New Engine: EE & Zephni's Kick-Bottom Scrolling Engine
News posted 20th March, 2011 by The Chris Street  
Eternal Man [EE] and Zephni have collaborated together to create a fantastic and easy-to-use scrolling engine, for use in platformers primarily, but can be adapted for pretty much any game genre. It's open source, very brilliant and extremely helpful so there is no excuse to not download it.

Comments from the Author:
"It features a smooth follow-cam, "looking around", scroll-borders and the infamous Metroid-style doors... The whole thing is 60 events, though it's quite improvable and compressable since the events are ordered in such a manner that each feature is easily recognized and removed from the rest. If you intertwine the features you can save a hugh amount of events. "

I'm a bit lost... Is it for MMF2 only ??

Posted by Eternal Man [EE] 24th March, 2011

Nope! The zip contains 2 versions, the original (which included two extensions i.e only MMF2) and an updated, TGF friendly, version (using no extensions, but sports a quite awful platform engine). The latter one is my preferred version, seeing as it needs no extensions, uses a bit less events (scrolling engine wise) and shows a nice way to pause movement + move the player during a metroid styled screen-to-screen transition.

But don't take it from me! Download it and see for yourself!

Thx for the answer. Actually, I was wondering if it was usable with Construct. But anyway, I'll pass this time .

There are compiled .exe's in the zip if you're curious about how it looks.


EDIT: Ha ha, I made a headshot-smiley!
