How do most people do collision detection in Flash, in general because the hitTestObject is terrible with the hit box, especially for images that arn’t squares.
1. I am making a top down shooter
In my game i have a character that rotates to face the mouse. He rotates around a center point. You move with the WASD keys and I want it so when he hits an object i dont want him to go through it. I have never done much with collision detection before and don’t understand much of it. Really could use a good step by step tutorial on the kind of collision detection im trying to do. Its not just simple box to box collision i need something that looks better than that.
I also DONT want to use some outside package like people use in bitmap testing, I want to write my own code for this for practice
Would greatly appreciate any help on this or ideas of where to go to learn more about collision detection
