    SOLVED Point-in-Direction Movement using Sin & Cos

    I've used this code for quite some time now in a separate engine, and found it works flawlessly. However, when I use the same concept in GMS2, I seem to have trouble with where the object accelerates. Basically, I want an object to change it's x and y position based on the direction it's pointed...

    A Space Rocks Issue -- incorrect bullet angle

    I'm using GML on GameMaker Studio 2 IDE v2.3.0.529 I apologize if this issue has been discussed elsewhere, but after prowling forums and Google and YouTube, I still cannot find a satisfactory answer to explain why the bullets will not shoot straight out of the end of my ship while it's in...

    How to have momentum carried over to new object when they switch places

    I'm relatively new to gamemaker but know the basics and how it all works. While making a game I ran into an issue where the player character (playergrounded) goes from being affected by gravity then by the press of space not being affected (playerfly) so the player can fly. I decided to go down...

    Question about physics_particle_draw(typemask, category, sprite, subimg) and particles momentum

    Hello,I'm currently having fun optimizing a game that has massive usage of soft particles; I've noticed physics_particle_draw(typemask, category, sprite, subimg) documentation states: "The drawn particle will use the colour and alpha values set when you created it, and will rotate with the...

    GML Object Inertia/Drift non-image angle direction

    Hello, Making a top down space shooter and not using the physics engine in game maker studio 2. I have movement code that is mostly nice and smooth for turning speeds / acceleration / deceleration figured out but when I release a direction key (key_up or key_down) and start rotating the sprite...

    Legacy GM Make objects that roll off and bounce when colliding with one another

    I'm currently trying to make a bullet-hell style game where bullets rain down and the player must guard the target using a shield. Instead of just having the bullets disappear when hit by the shield I'm trying to make it so they'll pick up some of the shields vertical/horizontal momentum...

    GMS 2 [SOLVED] Can't figure out how to do collision for accelerated movement

    As the title says, I quite suck at doing collision, mainly because my movement code includes accelerating and decelerating hspeed and vspeed and all the fixes i've looked for rely on the fact that the movement speed is fixed and doesn't change. In the step command of obj_player: maxspeed = 6...

    Momentum Help

    Hey so I'm fairly new to gamemaker (using for about 2 weeks now) and my friend and I are working on making 2D platformer right now. We were trying to add in momentum but we couldn't figure out how to get it to work. Heres the code we currently have: (Oh and as a side note this is the entire...

    Ramp Collision

    Hello everyone, my friend and I are trying to develop a simple game in which a square moves through a floor and jumps through ramps, just to begin to familiarize with the IDE and all. So, we're stuck to a problem with the ramp collision it kinda works but, when it starts to move on top of the...

    Swinging With Lengthdir_x, etc..

    I want to make the player swing from a fixed object. I have lengthdir set up and can make them rotate around it using the D and A keys but would like to add a form of physics to the whole system. i,e: Add the speed that they're travelling in a direction to when the grab onto the object and use...

    GMS 2 [SOLVED] Player Movement Momentum

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out the best way to have my top-down player lag when changing opposite direction (180 degrees) before moving the other direction to give the appearance of momentum. So when you're running left and the move the gamepad right, I want my player to stumble and cutback left...

    GMS 2 Problems coding momentum

    I'm making a racing game, and this is my first game I'm trying to make without YouTube tutorial help. I had a problem with getting the object to move in the direction it was facing, but after coming here my problem was solved pretty fast. So, I have a new problem. My player object moves...

    Design Wall Jumping - Movement Controls and Mechanics

    Long post, but I've been doing some experimenting and it's a conversation I've been wanting to have for a while. I've been scrambling together bits of code recently and testing out momentum based movement. Mostly by theory-crafting how movement can be fun on it's own if it's intuitive and...

    Help, Programming Trajectory Logic

    Hi, Im trying to program a trajectory plotting script for a 2D space game. The trajectory is the combination of two thrusters and a cannon that add to the momentum of a ship over time. Example right now the plot circles update over time the same way the ship would using motion_add if(hold) {...

    Acceleration and Momentum (Physics Question)

    Hello GMC! Today I have a question about acceleration and momentum using GameMaker's physics. I'm making a car racing game, and I'd like there to be bigger and heavier vehicles that accelerate slower but can hold up some steady momentum and don't get thrown off their path as easily as the little...

    Legacy GM [HELP] Preserve momentum on instance_change

    Hey, so I've been working on my own physics for a game and I am currently working on making hitting spikes feel more like actually hitting spikes so far falling onto spikes looks great since you will stop and then slowly slide down but I'm having issues with spikes on a ceiling or on a wall...

    Movement Code Optimization

    Hello everyone, I'm mostly new to coding and completely new to GameMaker, so I want to stress immediately that I'm not attempting to get anyone to build my game for me or anything like that. This is my first thread, and I want to (in some minor way) make something useful for other beginners like...

    Legacy GM Momentum and Crouching Problems

    For a while I have been having trouble to create a fully functional crouching animation for my player character. Just recently I have found a bit of a solution but it is a bit buggy, I'll get to that later. Right now I have a very important question. How do I properly implement friction in my...
