Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: Random Worms

  1. #1

    Random Worms

    This effect has 2 worms moving randomly about the scene, by adding a random angle from x to -x when using trigonometric movement. ex: x=speed*Math.cos(Math.PI/180*angle); Please feel free to critique!

    hmmm...a little boring for me...stick with your other entry!

    Ya I like my other entry better also. If only this one wasn't so cpu intensive, so I could add a few more worms and mathematical effects.

    Looks really nice freeskier89! Please attach just your_effect.swf file without the border and such also

    I really like it, but I think you should make them lighter and add more

    Alright will do, but the your_effect.swf does not simply work with the template. In the attachment process of the movieClips you must specify _root.effect.attachMovie(...) instead of just the normal _root.attachMovie(...) because I believe that in your template you are loading the movie to a container. I will make a seperate standalone file without the border and such! I will send an FLA if that would help with this discrepancy.

    Hey, I like it. I'm interested in mimicing realistic motion and behavior. Do you think you could write a tutorial on how to make it? or share the source file?

    Ya sure spacemunkay. I'll write tutorial on it soon possibly in a few days and then make sure to let you know!

    Finally, spacemunkay and to others whom it may concern. Here is a word document for the tutorial, some time I will put it into html format. Tell me if something in the code does not work or you need a different format of the file. It should though!

    Here, I have updated the worms and now there are a few more of them because I optimized them a bit! (see attachment above) They are a bit lighter also.
