    request )grappling hook

    ive seen alot of games that have grappling hooks. but i havent found any tutorials. some have said that u can manipulate the platform swing but i dont know enough math to do that.

    some ways that it could be used

    1. launching a chain unto somthing in order to swing

    2. a sling shot effect could be used when attached to a certain objet and manipulated properly.

    3. a weight effect like pulling a high lever

    4. a pull effect in pulling things from far away

    5 a grab effect from far away.

    some refrences

    metroid
    castlevania
    ristar
    super mario galaxy

    im sure alot of other people would benifit from this extension besides me

    so could anyone PLEASE please please make this extension

    I don't think its really an extension to do this.

    Check out http://www.create-games.com/home.asp and cruise thru the articles. I have seen many games with grappling hooks over the years so its possible to do.

    First, learn the Phizix extension. It's not too hard to pick up by looking at the examples. If you wish, I'll make an example for you.

    We appreciate extension requests. That does give a better idea of what users need and what they want to do.

    I think that, if there were an extension to help you with that, it would most likely be a chain, (remember the old chain object?) and the rest would be about eventing it.

    Well, in all honesty and with all due respect, if you want a good looking game, or a game with a nice gameplay feature, you have to put some effort into creating it--there's no extension that will magically adjust your code to your game, or create the latter for you.

    Look over here--this forum is filled with examples:
