Player won't move

Post by stevenshepherd » Wed Jul 18, 2018 4:21 am

I must be missing something really obvious because I didn't have this issue with earlier versions of NESmaker. I created a player with idle and moving animation types. I have set its speed. action step 0 is idle, action step 1 is move. I copied over the adventure movement scripts over like the newest tutorial suggested. I loaded those scripts, and then put them in with the input editor. But when I go to play the game, my character just stands there despite me entering inputs. I have gone through the videos to make sure I am not missing something. Not sure how I managed to screw this up haha!

Humm sounds you did everything.
Check again your player speed in object details.
Check again you assigned correctly the movement scripts (to « maingame », on press... and on release)
And finally, check your screen, that your player is not on a simple block tile (but on null walk).

Thanks! I checked all of those and they seem good. Did I miss something about having to also load a physics engine or something? or assigning the keyboard arrows as input buttons in the emulator?

Everything looks good to me.
how is your HUD, is it correctly set ? (HUD Area - Height: 2, minimum, Width: the whole width)
Which version do you use ? The « pi empty » version ?

The emulator is? Fceux? (You could try to load another nes rom to check if controls are ok)

Yep I set the HUD, although I am less sure about that so I'll go back and check that.

Just using the default emulator

Ah ok, this must be the emulator.
I will do some tests.
You should download fceux, install and configure it like in the video https://youtu.be/D24fxPMKke8 (around 09:55)
I’s Best emulator for tests and debugging.

But if you want to use the native emulator, try « escape » key to know all the controls.

Great!
It might work also on the NESMaker’s default emulator but controls are not « friendly ». I prefer fceux, there are a lot of features for devs.
