Platform Shooter and AI engine
After seeing countless people asking about this in the novice Q&A I decided I would make one. Probaly the most complete platform engine on the GMC. Also contains a fully working platform shooter engine.
This engine has been through many version and has really evolved over the past few years, and it has been years (started 2008). As a result of this evolution, old code artifacts from earlier versions are still in this game. So from time to time, you may come across some redundant objects or pieces of code. Also different styles of coding are present, mainly due to my own development.
I have recently update the engine again (15/09/2011) This adds many cool features, ragdoll and physics using the GMphysic's EXT which I have included in the new download. The GM physic's EXT is pretty limited, but it eliminates the need for DLL's, something I haven't learned to use yet.
I want to put the history of the engine in, so this is the earliest version I can find:
Download old Version 1
I actually prefer the way the AI works in this version, even though it's simpler, it feels more tidy. Also the melee attack was cool.
old Platform Shooter
This was a platform shooter engine I made. This engine was born when I decided to merge the 2 engines together.
The controls are:
WASD to move.
Left click to shoot.
Mouse wheel to cycle weapons.
Right mouse to throw grenades, hold down to build up more power.
Q adds a silencer to your gun (Dunno why this is in there, it does not affect gun stats).
Space goes in to a slow mo thing (I think I was playing Red Dead).
R restarts the game.

If you see your name here, but don't know why, you probably inadvertently gave me some code.
