2 player game
« on: 2006-06-30, 03:55:33 PM »
is there ANY possible way to make a 2 player game in sgdk?  not splitscreen, not internet/lan, but 2 controllable players and only one moves the map? (like in the old sonic the hedgehog games sonic moves the map, tails can be controlled separately)

That's much easier than two different players.  You just need a player sprite and another sprite controlled by script using keyboard input.

if you understand hte basics of.. well. visual basics.. you can download my game and root through the script file and extract the left over 2player code left in the script.vbs file (i believe i left it in). or, if you have more ambition, you could look through some old posts, because most, if not all, of my game's script is somewhere on the forum.

That was the intent of the 2-player demo.  See: http://gamedevprj.sourceforge.net/files/GD2Player.zip
