    There is some AI for jumping enemies?
    Like in a 2D shooter where the enemies go get the player.

    How do you build your levels? Is each tile a prefab that you simply drag a script to?

    I planning some new enemy scripts (and rework the current one) but there won't be any real pathfinding anytime soon. But some simple ai (if possible to jump over things then jump) is no problem

    @bluefire
    The framework is made for the player and everything that affects him. To make a level you add the 2DPlayer prefab (or your own) and use any level creation tool of your choice. Any 2D tileeditor in the assetstore should do it. Or, for more fancy level, use ragespline.
    But there is no editor built into this package, since there are editors out there which are much better than anything I could think of.

    AI_can_move is this one to set AI to move or stay in one position ? Because after i switch it on or off AI is moving.

    good evening everyone!

    i have tried building the project for android (until now i've only built the exe), and i get the following errors :
    Assets/Imported/2DJumpNRunFramework/TemplateScenes/DoodleJumpishFiles/create_jumppads.js(30,48): BCE0019: 'Length' is not a member of 'Object'.
    Assets/Imported/2DJumpNRunFramework/TemplateScenes/DoodleJumpishFiles/create_jumppads.js(32,27): BCE0048: Type 'Object' does not support slicing.

    Replying to my own post :
    Just a simple syntax thingie. I have re-written the script in C# and got rid of the errors anyway :).
    If samb88 wants to integrate the scripts into his package I can provide.

    Yes, C# is the only way to fix this right now :) My current advice was to just delete the sample file. But of course, I would use the C# file if you provide it.

    Playing around with gravity right now. I don't know if this will ever work but if so, then the player could walk on any surface on any rotation. You could even do something like sonic, that the player can run up walls with enough speed. I will work on this for the next three days. If it won't work perfectly after three days I will continue with other features first :)

    Hi Samb88, you got a ''RoadMap'' or something talking about new features ?
    By the way you can develop custom ones ?
    Thank's in advance;

    Could someone explain the exact steps needed to make smoothmoves work with e.g. the rage spline level in jump 'n run, the manual is kind of hazy... Thanks!

    Samb88, I'd like to know if you will/could work on platformer advanced featured.
    By "advanced" I mean features for making more advanced platformer like "Flashback" (action/adventure). So we would not be limited to a basic platformer. It's not a critic about your work, because it's awesome, but I always see platformer kit and it's always the same kind. But if you add more advanced features, it will make people think this asset is better!

    I give you a little example about "advanced features":

    -Inventory system
    -Possibility to use object from inventory to unlock things, event
    -possibility to use key form keyboard to use object/trigger object (like open door)
    -Warp system for change player location (triggerzone warp)
    -Condition system/Switch system for manage event

    I really with this it will be possible to make simple/basic or advanced platformer,
    I know it's a lot of work, but I need your opinion on it.

    Hey Samb, why you did not used the CharacterController? The character would be more controllable that way.

    Hey all,
    implemented vertical movement script. It's a script file of it's own so maybe some programmers can learn from it how to add something to the framework :)


    Next version will be uploaded soon. Just wanna try out some more new features.

    Samb88,
    Can you expand/clarify a bit on your SmoothMoves script? I don't understand how to implement your framework with the bone animations. I've swapped out "Animation2D" for the "AnimationSM" script and edited it, as per the instructions in the script and manual, but am still lost on what to do next.

    *Edit*

    Ok, I've more or less figured it out.
    Also, I'd like to point out that at line 413 in "PlayerJumping.js" there is no addition of playerMovement.plus_rotate_angle

    So if you have both a "playerMovement.plus_rotate_angle" modifier and use playerJumping.rotate_in_air, your character will lose the modifier while jumping or falling.

    Code should be:
    playerMovement.player_graphic_pointer.eulerAngles.y=(90*Mathf.Sign(playerMovement.return_real_axis().x))+playerMovement.plus_rotate_angle;

    Thanks for the Framework :) I'm enjoying it.

    @grambo Thanks! Will add that! Also I will implement the basic playback code for smooth moves and a testscene in the next version. Should solve the problem some smooth moves users have :)

    Hey Saamb sooooo glad to see you still working on this.

    Any chance you could implement a pick up object, visibly carry object, and drop/throw that object? i tried working on a system and just could not get the object to attach in the proper orientation.
    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    I am using the basic jumpOnly scene to create my game. However I would like to detach the player and the camera. This is because if he hits an object I would like him to stop while the camera keeps moving creating a sense of urgency. If the player leaves the sceeen to the left you die.

    I have found the move_with_player variable. However if I set this to false, it seems to revert back to true no matter what I do. I guess this is to do with how the script is imported on run-time. Any ideas?

