Greetings. I have a quick question. Do you know like in an RPG when you attack an enemy a little number pops up showing how much damage you did? I know how to do that, however, I am trying to find the best way to do many of them. Since as in Front Mission when you use a machine gun and there 10 or more different little numbers poping up.

Any ideas? Use TGF by the way. Thanks

How have you got the damage set up? Like, is it from multiple bullet hits with individual actives? For that, just create a new counter (or string, or, as I use, a Text Blitter if that's available in TGF) and set it to whatever damage was caused. Then give it some movement upwards. A good little one that I use is this (moveY being an Alt. Value):

(in your damage/collision code)
-create object(damage icon) at collision point
-set moveY(damage icon) to 10

moveY(damage icon) > 0
-Y(damage icon) -= moveY/2
-subtract 1 from moveY

moveY(damage icon) = 0
-delete damage icon

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your advice. I'll look into using a string or a text blitter.

I use a text blitter object myself for damage pop-ups it works really well. You can assign them values so say when one's created you can assign value A = 5 and then every 0.5 seconds you can subtract from that A. When A = 0 you can have the game destroy that blitter object.

It's actually quite important you say if you're using TGF1 or TF2. TGF 1 doesn't have text blitter and you can't move counters about either.

Yeah, it's been a while since I posted here. I goofed up leaving that info out.

Well I already found a way to do it in tgf, but I thought I'd ask if there was an easier way out there.
