Help using touch GUI for axis movement
« on: July 10, 2014, 06:40:15 PM »
I'm now onto making my second mobile game. This time its a side scroller. For starting out, I followed this tutorial : (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0shjECpuDI).

Everything works well on PC but I can't figure out how to make my character move on mobile. I have designed a D-Pad GUI texture. I also have 2 invisible GUI textures on either side of the D-pad (this is what the player actually touches to activate left or right movement),

The tutorial uses a horizontal axis input for movement, Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an option for this on mobile. Is there any way to connect my GUI texture to horizontal movement using a Touch GUI action?

*Long story short, I'm just trying to figure out what actions to use  in order to make my touch D-Pad function.
