Character Movement
Hey,

If I want to manually move a CHR by a specific vector... without affecting the CHR's direction... how do I do that?

In the tutorials, I see:

input.anglei.x=Kb.b(KB_Q)-Kb.b(KB_E);
input.anglei.y=Kb.b(KB_T)-Kb.b(KB_G);
input.diri .x=Kb.b(KB_D)-Kb.b(KB_A);
input.diri .z=Kb.b(KB_W)-Kb.b(KB_S);

If I set these manually.. I can force movements.. but... I can still only make the CHR move in the direction it is facing...

Basically.. I am looking for something along the lines of...

position = position + velocity

thanks

Re: Character Movement
I can make a simple helper Vec2 which would apply custom velocity, but the problem would be with automatic detection for the animations.

as of now the animation detection is determined from the 'input' and not the target velocity.

so by adding Vec2 the player would move where you want, but with no automatic animations for movement.

if you want automatic animation detection according to Vec2 please wait, coz it will require rewriting the character animations calculations..
