  1. Hi Been working on a top down car game for quite a while and creating my own render using 2d canvas. Looked at pixiJS and decided to update the render with that to get the benefit from webGL and perhaps other nice useful features that I don't know about yet. I create tiles in photoshop, draw the map in many layers in Tiled and then in my game I pre render all background layers and my foreground layers into 2 large canvases stored in memory which I then use to draw what the player sees based on my camera that is tracking the hero. Now that I'm switching to pixiJS I'm confused ab
  2. I started working on a top down racing game as fun project a while back. I didn't use any game framework. Only node.js, express.js, socket.io and bunch of node modules and webpack. I got a working prototype where I can drive around and get real time sync between players that was good enough for now. The next thing I started on was collision detection. After a while I realised that I need some framework for it rather than create my own thing. After some research I started looking at phaser and finally bought box2d plugin for phaser which included a simple top down racing game as a example. I sp
  3. Hi. I'm using tiled to create maps for my game. I want to create polygons in the tile collisions editor so when I place a certain tile, lets say a curve with a fence I always want a collision poly along the fence. Currently my curve is made of 6x6 tiles so I load the curve as a tile map in tiled. The tile collisions editor only allow me to add objects per tile. I want a object on the entire tile map instead so whenever I place a curve I get the collision part too. If I would make my tile map into a single tile the problem is that I have to draw 6x tile columns and rows outside the camera
  4. Thanks a lot for your replies. I was able to get a really nice result after fiddling around with the ideas I got from your replies and example.
  5. Hi I have a scaling question. I'm working on a multiplayer tile based driving game where the camera is following the car. I want players to see the same of the map regardless of their screen resolution. So for example if I have 1024x768 as my base size and tiles are 64x64 pixels which will mean 1024 / 64 = 16 tile cols will be visible to the player. If someone opens my game with 1280x1080 as their resolution I don't want them to see 1280 / 64 = 20 tiles but instead scale the graphics and tiles to 1280 / 16 = 80 x 80 pixels per tile. Is there any automated way of doing this or do I need to
  6. Hi I'm working on a top down racing game. Yesterday I decided to buy the box2d plugin for phaser to get collision physics. There is a simple top down racing game included as a tutorial which I tried out and the collision part was good enough for my needs. But the actual driving physics were not because it was more like a spaceship. If you would stop pressing forward the car would continue in current direction until slowed down. But when I turn during this sliding a car should go where the wheels point and not in its current direction like a spaceship. So I decided to add my own drivi
