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"

Sidescroller Enemy Spawning

Here's what would like:

  • Enemies spawn at specific locations (or just random locations as long as they're generally evenly spaced...)

  • Enemies only spawn outside the screen.

  • The enemies that spawn are random (from an array of possible enemies for each level)

  • Enemies should chase you, but once they are far enough outside of the screen they should be destroyed.

I tried having the enemies spawn every so often and set the location to be within a certain range ahead of my character. Problem was, if I stop running enemies keep spawning and creating a cluster of enemies in front of me. I want the player to be able to put down the controller and not have to worry about coming back to a giant mob. We also wanted the player to be able to run back and forth (left and right) through the level and keep killing enemies indefinitely.

Anyone have any ideas of how to handle this? My brain can't figure this one out...
