 gpdrummer13 Guest   Status: Posts: n/a help with simple game - 04-30-2009, 07:39 PM im making a simple car game for a school project. the point of the game is to drive down the street and hit ramps. But i cant get he car to jump when the car comes in contact with the ramps. any help on this would be greatly appreciated

You need some logical statement that rotates your car the right amount to make it apear to be running on the ramp.

 HisWorld Guest   Status: Posts: n/a 05-01-2009, 08:13 PM maybe i should have said "conditional" statements i.e. using if - else, or while

In my project I put if my vehicle got 0metres above from a cylinder, it would do my first method, but nothing happened
