RE: Lights
I make something like you say using time and then change position but i dont like this effect I must try maybe with 2 lights point or better set time. Thanks for help.
I have a general question to programing.
You use private variables in your structure:
For example:
Quote:struct ITEM : Game::Item
{
public:
// manage
void create(Game::ObjParams &obj);

// draw
void draw ();
void drawIcon(Vec2 &pos);

// io
void save(File &f);
Bool load(File &f);
//get private data
inline Byte getType(){return type;}
inline Byte getType2(){return type2;}
inline Char getName(){return name[32];}
inline Flt getAttack(){return attack;}
inline Flt getDefense(){return defense;}
inline Image* getIcon(){return icon;}
//designer
ITEM();

private:
Char name[32];
Byte type;
Byte type2;
Flt attack;
Flt weight;
Flt defense;
Image *icon;
};
What do you think about it use it or no i single player game?
And what about ilnine functions?

RE: Lights
you can't use MEMBER on methods,
please check "properties" tutorial in GUI
to see how to work with member/data description and methods
DataDesc::setFunc will be used
