Exclamation Skateboarding trick need help please :) ! - 10-25-2009, 11:49 AM

ok first off thank you for looking at my post! but my problem is, i am making a skateboarding game and so far all is well, i have 4 tricks that my guy can do..
1. Ollie
2. Kick Flip
3. Front Side 180
4. 360 Shove it

in order to do these tricks you press space to ollie and while in the air you press another button to do a trick (tricks 2-4)
but now i am wanting to make another trick called the 360 flip (tre flip) and i can't do it! the trick involves, do together: turn 2 revolutions and roll 1 revolution.. when i do it, it makes the skateboard fling around and not land flat? i can't understand why? pleaseee help! HERE IS A LINK OF THE TRICK!

You'll probably need to put a pivot object in the center of the skateboard and have it turn and roll as seen by the pivot object. You could also just have the skateboard stand up at the end of the trick (stand up is a method near the bottom of the method list).

When i click stand up the skateboard turns so it is in between his legs and what do you mean by a pivet object? if this is what you mean i tried to put a cone with the opacity of 0 in the middle of the board and put as seen by and it still did the same thing

That is what I meant, but it should work if done properly, unless the problem is with the change in orientation when rolling (which is more difficult to fix).

Go ahead and upload your world and I'll see which one it is, alright?

That'll be tough, since there's really no function to detect when the guy is on the ramp and no built-in way to make him follow the course of the ramp upwards. Those two things can be created, though by using combinations of the built-in functions. I'll see if I can demonstrate when I find out what the skateboard problem is.

Here's the world with the tre flip trick and a VERY CRUDE ramp-turning method (it's crude because the only way it works is if you skate forward to exactly the cener of the ramp, which is why I moved the skater so he's already pointed at the ramp's center). Hopefully it'll give you some idea of how to make a proper ramp-turning method.

By the way, have you tried version 3.1 of Resident Penguin yet? That's my best work yet.
