Sprites
Hi all,
Totally new here, so sorry for may be newbie question.
In a Gui, is it possible to have a sprite instead of a static image?
Playing with the Gui editor, I didn't find something for this.

Thanks
Spyros

Re: Sprites
Welcome to the forum!

Could you tell more about the sprite instead of an image? Do you mean an animated image?
If yes, then you'd need to check out the gui tutorial with extending the gui object classess and programming manual drawing. There you should manually program drawing animated images

Re: Sprites
Thanks for your quick reply,
Yes, I mean animated images.
My game is an Adventure and I need those images (items, cursors, puzzles).
Well, I.m not much of a coder (mostly graphics stuff),
but I'll try figure it out.

Thanks again,
Spyros

Re: Sprites
You can do it like this:

initialize:
Memb<Image*> images;

load:
images.New()=Images("frame1");
images.New()=Images("frame2");
images.New()=Images("frame3");


draw:
if(Int elements=images.elms())
{
Int frame=Trunc(Tm.time())%elements;
images[frame].draw(..);
}

something more or less like it smile
