Different walk speed according to direction?

  • #1, by fulviovMonday, 02. February 2015, 00:50 5 years ago
    Hi,
    I have tried to search for this option but I could not find it - is it possible to set different walk speeds according to the actor walking up/down or left/right?
    All SCUMM games have the up/down speed set to half the speed of the right/left direction to give a false sense of perspective, and without this setting it just feels weird in some scenes.
    Thanks in advance smile

    Hmm it should already move less the smaller the character scale is on the scene. But er yeah you could write a little script to check current direction of character to set the speed; however it won't work in the current public build because changing character speed will not do anything. You will be able to change speed in the next release though.

    Scale does move the character less, but I'd like to have a general setting where up/down is 50% of the speed of left/right, to emulate the "SCUMM feeling" smile
    Good to know that I will be able to script it in the next release - thanks!

    hmm you could technically do that without scripting. Go to the walk animation you want to adjust speed for & click on the footstep icon. Now adjust the movement for each frame.
