Hi all, I'm not specifically sure what this would be applied too but I've just been wondering a few things, this might seem a bit stupid of a question to ask but when I'm just curious, at what point does code become your code and should I feel bad about using someone else's code? Obviously as it is now I've just started to get into gamemaker about 2 days ago and it's been confusing to be honest, but I can pick up some small things. Like this code I have attached is from WreckingPrograms tutorial on how to make megaman style moving/shooting. I've also watched shaun spaulding's tutorials and almost finished his 2D game tutorial. I'm just confused about whether if there's anything I'm missing, because when shaun makes a 2D collision I feel a little at odds because I can't really think of alternatives that are better to me (because I have no experience obviously). What I'm trying to get at is, do finished games people have made and sold use similar code to what's in those videos or are you supposed to just come up with a much better way to do something like that? I just feel a little bit stupid and almost like it's copying without learning/understanding.
