    Phaser headless

    Hello! I'm really intrigued by the idea of having a node server running phaser as authority for a multiplayer game. I'm not sure if thats a viable option or possible at all. So I'm asking if anyone tried that before? What really is the purpose of headless? I found this package, which looked promising.

    Flip of figure

    You could tween all the points not on the diagonal line to the opposite points. https://jsfiddle.net/a68Qp/313/ But there's probably some translation matrix wizardry that'll do it better
  3. My guess is that these filters requires pixi v4, but idk. If its possible to extract the shader code from them that would be awesome! Keep me posted
  4. Added the filter to a sprite of the phaser logo. It did something alright. Changing the filter properties didn't seem to do anything whats so ever. I have little to no knowledge with shaders, so i have no idea whats going on.
  5. @samme Sorry but could elaborate abit on that? Wouldn't that require to swap pixi v3 with v4?
  6. This question has been brought up before but most threads I could find were relatively old, so i thought i might bring it up. I'm wanting to do a lightweight multiplayer platform shooter and i'm thinking running some authorative physics/logic on the server would be the best approach. But after digging around abit it didn't look that feasible with arcade physics. Like in this thread where its stated that running phaser headless is a bad idea. Do someone have experience with this, and to keep things as fast as possible and relatively scaleable, what would be the best approach to a game like this? Thanks
  7. In your game are the enemies scattered around the map outside of the camera boundaries? If so enabling autoculling on the enemy sprites might solve some performance hits. https://photonstorm.github.io/phaser-ce/Phaser.Component.AutoCull.html If the enemy class do alot in its update method then that might be a problem too. Killing and reviving the enemy when outside camera boundaries is another solution. You should look into object pooling. http://www.melkybee.com/blog/2015/05/17/object-pooling-example-in-phaser/
  8. @Raggar @vtange Great examples! This is definetity what i'm looking for. I'm thinking it would probably be easier to implement it with a 3d phsyics engine. But probably better performance wise with something like p2. Im not sure. Thanks everyone!
  9. I've been looking for a framework for an idea i have. I want to create a 2d platformer with 3d objects for web and mobile. Babylon is attractive, but i'm unsure if there are any physics engine that can handle constraints and also suitable for a platformer in that way. Any ideas? Is unity the best way to go here? Thanks
  10. I have a class that extends phaser.sprite, and in update i want to do something to the object that its body is touching. Is there a way to get the sprite/object from body.touching? .. If that makes sense.
  11. Hello! I want to implement the equivalent of p2's distance constraint with arcade, but I'm having trouble getting started. Most of the information I could find about this was the physics part, which i can't really wrap my head around. But since arcade have the velocity and the gravity acting on that object, i thought this might be simple to do. I'm basically trying to do a simple rope swing (tarzan) with a constant distance between the player and a point, much like a pendulum. Does anyone here know how to do something like this? Thanks
  12. Is this project going obselete? There hasn´t been any update since 2.4.4 and im wondering if this project is dead. I tried to contact them about the 2.6.2 update a couple of days ago, but I haven´t got any answered as of yet.
  13. @hexus Yeah it totally makes sense. But wouldnt roundPixels take care of that?
  14. After some messing around, it seems like you get this effect only when the game is scaled by a non-integer.
  15. Thanks for the reply! @BlitZ - I've experimented with different sizes, but it didn't seem to change anything. I also tried to make sure that the canvas width and height can't be an odd number to make sure aspect and pixels per row are allways the same. (since 480x320 %2 == 0) @samme - The game gets scaled. In other words the canvas and everything with it. I could do it the other way around, but that seem like unnecessary work. @douglas - I can't quite see the relevance. Are you saying i have to create sprites from a tileset?
  16. So i've encountered a problem when it comes to rendering low res sprites and upscaling in phaser. I'm pretty sure this issue has been tackled many times, but i haven't found any good solutions to it. The problem is that some pixels are getting wider than others. Like this: My game is at 480x320 and im scaling the game with SHOW_ALL. I've tried settin roundPixels to true and various CSS tricks. But nothing seem to change. Anybody know a swift solution to this? Thanks!

    one jump.

    Since update is checking for if keyjump.isDown, you can rather add a function when input is pressed. Add this in create method: keyJump.onDown.add(someJumpFunction, this); http://phaser.io/examples/v2/input/keyboard-hotkeys
  18. Hallois Is there a way to dynamically change speeds with multiple points in a tween? Lets say i have this tween: game.add.tween(sprite).to({x:[400, 200],y:[400, 200]},1000); The problem here is that the speed will differ when moving to n position in array since the distance gets shorter. Is there a way around this? I could use onUpdateCallback function and detect when the tween is moving to a new position in array, but I can't seem to find a way to do that. Any ideas? Thanks
  19. @flahhi Are you sure its caused by post-rendering? Have you monitored what eats up the process?
  20. @Starcluster You want to set worldbounds to be equals or smaller than the screensize? You can use viewport to get it; http://phaser.io/examples/v2/display/viewport.
  21. If you want the canvas to rescale to screensize you can use game.scale.scaleMode = Phaser.ScaleManager.SHOW_ALL; in your preload.
  22. @jilonor Yes. There isn't much difference between forcing to webgl or canvas when using tilemaps. Canvas might perform abit better on phones. This is how i fixed it: function tilemaps() { map = game.add.tilemap('level_1'); spriteBatch = new Phaser.SpriteBatch(game.world); blockedLayer = map.createLayer('blockedLayer'); spriteBatch.add(blockedLayer); background = game.add.tileSprite(0, 0, 768, 288, 'background'); foreground = game.add.sprite(0, 0, 'foreground'); map.setCollisionBetween(0, 12, true, 'blockedLayer'); }
  23. @rcoaxil Thanks for your suggestion. I tried using spritebatch but they didn't render with the camera. Instead it resultet with black parts where it should've rendered. (I might have done this wrong) Anyways, I tried something else which worked. I added the tilelayers inside a spritebatch that isn't put to stage. Then i export an image from Tiles and then handling them as a sprite overlay. It might be a strange way to do it, but it improves the performance significantly,
  24. @nobody Afaik canvas has to render for every layer, which means that it has to render twice as much as with one. And then ofcourse its better to use as few layers as possible. I think its abit missleading to not adress this with the tilemap examples. The best solution is probably to not use tilemaps at all, and rather use another third party program that stores sprites properties. Like overlap2d, or mighteditor.
  25. Has anyone else encountered this before? I've tried some approaches, like stripping everything down to one layer and using tilesprites as background/foreground layers. It helps, but not close to what I want. I also tried phaser-tiled, it helps, but it doesn't support arcade physics yet. There probably are some rendering techniques I'm overlooking, but I'm not that experienced with Pixi. Any input is appreciated! Thanks!
