I've used the search function and found nothing so I thought I'd ask. I could probally find one pre done or have one made for me but I wanna learn how to do it.

A text based tut is what I'm looking for not the type that gives you the finished article and no clue how to use it.

Thanks.

PS I promise not to do a Zelda fangame as there are far too many of those lol

If it interests you, theres an series of articles by maVado which describes how to make an inventory like the ones in Diablo.

The first one is right here

Thanks, I had seen that and it may be useful in the future, but not for the moment. What i need in the tut is:

8 way movement
Jumping
Combat

It's mainly the combat that's the problem. When the player hits the attack button and the hero swings his sword I presume it would trigger the attack animation. I can probally figure that out. Also when attack is pressed you could have any enemies who come into contact with the hero take damage but thats no use as only the enemy who comes into contact with the sword should take damage.

Also not sure about jumping. I supose pit spikes etc could be crossable no damage while the jump animation is active and I could increase the size of the sprite slightly while in air but not sure how that would work.

Don't know where to start really.

It's really late where I am now so I can't go into a lot but I have a good solution to your combat woes. What you could do is make your hero with an attack animation (with a sword or something), then CLONE your hero sprite and edit it so that only the sword's blade exists in the attack animation's frames. Then make this clone sprite invisible because you're just going to be using it as a hitbox.

Have it always be equal (animation and frame-wise) to whatever the hero sprite is doing, and use THAT CLONE for collision checks against the enemies. This way only enemies who come in contact with your sword's blade will get damaged (when the attack animation is playing of course.)

I've been using something like this for the last few games I've made and I find it works well. If you need to increase the size of your attack hitbox you can just go into the clone's sprite and edit in a few more pixels here or there around the sword's blade. Since it's invisible anyhow it doesn't really matter if it matches up exactly to the visible sword, just as long as it's pretty close.

What I normally do for weapon detection is make a simple circular active object. Just a black circle. Then I make it so if this object exists, it is destroyed (which in effect makes it disappear as soon as it is created). Then I used the action point on the player's character to determine where this black circle should be spawned, and then make evens for when the black circle overlaps whatever object.
