OKAY OKAY so ive been making games for ages but never posted any. This is because i never finish them! i never finish them because my programming isnt too good. Its a shame because i like to show off my graphics, ive asked before but program given didnt work!
can somebody PLEASE tell me how:
a) to make a standard platform engine in TGF
b) to make a standard Spring Engine for a platform game in TGF
i asked a while ago but the example given to me made the character jump once off the spring and then the spring didnt work again after one go?

Hmmm... when I looked at a custom platform movement in the beginning I wouldn't understand it very well, that's why I used standard platform movement. Just practice a lot and try some challenges. When you're good enough you'll eventually understand how to create a custom platform movement, and after that, harder.
Also, whip out your Games Factory disc and check out the example game called "Zeb", it has a fantastic homemade platform movement which uses no extensions. The part making him land on the ground properly with a helluva lot of sensors is a little confusing though, but if using the fastloop object that part isn't needed.
There are tutorials for making platform engines on the CD too, although, similiar to with Zeb, making the character land on the ground properly without landing 'in' the ground can be a pain without the fastloop object.
