Oh man and just when I thought I was figuring these things out..

Okay, here's exactly what I want to do, and how I'm doing it. And it doesn't work right. Anyhow there are 3 enemy active objects on the frame. When one of them hits my character I want it to change color and some variables and all that. The problem is when one hits the guy they ALL change color and their variables. So I thought my issue was that I wasn't using fastloops and tried this:


Always -> Start loop "BLAH" 3 times / Spread value 0 in alt Variable "SPREADER" for active "ENEMY"

On Loop "BLAH"
+Loop Index "BLAH" = ENEMY alt variable "SPREADER"
+ENEMY is overlapping CHARACTER
+other stuff -> Replace some colors of ENEMY and change the alt variables a bit



So when this didn't work I also tried to re-order some things like when spreading the value
before starting the fastloop but that was no good too. I mean with only 3 enemies this should be really easy, right?

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you!

I know you said you reordered. But did you put the spread value in a separate event? Spread value doesn't work while in the same event as starting a fastloop.

I learned that by reading this:
http://www.create-games.com/article.asp?id=1798

it says that towards the bottom.

Ah, I have them both in the same event. I wonder if that's what's causing the problem.

So aside from that does my condition list look ok? You'd need the "on loop" and a line to compare the loop index with whatever variable is getting a 0 spread in right?

Yeah, i'm pretty sure it will work if you:

Always.
-Spread value 0 in alt Variable "SPREADER" for active "ENEMY"

Always
-Start loop "BLAH" (number of ENEMY) times

Damn Dines is a genius isn't he?

Thanks Ricky, I'll bet that's what the problem is.

P.S: I should've bought a Hero of Time tag when they were cheap!

Ah dammnit there's a problem again!

Okay so the variables only get passed to the single enemy (which is what I want) but the color replacer events recolor every instance of the same sprite on the level (weird!) When I just made it so that an ink effect was used it worked perfectly so it's just the color replacer events that are the problem.

Does anybody know if you CAN just use the color replacer event to recolor a specific sprite or will it always do every one on a frame? If it doesn't work with fastloops I doubt it can be done but who knows?

The color replacer event will affect all of the instances of an object regardless of the object scope. This is due to the fact that mmf replaces the color of active in memory so that all the other objects that refrence this active will change as well. A way around this would be to make a separate animation for the color change. Not only would this fix the problem but the game would run faster too because replacing a color takes more CPU than loading a premade color change.
