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.

Cheers,

Thread: Making one set of MC's move toward another

  1. #1

    Afrostyle Making one set of MC's move toward another

    I need the MC's on the left, to choose(randomly if possible) a target to the right and move towards it.

    My code is:

    Code:
    //ALL IN ARRAY MOVE TOWARDS ONE ENEMY
    var iArray:Array = [];
    var kArray:Array = [];
    //object 1 array
    for (i=0; i<20; i++) {
        newI = "i_"+i;
        iArray.push(newI);
        _root.attachMovie("i", newI, _root.getNextHighestDepth());
        _root[newI]._x = 100+Math.round(Math.random()*30);
        _root[newI]._y = Math.round(Math.random()*300);
    }
    //object 2 array
    for (k=0; k<5; k++) {
        newK = "k_"+k;
        kArray.push(newK);
        _root.attachMovie("k", newK, _root.getNextHighestDepth());
        _root[newK]._x = 400+Math.round(Math.random()*30);
        _root[newK]._y = Math.round(Math.random()*300);
    }
    //loops,target, move and hitT
    for (l=0; l != kArray.length; l++) {
        for (m=iArray.length; m != 0; m--) {
            targetL = eval(kArray[l]);
            targetM = eval(iArray[Math.round(Math.random()*iArray.length)]);
            if (targetM == undefined) {
                targetM = eval(iArray[1]);
            }
            targetL.onEnterFrame = function() {
                //trace(targetM);
                if (this._x<targetM._x) {
                    this._x++;
                } else if (this._x>targetM._x) {
                    this._x--;
                }
                if (this._y<targetM._y) {
                    this._y++;
                } else if (this._y>targetM._y) {
                    this._y--;
                }
                if (this.hitTest(targetM)) {
                    trace("HIT"+targetM);
                    trace(this+" vs "+targetM);
                }
            };
        }
    }

    As you can see they all go towards one, when each of them should go individually to another individual(or not), just not all to the same.

    Hope someone understands...

    Code:
    if (targetM == undefined) {
                targetM = eval(iArray[1]);
    }
    
    Should that be [1] or [l]
    Perhaps that's why they're targetting the same man?

    I got it to work. I inserted MC's in the Arrays differently and gave each object in the array a personal target, heh. Like so, in case someone else ever needs this:

    Code:
    //ALL IN ARRAY MOVE TOWARDS ONE ENEMY
    var iArray:Array = [];
    var kArray:Array = [];
    //object 1 array
    for (i=0; i<5; i++) {
        var newI = _root.attachMovie("i", i, _root.getNextHighestDepth());
        iArray.push(newI);
        iArray[i]._x = 100+Math.round(Math.random()*30);
        iArray[i]._y = Math.round(Math.random()*300);
        trace(iArray)
    }
    //object 2 array
    for (k=0; k<5; k++) {
        var newK = _root.attachMovie("k", k, _root.getNextHighestDepth());
        kArray.push(newK);
        
        kArray[k]._x = 400+Math.round(Math.random()*30);
        kArray[k]._y = Math.round(Math.random()*300);
        kArray[k].toFollow = Math.round(Math.random()*iArray.length);
        kArray[k].onEnterFrame = function() {
            if (this._x<iArray[this.toFollow]._x) {
                this._x += 2;
            } else if (this._x>iArray[this.toFollow]._x) {
                this._x -= 2;
            }
            if (this._y<iArray[this.toFollow]._y) {
                this._y += 2;
            } else if (this._y>iArray[this.toFollow]._y) {
                this._y -= 2;
            }
        };
    }
    Cheers!
