Unhappy Constrain to face or Turn to face problems - 04-25-2010, 10:54 PM

Hi! I am having huge problems with both the turn to face and constrain to face methods. I am trying to make a zombie face my main character so that, no matter where the character goes, the zombie will always try to follow him...however, insted of facing the character and moving toward his direction, the zombie does this wierd thing where it shifts around for a second(as if it is confused) until it decides on some random direction to go that is no where near the direction of the character. What is the problem? Please help.

Thanx Ranchman! That was funny...and wierd. But it did work, though, so it may not be a computer error, I hope.

Some notes:

I really hope this problem is not due to my using windows vista.

I set the vehicle for the camera to the pharoah, so that the player will stay behind the pharoah.

What is asSeenBy for anyway?

And also, I am wondering if what I am doing with the pharoah is affecting the zombie? Do you think?

I found at least 1 problem, THe Pharaoh's center is not the pharaoh himself, so the zombie wont actually face him. If you right click on the Pharaoh and get a good look at it with the camera, he camera will fly off behind him and he isnt in sight.

ANd a tip, when making turning and running buttons, right click the clicked on event, and change the event to a "while a button is held type" that will make animations smoother and your game easier because your guy will only do the action while the button is held. ANd change all actions the pharaoh does to abruptly as well.

I cant find where the zombie actually faces the pharaoh in your script, so i am not too helpful.
Lastly, your awesome at animating, good job.

I fixed up the penguin game for the heck of it, and i wanna post it.
