Could be me been tired. But I don't get why my character is falling through the map.

I thought I had done some basic collision detection, after following some tutorials. However it doesn't seem to work and my character simply falls straight through the map.

--player variables
        --initial sprite start
        --point and velocities



function _update()

--left and right movement
if btn(0) then --left

if btn(1) then --right




local v=mget((p1.x+4)/8,(p1.y+8)/8)


if p1.vy>=0 then
        --look for a solid tile
        if fget(v,0) then
            --place p1 on top of tile
            p1.y = flr((p1.y)/8)*8
            --halt velocity
            p1.dy = 0
            --allow jumping again


function _draw()

Do you need to flr your mget arguments? I'm not sure what rounding would do to that. I would print v to check.

P#29951 2016-10-04 09:04 ( Edited 2016-10-04 13:04)

It is coming back as nil.

How can I get it to check for a filled tile on a map?

I have the gravity and movement sorted.

Remove the "local". Otherwise you're not going to see v outside of its local scope.

P#29953 2016-10-04 09:27 ( Edited 2016-10-04 13:27)

Ok so one step closer lol.

V remains as 0 until it gets about a tile close to a filled tiles. Then it shoots up to 38.

P#29954 2016-10-04 09:32 ( Edited 2016-10-04 13:32)

V will just be the number of the Sprite used for the map tile (so I presume you might be using Sprite 38 as a background tile?). Fget is then checking to see if that Sprite has a flag set. You need to set a flag, then look for that (I believe).

Set the first flag of your background sprites (you set this in the Sprite editor), then see if your code works.

So Sprite 38 has its 0 flag set? Yeah what blue said, though I think Sprite 38 would be the ground.

in "if fget(v,0) then" you should do "p1.vy=0"

otherwise the vertical velocity would finish to be so high that it would be higher than 1 sprite/frame, so it would normal it pass through the ground.

Which is exactly what I found lol.

The guy sits there for a couple of frames then decides to fall off the face of planet, so to speak.

P#29964 2016-10-04 10:31 ( Edited 2016-10-04 14:31)

Actually where do I put the p1.vy=0?

When I replace anything in there I get a syntax error.

Sorry. I am trying to learn and this is helpful.

P#29965 2016-10-04 10:36 ( Edited 2016-10-04 14:36)

Never mind got it

P#29966 2016-10-04 10:37 ( Edited 2016-10-04 14:42)

Woo hoo!!

Another safety could be to set a maximum fall value, to avoid issues in case you are falling from very high.

if (p1.vy>3) p1.vy=3 --new

P#29968 2016-10-04 11:03 ( Edited 2016-10-04 15:03)

That was the other thing I want to look into. But for the moment I want to try and get the biggest mechanic in the game done.

But thanks all for your help!

It has bee frustrating but rewarding lol.

Now for a whisky.