    Any help is very much appreciated

    Thanks

    Will

    Any help please?

    Hi,
    I'm having some problems.

    I couldn't run my project because of an error in the joystick script regarding "touch" which I couldn't figure out.
    I'm a bit out of date so I upgraded Unity and your latest version of the Run and Jump framework and now it's completely screwed and all I get is broken shader pink and a sea of error messages I can't fix.

    I still have the old project (Thank you Time Machine!) and have gone back to it, but what in the world do I do about the new Run and Jump framework?
    Thanks

    I was wondering if we can integrate this pack with 2D Toolkit in-order to be able to use the different features of 2DTK like atlas, Tile-Map editor, 2D collision ... etc.

    any plan for this?

    Here is the exact error I get:
    NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
    PlayerCrouching.Update () (at Assets/2DJumpNRunFramework/Scripts/PlayerCrouching.js:19)

    At PlayerCrouching, line 19:
    18: function Update () {
    19: if(playerMovement.current_mode==playerStates.Idle || playerMovement.current_mode==playerStates.Walking || ...All other states}

    so I guess my problem comes from the "playerMovement" which is not defined? (it's in the function start above but doens't seems to work!)
    here it is:
    function Start () {
    playerMovement = GetComponent(PlayerMovement) as PlayerMovement;
    collider_size_temp = GetComponent(CapsuleCollider).height;
    }

    Before your Smooth Moves integration I had managed to get it working myself with a few tweaks to the scripts here and there... I was hoping someone could post some step by step instructions to get your smooth moves character correctly implemented in the new framework... It would be nice not to have everything breaking whenever I update! Thanks in advance! :)

    I'm come back to Run and Jump after a year away and it's going OK.

    One problem I'm having though is my Simple Enemies no longer chase my 2D Player. I remember (or think I do!) that they chased the player before. I've checked the settings and downloaded a clean version into a new project but the same thing happens there too.

    The Player is selected in the AI, the sight thing looks fine, I'm baffled.

    Anyone know the fix?

    Thanks guys.

    Thanks KeepTrying but I'm on a Mac and all updated as far as possible.

    I re-downloaded the latest version of Run and Jump into a new project and loaded testsceneragespline but the enemies are still totally uninterested in chasing my player.

    Do your Simple enemies actually chase your 2D player? Mine just run about!

    I'm using Unity 3.5.7f6 and the latest Jump n Run release.
    As far as i know the enemies only chase when you got in front of then.
    Because when you start to play in that scene you spawn in the back of enemy, so he can't see you.

    Select simpleEnemy on hierarchy panel and look at AImovement script and attack_target option.

    Hey all,
    send a new version to unity. Maybe it will be online before christmas!

    It's a really important fix update that throws the old collision system overboard and uses a much better and more stable system. So no more "stuttering" while running into wall etc.

    Update Notes:
    "1.65:
    - Added Vertical Movement Demo
    - Improved player collision"

    I will try to fix some more things and add a really big component to the framework, that is online multiplayer. It's like.. my 10th try to make an authoritative server, if I can't get it to work I will offer a non authoritative server solution. Just keep in mind, that a non authoritative server is not useable for competition games!

    So yeah, thats the update for now. Since I had some rough weeks I will read the thread and see what everyone had to write :)

    Have a nice christmas!

    -Samb

    THANK YOU!!!

    On a side note, if you could implement pick up and drop (like in Super Mario Bros 2) you would be my hero!
    Man I love this kit.
    Ur the best!
    B

    New collision system eh? You go with raycasting or something?
    Can't wait to dig into it.

    I tried testing out "couch", however I couldn't get it to work. Is there a button i press for it? Does crouch work like a sliding crouch? Similar to say MegaMan? or Mario 3? There's a 2.5d kit that has a slide mechanic however I found it to be pretty buggy.
    I'll admit it's been a while since I've dove into this kit. I've been tied down with other projects but finally am free to invest some time! Will the Gibberish script play nice with this kit?

    @Samb88, I was researching collisions and you just play this great news <> Big Thanks! :D

    @parnell open the scene < testsceneragespline > press < Play > and press < Arrow Down > to see that movement, the script is < PlayerCrouching > ( the last one attached to < 2DPlayer > thank me later :)

    Doh!
    I always just test in the testscene not testsceneragespline:p

    Thanks for the heads up:)
    So the crouch is like a Mario crouch and less like a Megaman Crouch/slide.
    I wonder if I can modify the "crouch" state so that if the player hits the jump button or shoot button he'd slide in the direction he's facing.
    Something I going to try to figure out.
    I've been trying to get the character to pick up and drop items (like blocks). I think it opens up a huge range of puzzle/platform mechanics which I think is much more interesting.
    Cool stuff!
