Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

mamoniem has made a great step by step tutorial of an enemy that moves between points A and B. He goes into great detail in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=341kvrXgikk

I don't know much about Paper 2D but the logic for this should be quite simple. You would just have a variable for its position that it's being constantly updated. For example say that you have variable X for the horizontal position and you have another variable dx which is how fast you want it to move. Every tick you would add dx to X, but under certain condition, say reaching a certain point, you would turn dx negative which means that now your object should go in the opposite direction and once again when it reaches a certain point you would turn dx positive back again.
