Platform engine using Box2D – Step 2

Read all posts about "" game

After publishing Platform engine using Box2D, my attempt to replicate the Rick Triqui‘s main character continues.

Now you can move the guy with left and right arrows, aim the bazooka with the mouse and shoot a bullet clicking on the mouse.

The bazooka isn’t a Box2D object because I didn’t need to include it into the physics world, so it’s just a sprite, like the pills in Mazeroll game.

This is the source code, still uncommented (I’ll made the tutorial when I’ll have the character jumping and textured)

package {
	import flash.display.Sprite;
	import flash.events.Event;
	import Box2D.Dynamics.*;
	import Box2D.Collision.*;
	import Box2D.Collision.Shapes.*;
	import Box2D.Common.Math.*;
	import General.Input;
	import flash.events.MouseEvent;
	public class HelloWorld extends Sprite {
		public var m_world:b2World;
		public var pixels_in_a_meter:int=30;
		public var bodyDef:b2BodyDef;
		public var boxDef:b2PolygonDef;
		public var m_input:Input;
		public var xspeed:int=0;
		public var bazooka:zooka=new zooka();

		var body:b2Body;
		public function HelloWorld() {
			addEventListener(Event.ENTER_FRAME, Update, false, 0, true);
			var worldAABB:b2AABB = new b2AABB();
			worldAABB.lowerBound.Set(-100.0, -100.0);
			worldAABB.upperBound.Set(100.0, 100.0);
			var gravity:b2Vec2=new b2Vec2(0.0,10.0);
			var doSleep:Boolean=true;

			var bodyDef:b2BodyDef;

			var circleDef:b2CircleDef;
			square_tile(250,395,500,10);
			hero(100,370,20,40);
			// Box2D input class - why should I bother making my one?
			m_sprite = new Sprite();
			addChild(m_sprite);
			// input
			m_input=new Input(m_sprite);
			addChild(bazooka);
			stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, shoot);
		}
		public function shoot(event:Event) {
			bodyDef = new b2BodyDef();
			bodyDef.position.Set((bazooka.x+(bazooka.width+3)*Math.cos(bazooka_angle))/pixels_in_a_meter, (bazooka.y+(bazooka.width+3)*Math.sin(bazooka_angle))/pixels_in_a_meter);
			boxDef = new b2PolygonDef();
			boxDef.SetAsBox(0.1,0.1);
			boxDef.friction=0.3;
			boxDef.density=0.1;
			body=m_world.CreateBody(bodyDef);
			body.CreateShape(boxDef);
			body.SetMassFromShapes();
			body.ApplyImpulse(new b2Vec2(Math.cos(bazooka_angle)/pixels_in_a_meter, Math.sin(bazooka_angle)/pixels_in_a_meter),body.GetWorldCenter());
		}
		public function square_tile(px:int,py:int,w:int,h:int) {
			bodyDef = new b2BodyDef();
			bodyDef.position.Set(px/pixels_in_a_meter, py/pixels_in_a_meter);

			body.CreateShape(boxDef);
			body.SetMassFromShapes();
		}
		public function hero(px:int, py:int, w:int, h:int) {
			bodyDef = new b2BodyDef();
			bodyDef.position.Set(px/pixels_in_a_meter, py/pixels_in_a_meter);
			boxDef = new b2PolygonDef();
			boxDef.SetAsBox(real_pixels(w), real_pixels(h));
			boxDef.density=1.0;
			boxDef.friction=0.3;
			boxDef.restitution=0.2;
			bodyDef.userData = new Sprite();
			bodyDef.userData.name="Player";
			body=m_world.CreateBody(bodyDef);
			body.SetBullet(true);
			body.CreateShape(boxDef);
			body.SetMassFromShapes();
		}
		public function real_pixels(n:int) {
			return (n/pixels_in_a_meter/2);
		}
		public function Update(e:Event):void {
			m_world.Step(1/30, 10);
			xspeed=0;
			for (var bb:b2Body = m_world.m_bodyList; bb; bb = bb.m_next) {
				if (bb.GetUserData()!=null) {
					if (Input.isKeyDown(39)) {
						xspeed=3;
					} else if (Input.isKeyDown(37)) {
						xspeed=-3;
					}
					if (xspeed) {
						bb.WakeUp();
						bb.m_linearVelocity.x=xspeed;
					}
					bb.m_sweep.a=0;
					bazooka.x=bb.m_userData.x=bb.GetPosition().x*30;
					bazooka.y=bb.m_userData.y=bb.GetPosition().y*30;
					var dist_x=bazooka.x-mouseX;
					var dist_y=bazooka.y-mouseY;
					bazooka_angle=Math.atan2(- dist_y,- dist_x);
					bazooka.rotation=bazooka_angle*57.2957795;
				}
			}
			Input.update();
		}
	}
}

And this is the result:

Left/Right to move, mouse to aim and shoot.
