  1. I am trying to make a platformer mod of the first tutorial platformer, and this is my first time working with phaser. I am attempting to have diamonds spawn from the sky on a timer, that the player may collect. Everything except the spawning of diamonds seems to be working correctly, my code is as follows: <!--The sprites and some of the movement controls for this game come from this tutorial: --> <!doctype html> <html lang="en"> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8" /> <title>Phaser - Making your first game, part 9</title> <script type="text/javascript" src="js/phaser.min.js"></script> <style type="text/css"> body { margin: 0; } </style> </head> <body> <script type="text/javascript"> //sets up a game, setting the area of play and loading it in var game = new Phaser.Game(800, 600, Phaser.AUTO, '', { preload: preload, create: create, update: update }); //loads what will be needed for the game before the game starts function preload() { game.load.image('sky', 'assets/sky.png'); game.load.image('ground', 'assets/platform.png'); game.load.image('diamond', 'assets/diamond.png'); game.load.spritesheet('dude', 'assets/dude.png', 32, 48); } //here I can set variables that can be accesses by create, //much like putting in variables before calling them in unity var player; var platforms; //directional keys to use for movement var cursors; var score = 0; var scoreString = ''; var scoreText var scoreText; var firingTimer = 0; //uses the preloaded items and other lines of code to make the beef of the game function create() { game.add.sprite(0, 0, 'sky'); //enables arcade physics game.physics.startSystem(Phaser.Physics.ARCADE); diamonds =; diamonds.enableBody = true; diamonds.createMultiple(30, 'diamond'); diamonds.setAll('anchor.x', 350); diamonds.setAll('anchor.y', 350); diamonds.setAll('outOfBoundsKill', true); diamonds.setAll('checkWorldBounds', true); // The score scoreString = 'Score : '; scoreText = game.add.text(10, 10, scoreString + score, { font: '34px Arial', fill: '#fff' }); //background //will contain the ground platforms =; //any object in the platforms group will have a body platforms.enableBody = true; // Here is where the ground is created var ground = platforms.create(0, - 64, 'ground'); // Scale it to fit the width of the game (the original sprite is 400x32 in size) ground.scale.setTo(2, 2); // This stops the ground from falling away when you jump on it ground.body.immovable = true; // The player and its settings player = game.add.sprite(350, 400, 'dude'); // We need to enable physics on the player game.physics.arcade.enable(player); // Player physics properties. player.body.bounce.y = 0.2; player.body.gravity.y = 600; player.body.collideWorldBounds = true; //Our two animations, walking left and right. player.animations.add('left', [0, 1, 2, 3], 10, true); player.animations.add('right', [5, 6, 7, 8], 10, true); //controls cursors = game.input.keyboard.createCursorKeys(); } function update() { console.log(firingTimer); // Collide the player with the ground game.physics.arcade.collide(player, platforms); // Reset the players velocity (movement) //this means that if no keys are pressed, the player will //remain in place player.body.velocity.x = 0; //if the left arrow is pressed, add velocity to the player and play an animation if (cursors.left.isDown) { // Move to the left player.body.velocity.x = -400;'left'); } //if the right arrow is pressed, add velocity to the player and play an animation else if (cursors.right.isDown) { // Move to the right player.body.velocity.x = 400;'right'); } else //if no keys are pressed. animation is set to one constant frame //and no velocity is added { //Stand still player.animations.stop(); //sets player's frame to the one facing forward player.frame = 4; } // Allow the player to jump if they are touching the ground. if (cursors.up.isDown && player.body.touching.down) { player.body.velocity.y = -350; } if ( > firingTimer) { //enemyfires generateDiamond(); } game.physics.arcade.overlap(diamonds , player, aquireDiamond, null, this); } function generateDiamond(){ diamond = diamonds.getFirstExists(false); if(diamond){ diamond.reset(350, 350); firingTimer = + 2000; diamond.body.gravity.y = 200; } } function aquireDiamond(player,diamond){ diamond.kill (); score+=100; scoreText.text = scoreString + score; Debug.log //if time = certain amount then spawn diamond in random //position above screen and let it fall, it will not stay on the ground } </script> </body> </html>
