NOTE TO ADMINS: It turns out the original zip was corrupt. It's fixed now, so if you have trouble, try re-downloading. Thanks.

This is the latest version of a widget I have made to help with 360 degree shooting.

For those that don't know, widgets are objects containing pre-coded events in their behaviours. They are designed to fuction independently of other objects and can be copied between projects, and used to handle common tasks without the need to rewrite a lot of events.

If you're new to MMF2 and want to add 360 shooting, this widget could help.

Bullet Widget includes the following features:

* mouse aiming,
* automatic sprite rotation (32-dir, 360-speed, 360-quality),
* variable projectile speed & angle,
* ability to limit range & accuracy,
* gravity.

Full instructions are included in the widget's behaviour.
It would be nice to know if anyone actually uses this.

IMPORTANT: This requires a recent build of MMF2, as it use the ATan2 function.

Haha! I suppose I could have waited about a month for the official release, eh? I'll check this widget out later this week. It would be nice to try out the accuracy features and see how they work.

Thanks again for being such a generous, helpful coder, Sketchy!!!

UrbanMonk: Do you have the latest build of MMF2? This uses the ATan2 function which wasn't added until #248.

Gah, evil new extensions.. =/

Can't use this. :[
Posted by Sketchy 21st October, 2008

huh? it doesn't use any extensions - you just need to update MMF.
