Over the holidays I purchased GM 8.1 and the GM companion book to go along with it and so far this book has been amazingly helpful to me, seriously its a darn good book. Alas though I seem to have run into an issue I have no idea how to fix. I'm currently working on the Zool tutorial and have run into an issue in chapter 5 dealing with the Bee enemy. In his step, step event it calls for this.
Include a Step Avoiding action (move tab) that steps toward the point X=targetx,
Y=obj_zool.y, at a Speed of 10 and avoids all instances.
It appears in game maker 8.1 this even no longer exist and after doing some looking around it seems for a good reason. I'm wondering if anyone would know of a script or a different set of actions that would help the bee object avoid other objects while it's following zool. Many thanks to those that are able to help!
