DEMO: Thex Grapple Hook Demo

Recently my internet was off. A good whole week passed before it turned on.  In those 7 days I produced 10 tutorial games and 2 demo games that I felt would benefit the community. They show off different things you can do with the engine and teach intermediate learners how to bridge to advanced systems design. Novices and beginners can also benefit by checking out the systems.

I will later be posting design tutorials that teach you the different parts that make up many of the systems I have created. I also plan on creating video tutorials that teach new and beginner eventers how to reach intermediate eventing quicker than ever before!

Lets get into it!

What is this?

This is a demo that shows off a grapple hook firing into a wood column. You can then cross that grapple hook.

I spliced the rope from the RTP and added a grapple hook end myself. I tweaked it a little to better show motion.  Credit is appreciated if using the custom graphics.

It uses an event for each part of the rope and the hook. It mostly relies on the event to animate it.  Give it a try. It's pretty neat!

Sweet, do you have a script for it? I want to implement that in a game of mine. I want to do a Mystic Quest kind of game, like having a sword, axe, etc. like in MQ to interact with stuff.. or like Lufia style.

 Ah cool, I downloaded the demo. So what do you do exactly to make the event work like that?

Open the demo, look at the events, and do what they do. =]

Alrighty, I took a look at it earlier. I'll figure it out later.. cool demo, it'll be useful to learn it so I can make my Mystic Quest remake.

I've been at it for a while and I'm just having trouble getting the rope animation after the hook passes through the event to stay horizontal when I make it go right and left.

EDIT: Nevermind, I figured out that the transition from the $Grapple Hook right and $Rope don't mix too well It looks a bit funky but I got it to work.
