Oh nothing spectacular.
I was just going to mention it on my very sporadically updated website.
ah thanks

i just had a thought about the enemy aiming logic so im probably gonna make another update :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

currently the enemys are allowed to turn 180 but if I prevent this it should hopefully stop them getting into that loop where they keep doing a 180 turn for a while

gonna try an experiment ....
Hmm, I've been kind of relying on that feature to be any good at the game... :oops:

whatever works is cool :D

ive been trying to think up some enemy aim logic that will allow enemys to find ladybug while avoid turning into blocked paths and not use too many cpu cycles

or maybe I should just leave it alone as it plays ok right now and might get too diffucult if the enemys are better at finding a path to ladybug

i cant figure it out how to use github :( so i'll post here

build 2508 - changes to player controls

my ladybug controls have always been a little weird
if you turn before a corner the ladybug could either keep moving in the current direction until the corner is reached and then turn in the direction or could move backwards away from the direction you intended to go

so I have tried to fix it and now if you press a direction before youre at a corner then ladybug will continue in its current direction until the corner is reached and then turn

its still weird but slightly better ?
 
FILES DELETED



----- edit ---- this might be worse ? ladybug seems too slippery now
i need to think about this

----- edit 2 ---- yeah this was junk, now deleted
