    hitTest problems

    cbunbury20 Level 1

      hello guys i hope you are having a great day


      i am having problems with my hit Test, when my character reaches the planting spot, collision only activates when he is walking down, and not with the desired object, it should wait for axe anim to triger, a movieclip to make contact with parcela 1 and it would do the action before i bring the axe down and then toon, gets stuck in planting place!!


      here piece of code


      this.on("tick", contactoparcela1.bind(this));

      function contactoparcela1(evt) {

      //this.caveman.x ++;

      //this.mono1.x += 2

      if (arar1 == 0) {

      var pt = this.mono1.frente.espada.hacha.target.localToLocal(this.mono1.frente.espada.hacha.target. x,

      this.mono1.frente.espada.hacha.target.y, this.parcela1);

      if (this.parcela1.hitTest(pt.x, pt.y)) {




      //this.malo1.x += 2;












      here is running :

          Having three tick listeners seems like it could cause problems. You could have one listener and do several hitTest().


          When you run into the coin I think it's continuing to add money. Setting something to be invisible won't stop the hitTest() from happening.


          Watch the error console while you play the game to see when it starts giving errors.

            I put all on one tick, i not worried about the coin for now, i guess i will move its x and y to outside the window, or find the delete movie clip equivalent, i still havent find that great animate tutorial


            i put all in one tick, and still have same problem, it would seem that i have like a infinite loop when i hit the ground, but i am not using the loop word




            the error the console spits, i believe its about not finding a movie clip, because i have a left, front, and right, movie clips when it turns, and when you play the action its on its event some clips arent there, like if toon is front, i get 2 errors from the side movie clip trying to execute also the action, but i only want to execute the movie clip that is present, so thats why it trigers


            I also added a big transparent buton on top of stage for toon action, so if you select axe or mazze, it will execute it.



            tyvm for help

              See how it gets stuck https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=LCNm-pGxtB4



              I added move function to another tick, so even worst why would it empty my speed variable, if collision is in another function?!

                It was working ok, with my console statements, where evaluate for the direccion variables wich stores dw for down, up for up, etc. and thats how toon moves and i could see it in the console, so after my colision, i would get and get "console errors on the code


                this.uparrow.addEventListener("mouseout", moverout.bind(this));


                function moverout() {


                walking = 0;

                direccion = ""

                console.log(this.direccion);  //I TRY THIS WITH OUT ;. WITOUHT THIS, AND IT WOULD STILL ERROR REPORTED.



                So i had to comment out all my console statements and then it executed fine... but spooky... now i can do my collision, keep walking and keep doing stuff.


                Thank you Collin
