2D Toolkit Custom FlipX Action
« on: October 26, 2012, 03:18:12 AM »
Just made a new one. This is for the 2D ToolKit FlipX() function. I'm sure most of you already have a better solution, but I didn't find one on this forum so I just made my own.

I posted a picture about how to use it.

1) First I set a variable
2) I named mine Flip because that's the only function it will be used for.
3) I set the value of the int to 0. 0 being the "original" flip direction. on this animation, its left.
4) My states look like this.
5) My right states has these action.
6) First i selected the variable the action has to check
7) Here is a basic If statement and IF the flip variable is 0 (which is left for me) it does the .FlipX() to flip the animation.
8) If the character was flipped, the action sets the flip variable to 1 (1 being right for me)
9) Next is the left side
10) Flip variable is selected like before
11) and in this if the flip var is set to 1 the action will make the animation flip to the other side
12) And now if the animation was flipped the action will set the Flip var to 0 again.

This works like a charm for me. And hopefully someone else is looking for something like this :)

        public FsmInt ifFlipVarIs;
        public FsmInt setInt;

        tk2dAnimatedSprite anim;

        public override void Reset()
            gameObject = null;
            intFlipVariable = null;
            ifFlipVarIs = null;
            setInt = null;

        public override void OnEnter()
            GameObject go = Fsm.GetOwnerDefaultTarget(gameObject);
            anim = go.GetComponent<tk2dAnimatedSprite>();

        void FlipSprite()
            if (intFlipVariable.Value == ifFlipVarIs.Value)
                intFlipVariable.Value = setInt.Value;
