Hey everyone, firstly I'd just like to point out this is an example based on the extension "Platform Movement extension." It is the greatest extension ever, and if you have MMF but don't have this extension..... Then get it!

This example explains how to do some basic and some more complex movements with the new object (Even though the extension makes complex movements easy ). It includes:

*Movement (Inlcudes Jumping)
*Water (Swimming)

Here is some extra information on the extension: You can edit the preset platoform movements, and add your own. Just go to the extensions folder and open "Platformmovpresets.ini" it contains the preset values and adding your own saves time when you next want to recreate that same movement. -Andy

Posted by ChrisB 2nd September, 2003

Good. Because there will be 8 objects you supposedly won't use. :P

Is this extension available for The Games Factory?
Posted by Silveraura 2nd September, 2003

no, only MMF 1.5. ;-) Its sweet how now you can make custom movement outcomes with the ease of standered movement outcome!

The diamond is actually 1cm tall and we're looking at it in slow motion through a small camera.

Istvan, the extension is MMF 1.5 only so you can't do it in TGF. I have a feeling we're going to be bombed with newbie games with great platform engines, perfect saving, smooth directional bosses, loading screens with progress bars they dont need and fancy text effects. Ahh well, it makes a change from the crap we've got already.

Um. I think Magic Deque is 10x better than the platform object. It's awesome for data.

I've tried to install the bonus pack, but it syas that I do not actually have MMF installed. Thanks, bonus pack. Just give me the extensions, please.

Tis very good. Though, I've seen better Static Engine's over at SFGHQ. Man, I wish this extension was available for TGF Pro too...

It sucks that this isnt for TGF. Im= was looking foward to it too.

It's kind of a hassle to work if you don't know what it all means. Reading up on it is required. Also, sacrificing animations and programming directly linked to the actual object rather than the 'movement object' hardly makes this worth it, in my opinion. This is a very nice tutorial though.
