Hello everybody,

I'm new on this forum even if I read this site for a few months now.

I have a problem with a project I'm working on. I want the main caracter to explode into pieces when he die but I can't find an "easy" way to do it. Maybe someone here know how to do this or where I can find a tutorial explaining how. I have searched on the tutorials here (in articles and in downloads) but did not find any.

Sorry for my poor english, I'm french.

Thank you.

Haha I was confused when the title in the sidebar said "Explode into Pie..."

The easiest way to do this (assuming you're using MMF2) is to make a bunch of objects that are pieces of your player and when he dies, create these at him. They should all have pinball movement with directions set upward if you want it to look moderately cool.

The complex way would be making the gravity system yourself etc.

Making my own gravity system is not a problem, but as you said it's not the easiest way to do it. And not the fastest too. On retro remakes forum, someone offered to help me with that (very kind peoples on RR, like here). But I'll try that thing with pinball movement, so thank you very much.

If anybody as another idea, don't be shy...

or you could use ball movement for the exploding parts and do this with them

create part at 0,0 to the player
set speed to 50
set direction to 0
create part at 0,0 to the player
set speed to 50
set direction to 8
create part at 0,0 to the player
set speed to 50
set direction to 16
create part at 0,0 to the player
set speed to 50
set direction to 24

when part is closer than 0 pixels from window edge. Destroy part.

Indeed, first thing I thought of was bouncing ball movement. I used it in asteroids.

I have made it using the pinball movement and the effect is really great, just what I was searching for. General Zod on retro remakes forum as made something great too, It's not unpredictable like with the pinball movement but it works really well too.

So thank you for the tips, the result is really great. It's too bad I can't put a file here for you to look at those two methods.

Aww. I also saw the subject on the sidebar and was expecting bullet-time videos of exploding pies. I feel deceived.

I don't want to do an animation for the death sequence for 3 reasons :

- I'm not a pixel artist and,
- The result is always the same.
- And the best way to learn, is to experiment no ?

Here are the links for you to test :

Pinball movement :

http://www.mediafire.com/?z3nhjjzdmjz

General Zod (this one need flame object) :

http://www.mediafire.com/?ddpmxe2ubyl

These files are EXE file, but if someone want to see the code, I'll make screen capture, even if for mine, there isn't much to see in the code.

Sorry but is it a joke ? As said in my first post, I'm not english...

Do you mean you'd prefer an mfa file instead of an exe file ? If I'm right, just ask and I'll give you with great pleasure.
