This is literally the one thing holding back all of my projects, i can do it in C++ and C# but cannot for the life of me work it out in MMF2!

I want to have say. 30 enemies, walking around, stopping randomly. That bit's easy. Then i want to compare their position relative to the main character, if its close, attack, else, keep walking.

When i do the correct code for this and have one enemy, it works perfectly, when i have more than one enemy they are just attacking all the time.

So frustrating. Can someone clue me in to managing instances of the same object separately?


Thanks so much in advance!

What's the perspective on this game? Is it side-scrolling or overhead? If it's sidescrolling, a simple comparison of the object's X position (Greater than Player's X - 100 but less than Player's X + 100) should put the specific enemy as the focus object.

Overhead means distance formula, so not quite as simple.

*bows* Thank you, ruler of cows.

I'm currently only comparing the Y value in that manner, i should PROBABLY add the X value to my equation. Its a sidescroller yes, i'll try and let you know

You have to use alterable values.

+ Always
-> Enemy: set "Distance" to Abs(X("Enemy") - X("Player"))

+ "Distance" of "Enemy" < AttackRange("Enemy")
-> Enemy: change animation to Attack
-> Enemy: shoot bullet...

Note: "Distance" and "AttackRange" are just two renamed alterable values.
You should read this article: http://www.create-games.com/article.asp?id=1975
And also the others listed at the bottom under "Further Reading".
