Hello, i'm having some problems with animation.

Whenever I do this:

if rightkey()=1 then loop object 1,1,10
if rightkey()=0 then loop object 1,11,20

but if I release the key in the middle of the loop, it finishes the loop before it goes to the second loop. I would like it to go to the second loop right away. How do i do this?

thanks in advance,
Mitchell

Hi, welcome to the DBC forums.

I think you could use the STOP OBJECT command, like this:



You would need to change the object name from "YourObject.x" to the actual name and pathway for your object.

RIGHTKEY() is going to return 1 if the key is pressed and 0 if not, so you should not have to test for it twice. The example I have given shows this.

The code checks to see if the current object frame is within the animation that you want and only resets it when needed. It exits when the spacebar is pressed.

Hope this is helpful.

So many games to code.....so little time.

@LBFN
I'm still working on an animator for DBC. I usually can only afford an hour or 2 a week with my new schedule so it's taking a while. The DarkNoobs project hasn't been abandoned.

Enjoy your day.

Hi Latch,

Glad to hear you are still working on the animator. Perhaps things could be scaled back a little on the Farm game since time is at a premium?
