what if the gravity script command could receive one value to control gravity strength? that combined with set_player_xspeed  and set_player_yspeed could be the starting point for water physics.
but the water side effects (like air limited to 30 seconds, stopping the countdown when leaving the water or breathing from a separate bubble object) would require the use of on_timeout. i can think of a way to use objects with the sprites of the numbers to give the countdown and kill the player.

one parent object, maybe "Water Master"
this only operates if player is in the water. otherwise is idle.
this one has 31 states, sorted from 31 to 0 . the first 27 states are just meant to play a "tick" sound and change to the next state after a 1 second timeout.

states 3, 2 and 1would also show a graphic with the number of seconds remaining, and number 3 would start the "air out" music. no ticks here.

number 0 obviously kills the player. child bubbles can be added to make drowning more believable.

Make the zindex of those walls 0.1, Wrath. It should fix that.

Water is a bit more complex than that. Perhaps you can make some sketches using the object system already, but in the end, it's best to have water built-in in the engine.

indeed. but i still believe that being able to change gravity strength would be a good feature in scripting. it could lead to very interesting effects, not only water. maybe a low gravity monitor that lets you jump higher and fall slower for a limited time. or a high gravity monitor that limits jumping and makes you fall faster

I'm making a game about a blue cartoon rat. I must have made some terrible life choices.

Re: Sonic and the Magical Stone (9-10-2010) - Download Demo : )

I couldn't download it. MediaFire removed the file permanently because it violated their Terms of Service in a way that it can't be reinstated. I most recommend DropBox. If you can't seem to contact MediaFire and ask what parts of the TOS that the file violated, you can use DropBox instead.

Also, sonicquest.zxq.net might not exist anymore. It redirected me to the "Name not resolved" error.

Can you please fix it? I know you might not be as active as you used to anymore, but I wanted to play the game please.

EDIT: Um, he's not responding.
