So I was working on adding shadows into my top down shooter engine/game, and this is where it ended up after some playing around.

It's like 60 minutes on acid.

I must say.
WHAT THE F!?

Well that's not the point that you can shoot throu walls!! ur game is briliant looking from the scripting side!! I love that "sight fog" effect the most!!! I'm making first steps in flash gaming as well... check my latest project [link] , it's still in design phase and is missing a lot of things. Sometimes u need to click on stage to make things working, or its slowing down when there's more then 1 monkey... any ideas how i can correct it??
thx

If I gave you $50 right now, what would you do with it?

What are you using for the AI?

Do you make the x/y add/minus to get to the waypoint?
ssjskipp's avatar
Yep. There's a little blip in it that I need to hammer out.

Why do you ask? I wrote all the code this is running on.

Ahh, just wondering.

Also: You can shoot through walls.
Also Also: I seriously just went through and killed everything for no reason.

Yeah, I know. I kind of want to make sure everything component "works", then fix glitches, then optimize it all.

This is just a kind of "CHECK OUT THIS AWESOME TRIPPY THING I MADE" :D

Perhaps in a future project, you could make that effect intentionally. Or maybe as an easter egg in this one.
