.setSoundVolume (100-((position_ Y / this.Y) * 100))

I hope that helps, good luck!

As for the direct control for 2D characters, Igorrr's Spank the Hero minigame uses it.

There's also some further discussion in this thread: http://forum.dead-code.org/index.php?topic=615.0

I hope that helps.

Thanx Mnemonic.

While offline, I tried with

Code: [Select]
global position_X;
global position_Y;

while(true)
{

if(Game.Interactive)
{
if(Keyboard.IsKeyDown(VK_LEFT))
{      position_X=this.X-130;
position_Y=this.Y;
                      actor.GoTo(position_X, position_Y);

}
if(Keyboard.IsKeyDown(VK_RIGHT))
{   position_Y=this.Y;
                    position_X=this.X+130;
                      actor.GoTo(position_X, position_Y);

}
if(Keyboard.IsKeyDown(VK_UP))
{
position_X=this.X;
position_Y=this.Y-130;
                      actor.GoTo(position_X, position_Y);
}
if(Keyboard.IsKeyDown(VK_DOWN))
{
position_X=this.X;
position_Y=this.Y+130;
                      actor.GoTo(position_X, position_Y);

}
}
Sleep(20);
}

I worked so so... in a bad sorta way.

Igorrr's script is way better. ;D

Just one thing. It's wierd that the "direct control" script doesn't work by itself in my game (it did in Ogorrr's).
I had to instert it into the actor's script file. And I couldn't find what files are referencing it, either.

Oh well...
At least it works all right. So who am I to complain? :)

I believe the script is supposed to be attached to game, either in ProjectMan or by calling Game.AttachScript().
