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"

Super Monkey Ball Control System

I'm working on a Super Monkey Ball-esque game, and the movement system has been giving me a bit of trouble. I've figured out that the stage always pivots around the ball, and I've actually implemented that (pics of the blueprints below). However, the way that function works, the stage does not snap back to the origin when I let go of the joystick (using an XBox 360 controller for movement).

The question: How do I alter this function, or make a new one, to have the stage pivot around the ball but have the rotation correspond to the joystick position? I assume it's a more direct wiring of joystick values to the rotation values, but I can't figure out how to do that while maintaining the pivot-around-the-ball feature.

Extra tidbit: I'm pretty sure that in Super Monkey Ball, the stage really only tilts in the direction the camera is facing, maybe a little backward if you pull back. Besides that, the joystick just rotates the camera. I'd like to try and implement that system as well as an option for this game, but think it'd be better to give the player the option of a self-controlled camera. Just thought I'd throw that out there!
