Playmaker + Mecanim - 8 Way movement (Video)
« on: November 06, 2014, 08:23:53 AM »
Hello :)

I'm currently working on my own game in unity with mecanim and playmaker and somehow I can't get my character to move properly.
My animations alls work out well and are played but I can't walk upright. just horizontal or vertical straight.

my FSM looks like this:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/2trbo913elk9qp6/Sequence%2001.flv?dl=0

the problem is
1 the uprights movements dont work and I cant move in any direction
2 the roll behaviour is wrong it dont behaves to the actual axis of the player but to my or lets say "world" diections so when the player runs left and I press up the roll dont goes to his left side but to my left side.

hope someone can help me.
sincerely
Soul

Assuming you have two inputs (direction and speed) mapped to their corresponding keys, you could simplify your Animator FSM by using a 2D Freeform Cartesian Blend Tree: left goes to direction -1 and rear goes to speed -1 (or whatever you choose to call your inputs).

My guess is your input is not producing the desired values. An 8-way movement matrix (plus Idle) should be like this one:

[-1,1][0,1][1,1]
[-1,0][0,0][1,0]
[-1,-1][0,-1][1,-1]
