Topic: Game Programming / Bullet Hell

Hey guys. So I am trying to make a bullet hell game in as2, but I have come to a problem where I do not know how other bullet hell games make certain enemies pop up at certain times. I only know how to make it randomly generate enemies. Any ideas? Thanks.

Topic: Game Programming / Need help please.

Ok, in games such as launch the turtle and flight, the character go slower when flying upwards and speeds up when flying downwards. I am new to programming so I have no clue how to do this and can find no information on how.

Topic: Game Programming / Need help please.

So I am trying to create a game but I need a way to make the character go different speeds at different angles. For example if he were pointing down he would go faster than pointing up. Does anyone know a tutorial that teaches this? Thanks.

Topic: Game Programming / Object Follow the Mouse-help

Hey guys, I am making a game using actionscript 2. I have looked everywhere but I can not seem to find a way to make an object follow the mouse at a certain speed. I would like the object to slowly go towards the mouse with a speed that can be upgraded. Any ideas?

Topic: Game Programming / Problem with bullets.

Sure, I have a ship.as, bullet.as, and alien.as. Here is ship:

class Ship extends MovieClip
{
	var velocity;
	
	var enemyTimer;
	var shootLimiter;
	var enemies: Array;
	
	function onLoad()
	{
		velocity = 8;
		enemyTimer = 0;
		shootLimiter = 0;
		enemies = []
	}
	
	function onEnterFrame()
	{
		shootLimiter += 1;
		if( Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT) ){_x = _x + velocity;}
		if( Key.isDown(Key.LEFT) ){_x = _x - velocity;}
		
		if( Key.isDown(Key.SPACE) && shootLimiter > 20)
		{
			shootLimiter = 0;
			var bullet = _root.attachMovie("Bullet","Bullet" + _root.getNextHighestDepth(), _root.getNextHighestDepth());
			bullet._x = _x;
			bullet._y = _y - 20;
		}
	 
	
		enemyTimer += 1;
		if(enemyTimer > 30)
		{
			enemyTimer = 0;
			var enemy = _root.attachMovie("Alien", "Alien" + _root.getNextHighestDepth(), _root.getNextHighestDepth());
			enemies.push(enemy);
		}
	}
}

Here is bullet:

class Bullet extends MovieClip
{
	var speed;
	
	function onLoad()
	{
		speed = 20;
	}
	
	function onEnterFrame()
	{
		_y -= speed;
		
		for(var i in _root.ship.enemies)
		{
			if(this.hitTest( _root.ship.enemies[i] ) )
			{
				_root.ship.enemies[i].takeDamage();
				this.removeMovieClip();
			}
		}
		
		if(_y < -50)
		{
			this.removeMovieClip();
		}
	}
}

Here is alien:

class Alien extends MovieClip
{
	var speed;
	
	function onLoad()
	{
		_x = Math.random()*300;
		_y = -100
		speed = Math.random()*5 + 5;
	}
	
	function onEnterFrame()
	{
		if(this.hitTest(_root.ship))
		{
			explode();
		}
		
		_y += speed;
		if(_y > 650)
		{
			this.removeMovieClip();
		}
	}
	
	function takeDamage()
	{
		explode();
	}

	function explode()
	{
		var explosion = _root.attachMovie("Explosion","Explosion" + _root.getNextHighestDepth(),_root.getNextHighestDepth());
		explosion._x = _x;
		explosion._y = _y;
		this.removeMovieClip();
	}
}

I already have a var enemies; is this needed? I tried taking out var enemies and adding var enemies: Array;, it did not help.

I am pushing them into an array with:
enemies.push(enemy);
located in ship.as

I am new to programming, i do not know what that means. All that I am doing is only what is in the code in relation to bullets hitting enemies.

I tried that just now and it did not fix it. The problem is the bullets are flying right through the alien and just keep on going.

Topic: Game Programming / Problem with bullets.

Hey, I am programming a new game with a ship, aliens, and bullets. For some reason, when I shoot with the ship, the bullets go right through the alien and don’t do anything. My bullet.as has this code:

for(var i in _root.ship.enemies)
{
	if(this.hitTest( _root.ship.enemies[i] ) )
	{
		this.removeMovieClip();
		_root.ship.enemies[i].takeDamage();
	}
}

and my alien.as has this code:

function takeDamage()
{
	explode();
}
function explode()
{
	var explosion = _root.attachMovie("Explosion","Explosion" + _root.getNextHighestDepth(),_root.getNextHighestDepth());
	explosion._x = _x;
	explosion._y = _y;
	this.removeMovieClip();
}

Anyone know the problem?
