Re: Moving the background

EDIT: You can also use the ScreenPositionObject-command to position the newly created enemies according to screen coordinates. I'd use those CameraX() and CameraY() -functions, though.

Re: Moving the background

Use Distance2()-function to get the distance between the player and the enemies. If too far, the enemies won't point to the player nor shoot, but wander aimlessly (or by waypoints if you prefer). Make an additional field for the enemies, called reload. Reload is reduced by one in each frame, and wh...

Re: Moving the background

Thank you for the help, if you could explain a little between my code and yours i´d be glad, thank you.

How did you put the bullet firing in the same direction?

By the way the enemies are coming to the ship and they are piling each other.

Thank you :P
