Paralax Scrolling BG + Sprite Animations

Post by ninwa » Sun Nov 14, 2010 2:13 pm

Hey all!

So I decided, "Hey, I need to learn how to use AnAL." It's a really great library and I recommend everyone who needs animations check it out, that said, here's my little demo that came from learning it. Maybe I'll make it into a game someday (probably not.)

Oh, also, there's paralax backgrounds. It's really simple to do but if you've ever wondered how feel free to look at the code. I drew the backgrounds (not the sprite), so talented, I know.

Screenshot:

Controls:
  • Left/Right Arrow Keys - Move
    'z' - Jump
    'z' while in air - air jump
    'x' - swing sword
    down arrow - fall faster toward the ground

Let me know what you think!

PS: Ryne, you should make me some enemy sprites! It took me forever to even get a pre-made sprite cut-up how I wanted it! :(

Looks good, but the animation doesn't seem to work on my comp (Ubuntu with love 6.2)

When keep pressing left or right, the character animation starts, but after the first "step" it freezes.
When I write def I mean function.

Hm strange. I'll look into this. Thank you Kikito.

Edit: Actually, this may not be a bug Kikito. Well, not something that only you are experiencing. The character does reach the last frame of his flight animation and "glides." -- I still need to work out how I want to loop between frame 4 and 5 of his flight animation, or if I want to make "beginning to glide" and "gliding" two separate animations.

Anyway, that said, this isn't a Love or platform issue, it's a code issue (assuming the sword animation works for you?)

Updated link, added a crate you can bat around, shadows, and sound-effects. I also tweaked how fast you regain flight.

It takes a long time to catch up to the crate!

I have a question about spritebatches... How do you use them?
Do you just do love.graphics.draw(batch,x,y)?

It shouldn't, really. It's velocity is 100-200px/sec on the x-axis and likewise on the y-axis. The character runs at 200px a second so you should be able to keep right up with it, plus there's "friction" so it decelerates pretty quickly. Are you experiencing otherwise? :(

I'm not using them (directly), nor have any experience with them, so I'm not sure.

I see the crate off to the right when it starts, but to get to it. I have to run for a long time as it slowly crawls towards my player.
