Lower heat, lightly oil the pan, and flip them when they start to bubble a little bit. Should be about 30 seconds or so. If they don't bubble within 30ish seconds then turn your heat up sightly.

How to stitch together sprites in GML to build a single sprite. For example, legs and torso of a person being separate sprite because the torso does multiple animations such as shooting, reloading, and the legs need to just be runnin' legs.

Draw the parts in Flash (in the general size you want your sprite to be), make all the limbs into groups or better, symbols in a library, rotate them as needed and export the posed parts as .PNGs and make your sprite strips out of them. Not quite as crisp as pixel art, but effective.

Hey guys
I'm new to game maker and i'm working on an engine for a platformer. So far, I have variable jumping and movement. I wanted to implement ledge grabbing next but I just can't find any sort of help/tutorial explaining this so I was wondering if I could get help over here. My collision checking for my blocks in done like so (if anyone finds this relevant:
//When colliding with the object stop moving
move_contact_solid(direction,0)
if place_meeting(x,y+1,obj_block) then vspeed=0
if place_meeting(x,y-1,obj_block) then vspeed=0
if place_meeting(x+1,y,obj_block) then hspeed=0
if place_meeting(x-1,y,obj_block) then hspeed=0

Thanks in advance

I'd like a tutorial on how to use data structures in Game Maker (esp ds_list). I keep reading that they're better than arrays, but I can't figure out how to use them similarly to arrays..

Does anyone here know where I can find a tutorial for 3D game development in Java? I pretty much only want to do so for the learning experience, as I'll probably be pretty much forced to just use Unity in the long run (I've searched for months and have found tutorials for only Unity 3d and GameMaker). Even so, I'd like to know HOW 3D game development works behind the scenes, just in case, you know. A tutorial explaining platformer games specifically would be nice. I'm also willing to put in the effort to learn other languages if need be, but I'd like the majority of programming to be done in Java if possible.

Has it all. For C++, though, but it might be of an use.

The key to a great pancake is to keep them on medium heat, butter (real butter!!!!!) the pan, and only flip them when the bubbles stop reforming. It will look like mini craters in the top of the pancake.

Enjoy!

All pancakes aside, what I would really like to see is a tutorial about the creation of segmented enemies, like worms, which probably involves using trigonometry in much more powerful way than I can imagine.

Hopefully I haven't been spamming everywhere with questions, but I would love to see a tutorial that goes more in depth with wall collisions in an overhead game.

What I'm talking about can be seen in a game like Chrono Trigger. Push Crono up towards a the edge of a table, and he will hug the edge of the table until the path is clear. Run up to the middle of the table, and he does not do this.

From what I can tell, when Crono is near the edge of something (a table, the edge of a wall, etc), he basically slides along the X axis closer to the edge, until his path is clear. He even can do this around rounded objects - for instance, if you're running to the right behind a tent at the Millennial Fair, you will see him slide along the back of the tent until his path is clear and he will keep running right.

I've seen plenty of tutorials cover the basics of player collisions with walls and objects, but have yet to find a tutorial that goes into making these collisions more graceful and forgiving. Right now, if I'm not on the edge, my character will come to a halt. Even worse, if the bounding box is an ellipse, he will get caught at some odd positions until another direction is pressed in conjunction with the current direction.
