Hey gang, Bobert here. This is the next episode of OGMAG…
Continuing on I’ll show off another old tutorial game from Game Maker’s Apprentice.
TANKS (2P Edition)
Tanks features 2 Player split screen gameplay, where two humans would duke it out locally featuring different guns and stuff.
Game Maker’s Apprentice would teach me about the quirky Game Maker 8.1’s view system. Basically, view’s are like the “camera” and you adjust how much space you want it to look at. Once you figured out your view, you would then have to use the view’s Port to properly display that “footage” onto the screen. By manipulating both, you can have split screen gameplay, as well as a
really ugly really awesome mini-map.
(So basically, view 1 is following player 1, view 2 is following player 2, and view 3 covers the entire room.
Then you just have view 1 ported to the left, view 2 to the right, and view 3 shrunk into the bottom center of the window)
It’s funny that GMA would teach me about a tank shooter, especially since years ago before this was made I had tried to make a much older predecessor to this one.
I might as well leave this old tune my brother made for the older tanks game.
