Animation drawing

Post by incognito54 » Wed Feb 27, 2008 12:14 pm

Hey!

I've been trying love for the past few days (one has got to do something in the work breaks) and I can't seem to find a way to draw an animation inverted in relation to the Yy axis. Do I have to have separate animations for left/right facing character?

Thank you!

Ah yes, we have discussed this but the idea passed from our minds a long time ago.. not sure if we have any plans of implementing this anytime soon. Do we, rude?
Now posting IN STEREO (where available)

Hello, and welcome. 8-)

That is only a matter of scaling with negative values ... or a least I thought so until I tried it. The sprite has a horrible tendency to disappear when one value is negative and not the other. Great. ^^

Code: Select all

function draw()
  -- This was supposed to work.
  love.graphics:draw(anim, x, y, 0, -1, 1)
end
It will be fixed in 0.2.1, of course, but until then you'll have to use separate animations for left/right.

It's really helpful. ^^

I remember testing negative scaling just before the 0.2.0 release, but I obviously forgot to test it with only one negative value.

Oh, and here you will find tons of rpgmaker sprites, backgrounds and stuff you can happily use without rpgmaker.

And rude, Everything doesn't seem to have any moderators, maybe you just need to assign yourself as one.
