[Request] laser beam in 2d
« on: March 12, 2015, 04:29:39 PM »
Hi everyone. I apologize if this is a simple one but I have had problems finding tutorials on making laser beams in 2d mode using playmaker. I heard that using ray cast was not efficient in 2d mode but I'm not sure if that's the case.

Just to clarify, I am looking to make a beam weapon that shoots out from my ship and hits my enemies in a solid straight line (think Star Trek).

If anyone knows where I could find this info I would surely appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

The idea behind a laser and the bullet are the same.  Lasers are just a really long bullet.
